I’m just not sure Roksan and KEF R Series is a good match. That was my underlying point anyway...Blacksabbath25 said:Now I am confused as the reply numbers are wrong anyway David I think they where Kef R500s

It does sound similar, in voicing, if that's the right word. But it's is that touch more powerful, and has more powerful, tuneful and deeper bass. It also has a touch more clarity which makes it a great amp in the £1000 range.drummerman said:Does the K3 sound similar?
Not heard them so can't comment without a pinch of salt, but I agree that the PMC speakers can handle much better amplification. However, I bet they would improve the sound from much cheaper speakers. When I auditioned the ATC scm19 it was with a sub £1000 amplifier, and the sound they produced was superb, and bettered the Kef ls50w. It was clear the speakers could handle amps in the tens of thousands of pounds, but they Def improved the entire sound of a moderately priced system. And then maybe in the future, even 5 years time, you'd have decent enough speakers to warrant an amp upgrade if you wanted. If you had no intention of upgrading the amp in the future, then maybe the speakers are overkill and something in the sub £2000 price point would be better. However, I'm having a demo soon and will know a lot more on this subject.QuestForThe13thNote said:If buying the 20-24 you will need much better amplification. Fanthorpes will say the same thing. I’d say you’d probably be wasting your money on that if not planning to change the k3 at some stage.

Is that one of your legendary deals for the two (speakers and amp)? If so....dealMUSICRAFT said:Hi radiorogradiorog said:When I auditioned the ATC scm19 it was with a sub £1000 amplifier, and the sound they produced was superb, It was clear the speakers could handle amps in the tens of thousands of pounds,
Really don’t even need to spend that much as we’ve recently used curved SCM19 passive monitors powered with ATI’s new AT542NC power amplifier @ £2799. Proper. A sublime match *smile*
All the best
