No - DAVID!! is shouting. Fine, Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa--VID. Still CD, though.
Hi all, great thread.
Bit of a long shot, I have a second system in my study, and I use my old Jamo Concert 8s, which are a similar size to the KEF (I presume)
They are getting on a bit now, I still like them very much...but at the price the KEFs do seem very appealing. Can anyone tell me how much of an improvement (if any) there would be?
Obviously I can get a demo...I'm just wondering...

Sorry, never heard the Concert 8s.
No Problem, they're probably a bit before your time
Thanks anyway, I will talk to the guys I bought my R series stuff from.
I just think they get a hell of a lot of praise for that price so I will investigate, and thankyou for your very informative insights
(And hope I don't get told off for saying they seem very good at that price)
One more short question:
- how important are speaker cables for LS50, what price level is recomended, or, if possible, which brand?
How many metres will you need?
They were around (or should I say I was), but just never heard them
I used Chord Rumour in my own system with them, but have used Epic and Odyssey with them before in demos. Most of the Chord cables seem to suit well, but I would probably the less warm sounding ones like Sarsen, Rumour and Epic, unless you like that kind of thing, or need a little warmth to offset brighter electronics.
If you are considering Chord Rumour then Van Damme OFC maybe better, several ex Rumours users found that to be the case and its cheaper also, at around £5pm for 4mm.
Is that each speaker?
I see from your other post you have them 3.8m apart but you don't normally have the cables straight out from the speakers to the amp, they normally go down to the floor and then across and then up to the amp which adds at least 1m to the length.
