The KEF Q300 speakers (available on 0% finance when you spend over £1000) sound is quite surprising for their size: lush, spacious and precisely defined (more so than the smaller Q100) with compelling midrange/HF response and solid, immaculately controlled bass. The tQ300 with the 165mm (6.5in.) variant – deliver all the benefits of the Uni-Q ‘point source’ configuration in its latest and most refined form: a more accurate sound image dispersed more evenly throughout the room than is possible with any conventional speaker.
Whether as main speakers, music speakers for your study or family room, rear speakers in a home theatre system or general purpose speakers for multi-room set-ups, the two new Q bookshelf models open up a world of audiophile quality sound at a surprisingly affordable price. At its heart is a brand new Uni-Q driver array. Derived from the Concept Blade project, with a new, larger, high performance vented tweeter mounted at the acoustic centre of a new metal cone LF/MF driver, it combines lavishly extended bandwidth with effortless dynamics, imperceptible distortion and outstanding acoustic clarity.
Subjectively, it makes a huge difference. Because everyone in the room is enveloped in the same beautifully integrated three-dimensional sound image, viewing becomes more of a shared experience – and you no longer have to stay in the same spot to get the full enjoyment from your favourite tracks.
Product of the Year - best standmounter £350-£700, Awards 2011. Deeply impressive in almost every respect, the Q300s represent an impressive return to form from KEF. (What Hi-Fi Magazine)
Imposing and good-looking; good build; tremendously detailed, dynamic and eloquent sonic performance. (What Hi-Fi Magazine)
These new KEFs are a compulsory audition: they're a seriously entertaining listen. (What Hi-Fi Magazine)
Fine, engaging standmounters, but not quite at the top anymore. There’s a wall-mount bracket on the back, but use those and you won’t do yourself (or the sound) any favours. You’ll also want to position them away from the wall: that sizeable reflex port may be at the front, but the Q300s demand some free space.There’s high level of separation that makes it easy to locate specific instruments, and yet the level of integration is such that everything works together instead of sticking out. If you’re a bit of a thrill-seeker, this will bring a smile to your face. Combine the linear dynamic response with an good sense of timing, and the KEFs are engaging enough to make you wave your remote about like a baton. (What Hi-Fi Magazine)
