Have you heard the X300As (I haven't, genuine question)? What amp and speakers and USB DAC can you suggest that better them for £600? Thanks.
what LHC said.
Its a little disappointing kef don't give more connections. But maybe it would start taking some sales from their other products. Good on them for offering another option though.
TV room : Samsung 60" plasma-ATV3, -AVI ADM40,/Sonos ZP90,, Sky using Sonos for On Demand, PS3
HiFi : Sonos ZP90 - AVI ADM9 RSS + AVI SUB
Bedrooms : 2 x Sonos Play 3
IPad Mini for Sonos & Spotify / AKG K551
Also, are they too expensive.?
Drivers and other components can be pricey depending on spec.
I'd be sold on them if they had an optical connection, but I agree with Chebby, most people I know don't have a hifi and listen to almost all their music from their PC with some desktop speakers. It's how they watch a lot of their movies and TV shows too, so I'm probably the niche audience in wanting optical and other connection options.
Observe the signature in its natural habitat.
You are much more likely to find HDMI on a new laptop than optical. That's why I was delighted to find the B&W A7 offering optical + mini jack + USB + AirPlay and ethernet and built-in DAC + DSP settings. It is one of the only one-box systems (and the only true active one i think) that would have all the connectivity I need. I am still considering it as a possible option. (Though I don't want to lose the choice of CD and FM because they still work even if the internet went down and I like to have those fall-back options.)

I think it's a double bass.
I'll get my coat.
