KEF KHT1005.2 Speaker System

KEF, renowned British manufacturer of audiophile-quality speakers and world-class home theater speakers, has announced the addition of the brand new KHT1005.2 Series to its Home Theater Speaker family. The KHT1005.2 Series is a 5.1 home theater speaker system that features KEF’s iconic ‘egg-shaped’ surround speakers and is complemented by the KUBE-1, KEF’s newest, entry-level subwoofer. It is the second generation installment to their Home Theater 1000 Series speaker system.

Based on the highly-successful Home Theater 1000 Series speaker system, the KHT1005.2 Series improves upon the already stellar audio performance of its predecessor. With four satellites and one center channel speaker, the KHT1005.2 features the latest generation of Uni-Q drivers with advanced aerospace material. At 75mm (3”), they are the smallest Uni-Q drivers used in KEF speakers, resulting in exceptional clarity within a diminutive enclosure.

KEF’s patented Uni-Q driver achieves what audio engineers have sought for decades: to project an exceptionally broad frequency range from just a single point. Uni-Q technology disperses sound over a wide area without losing quality, which the consumer can enjoy from any location within a room. KEF places its tweeter in the acoustic and mechanical center of the midrange cone, resulting in a near-perfect, single-point-source driver. This configuration ensures both drivers’ frequency ranges are delivered in precise focus, providing the widest achievable dispersion. All listeners throughout the room can enjoy optimal sound quality, including those outside of the typical “sweet spot.” Simply stated, the entire room is the “sweet spot.”

The KHT1005.2 satellite and center speakers are the most compact of KEF’s home theater speaker systems. Available only in high-gloss black finish, it is well-suited to the trend of high-gloss TVs. By also including wall mount brackets, KEF gives consumers the option to mount the speakers to a wall or shelf. The complete KHT1005.2 Speaker System includes four satellite speakers (one pair for front and one pair for rear), one center channel speaker and the KUBE-1 Powered Subwoofer to create a stunning 5.1 home theater experience. The system is available now for a listed MSRP of $800.00.
