Just utterly splendid and a long time overdue Colin.
Sadly also free material for the ePrey hyenas!

Now back to some reminiscing... thank you!

Hello

Brilliant !

However, there's a slightly confusing error here : http://www.kef.com/html/gb/explore/about_kef/museum/1970s/index.html the picture linking to the 105.2 data shows a 105/4 speaker.

T52 and B300 datasheets seem to have vanished, but anyway I really like the new presentation and contents.

Thierry

Yes that is confusing. All the captions say "Reference Series Model" and nothing else. It's the same using IE8 or Chrome, so I don't think it's a browser problem.

Good job by Andrew Watson. May not get corrected or updated now he's left KEF.

Still, it's a great site!

What's the deal with Corelli, Calinda and Cantata? Why are they in black & white?

I love my Calindas but I rarely see them in colour. Did they never have colour sales brochures for them?

Colour was considered too expensive in the 70s. Even black and white photo copies were pricey in those days. I could go on for ever now in grumpy old man mode.....................

I am about a quarter of the way through this mammoth publication, it is just utterly awesome.

Dear KEF lovers, please take my word for it, this is an amazing book, save your pennies, stop buying CDs for a month or stop smoking or drinking and save your pennies.

This is a gem and no doubt about it, sheer indulgence in the magic craft of loudspeaker design and British Hi-Fi history.

Do not delay, buy it today! (Sorry for that) Very Happy

Ah! all I saw was delivery 0 in the list and did not look at the drop down box on the left. So amazon is a good buy on a good exchange rate day Smile
