Would the Arcam Alpha 9 and 9P be powerful enough for the R500? (75w each amp)

Pete,

I'm sure your modded Arcams would be able to drive them with ease, especially as you're bi-amping. Do you have a local KEF dealer?

:cheers:

RE: Kef r500 or 700

Hi Matt

 

We have a SevenOaks in Exeter who stock KEF.

I think I'll give them a call and book a demo, take my ageing (modified) Arcam Alpha gear up with me and not say anything about the upgrades Wink

I'm very interested in the R500's but would also like to hear the LS50s just out of curiosity

RE: Kef r500 or 700

I use the r300's in a similar sized room and they are really good and I never feel that I want more bass, cyrus dac xp QX with x-powers in mono. Huge scale and great sound stage, but in the interst of balance I did not try the 500's as for me it was between the 100's and the 300's (the ls50 were not released at the time)

This might sound like a bit of a daft question, but are there any other differences in the r series other than extra bass weight and scale as you go up the range? Resolution, detail etc?
