As indicated on other fora I'm currently considering a home cinema sound system round about the £15K level. One setup I have listened to and quite liked: Arcam FMJ DV27 DVD player Arcam FMJ AV8 processor Arcam FMJ P7 power amp B&W Nautilus 803 front speakers B&W Nautilus HTM1 centre speaker B&W Nautilus SCM1 rears M&K MX700 subwoofer As this is the speaker forum we'll try to confine ourselves to speakers. What alternatives ought I to consider? Some obvious possibilities: 1) M&K S150/S150C/SS150, with the advantage of the tripole rear speakers. 2) M&K S150P active speakers (losing the power amp) 3) Meridian DSP5000/DSP5000C/DSP33 active speakers (with no power amp and a meridian 568 processor). 4) REL Stadium (or Stentor?) subwoofer, or perhaps B&W ASW4000 (about which I know nothing). The system will be used for about 90% films and 10% music, but I'm beginning to think that good musical ability may also lead to good sound quality in films in ways that matter to me. I like words such as "clear", "precise", "tight", "neutral", "transparent". What else ought I to be considering or auditioning?
