Fellow ASR members, I am interested to have 3 Kef R3's for Left Right and Center but most dealers in the Netherlands sell them in pairs.

I thought if someone here is interested we could split a pair. Interested in the black ones and have found some deals with 500 euro per piece.

Any takers?

This is a good strategy, IMO. Hope you find a taker.

If it helps, for the center speaker In my last system I ended up buying a pair of speakers and just kept one in storage. That was still about the same price as buying the matching center channel in the series, and I got a spare speaker.

I am considering also to maybe buy two pairs and keep one spare. But I thought I give it a try here

Looks like I am stuck
Pity that stores don't give the options to get a single one

One question: in order to get proper central sound integration do we have to position it vertically? or doesn't matter.

Due to the coaxial driver of the midrange the frequency response is practically identical between vertical and horizontal positioning


So you can use whichever fits best for your setup practically or aesthetically

Ideally the LCR should be identical. I don't think the Q series driver is of the same quality as the R series one. Also the issue that speakers are only sold in pairs remains...

The R2C is a coaxial 3-way, it performs well. Granted, it's a little more expensive, but it would be easy.

@CrustyToad i remember directing a member in a similar situation (can't remember now if it was the r3 or the ls50 meta) to an online shop in Germany and the guy reported back that they indeed sent him 1 unit in a box cut through the middle!! :facepalm::D
I cannot find the post now but if you search around you might find it. I remember as well that the price was very good too. Good luck!

It is an option, though it is larger and more expensive compared to a single R3

I do remember that and I think I checked the store out. Thanks for the tip @MarcosCh!
Since then they have amended the site and only sell sets of 2.

So I am still looking for someone
