    KEF's are excellent, as are Linn, and Rega. However, The best {up market} speakers are Bowers & Wilkins. If you consider that, B&W are used in every studio, and mixing suite, in Abbey Road...that "speaks" for itself....

    Incidently, our esteemed member, Bez, happens to be a production manager for B&W. They have a wide range, but the B&W "Nautilus" speakers are nothing short of magnificent.

    Re: What are the best speakers?

    Im shopping for a center channel speaker now. Id like to have the B&W to voice match my front speakers but its big and heavy and out of my price range. Ill be wall mounting the speaker.
    Ive narrowed it down to Bose or Boston Acoustics. I know the choice is mine and sound is subjective but I like feedback. Any thoughts ?

    Not all the B&W centers are big...have you seen the whole range ? What have you got for your fronts Nomad ?
    Have you thought of an Inwall speaker ?

    Oh lord, I can scarcely believe I'm about to do this. I shall serve extra time in Purgatory for it, if there isn't a special level reserved in Hell for sins of this magnitude.

    You can manage it with either speaker. Wire a log-variable resistor of approximately 1k to 100k ohm range from the centre speaker to the open channel on your amplifier, and adjust it downward while playing your selected source until you achieve the desired result.

    Ive got B&W's up front & Polk in the rear. Infinity for a sub. The B&W's Ive been looking at are more than I want to pay. Inwall probably not, Ill stick with a standard speaker.

    Re: What are the best speakers?

    Nuther question. Ive got 2 speaker terminals on my B&W's. I have one set of speaker wires running from my reciever to the lower connectors and a gold plated connector hooked up between the two. Is this the same as bi-wiring ? (Dipole)
