An absolutely beautiful, and gorgeous sounding, pair of speakers with stands and original boxes. This pair of Kef 201/2 Reference were purchased new by the seller back in 2008 and have lived in a smoke-free home ever since. The sound is so very engaging, and the speakers sound even better than the day they were unboxed. You can see how they perform, and get a look at the stands, at youtu.be/3r5-6iztaEs. Cosmetically almost flawless, save a few minor areas which are depicted clearly in the photos.
Stereophile said of the 201/2:
"In addition to being drop-dead gorgeous, the KEF 201/2 is phenomenally well built. Its curved cabinet is sexy enough that you just might find yourself stroking its flank—if not surreptitiously patting its fanny. Fit'n'finish are exceptional.
And the 201/2 is properly thought out, as well. I heard no problems from that coincidentally mounted tweeter and midrange, and I was listening for them. There was no "cupped hands" coloration, and the handoff from midrange to tweeter was seamless. Then there are the EQ "switches," the effects of which were subtle but effective. Matching the 201/2 to your system, room, and taste should be simpler than with most speakers.
As for the 201/2's sound: Loved it! That's pretty much it.
I don't have any caveats, other than suggesting that it's hard to have too much power for the KEFs—they want, need, and require juice, and lots of it. I suppose some will criticize the Reference 201/2 Signature for its price of $6000/pair. That is a lot of money for a stand-mounted monitor, but its performance suggests that KEF put a lot into the 201/2. What that's worth to you would be impossible for me to predict.
What I also couldn't have anticipated was how much, ultimately, I responded to the Reference 201/2 Signature. It's a truism that no transducer is perfect, but the 201/2 Signature is an absolute gem—if not flawless, then damn close."
