KEF 1000 Series Piano Black Home Theater Speaker Package - KHT10052BK
The KEF ‘EGG’ took the consumer electronics world by storm when it was first introduced. Its revolutionary looks have been copied by a plethora of imitators but its outstanding performance has been impossible to re-create as awards around the World for these remarkable systems testify.
The most compact of the KHT systems, the KHT1005.2, has continued the success story of this now iconic ‘egg’ as they may look cute but they sound anything but. Now in its second generation, this system delivers an incredible performance that belies its size – more intense, more involving and with the addition of the new KUBE-1 subwoofer with more impact than before.
The sleek KHT1005.2 comprises four satellites (HTS100.2), a centre channel speaker (HTC1001.2) - all closed box design - and a beautifully matched subwoofer the KUBE-1. In die-cast aluminium enclosures, the satellites and centre speaker incorporate the smallest ever (75 mm/3 inch) KEF Uni-Q array. With enhanced tweeter performance for the satellite and centre surround a frequency range of 100Hz-30kHz has been achieved for excellent dispersion and as the centre speaker has an identical array, perfect timbre match across all 5 channels.
Extended bandwidth is achieved through the use of a 15 mm (0.6 inch) aluminium HF unit. Wall mounting brackets are included as part of the system giving the user the option to wall or desk mount. Optional stands with cable management facility are available.
KEF's patented 'sit anywhere' Uni-Q driver places the tweeter in the acoustic centre of the bass/midrange cone (woofer). This allows both woofer and tweeter to act as a single, focused source of sound that is dispersed widely and evenly throughout the room. The practical benefit is that great sound can be experienced from anywhere in the listening environment removing the "sweet spot" effect.
