Have you heard the speakers side by side against Tad? How would you know how good they are unless you have at least heard them? Are you perhaps making the mistake of equating price with performance? Thats a common audiophile fallacy.
Who’s to say IKEA can’t beat them? Let’s hear a true unbiased review comparing them to IKEA
You are right. Some people may prefer the ikea speaker. A common complaint even with high end speaker is that its too bright. So whos to say the ikea would not be more appealing to those people? And its a fraction of the cost.
I have heard Bose and sonos speakers as well as the KEF ref 1. The kef sounded horrible and was several thousand dollars.
How about listening to them for one's self, after all, you are the end user. If the kef speakers had perfect measurements, does that mean you would like them. Or, you being a specs. guy, do excellent specs., mean you must like them?
If it gets more people listening to a stereo system I would consider it a win win situation because eventually some of them are going to wonder what else is out there and is it better. That’s how a lot of us started out.

"...the body was found perforated by the shards of an IKEA music unit purchased by the victim. It had been attached to his 500 watt amplifier in an apparent protest that backfired. A neighbor commented: "Dereck really took just the existence of it as a weird Nordic plot to further degenerate the musical appreciation of the public at large. That's why he was videoing the whole affair....a shame, really.." Police are investigating the disappearance of the media that recorded the whole event. Rumors are rampant that copies are being distributed amongst the 'audiophile community'...."
Please note: The above does not promote any hostile and/or implied means nor desire to encourage explosive means or methodologies towards other AG posters, real or implied. Is is a work of fantasy. Much like the impressions achieved by various audio 'tweaks'. Imho....;)
