I’m curious, we have sites (places) of special interest, various graded buildings, lots of archived materials In institutes that will always be around but, as yet, nothing for safeguarding “special” websites.

I think this is one of those “special” websites in that it has some very knowledgeable enthusiasts and even folk that have work at Kef in the 60’s and 70’s and that helped design and develop these speakers who as they pass on and pass away can never be replaced.
But their words and wisdom are still here for all to see and read.

Does the admin of this site have any consolidation plans for the future of this site ?
Or am I foolish to think that anybody will have any interest in Kef in 50 or 100 years time ?

(Sorry if I posted this in the wrong place but wasn't sure where to post it)

There are speakers out there that are already 40 - 50 years old so I guess what you are asking is in another 40 or 50 years, where will this site be?

A lot of the knowledge hear is also applicable to non-Kef speakers. Perhaps it's that's why it's usefull to keep.
