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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: These speakers are absolutely killer, offering exceptional performance for the money. Speakers are highly subjective, however, so I would encourage comparing these to others within your price budget.
