I have a new Stratos Kismet amplifier. Love it! I have a Hegel p20 preamplifier and I’m doing CD’s and streaming Tidal through an Auralic Altair G1.
I’ve been thinking about two speakers to replace my present speakers. Presently, the only way to demo is to buy a fully refundable test drive. So, I’d like some views of mating my electronics to the following before I get too committed.
Do I have enough juice for the KEFs? Matching my stuff to either of these speakers, should I be listening for or expecting certain weaknesses? I’m a novice, getting back into 2-channel after a 40 year enjoyment of previous equipment.
I can really tell a difference in sound since buying what I now have. I now hope for some speakers that will dazzle me. I mostly listen to classical, jazz, opera , blues, and older rock.
I’m interested in the Kanta No.2.
I’m also very interested in the KEF Reference 1 and a rel subwoofer.
Size of room…about 350 sq ft and 10’ ceilings.
Looking for helpful guidance.
