KEF Reference 1 – $8,000 REVIEW

Read Here

“I spent some quality time comparing the Reference 1 with Bower & Wilkins’ flagship monitor, the 805 D3. The Reference 1 is a three-way speaker, the 805 D3 is a two-way, so it didn’t reach as deep into the bass on my Lee “Scratch” Perry dub reggae CDs. The Reference 1’s low end outpaces the 805 D3’s, but the 805 D3 is a higher-resolution, more transparent design, so I could more clearly pick out individual voices in choral recordings. The Reference 1s projected a bigger, yet precisely focused stereo soundstage. As I continued to listen, I came to feel both speakers were highly accomplished performers with all music genres.”
