I have some of these and they are really good , used them with a cyrus streamline. I was so impressed I upgraded my MA silver RS av speakers to the full R series with the 300's for front L&R and the 100's for the rear L&R.
They have imminence depth and detail with a warmth and fluidity to their presentation that punches well above their price tag. To my mind the best part is the vocals where with the right source material you can find a level of intimacy with the performance rarely found in a mid range stand mount.
The photo's dont really do them justice as not only do the sound great but they look really good to.
Just put togeher the R100 with the Marantz 8004 CD player and amp. Sounds perfect to me. Great balance. It seems that Marantz and Kef are made for each other!
Hello. I'm looking for speakers for a Marantz 6004 amp/cd. Will these be a good choice? Thanks in advance.
I have the 6004 combo with Kef r100, really nice balance, needs a good run in though, initially it sounded a bit bland but after 70hrs or so, opened up really nicely. Good bass too for such a small speaker. No problems when i crank up the volume.
Thanks a lot for the insight. I may be buying these based on reviews and info such as you have given me. Impossible to
audition them since I have no dealers nearby. Thanks again.
There has been extensive work done to the cabinet of the LS50, and a few driver tweaks to voice it slightly differently to the R100. THey are similar in some ways, but different in others.
The LS50's aren't limited, they're an Anniversary product
Looks great, and a potential 'must hear'.
A bit confused about its relationship with the LS50 which seems to have similar ingredients, and costs about £200 more. Maybe the latter are a limited edition?
The LS50 is promoted as a flagship product of KEF. From some of the other reviews, the LS50 is targeted for studio monitor use which has a more analytical and balanced sound, I am guessing the sound signature of LS50 should be very different from R series. Really looking forward to try out both!

Good but not great – and that’s not quite enough at this hugely competitive price for AV receivers
The Caterthun has strengths but we expect a more rounded product at this price
The Panasonic TX-P42GT60B TV shows that reports of plasma’s demise have been greatly exaggerated
