    Hi guys hope you can help me choose which speakers to get.

    I have a Pioneer DV575A (DVD Player) with the Pioneer VSXC502.
    I use this system to play DVDs and listen to Audio CDs.
    So I'd like a set of speakers that will sound good in movies and make a good job of the music.

    So heres the shortlist:
    Mordaunt Short Genie £699
    Mordaunt Short Premier Plus £499
    Kef KHT-2005.2 £499.99

    I am currently drawn towards the Kef's but am wondering if the Premiers might sound better for music?

    Cheers for you help guys, look forward to the opinions.

    I can certainly vouch for the MS Genies'. They do a splendid job for DVDs and CDs. I have a separate Hifi system and I find that it compares quite favourably - a different sound, but very pleasant.
    My combination is a Denon DVD2200 + Yamaha 757 Amp. I think the biggest difference will come from the DVD player. I know the Pioneer is highly spoken of for movies, but I don't know how it copes with CDs.
    I also run an older Toshiba DVD player, which still produces excellent pictures and movie sound (via Scart to TV), but sounds awful with a CD.

    I can thoroughly recommend the Kefs, I have had mine for ony 2 days and they are superb, even compared the the old Sony SAVE525 without the sub turned on, which I forgot to do when I first connected them up.... doh!

    Whilst they are fantastic for cinema I am not sure they will compare favourably for music listening, suspect a dedicated set of speakers for that will be better which is what I am doing

    I have a definitive technology speaker system for sale in the classifieds. They sound great for music and movies.

    Originally cost me just over £3000, I've got them up for £750

    A real bargain, you wouldn't be disappointed.
