How do the new R11 compared to the Ref 5

Hey everyone, I currently have the r900's and I was going to get the ref 5's this year. My friend who works at a local hifi shop mentioned I should consider the new r11's he also said they are very comparable to the ref 5's at a fraction of the cost.

Problem is I can not find the ref 5's to audition first.

Late seeing this, surprised KEF hadn't replied.

There is no way the new R11 would be better than a Reference 5. True that the new R11 gets closer than the R900, but it's still not in the same league at all.

If you have the budget, just order the Reference 5 and live without regret. Or, Blade 2.
