Roksan Kandy MkIII - Speakers

Hi all,

I'd really like some advice on a set of speakers to go with my Roksan Kandy MkIII amplifier. I used to use it with some B&W 685s but found the presentation a little bright. I've since moved these to my home cinema system and am much happier with them there.

I have a couple of speakers on my shortlist at the moment, namely the KEF Q300, as well as the current best buys: Q Acoustics 2050i and the Tannoy DC6/DC6T. If anyone can suggest different speakers that I should put on my list I'd appreciate it.

RE: Roksan Kandy MkIII - Speakers

I would suggest you dem some speakers. The main reason is because the Kandy MKIII & LIII can sound a little boisterous with some speaker makes. Your short-list, BTW, looks good - you could also add Focal 714V and Quad into the mix.

Epos Epic 2

Airport Express (source), Artephonos Energa (tube-power-amp), Peitho 303 (open baffle speakers). Enjoy the music!

If it is too bright then the Kef LS50s are worth a hearing. Or how about the new AE 301s?


I think the Kef Q300 maybe a little bright also, from what I have read.

Listen to the music, not the hifi.

Agree with BigH. It you thought the 685's were bright I would avoid the Q300's.
