My current 2ch front L/R speakers are a pair of Tannoy Legacy Eatons, which I like more than love.
They do a great job of providing a tightly focused soundstage, but they don’t seem too good on the mid to lower ranges. Things often seem muddled.
My KEF KC62 sub doesn’t work at all well with the Tannoys, but did complement my previous ProAc D2R stand mounts much better.
Other than the obvious - another pair of D2Rs - what other speakers (standmounts preferably) are worth considering for use with the sub.
Well the obvious answer will be a KEF speaker like something from the Reference range. The Uni-Q driver should give you a point source you’re familiar with from the Tannoys.
FWIW, I have the same sub with Dali Opticon MK2 speakers (on-wall).
For something in a similar price range, it might be worth auditioning the new Kef R3 Metas. I own a pair of its predecessor and they go surprisingly low for stand mounts when fed enough power. I used to pair them with a Uniti Atom. When I upgraded to a Uniti Nova, the difference was staggering.
The nova feed them well ? Did you feel that you lacking power? How is low level listening , lik 55 db
I never felt the Nova was lacking power with the R3’s. For a while I also powered my Kef Reference 3’s (floorstanders) with the Nova and it did the job. I would maybe look elsewhere for low level listening, I remember that the Nova didn’t show off its magic until I brought the volume past a certain level. Just my experience though.
