  1. KEF T-Series T205 review

    KEF T-Series T205 review

    10  

    KEF's new T-Series range of home cinema speakers are definitely a sign of the times. They've been designed with a clear purpose in mind – to be an aesthetic match to newer, thinner, flatscreen TVs, enabling buyers to couple their hi-def movies with authentic 5.1 sound without their living room looking like a branch of Sevenoaks.

    KEF KIT160 review

    8  

    All-in-one surround sound systems are ten-a-penny these days, but it’s not often we come across one with the credentials of the KIT160. This 2.1, multidriver 5.1-home cinema system costs around £1,800, marking it out as a genuine high-end solution rather than a cut-price compromise.

    KEF XQ10 review

    8  

    The mid-price XQs are the latest range from KEF and this £700 XQ10 is the smaller of two standmounts and sister model to the £1,000 XQ20 (reviewed in HFC 307). Key features include KEF’s Uni-Q driver, cunningly curved cabinetwork and beautifully lacquered real wood veneer finish.

    KEF XQ20 review

    8  

    Founded back in the 1960s, KEF (an acronym for Kent Engineering Foundries) has long operated at the leading edge of hi-fi loudspeaker design. Even though the company has undergone numerous changes, its approach to design and technology has remained remarkably consistent throughout.

    KEF Picoforte One review

    9  

    Normally found on powerful home cinema speakers, the KEF badge on this novel iPod system guarantees some serious audio prowess.The bitrate that your iPod music is encoded in will decide how much, of course, but the Picoforte One - an even meatier Picoforte Three model is also available - offers some serious all-round power.

    KEF Q Series review

    KEF Q Series review

    9  

    In the same way that there is a definite hot price point of around £350 for subwoofers, there is a massive amount of competition for your money from speaker manufacturers aimed at cinephiles prepared to spend around £1,000 on a 5.1 speaker system

    KEF Reference Model 201/2 review

    8  

    This pretty, compact but unquestionably muscular - and decidedly expensive - standmount is the first model in KEF's new Reference Series to escape from captivity. The anticipation has been growing for months

    KEF Model 7 review

    8  

    A system that promises surround sound without the surrounding speakers, KEF's Model 7 speakers are from the manufacturer's new, swish-looking 'fivetwo' series. For your money you get two very attractive speakers

    KEF iQ1 speaker system review

    KEF iQ1 speaker system review

    9  

    KEF's Uni-Q technology is one of the two keys to the iQ1 system, as it has been for other KEF systems over many years. But this system is not just another retread of a familiar (if proprietary) technology.

    KEF iQ3 review

    KEF iQ3 review

    9  

    The iQ3 is the larger of two iQ standmounts, and is based on a solitary 165mm Uni-Q drive unit - an exclusive KEF coaxial design - to handle the bass, midrange and treble. The enclosure features beautifully curved and tapered sides

    KEF KHT2005.2 review

    8  

    KEF's little Eggs helped redefined the sub/sat market when they burst on to the scene a few years ago. There have been plenty of pretenders to KEF's throne since, some of which have performed better than these little beauties

    KEF Instant Theatre review

    8  

    While surround sound is great, not everyone wants five speakers and miles of cabling cluttering up their living room. KEF's Instant Theatre is a cleverly designed system that utilises just two main speakers placed either side of the TV.
