The KIT 200 is KEF’s latest Instant Theater system. The company designed it to give home theater lovers a full-bodied performance from their hi-fi systems without clutter, confusing separate components, several remote controls or large floor-standing speakers.

The KIT200 consists of a remote-controllable DVD head unit (that supports DVD, DVD-RW and DVD+RW, CD, CD-R/RW and MP3 data CD) with an AM/FM tuner. Among its connectors are three audio inputs (analog and optical digital), one optical digital audio output, one S-video and one composite video inputs and video outputs that support progressive scan, S-video and composite formats.

The five satellite speakers in the package feature KEF’s Uni-Q array, a technology the company says offers distinct vocal intelligibility bringing transparency to dialogue, even when it goes against ambience noise. The array is accompanied by a pair of three-inch long throw bass drivers and features KEF’s 0.6-inch aluminum dome HF driver at the centre of a three-inch midrange cone to disperse sound evenly throughout the room. The KIT200’s stand-alone subwoofer features a 10-inch long throw driver and six high-power amplifier channels for the subwoofer and satellite speakers. The amplification from the subwoofer can power the satellite speakers using the supplied speaker wires. The system will be available in October at a MSRP of $2,999.99.
