    Kef R5 vs NHT C4

    I have an NHT set up of C4's in the front, C LCR for the center, and the MS Salatalites for the rears powered by a Denon AVR6700 and Kimber Kable 8tc connects. I am really considering going to the KEF R5 Meta with a KEF R2 Meta for the center. There aren't any dealers in Minnesota where I can...

    B&W 706S2 to KEF R3, M16 or Linton?

    Hello everyone, A search for new speakers is always a challenge. Currently I have the Bowers & Wilkins 706S2 at home as my main stereo setup and I'm somewhat pleased with the sound of them. They sound very good with Jazz but I have the idea that they aren't a relaxed listening. Much details and...

    Kef Corelli? Anyone?

    Hi Folks, Is there anyone here with experience with the Kef Corelli speakers? I can't find a frequency response or distortion measurements. Do you think there is any sense in getting a used pair for something else than love for vintage gear? Thanks!

    " Half- MUON" DIY SOTA-wannabe KEF coax based

    Excuse me if it would be partial repetition from other posts because KEF speakers get discussed here quite extensively but it seems this essence of my question is different and not specifically discussed anywhere.

    Upgrading Sub from KEF-Q400 to REL T7X, does it make sense?

    I’m wondering if upgrading my sub from KEF Q400 to one of the below candidates would have a noticeable impact on the purpose of music listening? In that case which sub (and size) would you go for? - REL T7X - KEF KC62 - I considered SVS Micro 3000 and loved the app, but I don’t like how it...
