Great bang for buck

CS, Amazon
15 April 2014
  • Summary: The KEFs 900s are an amazing speaker. I demo'd three others before I settled on them. In fact, I like the KEF sound so much, I bought the KEF R700s. I should have gotten the R900s, but they are 5k and out of my price range. The R's are very nice, more refined in their sound, but don't go as low. I will upgrade to the R900s when I get a change. Before the Q900s I had the PSB Imagine Ts from Crutchfield. Great high end, very nice speaker.

Wonderful speakers at a reasonable price

  • Summary: I have been looking for some time to upgrade my Snell speakers, a wonderful speaker company that I think is no longer in business. These new KEF speakers are wonderful and for a price less than a car. There is a real clarity in their response, nothing ``muddy'' in the sound. I listen to rock and jazz and also use them as part of my surround sound system.

impressive and unexpected

Ricardo Calcano "Ricardo", Amazon
15 October 2013
  • 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

James L. Young, Amazon
21 May 2012
  • 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...

User Review

rmoser a AudioPhile, Audio Review
21 March 2012
  • 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

Timothy Darling, Amazon
16 March 2012
  • 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.

Simple Awesome - great value for money

S. Narang, Amazon
12 February 2012
  • 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.

Giant Killers

Mr. P, Amazon
17 January 2012
  • 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.
