Morning all and merry Friday!
Right, I'm buying my younger brother his first hifi setup as a Christmas gift. I've been offered either the KEF Q100's or Monitor Audio RS5's for an excellent price second hand (can only afford one). I've not had much experience with either so some help would be appreciated as this will be a surprise for him. He has a good size bedroom 12f x 15f easily and listens to a lot of rock music. I'd need to get an amp as well and the one's they're being sold with (Though at an extra cost but similar total for both) are a Rotel RA-01 with the KEF and a Cambridge Audio Azur 640a with the MA's and I can't help but think neither of these would do either speaker any justice, I've also heard Arcam go very well with MA. He oohs and aaahs at an old, cheap Logitech set so I should make him happy either way.
Any advice or input is greatly appreciated, thank you.
