Is the difference worth £1000?.

    Hi
    I have a sony dav800 all in one at the moment which has served me well for the past 3 years but now the upgrade bug has struck. I am thinking of get the pioneer 812 amp and the Kef 2005.2 speaker package. I know I will notice some difference but any feedback would be great as to how much.

    Thank you

    I think the difference should be substantial. You are replacing what is basically a lifestyle (emphasis on style) system for proper hifi separates. General consensus is that separates beat all-in-ones (unless you go for high end all-in-ones)

    Have you had a demo yet? I would listen to your suggested combination plus a few others. If space is at a premium the Eggs seem to offer good bank per buck. If you can accomodate larger speakers I would suggest auditioning some full size speakers as an alternative. Acoustic Energy (See website), for example, do excellent complete sets of speakers for around the same price as the Eggs. I found they sound fuller and had more depth to them than the Kefs.

    Great with music and movies.
