Dear Kef 101, I've been critical of your rising value on the used market and of your constant comparison to your kin the LS3/5a ( Rogers, Spendor etc) in the past. Not because I didn't believe you sounded great. Lets face it, Kef has a history of producing some legendary speakers. Perhaps I was jaded by the increasing prices or the mixed bag of commentary floating around, saying that you're only a kin to the highly collectable BBC models due to the drivers you share in common, or that you somehow lacked in one area or another. "Too flat" not enough of this, cabinet that.. blah blah blah... I should know enough to not allow that chatter to affect my otherwise open viewpoint on sound being a personal choice that no amount of opinion can or should affect. So just like my open apology to the Cambridge Soundworks Ambiance OAK, you too are deserving of one. In some way I've followed my values by plunking down some hard earned cash to acquire you. Sure , your cabinets are a little rough but if I wanted Perfection I'd be buying something NEW in the box right? Your minor scars add character and any of the deeper scrapes can and will be mended. While my initial intent was to buy you just to experience your sound first hand. I'm now looking for a place for you to stay in my "I've got way too many speakers and not enough rooms" family. Keffie! you've re-aligned my perspective yet again and I'm grateful for it. Your system mates, for now, will be the Parasound Zseries, and fear not, each one of you , LEFT and RIGHT will get to keep your own stereo amplifier (In bridged mono), and if we ever come across another Musical Fidelity X-a50, we'll give you a go on that set up. - To my new friends, Welcome to my dysfunctional Audio family, I'm sure you'll fit right in. J - Aka Bostown!
