Hi all

I am in research mode to see what speakers to get for our multipurpose kids playroom/my media room. My budget is about $2,000 and it must be small form factor and out of reach of small hands as well as pass the WAF.

So far it's the kef home theatre e305 package that I can source locally or the orb peoples choice package that I would import. Both are about the same price by the time freight and tax are taken into account.

It will be mainly for movies/tv

Just wondering if anyone had any experience with either of these sets?

To be honest, our opinion doesn't matter much at all...
Listen to the speakers and choose what you like the sound of. Audio reviews are often more about the reviewers room (and its effect on the sound) than the speakers / amplification...

Thanks Dunners
I was going to see if I can have a listen of the Kefs at Avalon Audio who supply them. The orbs on the other hand I don't think I will be able to as they are an online store in the US.
Cheers
