  1. Hi, From my 2017 posting after some months with my new Kii Threes. Going into 2021, my Kii Threes still sound (even better/ with newer software) in my living room! The brand new KEF LS50 wireless II are mainly used for A/B testing my own recordings, tv sound, and "radio/background music" "My 2017 impression "short" summary: -The Kii Control is a necessary component for getting the best result from these active speakers. My $10K preamp with a built
  2. No audio & video lag / lip sync issue at all.. All my TV watching are from Apple TV 4K box and OPPO blue ray → hdmi to my Sony 65XE9505 → optical out, sound setup in Sony TV. I prefer just to have the sound in stereo also from the TV. I could also have used HDMI direct to the new KEF LS50 II but the optical solution works and sound very good and the optical cable are more easy to handle. The OPPO blue-ray player also are connected to the Kii Three speakers/Kii Control with coax cable, here I have to adjust the latency / lip sync in the Kii Control setup.
  3. After 50-60 hours break in period I must just say that the new KEF LS50 wireless II are a fantastic speaker for the money..! The new KEF Connect app are also simple and a joy to use compared to the old solution..Compared to my Kii Threes they are not quit there, but we here talking 5 -6 times the price include the Kii Control and original stands. My new KEF's presents a wide and deep and quit precise sound with a fast and deep low end and they can also play loud without loosing the control. The details from the new tweeter are also impressing. They are not ROON certificated yet so
  4. Updated Kii Control and the Kii Threes to latest/final final version KC v2.3, Speaker PIC v3.8, Speaker DSP v4.8. This took me only 6-7 minutes from my MacBook Pro. No issues at all ...Playing one of my favourite track now and the Kii Three's sounds so good .... maybe better than ever..?
  5. Updating my 3 year old Kii Threes and the Kii Contol with the latest sowftware also did something to the performance. The overall soundstage has been "tightened up" a bit, resulting in even better/faster dynamics and better separation of the instruments and voices in the mix. I had a really good time playing some of my favorite music tracks both from vinyl and the Aries G2 yesterday evening. My turntable have never sounded better! This was an unexpected Christmas gift from Kii Audio
  6. This new version of the Update tool really did the trick . The Kii Control and my 3 year old Kii Three's now have the latest software and sound better than ever and also some dB louder on my Kii Control ref. volum levels in my living room.. This was however the first pair Kii Three speakers to arrive in Norway late 2016, serial no. 0416 and 0417 ( now says "0" in Kii Control )
  7. My Kii Control has version 0.3. Havn't tried the "send system report". My MacBook have the OS Mojave 10.14.6. I have also tried my Windows 10 pc and it also will not start the update after the Kii application recognise the two speakers.
  8. I downloaded the V1.09 Kii updater on my MacBook pro. It says it connected to both speakers with usb but it crashes at once I push "update" button in the KII Updater application. Can't do any upgrade..
  9. I think TheStupidOne ( who probally did his listenig experience with the same BXT set-up as myself ) has pointed very well out the differences and some of the main advatages of adding the BXT to the Kii Three. I will also add the overall presentage of the sounstage impressed me a lot, better 3D and placement of the instruments when listenig to my well known reference music...and the system also performed superb when playing at a lower level.
  10. I sometimes use my Kii Three's as a test monitor for my own and my musician friends home-studio work before the finale mixing process. It's also a big help to use the KEF LSX in this process. Then I get two differnt approaches to the music. The KEF LSX will be allow to stay in my living room together with the Kii Three's who has taken care of all my "serious" listening to my favourite music now for more than two years. I'm still very happy with my Kii Three speakers but the BXT are still on my wishing list (Yes, I have done a long listing test to the full BXT system 😀👍)
  11. From my earlier post what I experienced improved my set up with the Kii Three: "- Using better power cables with much better (Furutech) connectors also will have a positive impact on the overall soundstage. - My original Kii stands are nice but the top-plate with the gasket will have a full connection to the speakers. This causes the speaker stand to vibrate and also make unwanted resonances to my wooden floor and again had a bad impact on my turntable. Solution: Fill the stands with sand and I have also used four extra rubber dampers on the top-plates to lift the speakers apr
  12. The distance between the speakers, the amount of toe in and the distance to the listing position together with the overall condition of the listening room will all have a impact how the final result from the Kii Three will be.( as all other speakers I have had in my listening room) I have 220 cm between the speakers with a toe in towards my listening position at 275 cm from the speakers. The speakers are about 60 cm out from the back wall. The amount of toe in has varied, but if I draw a line from the tweeters it will point aprox. 50 cm beside each side of my ears. This sounds quite
  13. The two woofers on the back of my Kii Three's are aprox. 60 cm / 23 inches out from the wall. Boundary setting are now 0. I have made an angled stainless stand for my Kii Control. The dB settings are visible from my listening position.
  14. The placement according to the back wall and side walls will influence the overall presentation from the Kii Three's. This is my experience after listening to these superb speakers in my living room for two years now. Yes, the DSP settings can do much especially for the lower frequency beneath 50-60 Hz but I find the overall sound performance are even better with more air around the speakers. @bobfa I will recommend testing this beautiful Kii There/BXT setup with some different placement, especially from the back wall and also the toe-in towards your listening position. Cong
  15. My Kii Three speakers are now two years old. I'm very happy and impressed with the sound in my living room from my quite simple setup ( compared to my earlier bigger and more expensive systems). My Clearaudio Concept turntable with Audio-Technica AT33PTG/II pick up with Rega Fono MC Phono Stage connected with a special made rca/XLR cable direct into the back of each of the Kii's sounds really nice and are beeing used for "late night with a good wine listening". That leaves me with 3 digital inputs on my Kii Control and one analog input on the back of the speakers. All 4 sources with a possib
