- KEF R700 (Pair) Floorstanding Speakers
- Marantz PM68006 Integrated Amplifier
- Marantz ND8006 Digital Music Source Player
The KEF R700 exudes sophistication, not only in its contemporary design and use of high quality real wood and piano high gloss finishes, but in its class-leading sonic reproduction. The three-way design makes music or movie sound tracks controlled, detailed and dynamic, whilst twin 6.5-inch aluminium bass drivers deliver a fast, controlled and authoritative low end.
Amazingly fast and clean mid-range response. Startlingly pure high frequencies. All operating as a single perfectly integrated voice to deliver sweet, accurate sounds of unprecedented clarity.
KEF Uni-Q driver array is nothing short of a masterpiece. Unlike conventional speakers, the mid-range cones are rigid magnesium/aluminum constructions that reduce breakup problems. The new mid-range Z-flex surround smoothes the tweeter transition to the front baffle, which results in undistorted high frequencies.
Large voice coils increase power handling and dynamics, reducing distortion and delivering exceptional vocal clarity.
Venting the tweeters reduces pressure behind the dome, increasing midrange bandwidth and lowering distortion. Upper registers are articulated with flawless precision. KEF’s tangerine waveguide helps disperse higher frequencies evenly across a wider angle to flood the room with a sophisticated, refreshingly natural sound field.
Dynamic, uncompressed and undistorted bass of heart pounding clarity envelops you, striking deep emotional chords. Your soul will awaken. And the earth will move.
Massive, vented magnet assemblies and large aluminum voice coils drive the lightweight yet stiff, strong hybrid cones. Bass output is faster, cleaner and more accurate. Satin anodised elements contribute to the unit’s elegance, while the diameter of the trim ring accentuates a visual sophistication that belies the speaker’s awesome power.
Designed from the ground up, the R series is a towering leap forward that creates a new dimension in sonic authenticity. The geometry and bracing of the enclosure optimises vibrational behavior, reducing secondary radiation from cabinet walls for a cleaner sound. Damping panels further minimize cabinet resonance and colouration. Front baffles are clean with no visible screws. Grilles are fixed magnetically. Available in real Walnut and Rosewood veneers, or highly polished Piano Black, the R Series complements the home as much as it respects the music.
A little finesse goes a long way to delivering a big impact. Every aspect of the R Series has been considered in the creation of a superb audio experience. Adjustable die cast aluminum feet support steel spikes, with integrated locking knobs for easy height adjustment. Nickel plated bi-wire connectors with terminal linking control allow all standard connection methods and provide easy, reliable connection. The geometry of the reflex ports has been tuned to minimize turbulence at high levels, reducing port noise and low frequency compression.
The R Series presents the high-end technologies of KEF Blade in a timeless, elegant format. Serious audiophiles can now enjoy phenomenally accurate reproduction that neither adds nor subtracts from the original recording. Indulge in a near THE REFERENCE experience at a price that will also be music to your ears. Refined, spacious and exquisitely detailed, you won't just hear music the way it was intended it to be. you'll live it, feel it and love it.
With a fully discrete current feedback design, the PM8006 integrated amplifier is perfect for audiophiles wanting both excellent music quality and flexible operation. It offers a powerful 2x 70W into 8 ohm, while the symmetrical circuits ensure optimal imaging. To ensure the most involving musical experience, the amplifier uses a new Marantz-designed electric volume control and brand-new Marantz Musical Phono EQ phono preamp stage, designed to get the purest signal from beloved vinyls by minimized noise levels. To further remove interference, new isolating feet are used to support the amplifier, combining high density and a damping fibre.
The PM8006 also includes preamp outputs along with a power amp direct input, which lets you use the unit as a standalone power amplifier for integration into a multi-channel home theater system. For precise sound tailoring, our triple tone control system provides separate controls for the bass, midrange and treble. The elegant remote control features an ergonomic layout for easy operation, and can control accompanying source players.
