    Afternoon again

    Aside from the KEF 2005's and the B&Ws, can anyone recommend a decent sub/sat system for under £400(internet prices).

    I have a fairly small room so def do not want anything remotely bulky, even if it does produce better sounds.

    Cheers in advance.

    Not a heck of a lot at that price, I'm afraid. Mission FS2-AV, maybe?

    The Tannoy FX 5.1 system has done me well over the last 6 months. Am only now getting rid cos I want proper Hifi speakers as the fronts (Kef Q1s).

    Is not a bad setup for around £300 though.

    I've just read in What HiFi of someone who has a pair of stereo KEF Q3s (not too disimilar to my Q35s), and has Kef KHT 2005s as the centres (I think he had two centres) and for rears also.

    What HiFi fully endorsed this set up for both stereo and multichannel use. Would it not cause problems with tonality, seeing as you are mixing large floorstanders with satellites ?

    Yes - Most people have different shaped centre speakers to the main stereo pair but mixing a pair of floorstanders with a diddy satellite is plain silly.

    Bear in mind that 80% plus of a film's dialogue comes from the centre speaker and you will see why I don't think much of the idea.
