Because i owned the LS50 till a few months ago and i now own the Concept 20.

I already liked the 2020i a lot (just like the LS50), but the Concept 20 is really something special imo. It is more detailed, more musical and more open than the LS50 and it has a protective grille Wink  All in my opinion of course. But most af all, everytime i listen to the Concept 20, a big smile appears on my face. Dance 4

Impressive stuff, given they are less than half the price...........enjoy.  :rockout:

They are placed on a cabinet, but i use Auralex propad monitor isolation tabs between the speakers and the cabinet. Works very well.

Do you think it is a problem if one speaker is positioned 4-5cm higher than the other? Will this ahve any noticable influence over the sound?

Suggestion to KEF

consider to release other version.

1. With better sensitivity

2. With other color. some people did not like the gold color.

3. with protection grill

and also consider version for bigger room

Just my 2c

Kef LS series? TBH, I don't think the driver colour matters so much once you have a grill and it may be down to the material itself rather than a cosmetic choice. I'm also assuming that bigger versions would be more sensitive (e.g. as in most series, e.g. Kef R100: 86db; R300/500: 88db; R700:89db; R900: 90db).
