Summary: These speakers are incredibly good, produce a very well balanced sound, a deep soundstage with crystal clear voices and exceptional precise bass that punches with authority. I have heard them for hours with all kind of music and do not produce any ear fatigue, on the contrary, you beg for more music. The sensitivity is very high,, so you won't need a big amp to move these speakers. Any regular 50-100 watts amp will give you the sound of a very much more expensive system.

speakers so good your urge to upgrade will disappear

Summary: My Kef Q900 speakers shipped all the way to hawaii, $145 shipping EACH from another site (a4l) and they arrived in perfect shape. But I agree there's less foam in the box than there were in my $420 bic acoustech pl79 speakers that I upgraded to the Kefs from. But these speakers are truly great, I just got into home theatre and went from onkyo home theatre in a box speakers to pioneer SP-FS51-LR speakers, to bic acoustech pl79 to kef q900, with greater costs each time and...
Summary: I decided to hear the Q900 after the John Atkinson´s Stereophile review. The magazine´s editor said that Q900 is the best speaker under $2000 ever made. I listened the Q900 for 2 weeks in my system and I agree with the Stereophile´s veredict. These Kefs not give us the sweetness of (around $2000) B&W´s mids, neither the (around $2000) Dynaudio´s smooth punch or the Thiel´s resolution.
KEF Q900 Offer best in class sound at twice the price

Summary: I have used a wide range of speakers in the past including Quad, B&W, and Infinity. The KEF Q900 offer me a listening experience that I am really excited about. I have a long room that is not that wide. I was able to set the speakers up so I get excellent imaging and very tight bass response and musical accuracy. The rest of my system is a Linn Sondek turntable, LFD amplifier and Rotel CD player. Mid to Hi Fi.
Summary: I have spent a lot of time with quality speakers and find that these are simply the best undert $2000 a pair speakers. I did not think they were as good as the B&W 804s, but then you would need to spend 3 times for the B&Ws. I found them cleaner than the B&W 704s though. Make sure you do due deligence with audyssey and it is a good idea to biamp these if you have one of the mainstream receivers like the onkyo tx nr5008.
Summary: These speakers are absolutely killer, offering exceptional performance for the money. While $1798 is not chump change, especially in today's tumultuous economic environment, these speakers offer tremendous value for the money. Featuring a fairly large cabinet with four 8" active and passive drivers, these speakers move a lot of air with dynamic sound filled with excellent speed and articulation.
Summary: ONE OF THE WORST COMPANIES I HAVE DEALT WITH!!! I wish KEF understands that customer service is one the most important feature that buyers look for when it comes to spending $1000 on a single speaker. Even though some dealers initially offer free shipping nationwide, U cannot simply shop for KEF - it has to be done through a local dealer. At this point you are stuck with a terrible customer service, high price and ignorance.
Summary: I had been listening for several years to replace my Heco Mythos 500 (German) speakers. These speakers had set prices of 4000 to 5000 Euros. None of them convinced me to make the investment as the difference between my Heco speakers and the candidates was not large enough. I eventually ended up with these Q900's. Please note that I am a SACD fan and that I use 5 identical speakers. This makes it very worthwile to search a little bit longer. I got 5 Q900"s for 3000 Euros.
