    Some KEF R3 Meta measurements with REW - what can be improved

    Thank’s that’s definitely an option I could play with. Been actively using the regular tone controls lately, and find that it works rather well to broadly tilt the room curve to preference on the fly, although not as good/neat as the loudness normalization.

    Some KEF R3 Meta measurements with REW - what can be improved

    As a follow up around 1 year later, I'm very happy with the R3 Meta/Powernode-combination. I've since gotten the (rather expensive) S3 stands, and also an SVS SB-1000 non pro to compliment the low end. I also did a dive into implementing room correction/PEQs with Umik-1/REW + EQ APO from my...

    Is Nad c399 ok for subwoofer integration?

    Well, bass management is disabled when you leave sub toggled OFF.. then you get full signal to speakers and an automatic 80Hz low pass signal to the sub out. Did you try this?

    Is Nad c399 ok for subwoofer integration?

    Not sure if I’m answering your question, but if the bass management/sub out works the same way as on my Powernode, you can always leave the subwoofer toggled OFF, which will still send a fixed 80Hz lowpass to your sub out, and the full signal to the speakers.

    Tekton M-Lore Speaker Review

    So EA removed Amirs two responses earlier today, and just posted this.

    Tekton M-Lore Speaker Review

    Still a lot of support for Amir coming on the Tekton FB page, despite the removed posts/users.

    Tekton M-Lore Speaker Review

    I get your points, but perhaps it’s just better to let the man bark? He seems to create new lies and misinformation by the day; now also twisting something that Dr. choueiri expressed about Tekton too. That he can’t even quote something said in a truthful and ethical manner now kinda erradicates...

    So now he will ruin the Utah Real Estate business of ‘Mark and Dave’ too :p

    Tekton M-Lore Speaker Review

    I’ve learned to be very careful about approaching/taking on narcissistic bullies (easy to say after the fact).. never underestimate them. They might be in the wrong, but it is almost unfathomable what lengths people with that energy and fighting attitude will go to. Somehow they must be pushed...

    Tekton M-Lore Speaker Review

    Juxtaposing this case with how e.g. Cambridge Audio approached Amir after the initial CXA81 review really shows the difference a more humble and resolving approach can have. Both parts benefits.

    Dali Spektor 1 Review (Bookshelf Speaker)

    Yeah, I would also do what seems/sounds best regarding height. The scale is too big on this photo I have on my phone, but here you see my measurements from the Spektor 2’s firing straight ahead (teal) and when positioned towards me (purple). Some difference in the highs there, the teal curve...

    Dali Spektor 1 Review (Bookshelf Speaker)

    I’ve always found Dalis to sound best when seated a bit above tweeter height. Measurements also indicate to preferably be seated at or above the tweeter-level. As per the Dali instructions the speakers usually work best when positioned to fire straight ahead from the wall, ie not pointing...

    I swapped Ls50 for an R3 meta ….im I imagining

    Based on my experiences with R3 Meta and other speakers (namely Dali recently), my ‘feeling’ is that it might be the directivity - if indeed the LS50’s are a bit wider. Even though the R3 M’s are better than the Spektor 2s I own, and some Opticon 2 MK2’s I’ve demoed alongside my Metas at home...

    Describe your decisive experience that completely changed your view of audiophilia with a comment.

    1. After demoing/testing amps for a year, it eventually clicked that I was chasing the wrong ‘bone’ for getting the sound I wanted. 2. How incredible revealing and humbling a ‘blind test’ can be. I was going away for work for two weeks. Before I left, I had hooked up both my second setup...

    Vintage speakers that hold up

    My dads Bowers & Wilkins DM4’s (produced in the 70’s) still sound quite impressive to my ears. I measured them in the living room too, and they were quite flat and nicely extended in the highs (at least not rolled off). On the caveat side they were a bit weak in the mid-bass, and also lack lower...

    If all speakers measure flat, what is the point of auditioning?

    I say yes to shopping from measurements alone, as this proved to be a huge step forward in my whole approach to speakers and listening experience. But I will add to that preferably when coupled with a certain experience/practical understanding of the different characteristics of the speaker(s)...

    KEF R3 Meta - Review & Measurements by Erin

    Currently away for work, so I don’t have any specific data in front of me. But yes, generally some (broad) filters for the higher frequencies above 2kHz.. my target curve already matches quite well with the natural response here, so the correction is on the gentle side. I do have some uneveness...

    KEF R3 Meta - Review & Measurements by Erin

    I went from the R3 to the R3 Metas. I like the improvements in the Meta version, but it is hard to argue for it’s value proposition vs the original R3’s. Now that I also run PEQ filters, I would probably have been happy with the old R3’s too.

    Speakers KEF R3 equipment match

    For the price-performance and also availability in Norway I could not find anything significantly better without paying probably 2x the amount. An SVS pro or e.g. an Arendal 1961 1s would be nice to have a few PEQ filters to correct the response.. but I do run my system fully corrected from my...
