KEF R700 Loudspeaker Review
U.K. speaker legends KEF have been front and center lately with cutting edge products like the flagship Blade and the 50th anniversary stand-mounted LS50. At $1500, the LS50 is a remarkable bargain for those with limited space. It certainly deserved much of the accolades the audio press bestowed upon it. KEF has an extensive, and impressive, array of product lines. The Uni-Q coaxial driver is at the heart of most of the designs, and rightly so. It is a remarkable driver that can be used in a variety of implementations. The LS50 is unique in that the Uni-Q was the only driver, which may have been the key to its magic. Other speakers in the KEF product take a different path. The KEF R Series of speakers are maybe the sweet spot, flanked by the top of the line Flagship ...

KEF LS50 Loudspeaker Review
KEF, based in the U.K., enjoys status as one of the most respected, and long-lived, speaker manufacturers in high-end audio. The company has designed and sold some of the best-known speakers in the history of the hobby. They have multiple lines they sell direct and through an extensive worldwide dealer network. Their products range from statement, reference level speakers, to more modest home theater applications. Their economies of scale and engineering resources allow them to cover all bases. KEF is famously associated with the development of the British Broadcasting Corporations’ iconic LS3/5a two-way mini monitor. The BBC used KEF drivers to develop a compact speaker for location monitoring that could stand the rigors of professional use. The design was later licensed to a number of manufacturers including Rogers, Spendor, Harbeth, and others. I owned two pairs of Rogers LS3/5As; I ...

Keeping the Sound in the Room: Soundproofing
As home theater enthusiasts, we tend to get excited about making our home theaters bigger, better, clearer and louder.  We drool over more powerful amplifiers more capable speakers and subwoofers that provide just the right amount of boom. We want best sound possible for our home theater, but when it comes to areas outside of our viewing room - when we're reading a book in the next room or trying to sleep in our beds - we just want silence.  Hearing those massive speakers outside of the home theater is a no.Whether you've got a dedicated theater space or a multi-purpose room that you use for your home theater, there is a wide array of options available to you, ranging from the cheap and simple to the costly and complex. To know how to block the sound that's escaping your ...

Klipsch Image X10i Headset Review
You can blame or thank Apple, because the iPod and iPhone have created a worldwide demand for in-ear headphones. There are hundreds of ear-bud phones and their ilk on the market, but few are engineered to produce audiophile-grade sound like Klipsch's Image X10i in-ear headphones. It makes sense that a company whose built its name and reputation for innovative loudspeaker designs would step slightly to the side and put that knowledge into a high-end headset. The Image X10is are Klipsch's lightest in-ear headset, with an in-line microphone and a 3-button remote for taking phone calls and controlling files on iPods, iPod touches and iPhone 3GS. Although the X10is are Apple compatible, the audience for these headsets is the music-loving audiophile with an iPod or iPhone stuffed full of tunes. With a suggested sticker price of $349.99, it's doubtful casual listeners ...

Klipsch WF-34 Floorstanding Loudspeakers Review
It's hard to imagine an audio world without the name “Klipsch” in the vocabulary. By all accounts, Klipsch founder Paul Klipsch was a one-off – a man with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and discovery that resulted in speaker concepts and designs that still exist decades after inking the first blueprints. In high-end audio, few things last long enough to become buzzwords or achieve classic status. Audiophiles often speak in hushed tones of reverence for Marantz's 10B tuner, Dynaco's ST-70 amplifier and Acoustic Research's AR turntables. That list must certainly include the Klipschorn – Paul Klipsch's venerable loudspeaker design still capturing the imagination and ears of audio enthusiasts as we approach the year 2010. It's a remarkable accomplishment that spits in the face of such technological “upgrades” as Windows 7 and other patches to fix what was never whole to ...
