I'm finding the decision of what speakers to buy almost impossible. At a particular price range and spec, there are only a handful of amps and dvd players to choose from and there's probably not too much between them. However, there is a bewildering array of speakers to choose from and demoing them all is not possible in Newcastle upon Tyne. Here's my question. I read a post by Eric who suggested buying a set of QUAD 11Ls as a possibility for an AV system. In my case, this would mean 7 of them with 1 acting as a centre and 4 for surrounds. How would this solution compare to dedicated dipoles and centre speaker? Do HiFi speakers make capable surrounds? I know that surrounds are supposed to "spread" the sound better but in a 7.1 setup is this an issue?
