Just picked up my KEF LS50 Meta speakers... I have them connected to a Sound Artist SA-200ia integrated amplifier with a Node2i as a source playing Quobuz.......I’m dumbfounded! After just two hours of listening to many cuts that I know like the back of my hand, they are magnificent! The bass from a 5.25" drive is freaky good! I have an SVS subwoofer to use with them, but so far I’ve not turned it on. Without any setup, just sitting them on a couple little speaker stands I built for casual listening, placed on the fireplace hearth, the imaging and "air" around instruments is amazing. Vocals rival all the other less expensive speakers I’ve been auditioning. The SA-200ia is turned up to the same place as my Klipsch RP600Ms and ELAC 6.5/2.0....Quite efficient. My Magnapans MMG and KEF 103.2 require much more "volume knob" for the same output. And so far, these speakers bury all of the above! I guess you sometimes really do get what you pay for! More comments to follow, but upon first listen, I think I found my "Forever" speaker!
