Amp to drive Kef 3005's

Not sure this should be in the speakers section, but here goes...

I'm about to buy a 5.1 set-up. I'm hooked on the 3005's but need a decent amp to go with them. I am thinkin of the Denon 2807 but was told by one retailer that the Denon amps struggle with Kef speakers, anyone got any thoughts on this?

The Denon suits because:-
a) a powerful amp.
b) 2 HDMI inputs, future proof as my 42" PV500 only has 1 input.
3) iPOD compatibility is nice also (not sure if this is USB, anyone know?)

Thanks.

Very expensive - but I have the Arcam AVR350 - I find they go hand in hand. I mostly listen to music with this set up, but have caught myself out many a time when I watch a movie as the sound clarity and tones are incredibly realistic!! Not a straight connection for Ipod. I know the Denon 3407 I think it's called is but due to apparent HDMI problems I couldn't get hold of one and went for the Arcam instead - never looked back! Hope this helps.

I've just ordered some KEF 3005s and a Denon AVR-2307CI to partner with them. This is a new AMP/Receiver that's about to be realsed I believe and provides much of the abilities you mention, ipod dock, HDMI (with upconvesion I'm led to beileve)

I demoed the Kefs with a 2807, which I assume is the one you're talking about, and it was really good.

Hi Mars, where have you ordered the new 2307ci from?

I am awaiting the release of that amp am also want to pair it up with the 3005 kef's, so am looking for a dealer that can do supply both.

Cheers:thumbsup:
