KEF X300AW Speakers

Wireless audiophile monitors

The $999-suggested X300AW is a wireless version of KEF’s powered $799 X300A speaker pair, which plays back music from PCs via USB connection. The wireless X300AW at a targeted $999 features built-in Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, Apple AirPlay, and DLNA 1.5 to stream music wirelessly from Apple and Android mobile devices and from PCs.

The two-way biamplified system, targeted to ship in November, also features 96kHz/24-bit DACs and Class AB amps in each speaker enclosure. Each speaker is biamplified, with a 50-watt amp driving the woofer and 20-watt amp driving the tweeter.

The drivers consist of a 5.25-inch magnesium-alloy woofer with concentrically mounted 1-inch vented aluminum-dome tweeter with tangerine waveguide to widen the stereo sweet spot. The 11 by 7.1 by 9.6-inch speakers deliver 58Hz-28kHz frequency response +/-3dB and 104dB peak SPL.
