Jim, Dundee

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Even without a sub-woofer, four 9.1s and a 9.1 CS are quite adequate for a room of 20m^2 providing you don't have carpetand you can place one or two of the 9.1's deep in a corner to enhance the bass. When the speakers have been run in, and levels properly balanced, the 5 speakers give a great surround environment with a spatious and reasonably transparent sound stage. The 9.1's can be biwired, and biamped - the latter giving greater clarity in the mid range. The centre speaker is also very capable, and doesn't sound as flat as many that are designed for speech reproduction.
Bad points:
The sw250 sub woofer is now discontinued, so the 9.1AV system isn't available any more which is a real shame (and I'm still trying to pick a replacement for my incomplete setup).
Otherwise there are no major bad points - just some caveats:
* Banana plugs can be used with these speakers, but they are fiddly. If you are not bi-wire/amping then double check that the terminal bridge makes a good contact with the centre of the banana plug's pin at each binding post.
* The diamond 9's design means that all the speakers are deep and have curved sides - this means that they can be difficult to place without stands.
