KEF q series:
entry to high-end audio
KEF q series
price range: $299.99 /each – 1,099.99 /each
The Q Series is your entry into the KEF family and you will enjoy the Uni-Q driver which KEF uses throughout its lineup, all the way to the jaw-dropping KEF Blades at $33,000 pair. While the tweeters vary in material choices and details, the KEF Uni-Q drivers, an integrated tweeter and midrange driver, is a design that KEF has been refining for over 45 years.
The Uni-Q is a design approach of to create a true “point source.” A point source is type of speaker that features the sound originating from a single point, or source, not multiple points, such as with multiple drivers of midranges and tweeters. The Uni-Q driver array places the tweeter in the center of the midrange and bass cone, bringing the acoustic ideal of a single point source to reality. The acoustic benefit is a more accurate three-dimensional sound that’s dispersed evenly throughout the room.
The entire range of Q Series are all built around the Uni-Q driver using three driver sizes. The Q950 uses the largest Uni-Q at 8″, Q750 uses the 6.5″ Uni-Q, and the Q550 uses the 5.5″ Uni-Q. The smaller brother bookshelf speakers, the Q350 uses the 6.5″ Uni-Q and the Q150 uses 5.25″ Uni-Q. On the Q650 center speaker and Atmos surround speakers, both use the 6.5″ Uni-Q .
8″ Uni-Q: Q950
6.5″ Uni-Q: Q750 tower, Q350 Bookshelf, Q650 Center
5.25″ Uni-Q: Q150 bookshelf, Q250 Center, Q50 Atmos Surround
The Q Series features bookshelf and tower speakers with an emphasis on performance and price. Available in black, white and walnut, the Q Series offers an attractive lineup with designs that can be used for stereo or home theater. The Q Series offers the buyer a wide range of speakers, all sharing the same design of driver, with the ability to integrate them acoustically into their home audio or home theater solution, as it fits their project and budget.
Regardless of the design and technology, just come and listen to these speakers and hear what well-designed and engineered modern speakers can deliver for $600 to $2,000 a pair. Couple them with an Anthem, Arcam or Cambridge Audio amplifier and you just picked up two tickets to high-end audio.
FINISHES AVAILABLE: Black, White and Walnut
KEF has significant credibility in designing and engineering speakers. The KEF Blades, are arguably one of the finest speakers in the world, retailing in our showroom for $34,998/pair and demonstrate the commitment to the Uni-Q driver as a cornerstone of KEF technology. The Q Series leverages all the technology and advanced engineering of the KEF Blades, into a speaker line that starts at less than $600. Are the same driver – no! Are they based on the design and engineering principles – yes!
The KEF Q Series is a welcome beneficiary of trickle-down R& D from the (significantly) more expensive KEF Series and because of it, the resulting value/performance is outstanding. Come by and compare the Q Series with the KEF LS Series, KEF Reference Series or the amazing KEF Blades and note the acoustic family traits: detail, wide dispersion, frequency balance, soundstage etc.. across all product series and budgets.
The Q Series is the entry point with one of the premier manufacturers in the world – KEF.
The Q Series is where KEF begins. The Q Series shows just how much sound a manufacturer can deliver on such a modest budget. There are many definitions of high end audio, but for many of us, it is the point at which recordings melt away to believability. The perception that you’re listening to recorded music disappears, leaving you focusing on the individual instruments, the rhythm and melody of the music and hopefully an emotional connection that is truly satisfying.
High end audio is about arriving at a place where the sound system disappears – and the music in your room – begins. The KEF Q Series is a great entry point to high end audio.
“The speakers are ultra detailed, especially for a pair in this price range. Sure, you could spend a lot more for a little extra clarity, but most will love the amount of clarity already on offer here. “
