    Hi, After few years of using Marantz PM6006 with Dynaudio Emit M10 I decided for an upgrade. Because of room specifics I decided to go for Lyngdorf TDAI-1120 with room correction. I also liked their power user capabilities. When it comes to the choice of the speakers I narrowed it down to KEF...

    amp rec: KEF R3, excellent detail and "punch" at low volumes

    I have the KEF R3s and SVS SB1000 sub. When I demo'd these I could hear great detail in the music at low volumes. I believe they were demo'd with Hegel H190. I have the Cambridge CX81 and am not satisfied. I did try the option mentioned on here about the A07 headphone amp, and that was severely...

    KEF R3 + Loxjie A30?

    I want to purchase KEF R3 standmounts. Is Loxjie A30 a good match for them? My setup would look like this [PC usb -> A30 -> R3]. I plan to also get a subwoofer later. Wondering if the grille visible in the photo could affect how they sound anyhow?
