KEF R3 Speakers
The R3 replaces the superb R300 which we were not happy about as manufacturers don't always get things right and the R300 was a brilliant speakrer but the R3 is better.
The R3 redefines standmount performance. No surprise, as it shares the same drivers as the range-topping R11. A true three-way speaker, the 165mm (6.5 in.) bass driver pushes bass performance to new extremes. The 125mm (5 in.) midrange driver and 25mm (1 in.) aluminium dome tweeter creates a Uni-Q array that defies the expectations from the most compact main speaker in the range.
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.
