Well i'm suffering nowadays from something called "audiophilia nervosia" which is a disease that makes me audition a tremendous amount of equipment which I mostly don't need and normally can't afford. My cousins, knowing this, asked my help for the chore in hand: assemble a simple separate system (cd, int. amp, speakers) with a meagre budget that would put them in high part of the lower-fi or even just in at mid-fi. (you see to arrive at true hi-fi point you really have to spend a reaonable amount of cash. Sad but True.) There we went to specialist store to audition some of the lower ranges. That I remember we audition B&W DM302, ... Read the complete review

These speakers cost me £150, but they have since come down in price, and are scarcely available in this country anymore. However, they often come up for sale second hand. They really are excellent speakers, with a great warmth of sound and an excellent range for the price that I paid. I compared them in the shop to a more expensive set by Mission (M71?s) and an even more expensive set of Denon speakers, however, the bass was much more powerful in the KEF models, and the treble seemed sharper than the Denon speakers did, hence my choice. I was rather limited in terms of choice due to my budget at the time (I was 15 with no job) so I did a great deal of research ... Read the complete review

KEF have really struck gold with these beauts. They've managed to pack quality associated with products £50-100 more expensive in to £150 boxes. They've been built with care and with everything in mind. The contours of the cases are scientifically disgned, the cones have been perfectly matched for all-round balance and the case has no tackiness about it (despite the rather deceptive picture). The Cresta 2s really have the ability to cope with any kind of music and not falter. They can display real pace whilst retaining grace and delicate flair. Positioned correctly, they can also give a great presence that defies spaekers of this ... Read the complete review

Don't let the moderate size of the Cresta 2s deceive you. These speakers really do pack punch for their size. Thse amazing speakers one an award in the 2000 What HiFi awards. You can see a better picture of the beautiful cherry coloured casing here http://www.kef.com/kefimages/Cresta2nw.jpg These speakers do look incredibly good. The finish on the casing is excellent and with the leather effect front they do look even better with the grills taken off. Kef have some how managed to create a speaker sounding many times more expensive than the incredibly reasonable £150 being asked at most places. When paired with a nice amplifier ...

I decided to audition the Kef cresta 2 when I started building my first proper hi fi seperates set up. I had read the review in what hifi? which had given then 5 stars and was impressed with the high quality look. Hooked up to my rotel cd player and denon amp I was simply blown away with sound quality. I tried some metallica and an eric bibb cd and the speakers performed superbly from bass heavy thrash metal to beutifully acoustic folk. I was particularly impressed with the quality of the midrange, eric bibbs vocals came across as really immediate, almost as if he were in the room with me. The speakers are rated at 8 ohms and 100 watts so any decent ... Read the complete review
