The KEF REFERENCE 1 bookshelf loudspeaker isn’t made by the hundreds, without so much as a second thought to quality. It all starts in our laboratories in the UK, where our virtuoso engineers meticulously measure, tune, and compare your REFERENCE 1 to an objectively perfectly crafted reference speaker.
This means making sure the Uni-Q driver array replicates high and mid frequencies without a single flaw, and the bass driver produces an undistorted, powerful low end. Down to the hardwood finish of your choosing, every aspect of your REFERENCE 1 is handmade and carefully looked after from start to finish.
The end result is a speaker which commands a magisterial presence over its competitors, in both sound quality and style. At the heart of the REFERENCE 1 our Uni-Q point source MF/HF driver array. With a state-of-the-art 1 inch vented aluminium dome tweeter at the exact acoustic center of a highly sophisticated 5 inch mid range driver, both act together as a single source that evenly floods the listening space with a flawless natural sound no matter where you sit.
The REFERENCE 1 pairs the Uni-Q driver array with the sensational new 6.5 inch alloy cone bass driver to create a compellingly realistic sound stage out of all proportion to its size.
Mounted on shelves or stands, Uni-Q’s inherently wide, even dispersion also makes it the perfect rear channel speaker in a home theater system that effortlessly reveals all the subtleties encoded in modern soundtrack.
