    Looking to have a dedicated room soon for just two Chanel room that’s around 10 x 12 so something I can sit right up against the wall .


    Kit so far
    Thorens 160 very highly modded
    Viva audio solista valve amp
    Shanling cdt 100 ( modded )
    Kef ref 3.2

    Would like to upgrade the kefs to some retro stand mounts that will look good and blend in with the theme but also out perform the kefs with the viva .


    What should I be looking at guys .

    Many thanks Ugg10

    Have been looking at the Pmc range and must admit the do look the part . Also been looking at the snell and lowther speakers but way out my depth on this . Love my kefs but have a feeling there going to be far to big for the room .

    Music matter in Birmingham are PMC dealer may be worth a call or visit. From what I can tell pmc have a particular sound that may or may not suit you kit and ears so definitely audition.

    A new Kef R series is about to be released, maybe the new R300 may be enough in a small room.

    5EAC60D1-0058-4351-80FC-4DF5F32A261E.jpeg B9A35625-7E75-4D7D-868A-1AF481FC3BEB.jpeg 5EAC60D1-0058-4351-80FC-4DF5F32A261E.jpeg Tbh I’m open to change . I will still be having Kef ref range in my av system in separate room .

    Been looking at the older stuff to be honest like the tannoys and older style Rogers speakers etc . would like to keep it in keeping with the rest of my items . Think these tannoys would look great with my thorens .

    For this room huge bass etc is not what I’m after like the kefs I own but I’d rather have as much detail in the 2 Chanel room as possible
