The KEF R700 speakers (available on 0% finance) exudes sophistication, not only in its contemporary design and use of high quality real wood and piano high gloss finishes, but in its class-leading sonic reproduction. The three-way design makemusic or movie sound tracks controlled, detailed and dynamic, whilst twin 6.5-inch aluminium bass drivers deliver a fast, controlled and authoritative low end.
The all-new R Series makes genuine audiophile standards of entertainment more affordable than ever before. Stunningly fluent new Uni-Q driver arrays combine with potent new bass drivers and many ingenious refinements to create a rich, spacious sound image of such accuracy that it approaches the benchmark standards of KEF’s legendary Reference Series.
The new Uni-Q MF/HF driver array is a masterpiece. Midrange response is amazingly fast and clean, thanks to a braced magnesium/aluminium alloy cone, with KEF’s Z-flex surround smoothing the transition to the front panel and a sturdy die-cast aluminium chassis that prevents resonance being transferred to the cabinet.
At the acoustic centre of the midrange cone is the sophisticated vented tweeter that endows KEF Blade with such startlingly pure HF response. With a large neodymium magnet and a computer-optimised dome structure so stiff that it operates pistonically over its entire working range, the upper registers are articulated with flawless precision – and to capitalise on Uni-Q’s point source characteristics,
The new bass driver is equally impressive. The combination of a massive vented magnet assembly and a large, lightweight aluminium voice coil driving a light, stiff and strong hybrid cone assures clean, deep and uncompressed bass output with superb dynamics and power handling.
Inside the cabinets every single component confirms KEF’s technology leadership. Computer-designed crossovers allow the level of each driver to be fine-tuned for a smoother, flatter response.
The all-new R Series represents a decisive step forward in the enjoyment of music or film. By incorporating the high end technologies of previous KEF masterpieces in a classically elegant format, it gives serious audiophiles phenomenally accurate reproduction that neither adds to nor subtracts from the original recording: refined, spacious and exquisitely detailed. For those whose appreciation of true audio excellence outstrips their bank balance, look no further than new R series!
'...this KEF can also sort out complex or densely orchestrated music with relative ease; it’s always possible to hear what’s being contributed to the background of a piece even in the context of busy material' (Hi-Fi Choice magazine July 2012)
