Question what 5.0 speakers should i get


Well-known Member
I currently have the Monitor Audio BX range of speakers for 5.1 with BX5s as fronts, BX Center and BXFX as surrounds, these are all around 5/6 years old. I have a Gemini 2 sub and all running from a Sony DTN 1080 amp

Im lpoking to upgrade and have through researching found a few below. Budget wise £1200 but i dont want to waste money for little gain over the BXs, i want a decent upgrade.

Use wise will only be for 5.1.2 (atmos im sorting seperately), mailny streaming & UHD discs, i dont watch TV. Im in a small room 4x4x3m and sit 2.5m away from TV

What i have so far is

Q Accoustics 3050I with the Q3090 Centre & 3010 for rears £850
Monitor Audio Bronze 200 with the bronze C150 Centre & Bronze FX rears £1045
Monitor Audio Silver 200 with the Silver C150 Centre, eventaully the Silver FX rears but this option is already expensive £1374 (£1874 with rears)

I also looked at and discounted the DALI Spector 6 & Spektor vokal and Oberon 5 & oberon vocal dur to teh what hifi reviews for both saying thet Q Accoustic were just that little bit better overall.

I have dismissed the KefQ550 & elac debut 2 but not sure why, just to shorten the list for demoing.

Have i missed anything, or anyone any advice or expericnce, especially the new MA bronze as there so new there are no reviews?
