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
The R500 is the smallest floorstanding loudspeaker model in KEF's renowned R series. Utilising the same latest version of the specially developed Uni-Q driver array found with all models in KEF's R Series, the R500 matches with other models in the range to form the ultimate AV surround-sound home cinema system. In conjunction with the Uni-Q driver array, two 5.25-inch aluminium bass drivers act in unison to form a solid, rich and filling sound in both home cinema and in two-channel hifi applications.
