I would look at the smaller PSB speakers.
Also, $1500 may not seem like much but it buys
you are pair of PSB T6s. with money left over.
On top of that, if you want small, I think the PSB Alpha B1s
with a little EQ(and there is plenty of money left for EQ)
are probably better speakers. Only a guess but...
The trouble with this situation is the usual--
no one much is actually comparing across price
ranges so there is not much chance to find out
what is really what.
KEF is a careful conscientious company. But the
LS50 is a strangely measuring product. I think
I would find it hard to take without pulling down the
1-2 kHz range. The PSB ALphas can be tweaked with
EQ to sound almost exactly correct but they sound reasonable
without any such tweaking. The LS50 looks pretty odd here
If there measurements are taken at face value, it is a little screamer
to borrow a phrase once popular at TAS.
I would think three times.
PS I cannot explain how people can find the sound indicated in
fiture 6 tolerable--either one of them. Not for me. Never has been,
never will be. .
