tower speaker / aluminium
BLADE TWO. Same DNA. Same striking aesthetic. Same advanced driver technology and unique single apparent source configuration. And above all, the same lush, phenomenally realistic sound.
Like the original BLADE, BLADE TWO is based on the advanced materials and innovative technologies KEF developed to replicate the shattering performance of the prototype, and the same method of forming the sensuous parabolic cabinets. The drivers on both models share the sophisticated enhancements responsible for the concept's magical acoustics.
It's a spectacularly warm and expansive sound, wherever you sit. Seamless. Totally natural, even when played loud. Effortlessly accurate in every tiny detail, and as emotionally true as a live performance.
If you're into your music, you'll soon see that they years it took to make the dream a reality were well worth it.
