    " 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...

    Can you Bi-Amp from the SAME Amp?

Could I use those to "Bi-Amp" the R3s or do I really need to use 2 different amps? I have two A07 on order for bi-amping. But am skeptical that they...

    Hello! So I have the JBL 590s as Mains. Currently have been testing various options for center ( another 590 is not an option any time soon). The JBL 520c and 530 were not up to par as a center. The Klipsch 504c, RC-64 III and RC-7 have been the ones I have tested more now. So far the RC-7 and...
