I have an Onkyo Receiver (TX-NR636) and looking for a pair of speakers.
I'm thinking of getting a pair of the LS50's based purely on what I read.
Want them mainly for music and occasionally movies. The idea is to start with a 2.0 setup and at a later stage get a subwoofer as well.
I recently upgraded my speakers to KEF L50s and hear way more detail than I've ever heard before, plus the soundstage is considerably large than what I've previously tried (Paradigm Reference Studio 60s, DefTech, JBL 530s).
I'm now wondering if there'd be big advantage upgrading my amp and/or...
Looking for ideas as to what would be an improvement over my mirage omni60 bookshelf speakers. I am trying out a pair of focal chorus 806v speakers from music direct. So far there not really much of an improvement, a little bit, but not much, maybe because there new yet, they need some time to...
Over the last six months, I've sold all of my home theatre equipment. I decided that I'd purchase a stereo system at a price of no more than $3500.00. I purchased an Oppo BDP-103, a Peachtree Decco65, a pair of KEF LS50 speakers with stands and a pair of AKG headphones. I already have a WDTV...
I'm upgrading from some KEF XQ10's, I need something that hits a bit harder for the living room.
Unfortunately, I can't get a listen to ANY of these until I buy them. That said, if I don't like them, I can return them, no questions asked.
Obviously, this is not the optimal way to buy...
thoughts and reviews please.
i really like the CM9's, and would say to compare it to the R700.
i have DEMOED all the CM series and they are very tight and crisp sounding speaker. i have not heard any KEF speakers but the look very well built and from what i hear they are VERY nice sounding...
I posted this originally to the B&W thread but as my options are now wider I decided to start a new thread.
I just started saving money for new speakers. Here is my current setup:
Wharfedale 10.2 (x2)
I listen to...
I used to own Monitor audio gs20, when living in Europe in a big house.
Recently, we moved to Hong Kong in a very small flat.
I'm therefore looking at much smaller speakers, that will stand in a small cabinet, but would sound good nevertheless.
I listened to Kef LS50, but am...
Can you recommend me a sub ~$500 integrated amplifier to drive a pair of KEF LS50s? A power amp with xlr inputs would interest me too, since I already have a Schiit Mjolnir, which may be used as a pre-amp.
Unfortunately my budget is limited because most of it is going to the...
My left Paradigm S1 just started having issues. The bass/mid driver is buzzing. Unfortunately, it can't be replaced by itself because it is part of the outer enclosure.
So I am on the hunt for a quality monitor for a nearfield setup. Budget ~$1,500.
The only speaker at the moment I can...
Has anyone heard both? Opinions?
I am making a purchase soon and can't make a decision. The December issue of Stereophile naming the LS50 the product of the year is making me lean that way.
Also, Ascend has the Sierra-2 coming in the next few weeks. Decisions decisions......
So.... Here's a general question related to 5.1 surround sound setup.
How important is it, in terms of overall sound-quality, to go with 2 towers as your front channels, vs 2 bookshelf speakers? Traditionally, a system has 2 towers, a center channel, and 2 bookshelfs as surrounds, plus a...
I'm having bad luck trying to find speakers that gave me the wow factor of my old man's Philips MFB RH 541's. Those things seemed to produce sound effortlessly and sounded great with vinyl and cds and all types of music
I've recently had dynaudio bm5a mkii's on my desktop for my pc and now...
Hey all, just got a pair of KEF LS 50' for a 2 channel rig hooked up to the 651A via USB from a laptop and iTunes running mostly apple lossless, sounds way better than any CD, or multi platform player I have tried, although I have never experienced a $1500 and up player.Simply incredible sound...
I am thinking of transforming a small room 12 x 11 x 9 into a mini theater for two :)
I already have the following
- Integra DHC-80.3 Pre/Pro
- Integra DTA 70.1 Amplifier
But I was wondering what type of speakers I should buy?
- 7 KEF LS50
- 6 MMG...
Looking for bookshelf speakers to fill a rather large room, they will stand on TV stand on both sides of TV, overall room size is 26x11
I like warm sound, nothing too harsh, and I'm 99% movie and 1% music
They will be accompanied by Rythmik LV12R sub.
Below is my floor plan, so lots of...
I had a chance to spend several hours today listening to KEF speakers including the Reference 201/2 and R300 and R500. I also listened to the Blade which was very impressive, but out of my price range.
I was contemplating purchasing B&W 805D, but someone on this forum suggested KEF 201/2. I...
