I do not need a so-called rough or edgy amp or receiver, to drive Focal speakers.
I do not consider them warm, > I consider them neutral, with plenty of detail and
definition and they have good imaging and sound-stage presentation.
If you choose KEF, I would prefer the Q series to the iQ -
However regardless of what you choose, you will still have a decent system.
