    Obviously the ideal solution would be some 2nd hand M&K units but alternatively see if anybody has the Mission 78DS going cheap as they are good sounding, discrete dipole rear speakers. The MS903 comes in at under £200 but as the drivers are all metal, I'm not completely sure how they'll match the Ruarks.

    Thanks for the quick reply :)

    Which M&K's would you recommend I look at? there are so many different models that I'm completely lost.

    did look at the MS903s but I dont really have any experience with the brand, also not to sure what the missions would sound like but would make great side speaker for when I go 7.1 in a year or so.

    It all very confusing :suicude:

    I'll have to hand over to one of the M&K experts at this point but the one that crops up at this price is the S85 (?) and that would be a good start.

    Hi CrispyXuk,

    I have the M&K CS29 which are the Column Surrounds and they are superb sounding, I also know that quite a few people on this forumn own the K4 tripoles which are also extremely good aswell.
    The CS29's Retail for about £1200 & the K4's retail for about £500 i don't know if there are many CS's about 2nd hand but i'm sure there will be k4's.

    BTW: you might be able to get some K4's nearer your £200 mark

    John :)

    Unfortunately that sounds a bit out of my price range :(
