Separate home cinema speaker packages are a competitive market, with many manufacturers aiming for the compact, affordable market.
Most of us started our home cinema systems this way, with a cheap but decent quality speaker package attached to our first true surround amplifier - a big step up from the all in one packages that had been our experience up til then.
So, its important that the speakers you choose give you exactly that - great quality and a real taste of what can be achieved, yet affordable.
The Canton Movie 125 MX is their latest addition, and it certainly shines. Like most systems of this ilk, it uses four identical speakers for the fronts and rears, and a larger centre with an additional mid/bass unit for extra depth on speech.
The speakers are supported by a 140W actuve subwoofer, and all kit is wired directly into your surround receiver.
Once set up, the Movie 125 MX takes some time to run in..but once it has, the initial harshness disappears and you are presented with a solid soundstage, with good separation and a generous amount of detail at this price range.
Furthermore, it remains balanced even at low and high volumes, and maintains integration with the subwoofer - very impressive at this price range.
The Canton Movie 125 MX comes with it's own set of wall brackets for simply mounting your speakers to the wall. Speaker cable and subwoofer cable are required but are not included.
