I've had both and the KEFs are better in everyway as far as I'm concerned. The 85's are bright and have zero depth and they have bass that is tight but very much like a one note sub. The kefs are smooth and natural with depth and some of the nicest bass I've had in my room. It's so defined and each ...

Another conspiracy theory post!!!!I I also know Simon and he's outstanding to deal with. I bought a luxman l501s from him and he went so far as to send it to me cod. Since then I've become friends with him and we communicate almost daily. Simon avoids cam because they want him to pay dealer fees whe...

Shame when this happens. A serious buyer doesn't want a piece where he can't even trace the history (it's changed hands so much). And when the "renters" will flip for the same money they purchased it for it just lacks class. You sure have alot to say for a guy who has alot of zeros beside...

Najib and James hit the nail on the head. I have always wanted to try Harbeths and there just okay speakers. You can spend that kinda money and have far better results. The Harbeths were smooth, had more then enough bass and disappeared really well for a speaker that shape. However they're predictab...

I think a bigger problem is the highballers ( new word?). Sellers that ask for prices on used items that most of us can get from a retailer with a little negotiating. The funny thing is the majority of these ridiculous prices come from two provinces.

I had these speakers and they really need to be out from the wall. The 6.2 more then any speaker I have had really needed that. For one, they have serious bass impact and against the wall they will over fill the room in a bad way. Secondly a huge part of there ability is there imaging and that large...

Mangepan 20.7

I've only heard up to the 3.7 but they were powered by an all McIntosh frontend with there monoblocks and I honestly couldn't picture sound being better. I believe they will fly you out to Minnesota (not sure the ins and outs) to do a serious audition.

Like James I too have owned the exposure 3010s2 and it was really really good. It was able to add front to back depth and a 3d sound stage to the gear I was using at the time. However if I were you I would move up the Linn ladder and upgrade your amp to an lk140. Then if your still not satisfied cha...

Ouch, that's uncalled for and I thought we aren't directly pointing fingers??? I certainly wasn't and didn't even have so much of a single user in my site's......Sorry if I somehow hit a nerve???

Nordicnorm, your the perfect example of the opposite years to posts ratio ;)

All this talk about low ball offers and not responding kinda bugs me for two reasons. One, each email from a buyer as low and ridiculous should be met with a polite response! PERIOD!!! Secondly I've sold a fair amount of stuff on Canuck and I have rarely received low ball offers. The 2 or 3 I've rec...

Firstly, I love Canuck audio mart and have been here for 13 years. However this post is far too polite!!!! I have had multiple conversations with members over the last couple weeks and Kijiji has more serious buyers now and it pains me to state this....... I've had countless offers on things im sell...

I have tinnitus as well, its been a few years now so I'm pretty used to it but night time is hard because there is so little background noise. When I first started experiencing it I actually thought my system had some kinda noise and it was driving me mad. I would constantly ask my wife if she could...
