    I have decided to get a set of KEF codas ( 2x90, 2x70, 1x80 @ £420 for the whole set) for a home cinema system. THey will be coupled with a £300-400 quid reciever.

    Has anyone ever used them? Can any one suggest a reason for me not getting them?

    Im using a Sony STR-DB790 to power my Kef Codas and the setup is superb. Although ive only had a videologic digitheatre beforehand to compare to, the difference was very noticeable and I feel the money was well spent. The £420 price tag on the package seems really good considering they retail separately closer to £700, and the Sony can be had for around £220.

    There seems to be a distinct lack of reviews for the Codas although for the 70s there is one at http://www.tnt-audio.com/casse/kefcoda70_e.html Also there is a Russian review at http://www.ixbt.com/dvd/kef-coda.shtml which can be translated online.

    If you can stretch your budget slightly, go for the Kef q series(the old range), I use to have the q55.2 fronts and q55 for rears, total cost a year ago for those four was £400, I only had the coda centre though.

    They sounded brilliant, but you will have to factor in a decent sub in the future as well, but that can come later.

    Some people still reckon they are better than the new series for sound, I do like the look of the new ones, I demoed them and preferred the sound of my Q55.2s to the new ones.

    In any case you want to demo them, that way you can see if you like the sound or not.
    Demo Demo is the only way to go with speakers, have a shortlist of a few ranges so you can compare for yourself, then you know you've made the right decision.

    There are lots of other choices in that price range.
    Good luck and enjoy whatever you get.

    coda 90s need alot of space to the sides because of their bass drivers or they easily sound boomy, with plenty of freespace they are good!

    There will be around 2 m of free space around the Codas plus the room is big. I might draw a little plan of it later on today so that you can see what I am talkng about.
