    Impressions of KEF LS50?

    I have some and to my ears they are fantastic for their size and price, they do need some power behind them and room to breathe, good sand filled stands a must.

    What's yer bits'n'bobs ?

    Nice set up, I used to have the 305's and wish I'd kept them.......

    Integrated up to £300 s/h for Monitor Audio Bronze B2

    Nad C320bee is a brilliant amp and an absolute steal 2nd hand, matches up v well with Monitor Audio as does Arcam A85 and FMJ A19

    Stand-mount suggestions please - up to £600ish

    Kef LS50 2nd hand are amazing value and an absolute no brainer, they need a bit of room to breathe mind... Monitor Audio and Dali make v nice cheap standmount speakers if you want brand new.

    My First Streaming experience.

    I found a Node 2i 2nd hand for 350 a few weeks ago!! Totally agree on the Spotify v Tidal thing - Tidal is absolutely streets ahead in SQ and well worth the extra outlay

    Well, funny you should say that I tried a pair of Tung Sol 12AX7's behind and...no sound. I'm assuming a different type is required and the manual is no help, not a lot on line either........

    I have put a tung sol 12AX7 in the window seat and it made a difference to the top end definitely - I have Gold Lions in my Phono pre and agree they are something special quite an upgrade. I have tone controls in all my set ups, heresy to some people but indispensable to me. My Vincent is the 1st amp I've ever bought that I've considered a keeper.

    That was the aim aesthetics and sound equally plus bang for buck (all 2nd hand apart from the schiit kit which is buttons anyway). Very minimalistic and sounds ab fab, quite stunning in fact. On the other hand my music room set up is another kettle of fish entirely - I will post pics of that shortly Thanks for your kind words newie!!

    Thanks a lot - even my Wife hasn't complained about this set up so aesthetics must be spot on. I will be addressing the trunking issue now you mention it, you are right probably won't make a jot of difference but why leave things to chance eh

    What's yer bits'n'bobs ?

    Thanks v much - with it being a living room system aesthetics are extremely important (hence the fact that a lot of it is hidden) Fortunately it sounds bloody marvellous too!

    A real coincidence i just got my C320BEE out of storage this morning to replace my main amp which has developed a fault....Been really enjoying the distinctive sound all day!!! RIP Mr BEE
