I want to improve the sound quality of my tv and i dont want to go down the 5.1 one option and its not ideal. I am thinking of just getting a pair of satellite speakers and getting an amp. any suggestions on a decent pair of sattellite speakers?

if u already have a amp to run the new additions i would recomemnd the mourdaunt short 302i speakers, i have a set in my bed room and they produce a clear and impressive sound stage for such a small speaker.

they are about £112 from richer sounds, but if u fancy a bit more bass try the wharfedale 9.0 £90 again richersounds.

The issue with those Mission speakers is they're designed to be used in this system, which comes with a subwoofer - the subwoofer will handle all the bass requirements. There's only so much bass a speaker of that size can create due to physics so, without the sub, it's not going to sound very good I wouldn't have thought. You're also going to need an amplifier to drive them - did you already have an amp or would you need to buy one included in that budget?

The problem I have is my walls are very thin and i have some pain in the *** next door neighbours so i am just worried about the sub making to much noise. I will also need to purchase a reasonable price amp which is not in my 200 speaker budget. To be honest I don't really have a budget but i dont want to spend to much. Xmas has killed me ;-)

Sounds like I should just go for a 2.1 system then instead of just two stereo speakers. I will obviously need an amp as well but i have a couple i have my eye on. I just dont know what satellite speakers to go for

i am going to sound like a girl now but the satellite speakers need to be black!! ;-)

You certainly don't have to go down the sub route if you're looking at bigger speakers. Even something like the Roth Audio OLi1 speakers (which are just 24cm tall and 15cm wide) will be a big step up from the TV speakers and, cos they are small, they won't be too bassy and annoy your neighbours. Would these fit?

You can also look at active speakers (which don't need an amp) thus strecthing your budget further as you can combine the speaker and amp budget into one. An example of some active speakers are the Audioengine A5s.

I would get a pair of Monitor Audio R90 speakers. MA have just brought out the HD Radius speakers so you could get good deals on the R90s (£175 a pair comfortable from Sevenoaks or similar). I hear what the Prof is saying about not needing a sub if you get bigger, bassier speakers but these are lovely looking speakers and you could use them happily and save up or find a ebay bargain of a sub.

Yup, those look good too - just to make myself a bit clearer, it was only with those tiny Mission M-Cubes I was worried about a lack of sub...

A pair of Quad-lites or Tannoy F1 customs would work fairly well and a budget stereo amp.
