Not bad, however I would consider the following for less £ providing you don't mind sticking with Bookshelf speakers:

2x Tannoy Mercury V1i (Front & Rear) £198 http://www.richersounds.com/product/standmount-speakers/tannoy/mercury-v1i/tann-merc-v1i-dk-wal
1x Tannoy Mercury VCi (Center) £119.95 http://www.richersounds.com/product/centre-speakers/tannoy/mercury-vci/tann-mercury-vci-dw
1x Tannoy TS2.10 (Subwoofer) £249 http://homeavdirect.co.uk/tannoy-ts2-10-subwoofer

The speakers come with a 5 year manufactures warranty as standard, Subwoofer comes with 2 years.

£566 total, the subwoofer in this setup is much more powerful and has better bass extension (lower frequency response)

Hot from me, I have a mix of GX/RX and love them.

nice - wish i had the cash

I was thinking of replacing my Wharfedale DX-1 HCP speakers with these for some reason. They look nicer I think. Shame I don't have £700 lying around at the moment because I'd probably bite at this price!

Lots of speakers look good. It's when you close your eyes that actually hear them. Assuming that you want them for more than seemingly impressive car crash sounds, that is.

A reviewer wrote that speakers are more than numbers.........Has to be enjoyable and we all different.
Most audio stores will demo equipment, most of the time they enjoy it.....Always take your time

I love the marketing picture - they've done a lovely job with the installation in that room - all the speaker wires and power cables concealed, rear-bookshelf speakers out of sight, even the AV amp and disc player are out of sight......

Not to mention the fact that the room looks to me built a few miles above ground

They are good but take a look at the HTS201 setup with the 2 front towers / 2 sats Centre & Sub , Really good value & sound for the money @ £329

If you hate 'big and ugly', you can check out the gorgeous Dali Zensor 1 5.1. They are pricey but, boy, the sound! Were you to consider these, explore packages which include an AV receiver. That tends to bring down the price by £300-400

How does the q-accoustics 2000i 5.1 Pack compare? Thinking of getting it with the onkyo nr636 atmos dolby av reciever. Can anyone compare?

I have the Q-Accoustics 2000 (non 'i') 5.1 version with an Onkyo 525 and it sounds fantastic. If you plan on spending that kind of money then definatly go and try before you buy, as individual tastes differ. I originally went in with the Q-Accoustics and Mission MX range in mind, thinking I would like the Mission's more, but the Q-Accoustics blew me away.
#28
Well it was between the tannoy hts 101 or the q-accoustics 2000i. I've chosen to go with the q-accoustics because they are bigger and better sound.

As for the amp, I'm undecided about going for a atmos av receiver onkyo nr636 or the better non atmos receiver the Sony str-dn1050? Is it worth buying the onkyo over the Sony?

Hi I had the same problem.. demoed both at Richersounds and listened to the Onkyo first.
I really wanted to like it, as I was on the brink of purchasing it.The Onkyo amp sounded quite a bit better than my old onkyo 608 with audio and TV viewing. I only listened to Transformers via Dolby Atmos as that is the only Bluray available at the moment, for some reason the dolby atmos demo disc wouldn't work so I never heard that.
I then listened to the Sony 1050 and immediately the soundstage sounded a lot wider, the mid to top was significantly brighter.
There was a significant difference listening to my demo CDs and watching a couple of blu-rays including the transformers film (albeit without Dolby Atmos).
I went home and pondered for a day or so, I decided on the 1050 and purchased it from Richersounds with a 5 year warranty just before xmas and haven't regretted it. If Dolby Atmos really takes off, I may have to consider upgrading before I want to, but in the meantime I am enjoying probably the best receiver for the money available!

Sorry.. Just re-read he thread and realised you wanted to know about the Q-accoustics!
My comment only compared the 2 av receivers (onkyo 636 and Sony 1050)

I have the 2000i speakers on a Denon X2000 and they are superb. I was not overly happy with the sub so sold it and replaced it with a BK Gemini which is miles better.

No they are quite a bit cheaper than the bronze level. Probably have replaced the vector series.

I thought monitor audios are normally a grand or two price wise

They can be but MA make speakers for all budgets and are generally good at any price point. I must admit I've never owned any of the budget or super high end models but have had various models from their silver ranges which I liked a lot and currently use Golds on 3 different set ups and have no intention of trying the competition any time soon! My only concern would be how many corners had to be cut to sell them at this price assuming it's not a huge reduction from RRP but even then I would have thought they would be up there with the best of the competition for the price so probably well worth looking into if this is the budget you have.

This is a great deal. I use to sell their speakers for 10 years and never had an unhappy customer! There are other brands on the market too like Tannoy who do a comparable setup. However you really can't go wrong with this deal. You'll have many years of home cinema fun.

I also still use Monitor Audios GX range at home myself.

I was at a show years ago and heard their 2000 pounds piano finish set wired up to audio lab pre power, the depth and clarity breath taking
