    okay guys.
    i've been snooping around your forum for awhile and couldn't find the definitive answer to my question.
    i'm coming from a larger home theatre set up, but just moved into a small, old home and my wife refuses to let me put out my large speakers, hsu sub, etc.
    so can you guys offer a suggestion on a VERY small home theatre speaker system?


    i love the hsu research, and how musical it is, and i have large, old klipsch 4.5's that are a bit bright, but sound awesome. i havea marantx sr8000 receiver, a marantz single CD player, a rega turntable and adecent panasonic DVD player.

    now, it looks like i'll need something like the energy act6 or the mirage nanosat systems, as i need to 'hide' these speakers and have them blend in with the crown moldings...
    either of these sound any good? can you guys offer any other suggesiotns in this price range or lower?

    thanks in advance for any help you can offer me.

    B&W Mini-Theatre is very wife friendly as it blends into the decore. You could pickup the M-1 x 5. Also take a look at the Monitor Audio Radius Series.. Radius 90 x 4, plus the 180 centre. [​IMG]

    See if you can keep your Hsu sub, you're going to need it!

    I haven't auditionned the Mirage or Energy speakers, but I have auditionned both the B&W and MA's. Just offering you some additional suggestions before you go and audition for yourself [​IMG]
