KEF Cresta2 Speakers
Advantages: great sound, excellent finish, good price
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 powerful amplifier will drive them quite happily. They are available in two finishes, the black colour as illustrated above in the picture and the natural wood finish which is the finish I chose. For £150 the speakers look more expensive than they are and mounted onto a classy set of speaker stands look good in the living room as a piece of furniture.
The speakers are biwirable, which means you can use 2 lots of speaker cable for better sound quality. Unfortunately I only had regular speaker cable so used the supplied bindig posts so can not comment if biwirring would have improved the sound quality further.
Overall I was extremely pleased with these speakers. They looked classy, sounded great and were very reasonably priced and they are still going strong to this day!
Summary: great little speakers at a cracking price
