Hello one and all I'm in need of buying advice regarding a low budget speaker package. I can't afford most of the speakers that people rave about on this forum, but anything will be an upgrade on my current set of home-made mdf bodge jobs. I have a sub already that I'm happy with, a nifty passive-radiator design in oak I managed to fluke just right, unlike the sats. So, looking around the sub-£200 for a 5 speaker set with preferably floor standing fronts, it looks like my only options are Gale, Pioneer or Eltax. Can anyone give me UNBIASED opinions on these brands, yes I know they are like the Skoda of the speaker world, but do they really sound that bad? I can always peel the badges off Please, no replies saying "save up for this and that" cos any savings I have will be used for more urgent things, like paying off my big fat mortgage. I have to stick to this low budget. Thanks muchly in advance. L0nz PS the speakers will be driven by a Yamaha RX-V590 prologic amp but this is next in line to be replaced, so it's not much of a factor.
