Mcintosh 250 Transformer Hum Normal
Hi Escorial, you could ask a shop to borrow a dc blocker for power amps and see if it helps... This could reduce or eliminate the hum and even improve sound quality, should dc on the ac line be indeed the problem 
Kef Blade or Kef Blade Two for bigger room
Thank you Ayrefan for the long and detailed info!Seems there are a lot of happy Blade 2 campers out there 😎I am wondering if any Blade one owners want to chip in and tell us their experiences? 
Kef Blade or Kef Blade Two for bigger room
Just remeasured my room, 4.65 m to be exact... leaving 65 for the width of the speakers I could put them 2 m apart and leave 1m each side... But still room treatment then would be needed seems...No idea if the big blade would be at disavantage bec...

i just found a Dutch review saying the same as Audiotroy, both Blades sound alike but the bigger sounds bigger, giving off more energy... which one is best depends on the room you use it in...How much distance is recommended from the side and rear...

 Thx for the detailed info Steve Z! Only thing you did not mention is where you positioned the Blade Two. Do you position them in the width of 3.70 m, firing down the lenght of the room (as I would prefer) or the other way round? How much space so...

Interesting even experts seem to have different opinions...Johan Coorg from Kef itself said in his home he preferred the Two, the big Blade overloaded his room he said, needing room treatment, the Two just fit right in...No specs on his room howev...

Hegel with Blade was probably Blade 2...To get back on topic...🙂 This post wasn’t really Kef Blade vs Vivid Giya but Kef Blade one vs two...😎 Anyone else had a chance to compare both? Thx

To be fair, I did not get to play my own music on the big giyas... so that could put them at a disadvantage to reach me emotionally... Price difference is there though... the smaller and less pricey giyas simply put the soundstage too low for me...

Audiotroy, Kef Blades and Vivid Giya indeed both use the side woofer vibration cancelling arangement. Hower the coaxial midrange tweeter horn loaded in the blade vs the multiple domes in the vivid giyas are very different. Also in crossover topolo...

I forgot to ask, which one is best suited for low level listening? 
Kef Blade or Kef Blade Two for bigger room
Hello Audiotroy, rest of my system consists of Halcro DM10 preamp, and T+A MP3000 HV cdplayer, audioquest wild wood speaker cable.With this system my BW800 matrixes sound more detailed and effortless louder then before, but much less warm as well ... 
Kef Blade or Kef Blade Two for bigger room
Thx, for your replies guys! I heard both blades in closed rooms much wider then mine...As stated my L shaped room is only 4.8 meters wide, would this pose a problem? I would like to put them in same position as my current speakers: My bw 800 matri...
