A brief encounter with KEF X300A active speakers.

Jonathan from Kef Audio UK called in yesterday with the new KEF X300A active speaker system and of course we had to have a listen.

Initial reaction from everyone who listened to them? Well  "very impressive".

They have a soundstage which really fills a room along with the detail and low frequency performance that we have come to expect from a KEF speaker.

Each speaker has its own 96kHz/24 USB dac for use with a pc and there is also a 3.5mm analogue input which shows the quality of the class A-B amplification while bypassing the DACs.
