According to KEF, home theater enthusiasts looking for a surround sound speaker system that balances audiophile-quality sound with unlimited installation flexibility will be interested in KEF’s newest solution, KEF Wireless. The KEF wireless system utilizes proprietary technology to deliver what KEF claims is CD quality audio without the burden of drilling holes through the walls or running cables along the floor.

Initially offered in two iterations; as an aftermarket solution for use with any existing speaker system, or as the 5000W system designed to complement the KHT 5000 Series of products, the KEF Wireless System features a transmitter and two matching receivers. The receivers house two small but powerful 50-watt digital power amplifiers. Both versions of KEF Wireless are slated for a late 1st Quarter 2007 introduction and are expected to retail for $499.99.

In an attempt to glean audiophile-grade sound from a wireless speaker, KEF has developed a 2.4GHz wireless transmission technology that uses the most advanced error-protection and sophisticated adaptive frequency-hopping to ensure an interference-free signal. This proprietary technology is pre-emptive and will change channels automatically to a pre negotiated frequency (within the best available band) before any errors start to occur. CD quality audio won’t be affected by microwave ovens, cordless phones, or LAN routers claim the engineers at KEF.
