Raymond Cooke (BBC inžinjer elektronike, tehnicki direktor Wharfedale-a) i poslovni saradnici, osnovali su kompaniju KEF Electronics Ltd., sa namerom da prave ino- vativne zvucnike koristeci najnovije mate-rijale i tehnologije. Osnovana je u Kentu 1961. godine, na imanju nekadašnje kompa-nije “Kent Inžinjerstva i Livnice (Kent Engineering and Foundary)” odakle je “KEF” i dobio ime.
Zahvaljujuci stalnom eksperimentisanju sa novim materijalima i tehnologijama KEF zvucnici su uvek imali fantasticna akusticna merenja i mogli su da reprodukuju snimke najbliže moguce originalnom zvuku u studiju ili nastupu uživo. Od pocetka, kao i danas, KEFova inovativnost i kvalitet su neosporni, tako da više od pola veka unazad audiofili širom sveta uživaju u ovim zvucnicima visokih perfomansi.
A perfectly balanced, seamlessly integrated high end 5.1 sub/sat system based on KEF’s new 4.25” Uni-Q driver array and a superlative matching subwoofer, the new E305 home theatre system outperforms the competition by filling the room with a spacious, exquisitely detailed and compellingly natural soundscape that captures all the magic of the original performance.
It takes more than a great driver to create a class-leading satellite speaker, and the E301 satellite was designed from the start as a single perfectly balanced system with the crossover, cabinet and drivers working together in harmony.
The E305 system is designed to deliver exceptional bass performance, with the sub seamlessly integrated within the rest of the system, so it sounds like five full-range loudspeakers. The frequency and phase response of the sub and satellites are carefully matched to smoothen the transition, so you can’t hear where the satellite stops and the sub starts.
With a large, powerful motor system driving a long throw 8-inch cone, low frequency reproduction remains composed and unerringly accurate, even at high volume. Based on a Linkwitz Transform circuit to minimise any signal group-delay that would otherwise muddy the bass, the on-board pre-amp assures noticeably cleaner and more accurate low frequency reproduction.
A closed-box design, the E-2 subwoofer delivers agile extended bass response without overhang - fast, punchy and well defined. Like the satellites, the cabinet borrows damping technologies from the LS50 to avoid resonance and secondary radiation to ensure tight, clean and immaculately controlled bass.
KEF’s award-winning original KEF KHT2005 and KHT3005 ‘egg’ system revolutionised home entertainment with its supremely accurate 3D sound from distinctive small speakers packed with unique technologies. Redesigned to take advantage of design innovations developed for KEF’s most sophisticated audiophile speakers, the all-new E305 system raises the bar even further – at a surprisingly affordable price. Available in deep black or pure white, the silky matt finish is complemented by satin chrome cast aluminium bases that simply rotate to form wall brackets. Beautifully engineered bespoke stands are also available to help positioning around the listening environment.
