The very deepest bass in “Rock You Gently,” from the Warnes disc, was definitely less pronounced through the KEFs, making its sound seem a bit lightweight in comparison — it was missing the song’s subsonic foundation. The KEF’s lack of subterranean bass on this track tended to make Warnes’s voice more prominent in the mix — which was not a bad thing, as even the MLs couldn’t match the KEF’s ultrasmooth, ultrarefined midrange.
