Default Anybody use Ken Kreisel/M&K speakers?

Hi,

I couldn't seem to find an official thread for Ken Kreisel/M&K satellite speakers. From what I have read the biggest studios, producers, directors such as Lucasfilm Ltd, 20th Century Fox, Universal and Warner Bros to name a few use them.

Movies like Star Wars, Lord of The Rings and King Kong were mixed using Ken Kreisel speakers.

Would it be true to say that since MK/KK speakers are used by many studios and directors/producers for mixing movies like Star Wars and King Kong that using these speakers will be closest to the director/producer's intention as to how the audio should sound compare to using floorstanding/bookshelf speakers from companies like B&W, JBL, Kplisch, Dynaudio?

The only downside I can see is that satellite speakers may have problems covering very large rooms compared to floorstanding speakers.

Would be interested to hear your thoughts and anybody that own KK or M&K speakers.

If you were to listen to the Star Wars prequel trilogy on an M&K 150 system(original M&K when Ken Kreisel owned the company) then you will hear them exactly as they were heard when the sound was mixed. Lucasfilm used these speakers to mix the trilogy.
