Hi all, I'm new to the forums, but I've been browsing them for awhile. I'm getting ready to make a small purchase, but it seems the more I learn the less I know.
Anyway, I'm looking to get a pair of front speakers as a start to upgrading my old Cambridge Soundworks 5.1. I've been considering some B&W and Monitor Audio, but I've seen reference here to some good KEF sales and while I would prefer to give the speakers a listen, it's hard to pass up a great deal.
My questions are regarding the KEF iQ5s and iQ7s. First, what's the difference between the iQ5 and iQ50? It looks like just a small foot on the bottom of the iQ50 (to add stability?).
And how would speakers like these compare to the B&W 684 or Monitor RS6?
Thanks for all the great (if sometimes confounding) info you've been posting.
Front: B&W 685
Center: B&W HTM61
Surround: B&W M1
