Here is a link to a small review and test of the KEF Q100. The measurements are excellent and consistant with other speakers of the Q series with a modest midrange bump.

The KEF Q series will give you great quality sound at any price but they sound their best with more hefty receivers that can drive low impedance speakers better. IMO the KEFs are in the same sound...

The problem is probably that there are people that will not even bother with speaker cables because they are using the decades old idea that as long as a wire has a certain close margin of...

Maybe because it's too, well, time-consuming to do that? I will admit most of the time I have for personal use purchased cables blindly without even listening to them but I can still compare them...

The one thing that makes the exotic cables sound better than the standard single conductor wires is much more simple than a lot of people think. It's the small dual pair and litz type designs....

Nice, but you can't tell that much from a vid. The only way to prove any differences one way or the other is to use expensive professional testing equipment in a real world listening setting. Not...

If they're going to be terminated than there's absolutely no reason to get anything thicker than 16 AWG. With bare wire connections you can lose strands if you remove them a couple of times so...

Try to get the rest of the PSB set as that would be an awesome matched setup. ;)

Hi. There are very few people that have experienced ATMOS in a home theater. So far I've been hearing mostly what sounds like advertisements from Dolby saying that it's superior to what we have now....

That is interesting. Maybe it's an indication of improved preamp and amp quality.

Did anyone happen to catch the S&V measurements for the NR838? That's unusual for a receiver and I'm wondering if...

That's why there are dipoles. Atmos is mostly marketing that won't provide any better surround than a properly configured basic home theater. A lot of people have 5.1/7.1 setups but don't experience...

The SR7007 is a high end receiver so I would give it a chance first. I've used higher end receivers like this for clients that have had low impedance speakers and they usually work out just fine....

The 35 watts per channel of the 2235 sounds a little low and the Polk is basically a 4 - 6 ohm speaker. How much of an investment are you willing to make? The Marantz MM7055 is around $1100.

The recommendation for the Denon X4000 is a good one. I would throw in the older 4311 as well. You can try a combination of these two receivers along with the Aon 2 as alternatives for the fronts...

Whichever is best for you is what counts. :) But you should really be using a more appropriate Mcintosh processor with XLR for the Mcintosh amplifier since price doesn't seem to be an issue here.

The KEF Q series are good quality. I used to have the older iQ70 and still have the iQ10 monitors, but not using them now. In my view they are neutral sounding with a lot of bass capability but the...

If only he used a better track for the demo. There was just too much deep BOING-TICITIC-BOING sound so you can't tell much about the midrange and trebble.

It's a fad. Myself, I'm waiting for true 100.10 surround as none of this 7.1 - 11 channel stuff is realistic enough. Until then it's just plain 5.1 for me. Even though I completely feel surrounded...
