KEF iQ 30


I've been in search of a "reasonable" priced bookshelf for a month or more now. My budget is to stay under $600. I've sampled the B&W 685, Polk RTiA3 and Paradigm Studio 20's to give you an idea for comparing my review.

Product Specifications

The iQ30 is an incredibly versatile music or home entertainment speaker with a seductive lightness of touch. With the same curved cabinet design minimizing internal reflections, it has a lyricism and depth not normally associated with bookshelf speakers. It delivers an excellent dynamic expression with a bass response that is deep and expansive. The 165mm Uni-Q array and 'tangerine' waveguide gives a dispersion that is characteristically consistent, so you enjoy the same extraordinary illusion of presence wherever you sit. It's like re-experiencing your favorite tracks or movies for the very first time.
