    I was told by my wife that I could buy new speakers if I got rid of my Infinities and bought small sat/sub speakers instead. She likes the idea of mounting them on the wall to open up more floor space. Help me out. I've been looking at the Energy Take 5.1 system and the Paradigm Cinema series. Are these the best for the money??

    The current issue of Sound and Vision magazine has a face-off of some bookshelf-sized speakers. You might want to take a look at it.
    Paradigm has a very good reputation, as well as the Energy system. Another mini/micro system that has a loyal following is the Definitive Technologies ProCinema system:

    Mounting your main speakers on a wall, behind the display device, is not an optimal arrangement, IMO.

    If all you need is floor space you can aleays mount them from the ceiling too.

    If you have the extra $$$, go with the Def Tech Procinema100's. They can mount on the walls and they have a huge soundstage. They are much better than the energy take 5's. They produce more low end just like bookshelf speakers but in a small, compact design. I have the 100's and it feels like they are floorstanding. You may be able to find a good deal for these on ebay.

    What's your budget? If you want some absolutely gorgeous speakers with excellent sound to boot, try out Gallo Nucleus. I believe it's http://www.roundsound.com.

    This is their home theater system:

    I believe these are wall-mountable. I also think there are good reviews at Audioreview.com as well as some magazine websites.
