Hello Gang,

 

I am thinking of transforming a small room 12 x 11 x 9 into a mini theater for two :)

 

I already have the following

 

- Integra DHC-80.3 Pre/Pro

- Integra DTA 70.1 Amplifier

 

But I was wondering what type of speakers I should buy?

 

- 7 KEF LS50

 

or

 

- 6 MMG from Magnepan plus an MMG C Center Channel Speaker

http://www.magnepan.com/model_MMG  and http://www.magnepan.com/model_MMGC

 

I am also thinking of getting the Panasonic TC-P65ZT60 65-Inch 1080p 600Hz 3D Smart Plasma TV

The Integra amp won't be able to give the Magnepans the juice they need. You're probably better-off going with the KEFs.

Really are they that demanding?

7 JTR single 8's would be a solid choice. Easy to drive with such high efficiency and very dynamic. Not the prettiest speakers in the world however.
