Mark- Nice review on the KEFs.
They look pretty cool to me...
on a side note: If you wind up flying my HT-3s (DTW-LAX), when they are complete, please make sure they get here safely.
I don't know if this will have any influence on you, or anyone else that is considering placing an order for a pair of HT3s, but I just got this today, in an email from Jim: "So it looks like the woofers will be abailable by the end of the month. I can't tell you how anxious I am to have that issue behind us. With all the changes we have made lately, we should be able to crank out HT3's in a much shorter time than ever before."
I really like the fact that I was able to fully customize the veneer, and finish with Salk. Even though the wait time was extra long for me, I don't regret not settling for instant gratification.
I am curious to hear the KEFs, and I am going to miss your reviews. Best of luck with your decision, my friend. I am sure you will be a very happy man in the end, because you certainly put forth the effort, and time to let your ears decide.
