Three-way stand mount

KEF REFERENCE 1's innovative technology means that you don't need a big cabinet to enjoy expansive, premium quality sound.

The KEF the REFERENCE 1 is a three-way high end loudspeaker in a cabinet that will fit in any room. It offers incredible insight into the recording alongside imaging that you have to hear to believe.

REFERENCE 1 pairs KEF’s latest 125mm (5 inch) MF/HF Uni-Q driver array with the sensational new 165mm (6.5 inch) alloy cone bass driver to create a compellingly realistic, large scale sound stage. Uni-Q’s inherently wide, even dispersion also makes it the perfect rear channel speaker in a serious home theatre system.

"With their gorgeous, drop-dead looks, exacting build standard and technological prowess the KEF Reference 1 loudspeakers are a rare but refreshing combination of beauty and brains.  They really do not have any weaknesses save that they are brutally honest in regards to source material and may not sound their best with poorer recordings.   Their superb resolution and extraordinary imaging will present the performance like no other stand mounter and will totally immerse their lucky owner into the music.  These certainly are a Reference by which others will be measured"
