Recommendation on power amp
I would also like to hear them with the new Parasound JC-5. 
Recommendation on power amp
 I have a pair of Blade 2's that I have owned since 2015. They work well in both mid sized and small rooms. I was shocked that they did not overload my 12' x 13' office. They are better in a larger room away from boundaries, but were surprisingly ... 
Why so many used focals?
I agree with emcade. Don't sell the Electras short either. The 1028be and 1038be can sound spectacular. The 1028 be are my wife's favorite speakers in our home. She loves the way they look and sound (she has very good ears). I had to promise that ... 
BEST FEMALE VOCAL EVER
I love Eva Cassidy!!! Don't sell Linda Ronstadt short. The "What's New" album recorded with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra is amazing!!! 
SPEAKERS, SPEAKERS AND MORE SPEAKERS.. BUT NEED BASS.?
SVS subs are terrific, but you won't need one with KEF R 700's (currently available at close-out prices). You will need quality, high current amplification to drive them. 
Cover songs that are better than the originals.
Allman Brothers "Heart Of Stone", Frampton's "Black Hole Sun." 
Opinions on these budget integrateds?
I have heard the Parasound Halo many times paired with all sorts of different speakers (at a local High-End store;Quest For Sound), It has always sounded very good! The Prima Luna integrateds have "blown me away" when paired with newer Maggies (.7...

Looking for speaker recommendations
Magnepan 1.7i. I have heard them twice, once with a Prima Luna 35 wpc tube integrated and also with a pair of Bel Canto class D mono blocks. They were shockingly good both times! 
For those of us over 60..
The Allman Brothers Band! The Outlaws and Skynyrd are right up there with the ABB. Honorable Mentions to Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, The Beatles and The Stones. Love so many more from the classic rock genre! 
Mark Levinson 432 vs 532 vs 532H
My 532H arrived today. I switched out my Rogue Stereo 100 (which I really like) and installed the 532H into my rack. The preamp is a Sonic Frontiers Line 2 SE and the speakers are KEF Blade 2's.It was one of those holy Mother Of God experiences!!!... 
Come on people....BASS!
Many such misspellings are a result of careless use of voice recognition and autocorrection. I am often the practitioner/victim of these word crimes. It becomes very tedious to re-read and edit texts and dictated messages. Sometimes, you make the ... 
Best full range loudspeaker for the used price of 10 to 13,000 dollars
There are so many excellent speakers out there. I happened to be a big fan of KEF. I own the blade twos and find them to be amazing! It may be possible to find a pair for $13,000 in excellent used condition. If not I agree with a previous post abo... 
Standmount speakers 4k-8k
The KEF reference one are the best that I have heard in this price range. I own a pair of the blade two, and feel that the reference one are very competitive.  I have heard them with a number of amplifiers and source components in a listening room... 
Your single favorite component
I've had many but my current "love" is a newly acquired Esoteric SA-50 CD/SACD player.
