Krix Neuphonix MK1 advice needed

Recommended Posts

Hello ALl

I have the chance to pick up a pair of krix neuphonix mk1's. My home theatre currently has a pair of Bower and wilkins 683's MK1. It looks like I could almost swap the krix and sell the 683's for around the same price.

Will this be a significant upgrade in sound quality (I know everything is relative but will I notice)

Thanks very much

You'll notice a difference... but only you'll know if it's an upgrade or not - in room.

For home theatre use Im looking for big sound. I have some linn Isobariks for stereo applications.

Hard to say until you compare them side by side in same room.

 

Krix is valued more rrp, perhaps bigger bass, whereas the BW has a bigger midrange driver and metal dome tweeter so maybe sound balance is more that pronounced, just guessing.

 

Overall the Krix on paper should be better but the personally I’m not a big fan of the ring radiator Vifa tweeter sound, very dry and uninviting.

In HT it most likely will not be a significant upgrade.  Also will the Krix match the centre speaker?  And I think the Krix is a 4ohm load?

Thanks all

The centre that is with the krix here is just the smaller centrix but I have a b&W HTM61 which is a bigger centre.

I will hold out for a more significant upgrade rather than a sidegrade
