Amazing speaker. Bass digs down pretty low and had to put in the port plugs due to how close I had to put them to the wall. Given a good source these sound fantastic. Given a mediocre source these speakers will expose the inferior quality.

Pros:

Crutchfield customer from Philadelphia, PA on 2/13/2021

Amazing soundstage and dynamics. Bass response can use a little help from a sub. Build quality is first rate, but there are issues with quality control. One speaker is flawless, the other has issues with the gloss paint (milky/cloudy appearance in certain spots under LED illumination), and some glue residue near the shadow flare.

Pros: Soundstage, center image, build quality.

Cons: Quality control.

Relistic beauty

I got these with the Arcam SA10. Even from the first power on, I knew this was a good match. I have a set of Dynaudio's Evoke 20. The sound of the Kef is quite different. The bass is authoritative without being punchy. These speakers do disappear despite what some reviews say. Maybe it is the amp or my room. But you never want to look for them they are just there. The mids are amazing, almost articulate. Play Nora Jones and the brass is right up to your face but not in a bad way. Play Sarah Mclachlan and the sound stage opens up. These are not cheap. but technically it's a three way system and when played with a good recording you can tell. Play a bad recording and the sound is compressed and reveling. Not much coloration. You will hear what you're playing. I tried these on a older Anthem and yes a bit different from the Arcam. The one thing that did remain is the vocals and mids. You will really hear the singer. Playing John Mayer and you can here his quite tones with grace and presents. Beck's Morning Phase becomes powerful and vocal. I prefer the Arcam but with anything you have to use what you have or get what you like. For the Money I made the right choose, I would suggest these speakers. The looks are top notch. The white are gorgeous in both visual and sound.

Pros: Sound, Looks Present of the stage. Crutchfield delivery is awesome.

Cons: The stand are pricey. But maybe a necessary evil.
