KEF engineers do not believe in compromise, the R5 floorstander is compact and elegant yet it delivers music and movies with ease.
The svelte R5 contains a Uni-Q with 125mm (5in.) midrange driver and 25mm (1 in.) aluminium dome tweeter for incredible detail while twin 130mm (5.25in.) hybrid aluminium bass units manage the bass.
Placing the tweeter in the acoustic centre of the midrange cone brings the acoustic ideal of a single point source closer to realisation. The new R Series benefits from a new 12th generation of the legendary Uni-Q which has been extensively designed using KEF’s in-house simulation and analysis tools. KEF’s engineers have been able to dramatically reduce colouration through reducing resonance in the minute gaps between Uni-Q’s separate elements. The resulting sound is purer, more precise and makes stereo imaging far more believable.
A solid platform is imperative for great sound. The new R Series benefits from Constrained layer damping. This system utilises internal braces joined by a ‘lossy’ interface and is highly effective at dissipating unwanted vibrations that would otherwise artificially change the sound and music.
The R Series benefits from Constrained Layer Damping bracing originally developed for the multiple award-winning LS50, and a new internal bracing layout. This combination brings the R Series closer to the internal structure of the Reference Series, and helps it deliver music as it is supposed to sound, without any unwanted extras.
