Depends on room size. They sound amazingly clean but they can’t play loud enough for a large room full of people.

I recently got rid of my LS50s (I know these are metas but I've tried both the difference isn't drastic) after ownership of almost 3 years running them using a mcintosh power amp. Although these speakers in general hit above their price bracket, they definitely have unique sound. To me honestly they were flat but fatiguing to listen to. After 30-40min of listening I'd feel my ears would hurt. They have a bit of "shouty" midrange that can but less desirable for some people. Not to mention its very important that they be run using clean class A or Class AB amps, Class-D amps from receivers and low power amps will make this sound thin and shrill.

All in all, if you are open to experiment, go for them, but if you have doubts, its okay to pass on these till you can audition in person/have the right amplification.
Not sure why OP is getting trolled...I'm not in the market for these but maybe somebody is; this is in fact a DEAL according to amazon price history unlike a lot of the garbage that's posted here.
Confused as well. This is a good price for these, I was in the market for high end speakers last month and never saw them this low.

I agree but the people on this site seem to only care about the typical JBL, Jamo, Triangle, Sony, and Klipsch, etc. speaker postings.

In terms of cost, these KEF are a few steps those ones I listed and there seems to be a belief there's no perceiveable difference, or at least not enough to justify the price to the typical slickdeals user.

To each there own but this shouldn't be "thumbs downed" either by these people. Yet, if there is a legitimate reason to downgrade this, at least state the reason why.

Is that a base port out the back or is that the tweeter?
edit: it's a base port. I thought maybe it was an omni-pole tweeter, but the tweeter just has a filter on the back.

I'm assuming because OP didn't put the price in the title? Still, seams petty and unproductive to go all mean girls on a deal forum instead of help OP out so they can correct it.

Other colors are also available for the same price.

I have the original KEF LS50 and they sound great.

I see all colors and not just white. Not a bad price. Maybe worth a try, but I'm waiting for R3 to go down in price.

I own the originals and love them. Among the best speakers I've ever owned. Been waiting for a sale on this gen 2 (called Meta, it stands for Metamaterial, not FB). Haven't been able to hear this second gen for myself, so not absolutely sure it's worth the money to upgrade (which after I sell my old ones will probably be $500).

No price in title seems to bring in a lot of angry reactions, and could be the reason of thumbs down.
