The ground breaking Meta technology is now in the KEF Blade, Blade2 and the Reference series. This is no small tweak, rather a complete look at what can be done in total so although the cabinets are the same size everything is improved and you can tell when you listen, it’s obvious. Call or email to arrange an appointment to have a listen 

Kef Prices have increased so previous news items below will have old prices, as an example the award winning LS50 Meta on the next line are now £ 1099, still the best sound at their price !



Anyone paying attention at all will know that the LS50 that came out about 6 years ago has been a worldwide success for it's amazing sound from ground-breaking technology. Even more impressive is that the Kef boffins have done it again! LS50 Meta is even better!

Kef have recently celebrated 50 years of manufacturing fine loudspeakers. From the early innovations of founder/designer Raymond Cooke the design firsts just keep on coming. Pure research at the highest level gives the expertise to improve the entire range. No other speaker is investing so much in pure performance firsts.

The latest high end revolutions of Muon and Blade develop technology that are clearly visible in the latest series of T, Q, R, and Reference.

Our favourites are the LS50, brilliant little package with nothing to come close for £999

The R series gives a bigger sound and deeper bass, R3 bookshelf models have also had top reviews everywhere at £ 1299. The R5 and R7 floorstanders are absolute bargains.

Nothing comes close in floorstanding speakers at £ 1999-2600

Here are the models:

T series, the beautiful new baby

Cynical hifi professionals (such as me) had to experience these to believe them. A new magnet development has given these super slim surround speakers a brilliant sound from a case slimmer than the slimmest flatscreen.

Full 5.1 systems range from £ 1200 to £ 1700, our favourite is the middle one, T205, a bargain for £ 1500

It's that good!

The new R5s at £ 1999 are a star, how do they achieve deep controlled bass from such a slim cabinet? Always on demonstration
