I am considering Kudos X3 as an upgrade over KEF Ls50 and 2 rel 5ti subs.
I am hoping to get rid of subs due to lack of space. However I would like to achieve improvement over the soundstage and overall tonal balance, i.e. LS50 have to much midrange in a combination with Naim.
My amp is XS3.
Has anybody have experience with
Kudos X3 and would be able to advise if this would be a good move ?

I love them and there is no need for any sub support.
I have tons of punch and slam when required and believe any more would start to get too much.
I can’t recommend this combination highly enough X3s are a real bargain.
9oclock on the volume dial is great boogie level.
Not that I’m biased but really.
Has anybody have any experiance on how X3 compare with LS50s? Another option to replace current set up would be Neat SX1. It’s difficult to demo both x3 and sx1 in Poland so I would need to buy the speakers before listening to them.
I’ve demoed PMC 25.23 and Spendor A4 and prefer the latter but these are crazy expensive nowadays…
The X3s are very deep and detailed with good weight and I have them.
It’s difficult to know what you want everyone is different.
Your first question was to get rid of subs and I don’t need any.
They’re a very different type of speaker.
It’s very interesting choice of X3 against LS50s. The phrase chalk and cheese springs to mind. I own a pair of LS50s powered by an Atom as my second system. Detailed but very listenable.
I will state right now I don’t like Kudos speakers. I find them way too bright for my taste. I auditioned them in my search for my main system speakers and realised they weren’t for me. I think you really ought to audition some against the KEFs, they are totally a different presentation.
