Review: KEF iQ30 Loudspeakers


One great benefit of the Uni-Q geometry used in the KEF iQ30 is that both the bass driver and the tweeter have almost exactly the same dispersion pattern or, as KEF frames it, ‘matched directivity', so as a listener moves off-axis, the high frequencies...

like a fine wine, improves with age


Great bang for your buck but give them time...

initially I hated them as the bass, treble and vocals all gort muddled and were not distinct ; it took a FULL MONTH of moderate-heavy use for them to open up and the soundstaging to come into its own ; Now they are brilliant

My beloved doesn't like the look of them without the front covers (reckons they are very show-offy)

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.
