Excerpt: UPDATE 7/11/09: Price now reduced to £1100 Despite what the picture might suggest, we're not re-running our review of the Award-winning KEF KHT3005SE speaker package. It is, in fact, the new KHT3005SE-W package. And what does the 'W' stand for? Wireless.
Pros: All the benefits of a wireless subwoofer without sonic sacrifice, remains open, integrated and detailed, smart looks
Cons: Higher prices and new rivals mean it', s no longer top-dog
Excerpt: This has been a favourite system of ours for years, and we can understand why KEF might have thought the '3005SE could remain so at £1200. It might have, too, were it not for the arrival of the B&W MT-25 . With £246 between them, the choice was fairly straightforward. Now the KEFs are down to £1000, it's anything but.
Pros: Yamaha DSP-AX763, A seamless surround field combined with a direct and focused centre channel, deep, refined, weighty and powerful sound will fill even large rooms
Cons: Yamaha DSP-AX763, Occasional touch of tubbiness to the bass, not quite as fast or agile as the B&, W MT-25s
Excerpt: In these difficult financial times, KEF is re-positioning its style speaker systems. You can read the full details in our news story , but basically the firm is introducing more affordable versions of same of its best-selling speaker packages such as the Award-winning KHT3005SE . What we have here is the excellent 3005 satellites partnered with the more affordable KUBE-2 subwoofer – hence this new package, the KHT3005SE-K2 at £1000.
Pros: Great mix of surround sound dispersion and centre-channel focus, great build and styling, fine detail, weight and dynamics
Cons: Subwoofer doesn’t integrate with the sats as well as the B&, W MT-25
Excerpt: Im kompakten Heimkinoset KHT 3005 SE setzen die englischen Lautsprecher-Experten von Kef fünf Satelliten und einen Subwoofer mit pfiffiger Form ein. Alle Satelliten verfügen über Koaxialtreiber mit Uni-Q Technologie, die Kef bereits 1988 entwickelte und für die zeitrichtige Schallabstrahlung sorgen. Als Extra bietet der Hersteller das universelle Drahtlos-Set SP 3752 mit digitaler Funkübertragung.
Summary: Kef KHT3005SE er testet før med godt resultat. Nå er anlegget tilgjengelig i en ”Purist Edition”, som betyr høyglans hvit utførelse. Systemet gjør film- og musikkopplevelsene til en ren nytelse. Men gi høyttalerne bra med forsterkerkraft, det fortjener de.
