Speakers are a personal taste..in both sound and design....my advice is to find a specialist hi fi dealer (like Sevenoaks) and they will give you a demo of the models you fancy...linking them to similar, if not the same, amp/cd player that you own.

You are under no obligation to purchase but will have a better idea of your requirements and then trawl for the best price....with speakers you end up with what you pay for...cheap ones sound cheap.

Currychops is right.

Personally I have B&W 5.1 surround setup and it's great, not as tweaked or detailed as say Kefs, but has far more depth, great bass.

Listen, judge for yourself.

the trouble I guess is I am linking it with a non hifi system. Its a hitachi AX 140 (as sold by dixons see below) which has a hard drive for mp3 where I keep the muisic. All I was hoping to do was get some black freestanders.

I'm a but if purist audiophile, but high end microsystems have improved alot of late, Hitachi isn't a make I'd attach with high fidelity myself.

If you are willing to spend £500, I'd recommend a £250ish surround amp with radio (perhaps waiting for hdmi amps to fall more) and a £250ish surround speaker bundle.

You can add dvd players, cd players, sky digital phono inputs, mp3 player inputs etc all at later stages.
That is what makes a seperates system so great, you can upgrade induvidual parts as you can afford them/need them etc.

Considering amp and speakers on that set will be worth under £200 imo, 40gb mp3 players for £60 now and dab radios for £15, that stereo only Hitachi isn't a good deal imo.

Get a surround amp and speaker bundle and a cheap mp3 player for now imo (do you really need dab? is your fm reception bad?) that combo surround setup will demolish a £500 stereo system overcharging u for a inbuilt 40gb hdd and dab.

it's worth checking canton CD200 series, they are highly rated speakers

ideally

+ £30 on speaker cables and some phono/optical cables for your Sky/Dvd Player/mp3 player/dab radio etc
