Just wanted to get the forums opinion on speakers i am looking to purchase. I have a Onkyo 708 receiver and was looking to get either:
KEF KHT 20053K wtih K1 sub or the KEF KHT 3005SE with K2 sub.
Does anyone have an opinion on these speakers and how will they pair with my receiver.
Also is the $300 price difference warrant going to the 3005SE.

Recently bought Kef KHT1005.2 speakers

I picked up some Kef KHT1005.2 speakers on clearance. Use them with my Denon AVR-790. I immediately saw a big improvement in clarity and volume over my old (Visions)Soundstage surround speakers(they were the smallest set, R/L speakers have 5 inch woofers, centre and surrounds have 4 inch woofers). This set of 1005 Kefs only has 3 inch woofers and the 2005s/3005s have 4 inch, and the sub is a 10 inch instead of my 8 inch one. My living room is 12x14 but these Kefs can fill it nicely and the sub doesn't pound on the floor under normal usage, so they are apt/condo suitable. What I like is they look nice, dont take up much room, and can handle a fair bit of power. They did sound like they were playing from a tunnel at first, but after they broke in a bit, that sound went away. I'm guessing the 2005/3005s could really deliver, and I almost wish I had checked them out before buying.
