    Wanted: Tiny Hi-Fi Speakers

    I have a need for 2 tiny hi-fi speakers for my kitchen (Would use PC speakers, but they require a separate power supply). They must be as small as possible (less than 20cm tall) and use normal speaker cable.
    Any recommendations?

    What about car speakers? Possibly drill them to the underside of your benching? Hidden away nicely.

    Not car speakers. It's an expensive kitchen.

    My Dad's been an audiophile for years and uses this company almost exclusively. He's shopped with them off and online.

    So really you are just after a nice pair of passive speakers? What budget you got in mind? How you planing to mount them? Wall / free standing?

    I shop at Richer Sounds, but their smallest speakers are not quite small enough.

    The KEF Egg rears. Mount them sideways. You can buy them indivdually off E-Bay. Dad has just put these up as his rear speakers. They are part of a 5.1 sytem. 245 x 125 x 150mm (satellite). I guess that they are still going to be too big.

    If you can find a place for the sub-woofer, try a BOSE ACOUSTIMASS® 3 speaker system

    The KEF Egg speakers look a bit big though. Any dimensions on them?

    I already have a set of Bose 201 speakers for my main hi-fi\AV setup.

    245 x 125 x 150mm (satellite). That's gonna be too big though. Shame, they look great on the wall.

    You can use PC speakers without power, but they will probably sound very tinny if you don't use a sub. That said so will most truly small speakers.

    As an off the wall suggestion, again assuming you could hide a sub, how about the Wharfedale Loud Panel?

    Sorry, but I've only noticed that it should be an "On The Wall" solution.
