4 out of 5 "KEF 105.4"
These are relatively neutral sounding speakers. Smooth mids slight rise in top end relative to R 105.2s. Low end is tight and rolls off a bit at the deepest bass. Performs well with all programme material. The only speakers I have heard that are superior to the KEF reference series are ribbon and planar speakers(e.g. Quad ESLs, Magneplan) but you sacrifice low end with those technologies.
