KEF's R series features many of the prestigious speaker company's latest and most impressive innovation in premium high fidelity audio and home theatre loudspeaker technology. The R series takes authentic audiophile quality standards and brings them to a much more affordable price range. The range utilises KEF's latest Uni-Q driver array, combined with newly developed bass drivers and enhanced components throughout. This results in a wide and vast stereo image, complete with flawless accuracy that many reference level speakers from lesser brands are unable to achieve.
With the all new three-way KEF 125mm diameter Uni-Q driver set-up handling high and midrange frequencies, plus a 170mm diameter low frequency bass driver , the R300 offers a hugely captivating sound but complete control at the same time. The KEF R300 speakers deliver everything you'd want from a standmount range speaker and more. With a stylish simple design, a beautifully clean mid-range response & tight low end frequencies the R300 provides a dynamic sound which few other speakers manage at the price.
The aluminium construction tangerine waveguide provides a virtual point souce for high and midrange sounds, enabling this loudspeaker to present a stereo image of great width, depth and heigh, placing each musician firmly in space on the stage.
Measuring a diminutive 385mm high by 210mm wide and 310mm deep, the R 300 is easily placed on speaker stands in most listening environments, whilst it's power handling is suitable for amplifiers in the range of 25W to 125W output power.
The front baffle of the R300 is very non-resonant, as can be shown by wrapping your knuckles against it's surface - all you hear is a low, tight, damped thud - this allows the driver to reproduce music with out unwanted colouration. There are no speaker grille fixings visible to detract from the simple, elegant design of the speaker, allowing you the listener to focus purely on it's highly accomplished musical performance.
With an efficiency of 88dB per watt, the R300 is moderately sensitive for a monitor type loudspeaker, and it's eight ohm impedance will be an easy drive for any modern valve or transistor amplifier.
Each R300 speaker is very solidly constructed, and hefty at 12kg each - we recommend you couple the speaker to your chosen speaker stand top plate with three generous blobs of blu-tack. Bi-wiring or single wiring is possible via the rear panel terminal plate, and KEF have cleverly engineered a linking system between the HF+/ LF+ and HF-/ LF- terminals without need for the normal brass linking strips - instead there are two rotary controls that link red terminals and blck terminals, making for a much neater and convenient installation. Good quality five-way 4mm binding posts on the rear allow for a sturdy and reliable amplifier connection. We would personally recommend Chord Odyssey 2 speaker cable as a bare minimum quality standard for this revealing loudspeaker design.
Two gorgeous real wood finishes are available (walnut and rosewood), or for the more contemporary environment, piano gloss white or gloss black are on offer - either way, coupled with a good quality pair of speaker stands (500-600mm tall would be ideal) the R300's will bring out the best in your hi-fi system.
