I need some help finding speakers that will work in what must be a pretty typical living room layout. The room: Oblong, 16' x 12'. Fireplace in Middle of one 16 wall with Large sofa running along opposite wall. One 12 end has patio doors and the other has double doors through to dinning room. So the TV has to go in the corner, diagonally opposite the sofa. Existing AV Kit: Sony 32 FQ75 TV with Sony NS900 DVD & Sony VCR. My intention is to add a Sony 1070 AV amp as it seems to have pretty good reviews, sounds pretty good to me, matches everything else and means it keeps the remotes simple. The problem: Ive listened to loads of speakers and love B&W CM Series. BUT, I just borrowed a set to try in the room CM4 fronts, CM2 rear and the CMC centre. Disaster! Firstly, they just look ridiculously big in the room, but worse than that they destroyed the picture on the TV as neither the CM4s or 2s are magnetically shielded. Because of the room layout the fronts have got to be bang up against each side of the TV! So whats the solution? Options Ive thought of so far: 1) B&Ws 600 Series LCR60 S3 and its larger brother LCR600 S3 have been designed with the need for Magnetic Shielding in mind. In the brochure it suggests using 5 of either of the above as an identical set. This sounds pretty sensible to me as it means the timbre of each speaker will obviously match as theyre all the same, and therefore as long as the AV amp has 5 identical amp stages, you should end up with a really well balanced sound with smooth transition of moving sounds around the room. But Ive never seen or heard of anyone running with such a config and not heard it myself. Also, I think its going to look pretty ugly in the room. 2) The wife and I both like the look of Bose AM15s. I like the idea that all the speakers are identical for the same reasons outlined above, in fact, having listened to them Im even more of the mind that this is a good thing. BUT, we both agree they just arent capable of giving you a complete sound mid range seems to be missing and to me they seem to lack detail generally and HF sounds seem very harsh. You also dont have the same Bass and LFE kick thats possible with a Sub. So thats the problem, I reckon it must be a pretty common one, has anybody out there got any sensible ideas? Thanks Andy.
