I knew nothing about them, but the disc he put in was I think the Twilight Saga, which starts off with a fairly musical introduction.
My wife who didn't want to be there at all, looked up from playing with her phone at this point, and actually started to watch. So that was a good sign.
Anyway, I was impressed, but slightly disappointed that the system being demoed was £750 plus receiver (a basic Yamaha RXV 375), so a full £1,000 in all.
The guy did say they could do a deal, I didn't press the point though, one key feature was that the £750 was exactly equal to buying 5 separate £100 MIIN21s and the £250 sub, so you would think there would be plenty of room to discount.
I guess they must sell quite a few of them because the size is so small and the system was setup, so I guess it's a big seller.
My wife said no to the whole thing, even buying a sound bar, but I'm going to ignore her and do it anyway.
My room measures 7'6 high, 11' deep and 14' long (plus a bay window). So it's small.
The TV (42") is in the corner, and I sit in the middle of the room facing it (on the left seat of the two seater visible in the photo below).http://i.imgur.com/pZl5JcX.jpg
What do you think about placement of speakers and sub with the Minxes?
