NEWS: KEF packages its iQ speakers to save you money

KEF has announced packages based around its iQ Series speakers; each of the four set-ups is designed to give you a perfectly-matched surround system and also save anything from £45 to £260. And the company is also cutting the price of the baby iQ speaker: the iQ1s will now sell for £200, rather than £220.

The entry-level KEF package comprises two pairs of iQ1s, an iQ2C and the PSW2500 subwoofer, and sells for £850, saving you £45 on the price of the individual components. The next system substitutes iQ5s for the front left and right channels, and sells for £1000, a £100 saving.

The top 5.1-channel package combines the iQ7s, iQ1s, iQ6c centre and PSW2500, and sells for £1250, saving you £200, while there's also a 7.1-channel system using the iQ9s on the front left/right channels, four iQ3s for the surrounds, the iQ6C centre and the subwoofer. That one sells for £1750, instead of £2010 for the separate components.
