KEF BLADE SINGLE APPARENT SOURCE TECHNOLOGY - ON DEMONSTRATION AT MARTIN'S NOW

When KEF gave their engineers free rein to create the best speaker they could, they came up with the revolutionary Concept Blade prototype – the world’s first single apparent source loudspeaker. Its sonic capabilities were so impressive that KEF created an edition that serious audiophiles could actually own.
High-performance sound reproduction requires the drivers of a multi-way loudspeaker to generate very similar individual sound fields, especially at the crossover frequencies where the acoustic output switches from one driver to another. KEF’s Single Apparent Source technology allows this ideal to be achieved over the entire frequency range.

The KEF Blade 2 is modelled after the multi-award winning Blade speakers with all the same acoustic prowess and iconic design on a slightly smaller scale.

So with that in mind we at Martins Hi Fi have made another addition to the impressive array of speakers we have on display. And are proud to add the Kef Blade Two to our diverse range of speakers.

The Blades come in a stunning range of colour options and gloss finishes.  There is even a colour match option for the two’s, so you can really make them your own.

The Blades are simply stunning to behold, and even better to listen to.  With exceptional clarity but still managing to produce a stunning bass sound that you can only get from a speaker of this level and performance. A bass you can feel rather than simply listen to.

As for their looks – well judge for yourself, standing at 57.5” tall, they are elegant with smooth lines   designed by Eric Chan, of New York-based ECCO Design, they are a statement piece that are an asset both visually and audibly to any home.

If you’d like to have a demonstration of these stunning speakers, please telephone us on 01603 627010 ask for Steve or Ian, or email them directly: steve@martinshifi.co.uk    Ian@martinshifi.co.uk.
