I went for a full set of Neat Speakers for a surround sound system, Motive 2 and Motive C at the front and the Iota's for my rears. The Motive 2s I have are piano black and look fantastic, the angle gives that little extra style and directs the sound well towards you. I was pleasantly surprised by the base the speakers could produce by themselves without the use of a sub. My films have never sounded so good with them integrated into a 5.1 system. I noticed so many more new sounds than I had before, it was like watching Star Wars for the first time again and makes you realise how important the sound is to the viewing experience. If I was impressed with the sound with my films with music I was blown away, compared to what I was used to over the last few years with my KEF 2005’s was so marked I wished I’d spent the money on quality speakers earlier. In pure stereo they are great, listening to the Fugees album The Score was a whole new experience, they handled Vangelis’s Blade Runner and Pink Floyd’s The Division Bell with wonderful acuity. Put the amp into Pro-logic with the other Motive speakers and I was just lost in the music of sound! They work for me, and I highly recommend them, I’d give them 5*s as well.
