Product Details

KEF XQ Series XQ40GB Piano Black Floorstanding Speakers, Model XQ40BK

Respect is what the XQ40 commands. Not just because it sounds as assertive as it looks, but because of the uncanny illusion of presence it creates. Flanked by a pair of 165mm (6.5in.) ultra-low distortion LF drivers for exceptionally fluid bass response, the individually pair-matched Uni-Q® midrange/HF array floods even the largest space with an intricately detailed sound image, irrespective of where you happen to be sitting.

      Comments about KEF XQ Series Piano Black Floorstanding Pair Speakers:

      The Holy Grail of music reproduction is to have speakers that "disappear" and make the music sound real. In thirty years of audiophile listening and having owned over a dozen quality speakers, these are the first speakers I've ever owned that truly disappear. When I first put on one of my favorite classical choral pieces, it seemed like the singers were right there at the other end of the room. I got goosebumps! And there is plenty of ooomph for my action movies too. Extremely highly recommended and worth every penny.
      And as usual, Abt's knowledgeable sales people were very helpful. It's nice to go into a store where the sales staff knows their product.
