Surprisingly poor build quality and mediocre sound
on July 23, 2017
The speaker body on my Q500 has gaps where it was put together in the front wood frame. The speaker body feels and looks cheap (i like the elac build quality much better). From this experience I feel that the KEF build quality control is lacking. I'm not a sound expert but was disappointed after reading rave reviews. Sound is not amazing at all - more or less a flat / dull quality.
Also be forewarned that these speakers are not returnable on amazon due to large magnets within. (Possibly this is true for any large speakers) So be sure this is what you want before ordering.
