Kef Jumps On Dolby Atmos Technology With New Speaker Kit
At this weeks CEDIA show in the USA the US Company has introduced new the two-way R50 Atmos module, which sits on top of KEF’s current R Series and Q Series speakers.
The R50’s angled-up drivers bounce height effects off the ceiling.
The Atmos module sits on freestanding or wall-mounted speakers. The closed-box speaker uses a proprietary Uni-Q driver array consisting of 1-inch vented aluminum tweeter mounted in the center of a 5.25-inch bass/mid driver.
The speaker uses KEF’s tangerine waveguide to maximize dispersion. The speaker measures 6.9 by 7.1 by 10.2 inches. It delivers 106dB maximum output and boasts a frequency response of 105Hz to 18.5kHz (+/-3dB). Recommended amp power is 25 to 100 watts. It will be available in October.
The speakers are tipped to sell for around $1,500.
