I am hearing from multiple sources, one a professional review, that the new Reference has some pretty strong but still neutral bass for their size. So I may have underestimated the 5s but time will...

Thinking more about this, I wonder if Kef is planning to release a Reference 7 as the 5 more matches the 205 in woofer displacement? They did come out later with the 2c more like my 202/2c so only...

I think the Blade would be a true upgrade from the 207/2s, not so much the new 5s. I think the 5s would be an upgrade from my 205/2s however. From what I have been told, room size is key for the...

The A21 is a slightly different design than the A31/51 to my understanding. For music I would recommend the A21 /A31 combo but for movies not sure it would matter assuming all speakers are crossed...

I know the A21 is a step above the A31/51 but that is the first I have heard a possible difference between the A31 and A51. What is that based on or where did you hear that?

I would also think beyond total headroom, if it stayed in class A most of the time with the A31 but had to jump to AB more of the time with A23, you would hear a difference. Just like you would...

I have heard the R700 but not the R500 or R300 but based on feedback from those I trust, I believe the R500s are the most neutral and accurate of the R series which is saying something. Also with the...

Yes, that is per channel. I knew the A21 idle power was quite a bit more than the A31 but certainly can't make sense of it.

I have posted this before but if Oppo would make a more dedicated music player by say working with JRiver they could kill. The Media control Ap is broke and not that great.

Leave it at 6 ohms as 4 ohm would just unnecessarily restrict output. They are not a true 4 ohm speaker (like my previous 103/4s were).
