Expert review by : Ryan Waniata (

Review: KEF R3 Meta Speakers


These high-end speakers look unbelievable and sound very natural; the only downside is the cost.

Phenomenal transparency. Sweet and effortless detail. Incredibly expressive dynamics. Superb instrumental separation and definition. Immersive stereo imaging. Rapid transient response. Tight and powerful bass. Extremely stylish and well-built....

A hefty investment at full price.

KEF R3 Meta review


An elevated and entertaining performance from classy speakers

Transparent, refined, expressive sound ; Even tonal balance ; Heaps of fun, too ; Innovative technology ; Excellent build and finish

Sounds best when positioned away from a wall and paired with equally talented kit

KEF knocks it out the park again: the R3 Metas are wonderfully transparent, refined speakers that are hugely entertaining performers, too
