FrontRunners: A Cut Above

    Three years after its debut as a concept, the KEF Blade loudspeaker (www.kef.com) has arrived in production form. The speaker’s "Single Apparent Source" rel="nofollow" technology pairs four side-firing woofers with KEF’s proprietary Uni-Q midrange-tweeter array to produce music that sounds exceptionally coherent and lifelike, as though it is coming from a single point in space. The $30,000-per-pair Blade’s glass-reinforced composite cabinet minimizes resonances, distortion, and image-blurring reflections. The cabinet comes in white, black, or an array of colors from Racing Blue to Orange Sorbet.
