For those interested, here is a good review of the R900s:
"Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and beginning all over again." André Gide
Thanks for the link, Cno. It is a very good write-up and even allowing for the odd translational quirk it is compelling and in a style not so often seen in the UK.
I was amused at one comment in view of a recent thread here:- "Even height perspective is clear on the right recordings."
On a detail point, the terminal block seems a good idea with its bi-wiring option and link replacement.
Interesting perspective on advances in speaker design in computer age and with Chinese assembly - very plausible but equally so many older designs still sound good so I am unsure what he 'real truth' is here.

good accurate audio monitoring and good sound reproduction to all
It's good to know that it holds some interest.
very good speakers for a bigger room. As for the BW 804 D you need a front- wall distance of at least 75 cm for best performance.
1) living room: Naim SuperUniti, Neat Elite SX, Sonos bridge 2) office: Dynaudio 110 A, Sonos ZP 90, NuForce HDP Dac, Ripnas Z 1000 3) kitchen: Sonos S 5
Thanks Cno. I have read the review before in the German magazine with google translator but this version is a lot easier to understand!
Kef R series seems definetly cracked the code and the pricing also seems spot on! I wish I have that kind of space.
