KEF along with authorized Blade dealer, House of Stereo, to give show attendees unique demo of world’s first Single Apparent Source Loudspeaker
Marlboro, N.J. – February 28, 2012 – KEF, the renowned manufacturer of innovative, reference-quality loudspeakers, will partner with Jacksonville-based dealer, House of Stereo, to present attendees to Audio Expo North America (AXPONA) 2012, held March 9-11 at the OMNI Hotel in Jacksonville, Fla., with a unique demo of KEF Blade, the world’s first single apparent source loudspeaker.
“We look forward to working with the first-class staff at House of Stereo to present attendees to this year’s AXPONA show with an up-close and personal listening experience of a truly one-of-a-kind loudspeaker, KEF Blade,” said Alec Chanin, president of KEF America. “Together, KEF and House of Stereo will demonstrate how KEF’s team of engineers have developed a loudspeaker that puts the listener directly in the recording studio, delivering a sound performance unlike no other.
KEF will work with the team from House of Stereo to demonstrate how KEF Blade’s Single Apparent Source technology ensures the entire frequency range of the loudspeaker radiates from one point in space, creating a sound picture that is virtually indistinguishable from a live performance. Attendees will see how KEF Blade is further enhanced by a glass-reinforced composite cabinet that matches the speaker’s high performance sound quality with elegant industrial design.
In addition to KEF Blade, attendees to the House of Stereo demo at AXPONA 2012 will have the opportunity to experience KEF R Series. Featuring many of the same innovations found in KEF Blade, the R Series seeks to make higher-end audiophile standards of sound reproduction more affordable. Attendees to the show will hear how fluent new Uni-Q® driver arrays combine with new bass drivers and several additional innovations to create a rich, spacious sound image of such accuracy that R Series approaches the benchmark standards of KEF’s legendary Reference Series.
KEF and House of Stereo can be found in the Tampa Room at the OMNI Hotel throughout AXPONA 2012.
