KEF Reference 207/2

KEF 207/2

    Everything about KEF’s flagship loudspeaker is designed to make what you hear sound totally real. As the finest expression of all the latest KEF design breakthroughs, the sound quality, bandwidth and dynamics of these formidably accomplished floorstanders are second to none. Their technological sophistication makes the loudspeakers themselves seem to disappear: all you experience is the pure sensation of hearing the original sound source. The critics agree with Stereophile naming the 207/2 it’s 2008 Product of the Year!

    The KEF Uni-Q and three KEF designed ultra-low distortion bass drivers deliver the entire frequency range as a coherent, articulate sonic picture. The 207/2 uses two low-bass units and a dedicated midbass for maximum articulation and freedom from intermodulation distortion. The Reference Series crossovers are computer modelled to optimise driver integration and response accuracy, and then fine-tuned by ear to ensure naturalness and a musically rewarding listening experience.

    Precision engineered to eliminate every unwanted vibration, the cabinets are works of art in themselves. Massive internal bracing tailors the volume of each internal enclosure to the exact parameters of its drive unit. Extensive mechanical and acoustic damping, together with independent driver loading and KEF’s decoupling techniques, creates inert enclosures that eradicate any vestigial panel resonance, standing waves, stray reflections or box colorations.

    Price is per pair.

    KEF Reference 207/2 Features

    KEF’s latest Uni-Q® driver array is the most natural-sounding yet.

    Tweeter at the centre of the midrange cone has a vented three-magnet motor system and a unique new braced dome.

    Polypropylene capacitors and air-cored inductors and internal cabling chosen for its accurate, neutral sonic character.

    KEF engineers have succeeded in greatly reducing the distortions that affect moving coil drive units by adding twin, balanced, Faraday rings above and below the voice coil.

    Dedicated 10" Midbass driver prevents intermodulation from low bass pulses and allows the Uni-Q to operate with greater dynamics and power handling.

    Precision engineered cabinets to eliminate every unwanted vibration.

    Extensive mechanical and acoustic damping, with independent driver loading and KEF’s decoupling techniques.

    Piano Black, High Gloss American Walnut, High Gloss Cherry, Satin Black, Satin American Walnut, Satin Cherry and Satin Sycamore real wood veneers plus custom high gloss colors.
