Now in store is some of the new Q Series range from KEF. We have the new Q 150, Q 350, and Q 550 on display in the shop.

With their sleek new looks and colour coordinated drive units these speakers really do look very smart indeed. KEF have improved all aspects of the design over the older Q Series (which was a very well received range in its own right.

KEF's famous Uni-Q driver has been improved again as has the bass unit giving a better performance-for-price than ever before.

The sound is great too. The little Q 150 sounding like a younger brother to the famous LS50 with its small footprint it was pumping out Rag'n'Bone man like a floorstander!

The Q 350 was put through its paces with some female vocals courtesy of Bjork and the detail clarity and precision was astounding, the soundstage is huge with these speakers.

 Yes the driver is dark blue!

Yes the driver is dark blue!

For a relatively compact floorstander the Q 550 really does give that big room-filling sound, a little bit of classic Queen really made these speakers sing for their supper! We followed it with some Muse.......just to make sure, but they can also do delicacy, Sarah McLachlan's plaintive voice proved that they can.

It seems safe to say KEF have come up with a winner in the new Q Series. They have all the hallmarks of the KEF Uni-Q designs with great dispersion and imagery, and great dynamic range and presence for their price points. They will work equally well in two channel stereo or multi-channel home cinema systems, so come and have a listen.

On the subject of KEF we also have the magnificent Blade 2 speakers here for a short time so grab the chance to have a listen while you can!!

Upcoming November Events in Brentwood

 

We're having a few fun musical events/ open days in Brentwood during November.

On the 20th REL will be visiting with some BIG subwoofers to show how much can be gained by adding those lower registers to both HiFi and home cinema systems. We'll also have the projector room set up with a Dolby Atmos system for your delight and delectation. This will run in store from 12 noon until 8PM, be sure to come along and prepare to be impressed.

 

Then on the 27th we will have systems from KEF, The Chord Company, Chord Electronics and Project running again from 12 noon until 8PM. Chord Electronics are promising some meaty amps (alongside current favourites like the Hugo and Qute DACs) to drive the Blade 2 from KEF. There will also be some new KEF Reference speakers, Chord Company Tuned Aray cables and one of the top flight Project turntables for some vinyl delights.

And speaking of vinyl delights don't forget our Vinyl Saturday on the 15th with the guys from Diverse Vinyl

 

We're looking forward to seeing you and tempting you with some wonderful sounds and equipment....and maybe a bargain or two!

See you then

We are delighted to announce that we will be holding another two channel stereo Hi-Fi event and this time we will be showcasing Heed amplification, KEF loudspeakers and AudioQuest cables and interconnects.

Separated over three rooms we will be running the following set ups:

Heed's award winning Obelisk Integrated with the DT Transport. Another transport with a Pre and PS (Stereo Power Amp) and PM (Mono Power Amp). Thrown into the mix will also be the DA (DAC) which we will be using with a laptop to show off what an asynchronous DAC can do!

And for vinyl heads we will be using the infamous Quasar Questar MM/MC phono stage with a Michell GyroDec in our bigger system and the Rega RP6 in our smaller system.

KEF will be showing off their fantastic Reference range with a pair of 203/2's in the bigger of the dem rooms and then using the R range through out the rest of the systems. As well as one of our personal favourites the LS50!

AudioQuest will be joining these systems all together with their many RCA balanced interconnects, speaker cables, USB, Mains cables and more!

The event will be held on Thursday 7th November and will from 12 midday to 7.30pm that evening.
