The only part I miss slightly from not having a 5.1 system anymore is the sub for some movies. The compact size of this makes it tempting, the cost makes it not.

Great engineering achievement but to what end? This thing is basically an 11" cube. Going just slightly larger (14-15" cubed) gets you a real quality 12" sub like the Rythmik L12 for only $600.

I fail to see the point of needing to get such a small sub and dealing with the significant cost and output compromises.

I've a Definitive Technology Super Cube 1, which goes to 16HZ in my 1st 5.1 HT. The wife required me to go on a quest for an acceptably invsible HT system for our new home & new primary HT system. The KC62 can do what the Super Cube 1 can do & do it more accurately! Try playing a recording of a space shuttle launch, as realistically as your hearing can stand and you won't be disappointed. This is an engineering accomplishment for size & output.

As an aside, the KEF spec sheet has this going down to 11HZ.

Small enough to stay out of the way in a workstation system ... hmmm. Might be a good addition to my Altec speakers, that give up around 45-50 hz.

As for other things mentioned:
Here's a story about a 18000 yr old conch shell found in a cave, played:
And there are pipe organs that have extremely low bass. Probably the deepest is the Sydney Town Hall with a true 64' stop (one of only a few in the world). Somehow, I doubt that the mp3's on the web site capture the full range. Could the KEF produce usable output of the bottom octave (8-16 Hz)?
