    Evening All,

    I am currently running 3 x M&K S85's at the front with a 3801 as a processor and the mighty Rotel RMB-1075 on amplification duty.

    My question to you all is...

    Which speakers shall I get for my rear channels?

    I'm only thinking 5.1 at the minute, but I may add the back channels at a later stage. ;)

    My thoughts so far are as follows:

    M&K S85's
    M&K SS-150 MK II (Pricey and only possible if a miracle occurs soon! :eek: )
    M&K Surround-550 MK II
    M&K K-5's (In white :smashin: )
    Definitive Technology BP1X (In white) - Considering because I've seen a cheap 2nd hand pair, but not sure about integration with the M&K's! :confused:

    I would appreciate any comments/suggestions from you all. :smashin:

    I especially would like to hear from anyone who has used any of the above with the S85's. :)

    Thanks in advance

    Spidey

    SS-150s sound superb with the S85s :D. I would think the next best thing would be some more S85s;)

    Eric's the expert on M&K though.

    The tripole S55 are well worth a listen, they should be a great match.
