KEF R800ds Surround/Dipole

If you're serious about home theatre, the KEF R800ds provides exceptional surround capabilities. The twin 5-inch Uni-Q driver arrays work out of phase to create a remarkable, hard to localise sound field. This results in stunning dynamic sonic effects from the KEF R800ds that help put you at the heart of the action.

Amazingly fast and clean mid-range response. Startlingly pure high frequencies. All operating as a single perfectly integrated voice to deliver sweet, accurate sounds of unprecedented clarity. 

The new Uni-Q driver array is nothing short of a masterpiece. 

Unlike conventional speakers, the mid-range cones are rigid magnesium/aluminum constructions that reduce breakup problems. The new mid-range Z-flex surround smoothes the tweeter transition to the front baffle, which results in undistorted high frequencies. 

Large voice coils increase power handling and dynamics, reducing distortion and delivering exceptional vocal clarity. 

Venting the tweeters reduces pressure behind the dome, increasing midrange bandwidth and lowering distortion. Upper registers are articulated with flawless precision. KEF’s tangerine waveguide helps disperse higher frequencies evenly across a wider angle to flood the room with a sophisticated, refreshingly natural sound field. 

Dynamic, uncompressed and undistorted bass of heart pounding clarity envelops you, striking deep emotional chords. Your soul will awaken. And the earth will move. 

Designed from the ground up, the R series is a towering leap forward that creates a new dimension in sonic authenticity. 

The geometry and bracing of the enclosure optimises vibrational behavior, reducing secondary radiation from cabinet walls for a cleaner sound. Damping panels further minimize cabinet resonance and colouration. 

Front baffles are clean with no visible screws. Grilles are fixed magnetically. Available in real Walnut and Rosewood veneers, or highly polished Piano Black, the R Series complements the home as much as it respects the music. 

The R Series presents the high-end technologies of KEF BLADE in a timeless, elegant format. Serious audiophiles can now enjoy phenomenally accurate reproduction that neither adds nor subtracts from the original recording. Indulge in a near THE REFERENCE experience at a price that will also be music to your ears. 

Refined, spacious and exquisitely detailed, you won't just hear music the way it was intended it to be. you'll live it, feel it and love it.
