    Hmm... I was planning on getting Dali Oberons, but with these so cheap... anyone know how these might compare? They do look good. :)

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    While I've never heard the Dali's for myself, I get the impression that they wouldn't require a sub for the low notes whereas the KEF speakers may need a little help in that area. If you order them from Crutchfield, you have 60 days to audition them and if you don't like them, return shipping is only $10.

    With the saved money, I'd have plenty left over for a sub, and I already have one I can use in the meantime... I'll have to think a bit.
    Thanks for sharing this!
