    Bear In mind i cannot demo as theres no where anywhere near me which enables me to do so

    I have narrowed my upgrade down to the 2 choices below what is going to give me the best sound quality mainly for home cinema just looking for general oppions of poss

    Choice 1:

    MISSION VOLARE V63 SPEAKERS (PAIR) £399.95

    MISSION VOLARE V61 SPEAKERS (PAIR) £249.95

    MISSION VOLARE V6AS SUBWOOFER £399.95

    ATACAMA NEXUS SPEAKER STANDS (PAIR) £59.95

    Total £1109

    Choice 2:

    ACOUSTIC ENERGY AEGIS EVO 3 SPEAKERS (PAIR) £299.95

    ACOUSTIC ENERGY AEGIS EVO 1 SPEAKERS (PAIR) £149.95

    MISSION VOLARE V6AS SUBWOOFER £399.95

    ATACAMA NEXUS SPEAKER STANDS (PAIR) £59.95

    Total £909.80


    Along with whatever i choose will be mission M5DS Surrounds for 7.1

    And the reason i chose the mission sub in both packages is simply because i need a nice looking sub and the Accoustic sub is very boxy and ugly unfortunately

    Thanks in advance

    P.S does anyone know of a Wooden centre speaker which is 13.5CM high (MAX)

    when putting my plasma above the mantel i mis judged it slightly and got it abit too low the Mission speaker i have now is exactly 13.5CM and fits perfectly but all the wooden centres i have seen are well over that amount but i would love a wooden centre to go with the rest of the kit

    The M5DSs should work fine as rears.

    I think you'll have trouble finding a centre speaker of those dimensions, especially by mission (best to integrate). My mission 78c is about 17cm high and I would imagine my m7c2 was also about the same height.

    Why not just the accoustic energy speaker package? It's meant to be very nice. I would have a hard time choosing between the two.

    The problem with the accoustic package is

    1: Centre speaker is too big to fit under plasma so have to stick with current centre
    2: The subwoofer is a big black and pretty ugly box which is going to be on show and i wont get away with that :)

    so i chose the fronts and rears from the package and then just changed the sub (dont know much about subs theres maybe a better one to suit that package?)
