So you can be serious about your cinema music:
Several Model A and S combinations are possible.
The awesome 1,850 watt version has 550 watt Model A units as the side speakers.
These are combined with Model S floorstanders or standmounts as rear units, and the S based centre speaker (below in Burgundy)
With the 20Hz bass of the Model A, no sub-woofer is required. This also eliminates the problem of the detached sound given by such units.
Total, with surround sound set discount £3,095.
Or with standmounts as rear speakers £2,995
In practice the precision sound-stage of the Model A side speakers means most people feel they they do not need the centre centre speaker unit.
The power is then 1,600 watts and the discounted price is £2,695.
Or with standmounts as rear speakers £2,595.
Using the Model S floorstanders - shown right - as side speakers still gives 1,250 watts and 25 Hz bass for a five speaker set up.
Or 1,000 watts for a four speaker set up.
With the 25Hz bass of the Model S floorstander, it is unlikely that a sub-woofer will be required. This also eliminates the problem of the detached sound given by such units.
The Model S features the new Carbon Weave Top (above left) on both versions - and also for the ends of the Centre Speaker.
The alternative black leather tops, or or any colour metallic finishes can also be supplied.
Total five speaker (with four floorstanders) set up, with surround sound set discount, £2,195.
Or with standmounts as rear speakers £2,095
Rear standmount speakers can have the height reduced to 35cm and/or reduced depth at 21.5cm.
The centre speaker (below) is 19cm high, 22.5cm deep and 44cm wide.
