    They are definitely a bit special in my view. Better than any of the contemporary KEF 'Reference' models of the time. Online user opinions suggest I'm not the only one who thinks so. Good ones getting scarce now and prices are on the up!

    Even the budget KEFs from that late 70s early 80s period were well engineered.

    I had the Cadenzas for a while, a friend has them now and they are just outstanding in his open plan house, you'd think he'd paid thousands for them.

    Although if KEF have ever done a properly bad speaker I can't think of it. Even those little Eggs were good.

    The Cadenzas were the forerunner to the Reference 104 and 104AB, which in turn led to the Calinda, another speaker that has yet to receive proper recognition. They were pretty decent. I never quite came to terms with the 'rubbery' bass from the ABR in the Cadenza and 104s, but I think it was better controlled in the Calinda.

    Ah right it was the Calinda I had not the Cadenza. I always get them mixed up.

    There's a tidy set of Calindas not far from me for less than £200. I might get tempted.

    Hi Shane, hope all is well. How's Wales?

    I've got two systems rigged up. KEF on the end of the NAD in one room and Monitor Audio with Promitheus TVC and Alphason Adonis power amp in the other. Plugging whichever CD player suits me at the time.

    What are you using?

    Hello Geoff.

    I'm alright. Still adjusting to Wales. I miss Torquay a little bit.

    I have a pair of Dali Spektor 1 Speakers packed away. Also got a NAD C516BEE CD Player lying around. Might think about getting the Vista Spark Amplifier - http://www.vista-audio.com/products/Spark/index.htm

    Well the Monitor Audio R852 MD speakers were collected by the new owner today. He seemed rather chuffed.

    I have slightly mixed feelings, as they were sounding pretty damn good on some Christine Collister and K D Lang this morning. Female vocals suited them well.

    **I’ve studied deeply in the philosophies and religions, but cheerfulness kept breaking through**

    **Hate makes you impotent, Love makes you crazy. Somewhere in the middle you can survive.**

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    Then I saw it. I saw a mum who would die for her son. A man who would kill for his wife. A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it.

    “There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!”
