Summary: Love my speakers, impressive sound for just a small speaker, clear miss so beautiful it just makes me want to stay listening to them, treble is really good too bass not that much but a balanced sound, I would buy another pair of this little ones
Summary: 2013 KEF Q100 Review A well-engineered speaker that presents a mixed bag, depending on your expectations. Firstly, these speakers require A LOT of warming in, a good 3 months of listening time was my experience before I felt they began to show their true capability. I found this out....that when new, they sound very harsh and grainy in the treble range, and the overall sound had a dark and uneven representation.
Summary: Great quality speakers. These replaced a pair of Audioengine P4's in my stereo setup. It's unfair to compare the two due to the obvious price difference but it's the only reference I have. Although I think the P4's are great speakers worth every penny, the highs can be a bit harsh and the lows less detailed. The Kef's on the other hand are smooth in all frequencies and very detailed sounding.
Summary: In a small room for easy listening, you could not do better. Great, crisp imaging of the music. My room is 12 x20, and I listen to rock a lot, so I have a Definitive Technology sub-woofer to enhance the base. NAD amplifier -- Pure DAC dock -- all mp3 downloaded in lossless 256 KBS format -- great sound. Similar to Paradigm Atom Monitor speakers, which go for $600 these days.
Summary: I've had these a few months and I have to say they are excellent. They are incredibly detailed with a very flat frequency response... Basically they are KEF's entry to their UNI-Q driver... And with these you are paying mostly for the driver. The finish looks like vinyl, but it's fine. I think they look nice. I took out the driver and the port terminals to have a look.
Truly amazing, even more amazing considering their size

Summary: These speakers put out some serious great sound. The bass is totally surprising coming out of these, and mids and highs are crystal clear. Totally comparable to B&W CM series at far less cost.
Summary: These little speakers simply sound great. Very clean midrange and more low-end than one would expect given their relatively diminutive size. They also support bi-amplification if that's important to you. The build quality is great.
Summary: Great sounding bookshelf speakers with stunning imaging and soundstage. Sound a lot larger than their cabinet size would suggest. A subwoofer is recommended although the speakers alone have a solid low end. Very high quality construction with bi-amp bi-wire hookup options. The cabinet finish is not high quality real wood but just OK. I use four of these with the KEF Q200 Center Channel and Definitive SuperCube 1 and couldn't be happier.
