    :hiya: (just wanted to use that)

    I have been offered these surround sound speakers for £100, are they any good for the money?

    I am only just starting to set up an av system and can't spend any money on improving my setup too much until i have my wedding out of the way.

    I plan to pair them up with a Sony STRDB790 receiver for £250

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Thanks

    Sam

    Hi samsuka
    My brother brought two of these sets 60+ from superfi brand new for 56 quid each they may still have some left ,its worth ringing round a few superfi branches. He brought his from the derby branch.
    The speakers are okay well made and for the price cant grumble.
    He used his on a budget sony receiver and had no trouble driving them even though they are 4ohm speakers.
    Cheers Gonzo.

    Jip, Superfi want to charge me £100 (in London if that makes a difference), cheers for the feedback they should do the job until i can afford something decent.

    How many ohms should they have or is good ( am a complete novice). Does only have 4ohms make them bad? With a good amp will can i make them better?

    Learning a lot here!!

    Cheers

    Hi Samsuka
    The impedance doesnt mean there a bad speaker it just means they take more power to drive efficiently.Being small speakers helps and as i said my bro had no problems running them on his budget sony receiver.
    Cheers Gonzo.

    OK last question ;-)
    I am going to buy the Sony STRDB790 or the Yamaha RX-440RDS and put the Wharfedale Moviestar 60+ speakers on them http://www.superfi.co.uk/index.cfm/page/moreinfo.cfm/Product_ID/1448 which are 4ohm but i also have some Denon (made by Mission) SCM50 http://www.superfi.co.uk/index.cfm/page/moreinfo.cfm/Product_ID/101 which are 6ohms which i was thinking about using as my main speakers as they are a little better (i think). Would this work or am i better to keep my setup all Wharfedale?

    Can i mix and match the ohms' on the speakers on my receiver?

    Thanks for any feedback

    Hi samsuka
    I would just use the movie star on its own, the yamaha amp has an impedance switch on the back that can be switched to 4 ohms but both amps will drive the 60+ ok.
    Cheers Gonzo.
