Kef Q900 vs Tannoy Revolution DC6T SE for living room open to the kitchen.

I am debating the Kef Q900 vs the Tannoy Revolution DC6T SE for my living room. We have a very open floor plan and it is basically a large rectangle that combine the kitchen and living room into one large room with a low ceiling. I have a Jolida 75 watt hybrid amp with a Nuwave DAC.

Both have great reviews. Due to the size of the room my concern is that the Tannoy only has two 6" drivers vs the Kef with 3 8" drivers. Both have comprable sensitivity. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Speakers

The Q900 has such a good bass response that almost no one would find a subwoofer to be needed.

9 out of 10 people will end up wanting a subwoofer with the Tannoy speakers (sooner or later...lol).

Personally, I am not a huge fan of the Q900 speakers, but they are certainly good speakers; it's a matter of whether you like their tonal balance or not.

I think that the PSB Image T6 is a better-sounding speaker overall, and if you get those and add a NHT B12D subwoofer you would have a superb system for about the same price. Both the Absolute Sound and Stereophile picked the Image T6 as best of class and recommended them for system packages repeatedly,

Kef Q900

Went with the Kefs as I got a great deal. They sound great to me, but its my first system so I'm no expert.
