    Hi,
    I have moved to a smaller house and only have a much smaller living room and can't accomodate my current full size Tannoy speakers.
    Those minipods look excellent and maybe just what I need, but What do they sound like when playing music ? I imagine they do a good job with movies.
    I listened to the KEF 2005.2 but I found the eggs disappointing with music but excellent with movies.
    I am going to try demo KEF 5005 anyone heard them yet ?
    MY current amp is a Yamaha 640SE and planning a new TV and DVD player.

    Cheers
    Briggsy

    Hi,
    Never noticed them on Friends. I'll keep an eye out now.
    I've got a 5.1 demo with them on Saturday. Any sub recommendations ?

    Thanks

    Hi,
    Just heard the KEF 5005's and thought id let you know and anybody who is thinking of buying them and runs a search. Movies sounded really sharp and detailed. I could here the breath of the actors and good tight rumble bass during explosions.
    Music was a huge improvement on 2005.2's especially the middle bass which the eggs really lacked. Although in fairness to the eggs the 5K's do have an extra bass driver.
    For a small speaker set I'm impressed and worth the extra C notes over the eggs.
    Anybody else like 'em ?
