KEF R3 Meta Performance Monitors
KEF, originally Kent Engineering & Foundry, has developed a wonderful stand mount speaker, with compelling clarity and presentation in a true 3-way design. The R3 shares many of the same technologies utilized in KEF's flagship Reference lines. The speaker's slick, angular design, coupled with well-engineered internal and driver components make the R3 a very special assembly at a very affordable price point. Pulling technological advances from their halo "Muon", "Blade", and "Reference" exotic speaker lines, the R3 is a mighty performer in a small package.
The patented KEF Uni-Q driver is the centerpiece of the design both functionally and visually. Every detail of this driver has been designed to extremely high standards for high output, low distortion, and wide dispersion. The R3 demonstrate a broad "sweet spot" to enhance the listening experience and extended low-end performance via the highly damped 5" compound magnet driver and long-throw 6.5" aluminum cone low frequency woofer. The coaxially-mounted tweeter with dispersion fins allows for pin-point imaging and high end brilliance. Everything about this speaker has been considered and optimized, including the R3's rear-facing port which allows the lowest frequencies to resonate as intended.
Of course, these speakers are offered in four different finishes to match many different types of decor: Gloss Black, Gloss White, Walnut/Bronze and Indigo/Red Special Edition.
They are an exceptional value and deliver on KEF's 60 year old promise of high fidelity and quality!
