Hi guys, \n\nFinally, after such a struggle and years of hard work, I was able to put down for the KEF Q950, with q650c. Going for 150s, and in ceiling as well in the near future. \n\nThe boss lady understood and agreed that an amp upgrade is necessary too... So I think that I could get away with $1400 CAD... What's that,... bout $100 USD now? I'd just about given up on being able to upgrade, so I've not kept up with all the new amp news. \n\nLast I'd been tuned in were those vids where Gene warned of some dishonest specs to look out for. Keen on yamaha this round, conscious Denon are awesome as well. \n\nLooking for a recommendation to drive these puppies with ease, eventually a 7.2.4, with all the right tech. Above all what I care about most is lifespan. Very open to being proposed NAD gear as well. Like the modular way they went. \n\nIf it's a waste not to spend more, I can make it work, to save for a better avr. Interested in your feedback. \n\nThanks guys.
