You can count the true innovators in sound reproduction on one hand. Those companies that were present at the birth of high-fidelity, helped create the new sound, and remain vital and relevant today. Kef is one of those companies. Founded in 1961 by Raymond Cooke OBE (1925 -1995) an ex-BBC Electrical Engineer, who was keen to experiment with new materials and technologies in order to create products with superior acoustic quality that could reproduce recordings as natural as the original performance. Originally creating speakers for BBC studios, then for discriminating home listeners, KEF’s technology and creativity touches almost every speaker made till today, whether by KEF or any other manufacturer. From the very beginning, the pioneering inventiveness of KEF loudspeakers was undeniable and audiophiles around the world revere KEF for its spectacular, high-performance musical reproduction.
