  1. That said, I did sense a limit of how loud the Kii Threes would play. Putzeys explained: "The average output in digital recordings varies between –4dB for a lot of modern pop and rock and –20dB for some audiophile recordings, especially classical. What other high-end systems do is simply put in so much gain that you can play quiet recordings ridiculously loud but the risk of what happens when they forget to take the volume down when playing something else is borne completely by the user! I don't find that an acceptable solution. So I set the input sensitivity such that a maximally loud signal replayed at 100 is the loudest the speaker can do (allowing excursion limitation for sub frequencies, of course). Normally speaking, good recordings will be mastered such that at least the loudest passage will actually hit full scale, give or take, which means that 100 is still as loud as the speaker will go and that ought to be plenty." It was plenty—once I stopped trying to find the Kii Threes' limits and just paid attention to the music they made. Kal Rubinson
  2. Where are you Martijn, he who is so concerned about our simple questions? You have time over on Gearslutz to diss the Kiis (ineffectually), but none to reply here!
  3. BXT specs now on the Kii website: https://www.kiiaudio.com/bxt.php
  4. Hi Mitch, could to please reach out again, because he hasn't responded?
  5. Almost certainly. The DSP will stop overload. It's designed that way. How about you? You seem to get hot under the collar with little provocation, and take an inordinate time to cool down.
  6. The limiting is what ensures that the drivers don't exit the enclosure. You can turn them up to eleven, and you won't hurt them.
  7. Thanks Mitch, very good of you, and thanks!
  8. Hi Mitch, do you know if Martijn @mensink is going to get back to us or not?
  9. There's a review of the THREEs+BXT here: https://www.audioaficionado.org/showthread.php?p=935959 I get the general impression that he quite liked them!

  11. Not this second, but it's in Johnny Darko interview with him on YouTube. Should be easy to find.
