The All New KEF Reference 5. 


Dave listens intently.

Not the ideal position for speakers but all our new arrivals land on the shop floor demo area for all to see. 

A few words from KEF.


Magnificent is the only word.

KEF’s passion for perfection embodied in a tall three-way floorstander that aligns four powerful, extremely linear 165mm (6.5 inch) bass drivers – two above and two below KEF’s latest 125mm (5 inch) MF/HF Uni-Q array, with the sensational new 25mm (1 inch) vented aluminium dome tweeter at the acoustic centre. Lows are reproduced with consummate agility and control, fluidly integrating with the Uni-Q output to create an all-enveloping soundfield of spine-tingling accuracy and depth. For music or film, it reveals subtleties you’d never noticed while gripping your emotions with the full power of the performance.

THE REFERENCE: the standard by which others are judged, and to which they aspire.

The perfect reproduction of recorded sound is what KEF's legendary Reference Series has always stood for. And after 40 years of continuous development, the Reference has earned its name as the yardstick of high-end acoustic engineering.

If you're a perfectionist when it comes to enjoying movies or music, it's the one name that towers above the rest.

The Reference. It speaks for itself.

A description was needed to convey the idea that every loudspeaker is subject to scrutiny at all stages of assembly, culminating in a final test comparison with a laboratory-maintained reference standard. So the method became the name: Reference.”

- Laurie Fincham, Engineering Director 1968-1991
