KEF R500 Floorstanding speakers [Template]


no longer for sale

For sale - a sweet pair of KEF R500 speakers......I am the original owner of this pair and they are indeed fabulous. I have a problem where I need to get new speakers every year or two (and the significant other indicates "1 pair in, 1 pair out") ....thus someone can benefit from my dysfunction!!! These sound very nice and have KEF's well known UNI-Q driver, which yields a very smooth midrange and transition to the high end, all from the same point in space. There are reviews out there, so feel free to research...there are also NRC measurements out there too.
I would call the R500 the star of the R-series, assuming you use a sub with them. You don't have to use a sub with them (they are -6 dB at 39 Hz) but if you listen to anything with content in the bottom octave, you might want to. I went back and forth with using the sub or not........most music doesn't need it......I listen to a lot of old school jazz and rock from the 60's and 70's and for that, the sub is superfluous. But if you enjoy electronic music (like I do), the additional of a nice SVS SB13 Ultra works very nicely.
Enough of that.....these are in fine shape, and have the rosewood finish. In my opinion the rosewood is easily the nicest finish available in this line.....but I guess this is all subjective.

I have all the original packaging, grilles, manual, foam cushions, etc., but I don't really want to ship these.......but I could - I will split shipping 50/50 and ship with whatever service you like. Preferably, I live in northern CO, and will meet you somewhere localish to pass them off -  I don't mind driving an hour or two to make sure these don't get manhandled by the FedEx types. Alternately, you can come here see/touch/feel/hear them......your call.
Full disclosure - I have had these for just over a year, and while they are in great condition, there are a few hairline scratches on the tops that can probably be buffed out - I haven't done this, because honestly, you can't see them unless you are up close and you shine a light in the way that reveals them.....mostly they look pretty pristine. Since I am wanting folks to really know what they are getting, I attempted to take photos from angles and lighting that revealed these scratches.....they are usually not anywhere this obvious. There are also 2 small "dents" close together in the front of one of them.....again, from 5 feet away, you don't see them and it's an up close thing.......the last 2 photos this first up close in the lighting that revels them, and then from a few feet away. I would really call these condition = 8.5 but I don't feel that comfortable rounding up to 9.

Let me know if you have any questions or want additional photos.....
