    A local dealer who is just getting into HT to compliment his car audio business would like to set up a M&K 5.1 system for me to audition with a Sherwood Newcastle receiver.
    My question is this, what speakers would be used from M&K's lineup to fit into $1800-$2200 canadian? I find M&K's site confusing.

    What does everyone think of M&K? Do they present a good value?

    I think that they are awesome! I would go with either there 750 set (3 750s 2 550s and 1250 sub) or the new 850 set which was annouced this week. You should be able to get them at 33% off list.

    2 things to think about with me suggestion. Does your Sherwood have good power into 4ohms and a 80hz crossover?

    Can you set these up with a correct vertical axis.

    tweeters across front need to be at ear height or aimed to ear in order to get the most out of this model. They have a wide horizontal axis but for correct imagining the vertical should be dead on.
