KEF's new R-Series!

R3 redefines standmount performance. That's no surprise, as it shares the same drivers as the range-topping R11. A true three-way speaker, the 165mm (6 in.) bass driver pushes bass performance to new extremes. The 125mm (5 in.) midrange driver and 25mm (1 in.) aluminium dome tweeter create a Uni-Q array that defies the expectations from the most compact main speaker in the range.

Uni-Q Driver Array

Developed by KEF in 1988, the Uni-Q driver array acts as a single point source, providing pristine sound across a wider area. The R Series benefits from a new incarnation of this driver array, with advantages over its predecessors that include a new midrange motor system that drastically reduces distortion.

Air moving across the minute gaps between Uni-Q’s separate elements creates tiny resonances, but KEF engineers have reduced the impact of these necessary gaps by opening a cavity behind the drivers and adding resonance-absorbing damping material for more precise, purer treble.

    

Shadow Flare

Derived from the Reference Series, the Shadow Flare reduces harmful cabinet diffraction and allows the Uni-Q to work at its highest level.

More than just a trim ring, Shadow flare is a precision-designed surface that extends the waveguide effect of Uni-Q. The tweeter no longer has line of sight of the cabinet edges, creating a ‘shadow region’ at the points where the potential for diffraction is highest, minimising the acoustic impact to negligible levels.

The result is improved clarity, particularly when it comes to the subtle nuances of plucked strings and percussive sounds.

Low Frequency Drivers

The R Series’ dedicated low-frequency drivers have a two-part structure, where a shallow concave aluminium skin sits atop a paper cone. This adds stiffness, while the cone’s unique geometry reduces resonances and delivers the pistonic movement that makes these drivers time so well.

The new drivers also have a completely redesigned magnet system that creates a more even magnetic field, and a design of spider that reduces harmonic distortion for a cleaner, more precise sound.

  

Cabinet Bracing

The R Series benefits from Constrained Layer Damping bracing originally developed for the multiple award-winning LS50, and a new internal bracing layout. This combination brings the R Series closer to the internal structure of the Reference Series, and helps it deliver music as it is supposed to sound, without any unwanted extras.

Flexible Port Technology

KEF engineers computer-modeled the ideal crossover networks before exhaustively auditioning every high grade component, individually and together, to select those with the lowest distortion and the smoothest response. Perfectionism takes time, but the difference is plain to hear. Nothing is overlooked - Reference crossovers are even mounted on separate boards and decoupled from the cabinet walls to minimize vibration and crosstalk.

Black Speaker Cable

“Tellurium Q Black was first cable and we knew we were on to something special when we took the prototypes to various dealers for their comments and input. One in particular would not believe that it could match his somewhat thicker more expensive cable that was in his demonstration system.

We sat down and listened to some of his familiar music tracks. Then we swapped the cable for Tellurium Black. He sat forward, looked at us and quite seriously asked what else we had done to his system while we were changing the cables over. It was only when he swapped the cables himself a couple of times did he believe the evidence of his ears. He also stocked the Tellurium Black”

Adding a fixed data point will improve the performance of your system, so allow our in house team of specialists to install one for you! Contact us for more details. Made in Salisbury, U.K. 🇬🇧

KEF's new R-Series!

The R7 is the midsized floorstanding member of the new R Series. Featuring two 165mm (6 in.) hybrid aluminium bass drivers and a Uni-Q combining a 125mm (5 in.) midrange driver and 25mm (1 in.) aluminium dome tweeter, R7 outperforms all expectations. Equally at home with music or film, R7 proves to be just as flexible as the rest of the R Series range.
