I hate to break it to you... ahh, nevermind.
that doesn't sound overpriced.
people need to make a profit.
I splurged on 10 gauge for this amp/speakers, so my $1/foot was ok with me. $20 isn't gonna kill me.
everyone is all sensitive about this guy's review? really?
either you all DO have $5000 speakers and so you're pissed off.
or you only want to spend $750 on speakers, so you're just say, no way these $1200 (real world price) speakers are THAT great.
and if you're neither of those, then go out for some fresh air.
at least the reviewer named other speakers that he is comparing them to, or else, I would agree he'd be a fraud.
He also tested them with SEVERAL sources and several amps avr etc. that sounds to me, like he's legit.
he powered them with everything from a 50wpc avr to a 225wpc amplifier.
comparing speakers to more expensive speakers, well, why not. IT IS SOUND.
you can't compare a focus to a ferrari, unless you are only worried about getting from A to B.
but with Sound, you really can have a speaker for 1500, that sounds better than a 5000 speaker, although, get ready, it's subjective. sound is subjective. this is ONE guy's review.
with that said, there are many reviews that say the same thing, KEF hit a home run, great value, great sound.
The author, I don't know him, I never heard of him... I'm just playing devil's advocate.
