The all new KEF R Series range starts with the Multi-Award winning R3 standmount and goes all the way to the R11 flagship floorstander. Re-designed from the ground up with trickle down technology from the KEF Reference range and KEF Blade. With an all new Uni-Q drive unit encorporating the Shadow Flare transition surface, the new R3, R5, R7 and R11 are all big improvements over the previous R100, R300, R500, R700 and R900 they replace. Fine detail is improved, as is Bass and most importantly, a big open soundstage is present in all models.
Add in 3 stylish finishes and you have a stunning speaker capable of delivering music at a level the price point has not heard before.
KEF engineers do not believe in compromise. The svelte styling of R5 contains the same Uni-Q as its bigger brothers, with a 125mm (5in.) midrange driver and 25mm (1 in.) aluminium dome tweeter producing incredible levels of detail. The slightly smaller 130mm (5.25 in) bass drivers still produce exceptionally clean bass, whilst being easily placed in a smaller room, or as surround speakers as part of an ultimate home theatre system.
Once again thanks for your help. I first visited Bartletts in 1993 and bought the Audiolab 8000a to equalise and compete with whatever the neighbours were playing at the time through the very thin walls of a Victorian Mansion Block. My Quad at the time although could musically could not compete. I had bought the Quad in 1984 at a place in Camden by Mornington Crescent, although I felt that I bought what" that particular shop "wanted to sell me rather than what I wanted.
Firstly delivery was estimated at 7-11 days - it was actually delivered by courier the next day (Free). Item was an excellent price and although it was advertised as used - it was absolutely mint. This is what internet buying should be like - well done all at Bartletts!
If I could give Bartlett's 10 stars I would....Quite superb service (a special mention for Simon here) - Buy from this supplier with complete confidence.
