It seems to me like you have quite some experiance with Abrahamsen on this forum. I would love to know if you think KEF would be a good match for my Abrahamsen v2.0? Apparantly matching is everything when it comes to Abrahamsen. Im thinking of switching my B&W DM683 with a pair of KEF iQ9.
What do you think?
Thank you for your help

KEF + Abrahamsen

Kef iQ9 could be an good match IF you have the room for it. I have heard iQ9 and Abrahamsen in a small room-to much bass because of standing waves.

Funny you should say that because I actually considered going with the bookshelf version instead (the iQ3) after having A LOT of problems with too much muddy bass on my B&W 683.
I've heard so many horror stories about bad matching :lol:

Cool. I just ordered a pair of KEF iQ3. Cant wait to listen to them hooked up to my Abr. v2.0.
Could you guys recommend some black speakerstands well-suited for the iQ3?

I've had the iQ3 for 6 months now and used a old surround reciever + some shitty cables but the sound was still amazingly good. Cant wait to play them with the Xindak XA6950 waiting in the post office:-D

Congratz with the Xindak!
Im on my knees praying that Abrahamsen will be able to turn my iQ3 into something beautiful Ive been suffering with bad acoustics for far too long, so I think I deserve some luck with my choice in speakers for once ops:

There's no luck involved in choosing Kef.
I'm positive you'll love the iQ3's

iq9 to much bass
hi. i have abrahamsen + iq9 and think it is to much bass. do u know other speakers that will work better? like.dali mentor 6 or b&w 703?? or do i have to go with smaller speakers like b&w 805s or dali mentor 1?

Have you considered speakers like the Triangle Antal's?
French speakers which are wellreviewed all over.
I guess their fast, punchy bass, dynamic midband and crisp top would be a good match for Abrahamsen's tube-like sound.
Since the bassport is placed in the front the bass wouldn't be enhanced the same way as a design with it placed on the back. This also makes it less sensitive about placing it close to a back-wall.
