WIRELESS convenience as well as HIGH RESOLUTION SOUND
For enjoying high resolution sound from virtually any source, the new active KEF EGG wireless digital music system gives music lovers a complete audio solution that combines the supremely accurate definition of KEF's latest Uni-Q® driver array with the ability to stream tracks wirelessly via Bluetooth aptX®.
With an integrated amplifier and in-built DAC, it is possible to enjoy 96kHz/24-bit HiRes audio via the mini USB input from PC or Mac or via the optical digital input. In fact with the provided optical digital connection it is extremely easy to connect the sound output of any T.V. and enjoy all your favourite shows, music videos and movies through these little beauties. The KEF Egg system fulfils nearly every requirement for a flexible, compact, high resolution sound system - and looks stylish and classy while doing so.
The Eggs are heavy little speakers, a fact owed to their stout, anti-resonant cabinets and premium components inside. Outside, each speaker sports a matte finish (available in white, blue and black) that looks classy and should stay that way since they buck fingerprints so well. Even the unusually heavy remote control exudes an air of class.
Well balanced, articulate and easy on the ear, the KEF is a delightful performer. It tickles out plenty of top-end detail, while the solid mid-range and bass gel everything together.
What’s is perhaps most impressive is how the UniQ drivers project music as a seamless, cohesive whole. It’s perfectly balanced, never allowing one frequency band to overpower another – every element is granted the space and time to make itself heard. That’s testament to the KEF’s impressive transparency.
KEF says these new eggs are the most “sophisticated and acoustically accomplished version” of the speaker. The tweeter is internally vented to prevent potentially distorting high pressures from building up behind the dome. The tangerine-shaped waveguide position in front of the tweeter helps disperse the sound spherically for wider and more even dispersion. The ‘Z-flex’ cone surround around the mid/bass diaphragm limits secondary radiation. The midrange cone is made of aluminium to retain stiffness, and there’s also a damping ring to control resonances.
The two KEF Eggs look identical at a glance, but this is actually a master-slave system. One does the heavy lifting and passes information to the other.
All the processing takes place in the foot of the master unit, which features a mains input (external power brick, not figure-of-eight cable), mini USB input and an output for connecting to the slave unit, plus a subwoofer output for (optionally) adding lower frequencies later.
Part of the excitement the Egg imparts is the unexpected scale of its soundstage and the brilliant effect of its stereo separation. It is excels in almost every aspect at which even the most advanced one-box speakers fail. And underscoring it all is KEF’s unmistakable, impeccable sound signature.
Quote from Techwalla Comparison Review:
"You might want to nickname these the "Jerry Maguire speakers" because they'll have you at hello. Even if you're not an audiophile, you'll recognize the superior quality of KEF's Egg speakers from the very first musical note—the difference is that profound. The Egg has been deservedly praised for its soundstage, balance, detail, and warmth."
