Thanks Psyop, good advice. The problem is believe it or not there is no one in the Boston area that carries the Kefs that I can find!

Audio Video Therapy in Nashua NH is a Kef dealer. I just listened to the new R7 powered by the Naim Unity Nova. This combo was outstanding IMO. I own the R700's and drive them with the Primaluna Dialog HP integrated using the stock tubes. This IMO is another great combo. I don't you will be disappointed. Ask for John, he is the owner. They carry the full line of Kef speakers. Good luck.
eag618: My room is kinda of small at 11x15 so the bass l am getting is well defined and deep enough for my satisfaction for the type of music i listen too being jazz, blues and rock. Imaging is great, as an example, being able to tell if the drummer is off to the right or left to the vocalist with a real convincing soundstage. I liked these speakers so much, i purchased the R600c & R300 to for my HT. I use the new Parasound 5 channel amp A52+ for HT and back round music. Very impressed with this amp. As i meant to say, i don't think you will be disappointed. I ended up getting these when Kef was closing them out at 25% off retail. Good luck.
While you are waiting for other suggestions I think brian27b has given great advice. You could find another dealer in Nashua that carries the ML speakers and set up two listening sessions on the same day. One for the KEF and another for the ML. Just make sure the amp is similar to yours. That way if you clearly like one over the other, buy the pair you like, pack them in your vehicle and avoid the potential for shipping damage. Just make sure the dealer is a reputable one and will take care of you.
BTW, keep an open mind. Sometimes dealers can offer to let you listen to another brand that YOU may like even more. I did like KEF, but I listened to Vandersteen and liked them better with my music, my ears. Not saying any brand is better than another, just find the one you’ll be happy with.
