Well support is a big issue. Companies like KEF have next day service in my area. Purchasing from internet direct companies would mean a ton on shipping (this particular home is outside USA) and would take forever for support.
I am looking for a 5.1 system with a budget of around $10k for just the speakers. I am trying to decide between Wharfdale Jade 7 ( and the accompanying center and surround speakers) and KEF R700 ( and supporting speakers from the same series). Where I live both of these have good support and service ( support for companies like PSB is non existent). The room is 15 ft by 21 ft. Height is 10 ft. I have also looked at Signature S8 but it seems to be more suitable for just...
The room size is 15 ft by 21 ft. I feel like R900 as the center speaker will be an overkill but it is recommended that LRC should be the same speakers if possible. Maybe I could use R600c and place them vertically? The sensitivity being 90 db I was considering using Denon 3313 with 125w (AirPlay is an absolute must). Is that enough power? I don't mind using another AV as long as it has AirPlay.
I am using KEF R900 pair as the front left and right speaker in a 5.1 setup. I am considering using a single KEF R900 as the center speaker (for a weave AT screen) instead of R600C. Is this a good idea? The sub is a velodyne DD plus 12. The surround speakers are R800DS (dipole).
