KEF’s new C-Series may look like you’ve dumped your life-savings into a speaker set, but it keeps your piggy bank intact.
Promising “almost studio or concert-hall clarity and precision,” KEF’s C-Series provides excellent sound at a reasonable price. The new entries include:
- C7 Floorstander: $400 each
- C5 Floorstander: $325 each
- C3 Bookshelf: $300 per pair
- C1 Bookshelf: $240 per pair
- C6LCR Left/Centre/Right: $250 each
- C4 Subwoofer: $400 each
Boasting a two-layer front baffle system and the same 19mm ‘Tangerine’ waveguide that’s used on KEF’s iQ range, each unit has front firing ports, which allows a close-to-the-wall install. The C1 and C3 include mounting brackets as well.
Available in a black ash finish, each of the speakers will be available starting this month.
