    Hi,

    In time I will upgrade my 5.1 amp and speakers and was looking for some pointers.

    It's possible that my amp will be Denon 2805 and wondered what the general opinion was on which speakers might match.

    I need 5.1 for surround and prefer floorstander fronts to eggs (etc) due to music needs.

    Any opinions welcome. Thanks.

    I live in Bristol, the Cardiff assumption is the more common one round this way, but I am a Sky Blue. I'm not ready to get some just yet, the amp is also not bought yet. My local Sevenoaks told me the Accoustic Energy Evo 3 (5.1) costs about £600 and is good. (may have the name wrong)

    The Acoustic Energy's are excellent. If your on about 2805 (or another pretty good amp) then they will do grand. I have Aegis Evo3 + centre+compact and another sub with a Yamaha RXV1500 and well happy. If you want a decent amp, get full range speakers.

    These series contain both floorstanders and bookshelf speakers and seem to be a real contender for the best value product. I think it will be a mistake not to listen to it. Find an API dealer and have a demo. It will be a great combination with the 2805.
