    KEF R3 Black, 5 months old, I want to trade for Revel M106

    Hi, Piano Black KEF R3 set. No damage or bumps nicks. (the piano black finish has a few super micro scratches which is typical, very minor - not noticeable and only from someone using a cloth to dust them) Sound great. Have all the original packing for shipping. I am looking to see if anyone...

    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 vs. Philharmonic BMR Grudge Rematch to the Probably not Death Thread

    As none of you recall, I tested the roadshow BMRs that Dennis was kind enough to ship all around the country last year and posted a lengthy thread about the experience. And, I ended up liking them enough to buy a pair. They even unseated my KEF R3s, which I sold shortly after receiving the...

First time building a system, but have been dreaming about it for a long time, so am very excited and looking to build something that I can enjoy at least for a few years before upgrading.

    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?

    Room measurements with KEF R3

    Hi everyone, This is my first attempt to room measurement. My goal is to acoustically optimize the room. I have KEF R3 loudspeakers set up in my living room, standing on speaker stands that are 75cm high. The dimensions of the room are 520cm x 505 x 253 (L x W x H) and that would be 17.06ft x...

    Starting out - KEF R3 or Integrated Amps?

    Hello All, First of all thank you for Amir and rest of the ASR crew and contributors on here. I have found this forum to be extremely useful as I begin the journey. Bit of a dilemma and I wanted to seek some feedback from you. Current Setup: Sonos Arc and my usage is about 60:40 on music to...

    KEF R3 vs Revel M106

    Community, If someone were looking to upgrade speakers at this price point, which would you choose? Seems to be a win-win situation, but is there a compelling reason to choose one over the other? They both measure well with the only notable differences being the upper-mid/high emphasis and...

    Kind of rant regarding what speakers to buy, environmentalism etc.

    Hello everyone, have been lurking this website for the past months. I just moved into my new place, first time living on my own yada yada yada. To get to the point, I am hesitant in buying speakers. In order to not increase my carbon/ecological footprint exponentially, buy one pair of speakers...

    Audio system upgrade - Pairing help

    After 23 years, my first stereo system is slightly starting to wear down (amp stops producing signal to speakers from time to time, speaker foam rings have already been replaced) and I also think it is time for something new, if possible, better than my current setup. All these years I've been...

    BMR Philharmonitor vs. KEF R3

    Hi guys! I am looking for a pair of stereo speakers with a budget of up to $2,000. I recently was made aware of the BMR Philharmonitors' glowing reviews. Since they're a three-way design, in my mind KEF R3s are a natural competitor to the BMRs. Does anyone have a comparison of both speakers...
