OMG what a great improvement in the sound stage. Glad KEF makes these small gems for Dolby Atmos. SJ
I have the R50's in my modest 5.1.2 system and am really impressed with just how well they work. I'm sure my low ceiling and seating position both play a role in their effectiveness, but very happy just the same.
Those R3's are incredible for the money, as are all of the new R series. Bet they give your Reference a run for the money, but you tell us!
