5.1 speaker dilemma

Hi folks before I start I'm the sort of person that is never happy i live in the uk and have a 12'x12' living room

My system is as follows mains mission m32i centre mission m3c2 rears mission m30i and a DIY sub 12" ae sealed with a 500w bash amp I also have a second set of m30i in case I want to go 7.1.

The wife always moans about the speakers and the side of the sub. But likes the sound when watching movies. Would I be disappointed and downgrading to buy a set of b&w mt50.

Buy the way my amp is a Sony STR-DN1030

Regards Andy

I've not heard either speaker, hopefully someone can chime in with impressions.

Better still, do you have a shop that will allow you to audition the B&W's in your home?

They both are great speakers. The B&W's are a bit smaller but with the sub will be fairly equivalent. You may not be dissappointed, but it won't be an upgrade either (except in the WAF arena, which may be a BIG upgade: Happy Wife = Happy Life ....).

Happy Listening!!! Listen with an open mind and heart!!!
