tempted by the LS 50's

It seems KEF put their brand name on the line with this one, being a 50th anniversary model and all. Lots of them on the used market.

I am a big fan of relatively nearfield listening because I am a relatively low-volume listener. I am gonna be in audio heaven when my LSR's arrive, and the added bonus? My BAT VK-500 amp is being repaired for free as we speak :)

I have a great uncle who is a retired electrician and repairman. He looked at the BAT and asked why I wasn't using it, I said a channel went on it and I am not in the mood to ship it to DE. He pointed his pocket flashlight over the circuit board, pulled up a chair and looked inside. "This won't take more than a couple hours, if I have the parts."

Sometimes, you get very lucky. Not only are LSR's coming in a few weeks, but I am gonna get my source-to-amp balanced system back up and running.

I've been using -- shock! -- a 25 year old Audiolab 8000a. I'm easy to please, and for what I do (I do not play my Bruckner at first-row volume levels!) I can vouch, it has its charms.

Those ls50's would sure sound neat with my trusty Audiolab I bet....
