Yeah I was originally comparing Kef to Klipsch as I like the way Klipsh look and they could go very well with my furniture, but then advice on here turns me off them as they are expensive for what they are in the UK.Id also spend a bit more on the amp for now. But , id go and demo kef etc first…make sure you feel happy before buying blind..has anyone near you got arendal 1961?
edit, Dali make some very fine speakers as well..i had them before the Arendals and would happily go back when i sell up.DALI they are forum sponsors and seem nice, worth giing Lee a shout @Yorkshire AV
If that was the purchase decision then going into a shop to try befor purchase would have been great as I would have contacted a shop that sells both and arranged a demo. The problem with Arendal I cant do that. They do seem to be VERY well thought of as a brand though. I havent seen anyone say anything less than positive about them yet.
What I find odd though is statistically they should be worse than Kef. Are the stats usually self publicised and some companies tell fibs?
