Two bass units within these 'reflex transmission line' loudspeakers further enhance bass performance, contributing to increased sensitivity and additional power handling.
The TDL RTL 3 is the perfect partner for a larger room. Retaining the fine stereo imaging of their smaller counterparts, room position is not critical, neither are they difficult to drive.
Indeed, they possess the ability to portray accurately the original performance at realistic sound levels, especially when coupled with powerful amplification.

Kenwoods are by nature very bottom heavy... ok for metal, ok for dance.. but anything else.. nah.. they just dont have the class or clarityHi guys. I have the option of these two amps as it's in my budget at the moment which is a KENWOOD KAF1030 (40wpc)
Or a vintage KENWOOD A-65 (55wpc)
I cant find much as reviews on them goes.. do you know much about them? And how they sound with these speakers? Any help on then is appreciated
Amen to that one.. I find the biggest test of the speaker and amp and its quality though is that insane James Blake song... Limit to your love!!!! My dynaudios with my roksan can handle it right up to half power then it overwhelms them!!!One of my beefs - you need lots of bass for metal!
I listen to A LOT of metal and of different types (and impose it on readers of the “what you listening to...” thread), and my conclusion is you need bass that goes fairly deep, is NOT hugely loud but has to be able to produce bass notes that stop and start very quickly. The only way of doing this is having lots of power reserves which equals a big transformer and lots of capacitors. This is why I like Rotel for this type of music, clean power with decent power supplies. Nad has the reserves but tends to haven a slightly slower bass which is also slightly boosted which is not as good for this type of music. The Cambridge will be more like Rotel imo.
Not all Watts are equal when it comes the the power amp!
Just play a bit of Gojira and see if you can differentiate between the kick bass drums of Mario Duplantier and the bass guitar of Jean-Michel Labadie! If you can you should be sorted for metal.
Okay thank I was just looking for 640A most was too far for me to travel to collect but I have found the 340ASatan's guitar.... the graphic equaliser.. you'll find the majority of people here will all say the same thing.. the amp should be run flat or in direct mode.. no graphic or bass / treble control and have the tone set by the speakers and amp / source voicing
Have a look on ebay ... you'll find the Cambridge Audio azur 640A for around £60 (this is a darn fine amp), or a 340A (40w amp), the A5 ... all for around the 60 - 70 quid mark!
Just make sure the amp is in good condition.. has all its connectors and speaker terminals.. there are a good few that have some missing ..especially speaker terminalsOkay thank I was just looking for 640A most was too far for me to travel to collect but I have found the 340A
That's only up the road from me il give him a message see if he can go lower on itThis is in Talley, worth a £70-75 offer collected quoting those on eBay cheaper.
From memory the 3xxseries where the budget end, 6xx their mid range so would hold out for a 640 if you can.
The person who had the speakers before me was using then with an arcam alpha 8 and sounded brilliant but was too far out of my price range..Here is something a bit left field
Arcam AVR250, 100w into two channels and Arcam or some of the most musical avr’s around. These are dirt cheap as they have no hdmi but do have a good built in dac if you want to stream etc. You can also properly integrate your sub and these were £1500 new. You may also be able to bi amp the TDLs as well. This could work very well I think.
£70 from Ascot.

Americans tend to prefer quantity over quality. Given the opportunity, we build McMansions. We drive Hummers. We wash down our Whoppers with Big Gulps. And we always buy the biggest AV receiver we can, because you can't be too rich, too thin, or have too many watts. More is better. Meanwhile...www.soundandvision.com
