    Am on the hunt for a pair of floor standing speakers for general Hifi use - not for AV use. I was looking at whats available for less than £300 and had almost settled on the Mordaunt Short 914 having seen nothing but good things about them. But I've now seen the Mission M35 and am wondering if they might be even better. Does anyone have an opinion or experience of either of these? Will be used in a 3.2x3.4m room with wood flooring and very few soft surfaces. Amplifier is a Musical Fidelity E10.

    I have the MS908s and they are fabulous, but a bit more expensive than what your budget allows - about £499 at Richer Sounds

    Last month hyperfi had a pair of Mission 78se's for less than £300. These were 5star speakers at £900.

    When it comes to budget speakers makers, mission are the best i have heard.

    Best to shop on ebay, and get a bargin, as speakers are the single most important part of a hifi in my opinion.

    CD100 from Jake James in the power buy for 280 are a bargain, i can vouch for that.

    I had a pair of MS 904's and hated them - bought and sold on ebay in a week :eek: Went back to Missions (there was no comparision to my M72 bookshelfs) so bought some Mission M73i floorstanders basically M72's but floorstanders. I love them on a bang for buck rating.

    Why dont you have a look around for second hand stuff as you could get Monitor Audio Silver S6 for around that price and these were £600 new (I have them and they are awesome used to have Mission 780se).

    Also look at some Quad 21L can be had for £3-400 if you catch it right!

    I always buy second hand these days as Value for money is great!

    must agree with gsrai, second hand from good homes is a breeze. And the Quad range are excellent.

    Superfi however are selling Wharfedale evo range with massive discount new - I'd check these out too.

    I bought evo 30's at full price and in my opinion, for the tunes I like, blew away all competition up to £1000, they're down to £400. The 20' and 10's are even cheaper and should suit your MF kit very well - mine are matched with the oval MF gear and sound awesome (the mF gear was all bought second hand).
