Current setup: Yamaha RX-V1400 amp B & W speakers; DM602 S2 Fronts, DM601 S2 surround and DM600 S3 surround back Aaron subwoofer SUB-120 Bose VCS-10 centre speaker Well I’ve been told that I have to get ride of my current speakers and replace them with something smaller or an in wall speaker. I don’t really want the in wall as I want something that can be easily removed if we decide to move. I’m thinking about the Bose Acoustimass speakers. Any other suggestions?

era athena micra mirage nanosat monitor audio radius series some are smaller, some are larger (but still relatively small) and all sound better than bose. remember, it's not that bose sucks but that you can get better sound for the same or less money... that's not the same as sucking, is it? just watch how low the sats go. the smaller the speaker, the less likely they will get down to or below 100Hz which is where they will need to meet and crossover with your sub.

Thanks for the help. After some research I'm thinking about keeping my B & W DM600 S3 and getting 4 more of these. They will have to be small enough; no satellite speaker will be as good as these are. The KEF HTS3001 and the B & W M-1 look good but they are more than I wanted to spend.
