I'm setting up a 5.1 system in my (big new) office which is basically the loft of my house. I should be completing the deal on a Marantz 5200 reciever shortly and will be using a spare PC as jukebox and DVD/ Games machine. Now, speakers. When I got my main set downstairs I had a Ruark/ B+W sized budget and ended up with Ruark Reference series, which I love to bits. I didn't demo anything cheaper. Now I want to buy a 5.1 package for around £500 but wonder how it will compare. I did have a set of Kef Cresta 1's as rears for a bit and can only say that they were appalling compared to Ruark Epilogues, albiet a quarter of the price. So, if I buy, say the Mission 74 pack (M74,M7C1i, M7DS) will I be equally dissapointed? They look nice but are they worth demoing? Should I look for some better spealers secondhand? It's just so easy to go and order such a package and wait for it to turn up. I really don't want to go around demoing lots of £500 speaker packages although I will demo anything that anyone thinks can match my Ruarks for £500.
