Simply the best!

Conclusions

With the Reference 1, KEF has raised the bar for stand-mounted loudspeakers in several ways. In a flash, my wife picked up on the speaker’s high-tech appearance and attractive styling. The high level of technology applied -- most notably, the current generation of KEF’s Uni-Q coincident driver -- seems nothing short of an engineering marvel. But most important is the Reference 1’s quality of sound -- within its bandwidth, it’s as accurate as it is musically engaging. This is the kind of speaker that you can use in a studio, to assess every microscopic detail of a recording -- and then turn around and use it at home to actually enjoy everything just captured on tape. The balance of sonic qualities that KEF’s designers has attained is spot on. This modestly sized speaker also has the uncanny ability to play at whisper-quiet and shockingly loud levels with effortless composure. Coupled with its bass, tunable with port tubes, the Reference 1 is a versatile transducer that can work well in a wide variety of rooms -- even very large ones such as mine. That’s rare in a stand-mounted design.

KEF’s Reference 1 is the best stand-mounted speaker I’ve ever heard. The bottommost octave excepted, it’s among the very best speakers I’ve heard of any size and price. As its name implies, the Reference 1 can indeed be considered a reference for stand-mounted loudspeaker design.
