Excellent deal - got these in black after Xmas for £324 at Sevenoaks - thankfully, am happy to have payed the extra £24 for the black ;) - vibrant mid --> treble, altho bass and lows lack a little punch (but that's just my op!)

Best Paired with warm amps I would believe according to the What Hi Fi Review, so Yamaha and Denons.

What HiFi?!!!! - Ha! Ha! Ha!:p

Define warm please.

The opposite of warm must be cold so define cold too then.

The definition of Hi-Fi is faithful reproduction of the original source so all these "colourations" are to be avoided - unless Hi-Fi isn't the issue, which it won't be 'cos 80% of your senses are dominated by the visual in Home Cinema.

The sound in Home Cinema needs to be clear, loud and powerful so the amp and sub will make the most noticeable difference. If you can hear "warm" or "bright" sats when engrossed in a movie then you're the exception or work for What Hi-Fi!:-D

If anyone could find me the KEF 2005.3 with Kube 2 in black cheaper than £599 I'll be most grateful. This is a hot deal but I have set my heart on those but can't find them any cheaper

Amplifiers are different, Denon and Yamahas have a warm lively rich sound, emphasising Bass and mid tones, whereas Sony and Onkyo are bright, clinical emphasing treble.

These satellite speakers it is said (and I can only go on review because I do not own them, or for that matter have the intention personally to buy them) that they work best with an exciting amp.

Some believe that pairing speakers with the right amp helps, you obviously don't

Ermm...I think you will find that a new set of speakers for your PC already have an amplifier built into them, I think you will find there is somewhat a big difference in buying an amplifier or receiver and attaching these speakers to them than your generic amplified speakers that you plug into your pc.

I use Logitech 2.1 speakers with my pc, for home cinema I use proper speakers. You could of course buy a home cinema receiver and some speakers and feed your sound output from your soundcard of your PC through the whole lot should you want to.

I dont know if I would agree with the 80% of senses figure. The sound systems in most cinemas are worth about as much as the projectors they use so that shows how much importance they put on sound. In terms of human senses in general hearing is the primary emotional sense much more so than sight. I would argue that to really engage with a film the audio is as important as the visuals (with comfortable seating and pleasant company both at about 10%).

What HiFi is a waist of time though.

If you need to ask, then you are probably better off with the Logitechs. They are the cheap and cheerful solution, they don't need an amp or decoder like the kefs do, and they will deliver lots of high quality wham bam crash if all you are doing is playing games.

I actually had a set of Kefs and sold them to replace them with Logitechs. It might sound mad, but I only have an average-sized livingroom, and the Kef downfiring subwoofer is so big it needed to be used as a big silver coffee table. Her indoors absolutely hated it, and the signal and power cables that trailed to it. The speakers needed to be fixed to the walls because their odd shape allows them to fall over rather easily with the least knock.

I shelled out several hundred quid for a separate amp, which of course meant a separate remote, which involved extra faffing when I switched between sources.

After all that I never got the sound right for the room. There were just too many knobs and faders and frankly life's too short, I'd rather watch a movie than faff around with levels. (Ironically after I sold them I found dead-simple setup instructions on the Kef website. Duh.)

I sold the speakers for about £250 and the amp for about £150, I think, and bought the Logitech 5500 for less than £200. The subwoofer is big but it was still easy to hide under a coffee table in the corner - recently moved to inside a cupboard. Smaller, more discreet speakers, which don't look that much cheaper, and come with integrated wall/shelf stands, unlike the Kefs. Best of all, it was pretty much plug and play. Plug it in, volume up, volume down. plenty of detail and power for my purposes. Never looked back.

Until recently, that is, when I got a blu-ray setup. Now my all-in-one solution is falling short because the Logitech decoder can't cope with True HD - all I get is rather superior Dolby Stereo, which is nice but not quite the same as DTS. If I'd kept the Kefs I might have had more options... though it would have involved buying another amp this time with HDMI outputs.

But then if I'd kept the Kefs I'd be divorced by now, and living in a high rise flat with tattooed neighbours who'd bring the Staffies round if I turned the volume up beyond 2. :thumbsup:

hth.

You need a new wife! :-D
#23
So whats better divorce and the kefs or a nagging wife and the Z5500's?!

Seriously though I play 1080p DTS x264 Movies through my PC to my 40" lcd TV. What would you recommend? Or maybe another speaker set that has not been mentioned?

Would Richersounds pricematch these instore ?
#25
hot. cracking wife friendly set.
#26
The silver ones look crap like something from poundland! The black ones are a bit better but still a horrible shape. JMHO
#27
Richersounds will price match these in store. I was torn between these and the Boston Acoustics Soundware xs a few weeks ago when changing my speakers. I have to say that after a good amount of researching and instore listening I went with the Soundware stuff. I found them to produce a much clearer sound off my Denon 1910 amp. The Soundware are a similar price and to me are better value as they are also wife friendly.

I feel for you if you have to get rid of your Missions I really do. Conservatory Extension an option ? lol :-D
#33
Like I said got mine from ebay about 6 months ago from an approved dealer who had extra stock.
The only comments would be is the plastic wall brackets are a bit wobbly. The speakers are suberb and the subwoofer is powerfull as expected from KEF.
#34
Anyone know where i can get the stands for these for a reasonable price? Everywhere seems way overpriced, if i can find them at all!

There is the expensive option of ceiling speakers which look totally unobtrusive. Maybe?

Or hundreds/thousands on a computer? Or thousands on a TV? Or tens of thousands on a car? Or hundreds of thousands on a house?
#37
Ive been looking for a set of suround sound to fit to my PS3 and TV, are these likely to connect to the PS3?
I assume from reading other peoples comments that they are worth the money but you dont get stands and these have to be wall mounted ?
Any advice you can throw my way would be appreciated. I am on a budget but really want to get the neighbours back as they have theirs on pretty loud on a Saturday night lol

Utter cobblers!

Define "warm", "lively", "rich", "bright", "clinical" in non-subjective, audio terms. You can't 'cos these expressions are bogus and crap:p

Audio equipment(s) should reproduce the source material faithfully otherwise they are not doing their job. They are manipulating the sound. Such manipulation is contra Hi-Fidelity so paying loads more for non-fidelity is a paradox:p

Then according to yourself, if thats the case that all audio equipment should reproduce the source material faithfully then there should be no differences across the range of manufacturers of speakers or amplifiers, in the real world there is, they all process sound differently this is not cobblers.

Please tell me one system that doesn't? Yours? :roll:
