Cno,

thank you for the links, I've read both the reviews and it has confused me even more. I have a gut feeling that the r500s would be enough but I just don't want to wonder what could have been....

....and you are right to think like this.

My comments are purely to help your thought process, rather than direct it to a particular outcome.

A home demo will sort this out.

I know you are trying to help me out and I really appreciate it Smile I think I'll have to see how they both sound or atleast pray my dealer is unbiased. The problem in Bangladesh with dealers is that due to the tiny quantity they sell, they usually don't stock a huge selection speakers. You just order them blind and pray they work out well. Let's see what can be worked out.

Hi 

 

The R500 will be more easier speakers to control , I should't buy the R900 unless you have a very big space for them to hear or very

powerfull amp or monobloks . By the way Did you receive the Cayin H80 ?
