KHT1005 Follows in Tradition of Award Winning KHT2005
KEF Audio has announced details of its new, affordable KHT1005 Home Theater Package, which brings the world famous, award -winning KEF KHT technology, philosophy and - above all - sound quality to a wider audience at an entry -level price.
The KEF KHT2005 (now in version 2) took the consumer electronics world by storm when it was first introduced just over a couple of years ago. Its revolutionary looks have been copied by a plethora of imitators but its outstanding performance has been impossible to re -create and awards around the world were heaped upon this remarkable system. The new KHT1005 is a direct offspring of the KHT2005, offering style and sonic presentation unheard of at the price.
The sleek silver or black finished KHT1005 is comprised of four satellites (HTS1001), a center channel speaker (HTC1001) - all closed box design - and a beautifully matched powered sub -woofer (PSW 1150). In die -cast aluminum enclosures, the satellites and center speaker incorporate the smallest ever (75 mm/3 inch) brand -new KEF UNI -Q® array for excellent dispersion and, as the center speaker has an identical array, perfect timbre match across all 5 channels. Extended bandwidth is achieved through the use of a new 15 mm (0.6 inch) aluminum HF unit. Optional wall mounting brackets are available, as well as optional stands with cable management facility.
The PSW1150 powered sub -woofer (with a 150 watt on -board amplifier and a 200 mm (8 inch) long -throw front firing driver) utilizes a new slot port design and additionally features a ground lift switch, a 12dB/24dB slope switch and a cinema/music switch for selection between differing types of output. It also has variable - frequency, phase and level adjustment, line level inputs and high pass outputs.
The KEF KHT1005 is the result of KEF engineers' unyielding quest to create a stylish, flexible, compact system delivering both a great theater experience and audiophile sound quality at an affordable price.
