    Kef LS50 original (ex-demo) vs. LS50 Meta (new)

    I've found a local shop which sells both LS50's (Meta and original version), but with the original version in an ex-demo pair for half the price of the new LS50 Meta . The guys told me, despite the marketing buzz, the difference in sound quality is not that significant, and becomes more...
