Hello Everyone Scenario - I had thought of purchasing Bose AM 16 alongwith Onkyo TX-SR602. But after getting not so encouraging responses after posting my queries on the present forum, i changed my opinion and have now set my eyes on KEF's KHT 2005.2 along with Denon AVR-2105 7.1 Channel Receiver. I am planning to use QED interconnects. All this is going to cost me a tad less than my earlier choice. From what I have heard, KEF is a decent brand and it fits my limited budget. I am planning to expand on to 7.1 later on when i have some cash. Queries - 1. What is the material used in the construction of the speakers (tweeters & mid-range cone) and the subwoofer (PSW 2010) cone which comes with KHT 2005.2? Also, how is the quality of KEF subs.? 2. The sub does not have any port (closed type). does the absence of a port compromise the quality? from what i know, the earlier model KEF KHT 2005.1 used a sub with port but the newer model KHT 2005.2 uses a sub without a port. why is this so and does it improve the quality? 3. Also if you can suggest any other sub-sat system which can surpass the KEF-Denon setup i am going for in quality and is also in the same price range? 4.Finally, is there any better receiver than the Denon AVR 2105 in the same price range? Please give names and also please write in what ways is/are they better. i will be highly appreciative of your help.
