What astonished me at once was the sheer transparency of the Kensington, rivalling the Quads in the precision of its soundstage and in the depth and effortless layering of the image. I've not before heard anything quite so coherent from a box loudspeaker.... The Kensington is one of a very small number of loudspeakers that I would say have truly graced my listening room in the quarter century that I have been writing about audio equipment...set up carefully and driven with a top quality power amplifier and front end components, it is capable of coming within a whisker of emulating that "open window on the event" which, for me at least, is what high fidelity is all about.
