KEF XQ30 review


The new XQ range from KEF brings sophisticated technology to Uni-Q

Compact dimensions help ensure an elegant-looking product ; Fine resolving power and exceptional imaging

Somewhat fierce tonal balance mandates unusual care over system balance

Unusually explicit stereo imaging adds interest to the sound. The XQ30 boasts a well balanced, if relatively lightweight bass. But there is a hint of treble excess which, in some cases, could make system matching problematic

Product Specifications

Tall, slender and undeniably elegant, the XQ30 is the perfect synergy between performance and size. The pairing of an ultra-low distortion bass driver with the incarnation of KEF's signature Uni-Q 'point source' array for the middle and upper frequencies disperses a compellingly rich three-dimensional sound field evenly throughout the listening area. Crossover technology developed from the Reference Series assures excellent power handling, along with exceptionally fluid transitions.
