KEF blades 2 or Dynaudio C4?


Hi guys, I am trying very soon the Luxman monos M900. I am wondering based on your experience and knowledge which speakers of these two would be a better match for them?
My room 18x12. High ceilings.
I prefer low volume music effortless neutral sound. I had owned KEF 3 and I liked them a lot.
But today I asked three dealers and I got mixed opinions. 
I do appreciate your time giving me your opinion. Kind regards.
Thank you.

Emaillists, most of the shows that the Blades have been shown at have been setup by KEF and so the partnering gear is usually good but not top of the line electronics, cabling and source components.

Peter Bruninnger of AVS Showrooms, complemented our setup of the Blades saying that in all the times he heard the Blades he never loved them until he heard our setup. 

We are not saying that we are necessarily better then any other dealer, only that we put together a well matched setup that did honor to the Blades.

One of the things that we tend to do differently is to try different brands of electronics, cabling and sources until we come up with a synergistic match.  Too many dealers will not necessairly go shopping for a new brand of product or products if what they have doesn't really work. 

Most people will expect to drive a $25-32k set of speakers with proper matching electronics which in our mind would be $20k+ range of electronics, not including a proper source $7-20k range and matching cabling and power conditioning. 

If you look at some of the show setups they have been $5k integrated amps, a laptop vs a dedicated server, and relatively inexpensive cabling.

If you drive the Kef's correctly the top end is detailed with no harshness, you get thunderous deep bass, incredible dynamics and a very wide and well focused soundstage.

The Dynaudio's are very musical speakers their approach to driver design is more old school, Kef is always pushing the boundary of design and technology like very few small companies can do. 

If you read the white papers on the Blade and Reference series their are so many advanced technologies seen in these loudspeakers that have been implimented in order to lower distortion and uncover details not seen in other designs.

LOL
I find the reflexive hostility to audiotroy on these forums to be undeserved.  Yes, he’s a dealer - which he discloses.  Yes, he has brand preferences - which he discloses.  Every other person who participates in these forums also has biases - most of which they don’t admit or recognize.  I find his contributions to be fair and far more informative than most participants, even if I may not agree with his conclusions or views.  I, for one, am grateful that a dealer chooses to be active here as it adds to the collective knowledge base and to lively discussion.  Those who just reflexively dismiss his contributions just because he’s a dealer are the ones devaluing the discussion and the thread.  
Frankly, Audiotroy sounds like he is a better dealer than most.  I’ve heard far too many demos where I walked away unimpressed because the synergy wasn’t there. (Pretty much every demo of B&W/McIntosh).  It was clear they didn’t do system matching, or take care in set up.
So, thank you audiotroy for your thoughtful participation and for continuing your contributions in the face of unfair criticism.
And, by the way, I’ve never done business with him/them - only my local dealer and used gear through audiogon.
