    i'm still looking for a great home-cinema system (within by budget) that can also be good in hi-fi.

    I'll say 80% movies, 20% stereo.

    my short list at the moment is:

    B&W: 603 s3; 601 s3, LCR600 or (4X 602; LCR60/LCR600)

    Dynaudio: 4X 42; 42C or 62; 42; 42C

    Kef: Q5; Q1; Q9C

    Paradigm: Monitor 7; ADP-370; CC-370 or Monitor 9; ADP-370; CC-370

    Equipment:
    Sub Rel Q150
    Sony 44PX2
    Pioneer 757Ai
    Rotel RCD-1070
    Pioneer VSX-2011 (45tx) /Denon 3803 (4ohm/8ohm speaker will matter here)



    Any thoughs??? Don't think i can get a demo on all systems (B&W and Kef are easy, others not - Live in Portugal)

    The other question if i get ether the B&W or the Dynaudio (or anyother) is:

    Should I get a pair of floorstanders for the fronts? Or should i get 4 equal standamounters?

    Remenber that is 80% for movies or more! So what's really important is the performance in that department!

    If you are really interested in HT, than I would go for the floorstanders. The added spls that most of them will bring will be welcome, I am sure.


    Good luck

    If you go floor standers, you may be missing out on being able to run 3 matched speakers accross the front...

    Try both if you can!

    Cheers,
