      SOUNDSTAGE! NETWORK - REVIEWERS' CHOICE

      "With the Reference 1, KEF has raised the bar for stand-mounted loudspeakers in several ways. In a flash, my wife picked up on the speaker's high-tech appearance and attractive styling. The high level of technology applied -- most notably, the current generation of KEF's Uni-Q coincident driver -- seems nothing short of an engineering marvel. But most important is the Reference 1's quality of sound -- within its bandwidth, it's as accurate as it is musically engaging...KEF's Reference 1 is the best stand-mounted speaker I've ever heard." - 2014
