What brands are good when it comes to in-wall speakers?  Any recommendations?

I want one set for surround sound in the lounge, and maybe another set for a second zone.  Not sure if I should go with speakers that are truly in wall or should I just look at mounting book shelf's or some sort of semi-recessed speaker?

I have a set in my lounge. I went with rectangle in-wall models with 8 inch drivers.

I was going to go with 7 speakers but decided it was overkill so have a couple spare if you decide you want to go that way.

Sound quality is very good, not as good as a decent set of full size front speakers but still very good.

Hi, I have installed a modest number of units from JA Audio the products are good quality and priced very keenly, and they are good to deal with.

Hills do a range too.

With any cheaper option though, I'd highly recommend a receiver with a mic setup to electronically compensate with responses that could be all over the place.

Thanks.  Receiver has the mic setup thing if I can find it somewhere in a box :)
