Summary: I hate everything that is designed in England. Nothing is normal about them. Nothing is universal about them. Designed in England, built in China. These speakers have an Egg shaped feel to them. It doesn't fit on any of my stands. They fall easily on the shelf. They don't balance the weight. Extremely hard to mount on the wall and wire at the same time.
Summary: I take advantage of Gold Box deals quite often. And discounts on subwoofers can be found frequently. But even though I have more subs than I need, when this KEF went on sale, I decided to buy one. I took a chance that the quality I was used to still existed with this brand. I was not disappointed. It's hard to believe that the drivers are only 8". The bass is deep and tight. It's quite attractive, and is nice and heavy, so stays put.
Summary: Well designed quality product that reaches down to reasonably deep bass frequencies in an attractive compact package. I appreciated the controls available on the rear of the unit to customize the sound for your specific system and environment. Though not mentioned in the product description, the unit automatically goes into sleep mode (the red power light turns green) when there is no signal for about 15 minutes.
Summary: The panel houses an adjustable crossover, phase switch, subwoofer volume control and power switch. There are two inputs from left and right or combine the two with the adapter provided. It's softly rounded cabinet and nicely finished in black. It's small enough to hide behind furniture or tuck into a corner. It provides very impressive deep and clear bass. It's a great buy for $250.
Summary: I am not an audiophile but when it comes to sound, my ears are sensitive. I am comparing this with any other mid-level satellite system. For the price you can't go wrong with this. Clarity is a top notch and sub-woofer is surprisingly good (tweak it to make it even better). I like the glossy design, the shape is unique but if you paired them with a thin metal stand, it looks elegant.
