You can thumb your nose at pre-packaged systems all you want; we’re just going to crank up KEF’s KHT1005.2

I hate using the word “sexy” when it comes to electronics, but in this case, I am going to have to let myself slide. This funky looking set comes with five little alien-like speakers and the KUBE-1 subwoofer.

Based on their Home Theater 1000 Series, this set features the latest and greatest generation of KEF’s Uni-Q drivers, which boast “aerospace material.” Not sure what that gets you besides bragging rights, but we’re heard KEF systems before—and we will happily hear them again.

Standing at 11.5 x 11.5 x 11.5, other specs include a frequency range of 100Hz to 30kHz and a sensitivity rating of 86dB. The KUBE-1 also boasts a 150-watt class D amp and an 8-inch driver.

Available in a high-gloss black finish, the KHT1005.2 system is available now for $800.
