ive been thinking about upgrading for quite some time now and the kef r500s caught my eye, i listen to alot of fast paced drum n bass , idm , indie so need tight control and authority in the bass department , till now i have been using kef iq7s with a nad t747 reciever (also used for HT) , i love the kefs signature sound stage and imaging but the bass gets flabby and un controlled which spoils the bass heavy genres i listen to. I use a pioneer cd player as a source. Earlier i was about to get the audiolab m dac for better bass definition but im on a budget , i can get either the M dac and kef q500 or the R500 only.
ill be sitting approximately 14 feet away in a room 20 by 18, which is carpeted
any suggestions as to which option would give better bass definition and control?
thanks a bunch!
