Summary: For this price you will not find a more pleasing speaker after a good 100 hour break in soundstage can even handle full orchestra & mid-range is superb in vocal tracks also bass with front firing port is very good only a slight hesitancy in high range but partnered with a good amp and some room to breath these little babes shine giving you a tremendous bang for your buck !
Summary: I'm not an audiophile but I do really enjoy these speakers. I think they have a real warmth to them especially with vocals but also for their size have good base performance as well. I purchased them to replace a 15 year old pair of KEF bookend speakers that had been damaged by one two many moves. If asked by a friend I'd say they aren't the cheapest but I do really like them.
Compared to Paradigm Studio 20 and Rogers Sound Sound Lab CG4's
7 November 2011
Summary: I auditioned the Paradigm Studio 10's and 20's ($1400/pair) and the KEF Q300 ($629/pair) and the Rogers Sound Lab CG4's ($500/pair). I like the sound of the Paradigm 20's the most, but the KEF's have the best imaging hands down. Instruments appear in 3D space left, right and between the speakers. There was an annoying sharpness to the treble with the KEFs until after about 120 hours of use and that went away and the sound stage became even more solid.
Summary: I was looking for a pair of bookshelf speakers in the $500-700 range and narrowed my search down to the Monitor Audio Silver RX-1 and KEF Q300, which I found based on the review from "What? Hi Fi." I decided to take a chance on the KEF due to it's uni-Q driver, larger size, and weight. I burned the speakers in for approximately 60 hours before any critical listening and I am driving them with a 125 watt/channel Parasound New Classic 2125.
Summary: The first thing I noticed about the new Q Series, opening the box, was that unlike KEF speakers I bought a few years ago the Q300s were not nicely wrapped in a cotton bag like a pair of expensive Italian shoes. I also noticed the wood used for this speaker is of lower quality compared to e.g. the IQ series, and instead of a curved shape like most KEFs the speaker is a rectangular box. All this suggests that a 'value for money' philosophy was applied to this range.
Summary: Bought these to deal with a location issue in my livingroom about 6 months ago. Their imaging is absolutely first rate...honestly better than the very much more expensive and sizable DynaAudio towers they replaced and DCM's prior to those. They offer big sound in a small package. Sound quality is terrific with one exception....the treble/high end can get a bit too pronounced and a bit splashy. Still for the money and considering their size...they are an absolute steal.
Summary: Speakers are really excellent for that price, I did audition with different brand and found that this one is the best in that price range, for me it is better than B&W 685. The base is quite strong for that size bookshelf speaker. I purchase it from OneCall and I am very happy with there prices and service. I strongly recommend to by from OneCall, there service is the best.
Summary: After being fully broken in, it sounds warm, tonally correct and a bit distant in presentation. Purchased based on What Hi Fi giving 5 stars as seen on Kef website and limited online reviews found with favorable sentiment. Not hyper detailed, excellent sound stage and not fatiguing. Bass is decent for size and no sub is needed music in small to medium rooms.
Summary: richer sounds (Bristol) recommended these speakers when I talked to them about changing my PC sound set up from PC to PC speakers to separates. I did compare them to floor speakers (costing about the same price) and whilst I thought the floor speakers were warmer in sound I stuck with these as they were clearer, crisper and of better quality. (You get what you pay for) I am delighted that I did.
Summary: Die Spannung stieg an vom Auspacken, Aufstellen, Anschließen und: nach den ersten Musikstücken war die Entspannung und Freude groß. Ich probiere unterschiedliche Genres aus und werde mir ein Bild (bei Lautsprechern?) machen. Der erste Eindruck war überraschend gut und nachhaltig. Die Boxen wurden mir von HiFi - Regler zu einer HiFi-Kompaktanlage (marantz Melody 601) empfohlen - ich bereue nichts.
