The KEF R100 speakers (available on 0% finance when you spend over £1000) are a masterpiece in miniaturisation, strikingly designed with a fast, clean and agile sound. Despite the single Uni-Q array driver, the R100 delivers a low end performance you'd expect from a speaker double its size or with a dedicated LF driver.
Brilliantly designed, the Uni-Q driver array makes the smallest R Series bookshelf speaker an astonishing performer. This R series speaker also features a choice of beautifully finished woods and is arguably one of the best looking speakers from KEF yet!
The R Series presents the high-end technologies of KEF Blade in a timeless, elegant format. Designed from the ground up, the R series is a towering leap forward that creates a new dimension in sonic authenticity. Amazingly fast and clean mid-range response. Startlingly pure high frequencies. All operating as a single perfectly integrated voice to deliver sweet, accurate sounds of unprecedented clarity.
The new Uni-Q driver array is nothing short of a masterpiece. Unlike conventional speakers, the mid-range cones are rigid magnesium/aluminum constructions that reduce breakup problems. The new mid-range Z-flex surround smoothes the tweeter transition to the front baffle, which results in undistorted high frequencies. Large voice coils increase power handling and dynamics, reducing distortion and delivering exceptional vocal clarity.
The geometry and bracing of the enclosure optimises vibrational behavior, reducing secondary radiation from cabinet walls for a cleaner sound. Damping panels further minimize cabinet resonance and colouration. Front baffles are clean with no visible screws. Grilles are fixed magnetically. Available in real Walnut veneer, or highly polished Piano Black, the R Series complements the home as much as it respects the music.
Serious audiophiles can now enjoy phenomenally accurate reproduction that neither adds nor subtracts from the original recording. Indulge in a near-Reference experience at a price that will also be music to your ears. Refined, spacious and exquisitely detailed, you won't just hear music the way it was intended it to be. You'll live it, feel it and love it.

An extremely talented speaker: we can’t wait to see what the rest of the range has to offer. With a new range usually comes new speaker technologies, and that’s the case here. The nine-model line-up calls on some of the design philosophy behind KEF’s state-of-the-art, £20,000 Blade speakers – for example, the 25mm aluminium dome tweeter is a vented design. there’s an impressive order and precision to the various elements of a track. There’s a fine sense of space, with the vocals and instruments clearly positioned and well-defined.
