Amir already stated that the 96db measurement is 1db before clipping and warning indicator showed up.
For this price point and for nearfield Desktop usage paired with a kh750 and ma1 its dificult to get any betterRidicilously good due to measurements, the question is if these are really the end game speakers (well, in desktop category).
I think that comparing them to less linear Adam A7V or Focal Solo 6 may be actually surprising.
For listening, not mixing ofc
If possible get the KH120ii. I also have the KH80 for E-piano but the bigger one gives a more fullrange bass response and is no problem to listen to in 1m distance.This or KH80 for recreational nearfield usage? (1 meter ish). I assume KH80 would be the wiser choice.
If it is only the cooling effect of air puffs, who cares? Especially in summer. I would see the port of the 120 as a backup for some use cases, but in general the 120 shall be supported by a set of subs.Ports shouldn't do this. If they have that much velocity... That's not great.
The point is, at the point where FR reaches, say, +-1.5-2 dB deviation in 80-12k Hz range with good directivety etc etc it becomes "adequate" while still can have some character to it, preferred to one person or another. And some specific benefits (or rather deviations but considered as "good") of non-convetional tweeters use (like ADAM ribbons or inverted Be dome) which at the end gets described as "better imaging" or "better reproduced fine details", "air" etc.
That's actually not that far from a pair of KH 310s price but yes, "desktopness"For this price point and for nearfield Desktop usage paired with a kh750 and ma1 its dificult to get any better
A pair of 8030+sub or 8330+sub could compare or then you need to paid more for the coaxial genelecs
Even with sub they are far from identical!With a sub, the performance is more or less identical.
But if I were you, I'd stick with the LS50.
