Hi. Always been happy with my set up. Cambridge Audio Azur 651A amp with the 651C CD player, Transcriptors turntable and Bowers and Wilkins XT4 speakers. Having now moved into a block of flats I am unable to let my speakers `rip´ as it were. Even though I love them, would I benefit by changing to the KEF LS150 meta?? Many thanks.
Hi! if you live/going to move into a block of flats and the walls are paper thin a speaker will create problems no matter what it is, stand mount, slim style floorstander it won't matter a jot.
If what you're asking are their speakers that play better lower volumes, then yes there are, and the meta's wouldn't be my first pick for that.
You want a speaker with a DB rating of around 89-95DB yes these can go loud with very little power but they also sound fuller far quicker at lower volumes. But because they have a high DB rating they have the side effect of less bass that the compromise but a plus in your case.
BUT it's not a magic pill! they will still be audible through walls and people below may still hear bass depending on how the sound travels through the building.
If it's really bad perhaps consider a headphone setup.
