KEF KHT3005BL (glossy black)

 

You can either sit the 12-inch-wide, 13.2-pound center speaker on the included rubber table stand or wall-mount it with the supplied bracket. The matching 24.2-pound subwoofer has options, too; you can stand it up vertically or lay it horizontally on...

The KEF KHT-3005 is one compact, beautifully designed speaker package with solid aluminum satellites that feature unique driver technology to produce incredible clarity. Meanwhile, the equally astounding dual 10-inch, 250-watt powered subwoofer...

Finicky setup required to produce best sound.

KEF's stunningly styled egg-shaped speaker package, the KHT-3005, boasts audiophile-quality sound for music and impressive home-theater performance.

KEF KHT-3005 Home Theater Speakers Review and Prices

 

Form meets function, and the two embrace in the 3005 series speakers from KEF. Designated as the KHT-3005, this futuristic-looking 5.1 system resembles a tasteful, yet playful speaker system that would look right at home in Mork from Ork's home (ask...

Beautiful design, tight bass, plays loud

Simplistic subwoofer connections, somewhat directional, limiting speaker terminals

Crime in New York gets more and more bizarre. The other day, someone broke into my apartment and redesigned my speakers. I'm not sure if our local burglars are capable of this. No, the KEF KHT 3005 is clearly the product of an extraterrestrial mind....

KEF KHT3005 HD2

 

Impeccably built and finished, but sound lacks brio

Impeccably built and finished ; usefully compact subwoofer ; expansive, poised sound

Not the fastest, most dynamic or most attacking sound on the market

Refined, spacious and smooth In broad terms, the 3005 HD2 is as refined, spacious and smoothly expansive a listen as every previous 3005 variant we've tested.

KEF KHT-3005

 

KEF's stunningly styled egg-shaped speaker package, the KHT-3005, boasts audiophile-quality sound for music and impressive home-theatre performance.

Compact, beautifully designed speaker package ; Solid aluminum satellites ; Unique driver technology produces incredible clarity ; Dual 10-inch, 250-watt powered subwoofer delivers ultradeep bass

Finicky setup required to produce best sound

So what are the KEF KHT-3005's limitations? Well, compared to a set of much larger speakers, they just don't offer the same volume capability, dynamic range, and home-theatre impact. Higher-end full-size speaker packages simply play louder and deliver...

KEF KHT 3005 SE

 

Imagine an egg, not your usual size 6 or 7 but say, around a size 30. Now cut said egg in half own its vertical axis and finish in black high gloss. This is basically what the speakers of the KEF Home Theatre 3000 series look like. Sounds kind of...

This set of speakers contains four satellites, a centre speaker and subwoofer. The four satellites stand on little pedestals and are connected with a little ball joint, allowing the speaker to be aimed precisely. If you'd like to wall mount them, the...

Not the most dynamic of systems

 

KEF's 'eggs' are now sounding even better...

Great looks, easy placement, comfortable when loud

Not the most dynamic of systems

Of course it's not cheap, but just nudging into four figures, it's far from silly money valley either. For this level of sound quality and style, it's perfectly reasonably priced. In many ways it's comfortable, even cosy system, that delivers well on...

Product Specifications

The specially shaped curved aluminum enclosures make for an acoustically ideal housing. Simply put, the HTS3001 satellites sound much better than traditional rectangular loudspeakers. KEF's "sit anywhere" Uni-Q technology disperses sound around the room so well that you can 'sit anywhere' to enjoy the optimum surround experience. The radical new "sealed suspension technology" incorporated in the speaker driver makes for cleaner, smoother response: The satellites can play astonishingly loud, without sounding unpleasant. The distinctive ribs visible on the speaker cone improve rigidity. This makes for a clean, natural and dynamic sound.
