KEF Offers Reference Models in Twelve Custom Colors

Finishes Inspired by the World's Leading Luxury and Sports Car Brands

Marlboro, NJ, March 8, 2010 - KEF, the renowned British manufacturer of innovative, reference -quality loudspeakers, announced that the company's renowned Reference Series loudspeakers will now be offered in twelve magnificent finishes, whose vibrant colors are directly related to the most prestigious luxury and sports car brands. If none of their twelve color options suit the customer's discerning palate, KEF will even custom build to order by special arrangement.

Each color is individually crafted to a high gloss finish with multiple layers of lacquer, each one polished to a mirror finish by hand before applying the next one. The result is a rich and brilliant shine that meets or exceeds that of most luxury automobiles.

KEF Reference model in choice of Lime or Orange Sorbet. Just two of the twelve striking custom color options now offered by special order.

Effective immediately, this service will take approximately three months to fulfill with a 15% premium over the standard piano black finish.
