Planning to convert the loft into a Cinema room with plenty of sound proofing going on in there to reduce the leakage of sound and especially Bass.
I have set myself a 20k budget for a speaker setup and currently have the following in mind.
MK S300 (triple fronts
MKS300 T (pair of tripoles, possible 4 for 7.1)
MK X12 sub x2
I have had a demo of this system and it sounds sensational! Mind you the demo room had 8 Subs powering this and it was sheer bliss, not practical in a loft however, so downscaling the subs to 2 only (I know, the shame)
Next package I looked at was the B&W 800 D Series, I have yet to demo this system with its matching Center and Rears. This is where my Dilemma begins....
Most retailers (all so far) who deal with MK, only deal with MK and nothing else, so running a comparison is difficult. Going two weeks between demos will probably skew your memory of that experience.
So my questions is, are the MK speakers worth the money. Is there a better alternative that we can buy in the UK? I am conscious of the import tax on the speakers and often wonder if we are getting true value for money in comparison to other brands that may be equally as good and cheaper. For instance the MA PL300 range
Room dimensions 5.75m (L) x 4.8m (W) x 3m (H). I have not considered the AV processor and power amp yet.
Thank you in advance guys
