I was interested in the Kef 201/2, but my dealer didn't had them in store. They had a pair of 203/2 which I had the chance to audition with the Linn and the Audiolab 8200 system.
In the end, I decided I was happy with the Tannoy dc8. The amp on the Linn DSM probably doesn't do justice to the Kef, which means I would have to extend my budget on all other components, which I could not afford with the mortgage and all.
I started playing the lottery, so who knows one day...
Very nice....and I agree with you about the Linn amp driving the Refs (it would do for a while though!!).
I take it you saw the Home Cinema Centre's clearance offer on the 203s (£2750).....very tempting indeed!!

Oh, they're probably the pair I auditioned! What's not mentioned is there is a bad chip on the side of the speaker... It's not visible from the front, but this would bother me in the long term..

Oh Blatherskytes (as my old Granny used to say)!
I love your system! Top marks!!
