KEF’s new Q

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - LIFESTYLE -

THE new line of “Q” speak­ers from KEF has landed, along with the life­style “T” se­ries.

The Q range goes back some way and has won the Bri­tish com­pany nu­mer­ous awards. The brief be­hind the Q is the us­age of new ma­te­ri­als and tech­nolo­gies to re­pro­duce high-end sound. The up­dated line-up prom­ises to be a quan­tum leap from yore; for one, we hear it has much bet­ter bass.

The heart of the sys­tem is a spank­ing new Uni-Q driver ar­ray, de­rived from KEF’s high­end Con­cept Blade project. This one has an ex­tended band­width with ef­fort­less dy­nam­ics, neg­li­gi­ble dis­tor­tion and out­stand­ing acous­tic clar­ity.

The new Qs come in a va­ri­ety of con­fig­u­ra­tions, in­clud­ing stand-mount and floor-stand­ing units, along with cen­tre and sub­woofer, and tar­get both au­dio­philes and home the­atre en­thu­si­asts.

The T Se­ries is de­signed to match panel TVs, and so stays flush with the screen. Size, how­ever, is no com­pro­mise for sound, and KEF says the T speak­ers will fill a room with “high-def­i­ni­tion 3D sound”.

These slim-pro­file speak­ers, we’re also told, have all the “in­tri­cacy, spa­cious­ness and dy­namic range of a high-end con­ven­tional de­sign”.
