I am a Castle Comapct 5.1 owner who listens to music more than movies. The current set up plays across width rather than length of the room, at one end of a rectangular lounge/diner. I was thinking of using the pair of current Compact fronts as B speakers (along with the same sub used for the 5.1), to position them at the same end of the room, but on the end rather than side wall and facing down the length of the room toward the dining table at the opposite end. Mt thinking was to replace the fronts with the new Castle Column floorstanders, for two reasons 1) it would solve the problem of trying to find stands for the compacts. I haven't found any a Like and they must have a small footprint 2) I would hope to gain better stereo sound, with more detail, spaciousness, and depth. The more of these boards I read though, the more I wonder if this is my best next step forward. A recent listen in the dealers and the posts on here seem to suggest that my Castle Cube sub could be beaten in terms of its speed and tightness for music (and from the recent listen, more impressive rumblings through the floor on movies, lol). In which case, I ask myself, if I'm going to end up changing the sub then are the Castle Column fronts the best way to go? Any recommended alternatives for fronts, given that the Columns cost £549? They would probaly have to live with my current sub and surrounds for the time being, 'cos of budget. The main criteria is that the must be very slim and have a very small footprint, in which case I imagine they would have to be floorstanders. The rears they would end up with would be wall mounted and as discreet as possible.
