Has anyone heard these speakers?
Are they like KEF R500/700/900 in the sense of UNI-Q idea?
Which amps are better match for these sepakers?
Yes, they are similar to the KEF's due to their coincident design. They will sound different though, as all manufacturers tend to.

Not anyone'ss cup of tea?
We're big fans of these Tannoys. They're entertaining in a way few rivals can match. As to what amp works best with them we've had good results with Rega's Brio-R, Cyrus's 6a/8a, Heed's Obelisk, Roksan's Caspian M2. Haven't tried them with Naim's Nait, but would expect it to work well. The choice depends on the flavour of sound you want.

Can you tell me how they are compared to KEF's R500, R700?
Will CREEK 5350 do with the TANNOYS'
I am a big fan as well. If you are looking at the R Series from KEF you would be wise to consider the Precision range - the next step up from the DC6t-se. The DC6Tse is fair competition for the R500 but for the R700's you would need to consider the Precisions. As always listening in a properly set up demonstration is key.

Am I wrong in syaing that the only difference between the R500 and R700 is the size of the bass speakers and nothing else?
Why do you say I must UPGRADE into the PRECISION range? Can you tell me, if possible, the difference/what you mean?
I have my Tannoy dc6t se hooked up on a yamaha micro system (mcr810e) and listening
mainly spotify through a squeezebox classic. No external dac and cheap diy market audio cables.
They work absolutely great! Voices are so realistic and bass lines so warm, deep and wel defined.
I really can't imagine how a more expensive system will give a more than subtle improvement on what
i've got right now. I never crank the volume to pain thresshold levels though...
