Note: I live in a townhouse, so I can’t go huge on bass. Was leaning toward a pair of SVS SB2000/3000. Or spring for a Rel S3/5. I’d love to get it all, but will have to be in stages.
Also, I have a friend who is giving me an employee discount, and he’s leaving his job soon, so I’m just trying to figure out which route to go and save some cash first.
If you're getting a good deal and you've already heard and liked the Kef's, I think you should go for it. Get the subs later. Alternatively, you can get the front 3 (R3'S & R2C) and get one SB-300 sub now. You can get some Q150's for surround and 2nd SB-300 sub later.
