You know i read lots of things before i make decisions, but opinions from wise people, people with experience are very important to me.
Everything i read here i try to take something positive, and helps me alot on my decisions.
I've went trough very brands, but i am decided to make a more "refined" space, if you know what i mean. I've considered Klipsch THX Ultra2, B&K, and all of those sets are amazing, no doubts about it, but...amazing for the cost.
Kef Reference or B&W 800 Series are another dimension, and those working with a good Processor and proper power will provide me a stunning experience, i will reach the "Nirvana" sound for sure.
As for Amps, if what some say it's true, that all amps sound the same, it has to do with power, i would prefer to save some dollars, and instead of investing in the RA7300 from Datasat, buy Emotivas, or ATI.
If there are differences, and to be honnest, i think there may be some diferences, i jump directly to Datasat.
My main doubt here are the Speakers..never heard Kef Reference. I know that they're lower series are nothing special, at least they weren't 4 years ago. 4 yesars ago i've bought some Monitor Audio RX Silver set over Kef because Kef wasn't that great. Later i've sold the Monitor Audio and changed to Klipsch.
Now when we talk about their Reference set, it's another story.
