Has anyone else noticed that the C series speakers have quietly disappeared from KEF USA's website, KEF Direct and even the KEF UK website? is down to just a few C3 bookshelf speakers.

I'm really getting anxious to see what they bring out when the sell-off of the Q series underway now is complete. Will it be a product line that slots in between those two, or will it be something that hits a little higher than the Q series yet below R series? If they did that they could perhaps introduce a better entry level to replace the C series. Those C series speakers never really did much to excite anyone.

KEF R500, R200C, R100, SVS SB2000 sub, NAD T758 receiver, Pro-Ject RPM1 TT w/ Sumiko Pearl, Bluesound Vault2, Sony BDP-S480 BlueRay player, Samsung UN55JU6500F 4K LED TV, KEF M500 headphones, Sony CDP-CE500 CD changer.

I have an onkyo HTIB since 2010. I dug out some old Mission speakers from the basement, I believe they are 770 series circa 1999.

I want to upgrade. TV 70%, Movie 15%, Music 15%. No gaming.
Thinking hard on Q300 LR and Q200C.
Will wait on surrounds, use existing speakers to fill the gap.
Looking to upgrade receiver and sub very soon--probably denon and usual suspects recommended here--SVS, Hsu, Rythmik, Outlaw.

Room is fairly big, 25x22 vaulted ceiling ~14ft. Open on one side to hallway and stairs partially open in back to kitchen and dining room.
Picture attached-- yes I do not like the TV above the fireplace, unfortunate but no choice. Will clean up wires, open underneath and have access behind TV.

Definitely not audiophile.
Been looking hard at the Ascend but right now I am leaning to KEF.
Do you think Q300 and Q200C would be a good choice?
Budget wise that is about where I would like to be. Could reach a little further but as a non audiophile I don't think it would be money well spent.

I know some people commented they like the Q100 better but I think with size of room I would be better with slightly larger Q300. Some people say Q600c matches better with Q300, but 600 center is too big. As it is I have to raise the TV slightly to fit the Q200c--which I can do. Would the Q300 and Q200c be a good match?

I am planning to put speakers on cabinet, I know not best but I can pull them forward and have wide separation. Seating about 14ft from TV.

We listen at pretty low volumes, not bass heads and don't need much room rattle when choose sub.

(sorry long winded post)
