KEF X300A

 

KEF has struck gold with the X300A, a high-resolution active desktop speaker system that sounds amazing when connected to any computer.

Amazing sound quality. Beautifully crafted. USB connection ensures top-notch audio without needing a separate digital-to-analog converter

Very expensive. No provision for adding a subwoofer

If you're an audiophile with the means, you'll do well to look at the KEF X300A ($799.99 direct). It's an ideal pair of speakers for an apartment, office, or study, and it includes a digital USB connection for improved, all-digital sound when connected...

KEF X300A review

 

When it comes to high-tech engineering and high-quality sound, few speaker companies can match KEF's endeavors. The British-based, Asian-owned company has been designing advanced drivers for over 50 years, both for its own speakers and for numerous...

Class-leading, audiophile-grade sonics ; Exciting, lively tonal balance with excellent detail ; Sound great in a variety of locations ; Wide dispersion design easily fills a room ; Awesome build quality

Lively balance occasionally tends towards brightness ; Mildly finicky about placement ; DAC resolution somewhat limited

Let’s not beat around the bush: The KEF X300As are one of the most thrillingly enjoyable speaker systems we’ve heard in quite some time.

KEF X300A Powered Speakers Review

 

Review: The KEF X300A powered speakers use two class AB amplifiers in each speaker. A 50 watt amp drives the woofer and handles the low and mid frequencies, and a 20 watt amp powers the 1" tweeter.

In case you can't tell by now, I love these speakers. They're $800/pair and worth every penny if your focus is on midrange, high frequency detail, natural-sounding vocals and the ability to drive a speaker as hard as you want without fear of...

KEF X300A Digital Hi-Fi Speaker System Preview

 

While the new KEF X300A Digital Hi-Fi speakers don't have all the technology of the LS50 Mini Monitors, they are self powered, are fed digitally, and cost only $799.99 a pair.

With the level of technology in the KEF X300A, $800 a pair seems remarkably reasonable to us. Borrowing much from the $30,000 a pair Blade concept speaker, the X300A should sound very, very good for the money. Keeping the source content in the digital...

Kef X300A review

 

The best USB speakers we've ever heard, but they're expensive

It's hard to fault these beautiful-sounding speakers, but they rely upon a USB connection for optimal audio quality, which could be a hard sell to an enthusiast market that remains obsessed with analogue.

KEF X300A

 

A niche design, but these KEF speakers will please some with their smooth, detailed sound

Superb tonal integration ; Expansive and detailed sound ; Lovely build quality

Lack punch and dynamics ; Too big for most desks ; Limited connection options

These KEFs have a character that’s easy to listen to, but hard to fall in love with – and that’s despite the exceptional integration and superb detail.

KEF X300A

 

KEF has struck gold with the X300A, a high-resolution active desktop speaker system that sounds amazing when connected to any computer.

Each X300A speaker includes twin class-AB amplifiers: a 20-watt unit for the tweeter and a 50-watt amp for the magnesium woofer, as well as the aforementioned DAC. KEF rates the X300A at 58Hz to 28kHz, plus or minus 3dB, and 49Hz to 45kHz, plus or...
