    I had a pair with the A500, youíll like top end and bassjob done
    They were mine he said he really wanted a pair and we spent ages talking about the sound and amplification options. He then persuaded me to knock them down to about £600 and stuck them on eBay an hour later for about £1.7k.

    I had the ref 2, but that was before I had the s500, used them with the Quad/croft and I found them rather uninvolving and quite unmusical.

    S500 now with David being serviced/modded. Swapped the K's back with their original owner for some mid 90s? AN Js in lovely condition, gonna wait till I get the S500 back to try them though. Be interesting to hear the difference between them and the ks, the J's are a fair bit bigger than I imagined.
