KEF X300A review

 

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.

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. Its combination of class-leading transparency, lively and detailed tonal balance, placement versatility, and...

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.

The package actually includes two mini-USB-to-USB cables; one connects the two speakers to each other, while the other connects the left speaker to your computer's USB port. Once you've made these two connections, plug both speakers into the wall,...

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.

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 Wireless review

 

With either network connection, Apple devices such as a MacBook, iPhone or iPad can be easily paired for playing music. And besides Apple AirPlay you can also use the X300A Wireless speakers on a network using UPnP.

There are desktop speakers, and there are loudspeakers that will also fit on the desk. In the case of the KEF X300A Wireless, we have a pair of active powered loudspeakers with genuine hi-fi and pro-studio pedigree that deserve finding space on your...

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 Wireless Speakers: Australian Review

 

Wireless speakers are nothing new, but they're usually relatively cheap and portable and designed to pair over Bluetooth with your smartphone at a picnic or the beach. What if you wanted something a little more serious for your living room? The...

The $1399 KEF X300A speakers occupy a particular niche in the audiophile world — one that is a huge step up from other wireless speakers, in the market of other high-quality wired bookshelf speakers — and are pretty damn impressive in that niche. Feed...

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...
