LS 50 Meta open baffle like sound

Hello guys,

I went through this review for fun today - Audiophiliac Radically improved KEF LS50 Meta Speaker -
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKTYvP7YQ0Q&ab_channel=SteveGuttenbergAudiophiliac

Steve G claims that they have the same sound than OB Speakers, I know he sells a lot of kefs, but do you think that can compete with GR speakers like Otica MTM or studio Monitor ?

Thanks

C'mon, Danny, you're being too hard on those guys. This is top of the line...

Ouch, That ain't pretty

Danny

When do you create an Upgrade Kit for this one ?
GR LS 50 Meta Virtual OB Line, sounds like a large audience.

Probably not until someone sends Danny the kit to evaluate and design a new crossover for. :P

Interested to see the new Meta crossover... I have LS50 with upgraded LF crossover (pimp my LS50) and have recently updated the HF crossover with mills resistors and duelund bypass caps.
Wondering how to even open up the Meta and curious if the upgraded LF crossover would be a good fit for the new Meta.
The bypass caps seem to have dulled the HF sound and reduced overall HF output, hoping its just a cap burn in issue....
