Summary: Background: Not an audiophile by a long shot. But love honest good sound. Music genre: Jazz, blues and classicals. I am using the IQ90 as a dedicated music system. It was to replace a wonderful pair of 602 S3. Already have a 5.1 HT set-up by B&W in a separate room.
Summary: Came across this review if the KEF iQ90 and decided to add my thoughts on this wondrful speakers from KEF. Music Genre: Jazz, blues and some classicals. Pros: Good looking design. Like the curved cabinet. Functional too as the curved back minimize standing wave. Comes with plinth for stability.
Summary: I purchased my IQ90s at a bargain price as they were being replaced by the Q900. I had heard some KEFs at a local audio salon while actually shopping for another brand. I believe that first listen was to the IQ70s.
Summary: I purchased them about 5 month ago. The sound quality is not less than very expensive speakers. Especially, the sound resolution is outstanding. Very good for music as well as movies. I have massive JBL speakers weighs more than 150lbs each.
Summary: The sound quality is excellent. It comes with carpet of floor mount base plate which is plastic. Mounting bolts are good quality but a metal or glass base plate will add value. The speaker constrcution is good. The finish is not very high quality.
Summary: While researching speakers for a stereo music system I was putting together, I visited a store selling KEF speakers and really liked their sound. I was considering buying a pair of their smallest floor-standing speakers when I started looking online and found these at about half the price.
Summary: I purchased a set of KEF IQ90s in the Walnut about 6 months ago as part of a new 2-channel dedicated music system. The details: Peachtree Nova integrated amplifier; Wadia 170i transport (Apple Lossless and FLAC files); Thorens TD 160 turntable powered through an ART DJ Pre II Phono Amp.
Summary: I purchased a pair of the KEF iQ90 Floor Standing Speakers for my stereo. These speakers are incredible. The range is amazing. The bass is deep and the percussion and cellos of the London Symphony come to life in a way I have never heard before. The highs are outstanding too!
