Uni-Q Driver Array: The KEF EGG is based on KEF's patented Uni-Q
driver configuration, in which the tweeter is mounted at the acoustic center of
the midrange cone. With both acting as a single point source, the sound is
dispersed widely and evenly throughout the listening area allowing you to
experience superbly defined and perfectly balanced stereo imagery. The Uni-Q
driver array is made up of a 0.75" aluminum dome tweeter and a 4.25" aluminum
- 0.75" Tweeter: The 0.75" aluminum dome tweeter
incorporates an optimized dome shape, a tangerine waveguide, and an internal
vent for outstanding high frequency performance.
- Optimized Dome Shape: The geometry of the tweeter dome matches
that of the midrange cone to avoid disrupting the waveform. By smoothening
high frequency response, this helps to account for the detailed and
strikingly natural-sounding treble.
- Tangerine Waveguide: The segmented waveguide encourages the sound
to radiate spherically for wider, more even dispersion so that everyone in
the room enjoys the same superb sound quality.
- Internal Vent: A large internal vent prevents
potentially distorting high pressures from building up behind the dome in
the critical vocal region, preserving all the nuance and fine detail of the
- 4.25" Midrange: The 4.25" midrange utilizes an aluminum
cone with a damping ring and Z-flex surround for excellent midrange detail
- Aluminum Woofer Cone: Being stiffer than conventional materials, the
aluminum midrange cone maintains its rigidity to ensure smoother, clear
response. The difference is especially noticeable in vocals, with every
detail faithfully reproduced.
- Damping Ring: Midrange response is exceptionally fluid and
transparent because the driver incorporates a damping ring to eliminate the
breakup modes that otherwise give the midrange a hard edge.
- Z-Flex Surround: A well as allowing the midrange cone its full
extension, KEF's ingenious Z-flex surround guides the sound from the tweeter
across the surround without any disturbance or secondary radiation. Treble
response is clearer and sweeter.
Bass Reflex Cabinet: The KEF EGG features a bass reflex
cabinet with a front-firing port for greater efficiency and bigger bass
Twin Class D Amplifier: The KEF EGG employs a Twin Class D
50W amplifier to independently drive the tweeter and woofer for exceptional
sound quality and very low distortion at any volume level.
High Performance DAC: The KEF EGG utilizes a high performance
24-bit/96kHz DAC for music that sounds rich, natural, an detailed - just the way
the artist intended.
Bluetooth 4.0 w/ aptX: With its built-in Bluetooth (version
4.0), you are able to wirelessly stream stored music and music apps from your
Bluetooth-enabled Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Windows
Phone/PC, Mac computer/laptop and other Bluetooth source devices to the KEF EGG
speaker. You'll still need to control music playback and view song/artist info
from your Bluetooth source device.
- aptX: In addition to support the standard Bluetooth SBC
codec, the KEF EGG offers support for aptX. With aptX, you can stream
CD-quality sound from aptX compatible devices (like Android OS 4.0+). Now
your wireless music sounds rich, full, and natural with less compression.
- SSP: With SSP (Simple Secure Pairing), Bluetooth source
devices can be paired with a single press of a button and without entering
PIN code. Only one device can be paired and played back at a time with the
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some
Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may
not support all features when used with the KEF EGG.
miniUSB Port: Via the KEF EGG's miniUSB port you can enjoy lossless
high resolution sound from your Windows PC or Mac computer's music library. a 5' miniUSB-to-USB
cable is supplied to make connection between the EGG and your computer. The EGG
supports music files up to 24-bit/96kHz.
Analog/Digital Combo Minijack: The EGG is outfitted with a
analog/digital combo minijack (3.5mm) that will accept analog and 2ch PCM
digital audio signals, up to 24-bit/96kHz (does not support Dolby Digital/DTS). The combo-jack to connect a
portable audio device with a headphone jack, or use it to connect the EGG to
your TV's optical digital output. A 58" optical-to-minijack toslink cable is
Remote Control: The included IR remote offers wireless control of the
KEF EGG, as well as your connected Windows PC or Mac computer. The remote
provides Power On/Off, Source Select, Volume Up/Down, & Mute for the KEF EGG
speaker (these same controls are also found on the "Right" speaker). It also provides Play/Pause and Previous/Next Track control for music
playback from your connected computer.
Sub Out: The KEF EGG is fitted with a minijack (3.5mm) subwoofer
output for connecting an external powered subwoofer.
Tethered Cable: The speakers are labeled "L" (left) and "R" (right).
The "Right" speaker contains the AC power port, the miniUSB port, the
combo-jack, the sub out, and tethered speaker port. The "Left" speaker features
an attached 6.5' cable which connects the two speakers together; it plugs into
the "Right" speaker's tethered speaker port.
AC Power Adapter: The KEF EGG is powered by standard household current
using the supplied AC power adapter and AC power cord.
