- Large voice coils increase power handling and dynamics, reducing distortion and delivering exceptional vocal clarity.
- Front baffles are clean with no visible screws. Grilles are fixed magnetically.
- The R Series presents the high-end technologies of KEF Blade in a timeless, elegant format. Serious audiophiles can now enjoy phenomenally accurate reproduction that neither adds nor subtracts from the original recording.
Benefits of KEF R800 Dipole Speakers:
Operating as single integrated voice to deliver sounds with unprecedented clarity, the R800 is nothing short of a masterpiece. It is fitted with a Uni-Q driver array that helps deliver accurate acoustics. Unlike conventional speakers that feature mid-range cones made of magnesium/aluminum that reduce breakup problems, the R800 features lightweight yet sturdy vented tweeters that help it deliver precision-quality sound.
The speakers are fitted with a mid-range Z-flex surround which can lead to smoother tweeter transition resulting in undistorted high frequencies. These vented tweeters reduce pressure behind the dome and increase mid-range bandwidth. What’s more? KEF’s tangerine waveguide helps disperse higher frequencies evenly across a wider angle - so all you hear is refreshingly natural, life-like sound.
The lightweight and strong hybrid cones are supported by large aluminium coils and a vented magnet which ensures that the bass output is faster and cleaner. The R800 is also fitted with satin anodised elements and a trim ring which adds to its sophisticated look and enhanced style, not to mention its amazing sound.
They say a little finesse goes a long way to delivering a big impact and the R800 is literal proof of how attention to detail can deliver such amazing results. Right from the adjustable die cast aluminium feet that support steel spikes to integrated locking knobs that can be easily adjusted - the R Series have been designed to make the little things matter.
Additionally, the nickel plated bi-wire connectors with terminal linking control allow all standard connections and the geometry of the reflex ports has been tuned to minimize turbulence and distortion even at high levels. So what you hear is reduced port noise and great quality sound.
The R Series wrap up the high-end technologies of the KEF blade in a neat little bow. With the R 800 delivering an accurate reproduction of sound that neither adds or subtracts from the original sound, this speaker is a treat for audiophiles. The best bit? You get to indulge in an experience almost as near THE REFERENCE but at a price that will certainly not cut a hole in your pocket.
