Lucyferror, can I just kindly point out that it was people like you in the first place that stopped me posting deals on here. I see nothing has changed much with some people.

As stated, I was in a hurry, but was Google down in my absence?

Bought Q300 as a part of a deal from Richer Sounds along with Marantz CD6005 and PM6005. I've always thought the Q300 were a bnit overpriced at £450 tbh. They do sound good but the floorstanders from the OP's deal should go a bit lower methinks. Does anyone know if RS could potentially price match?

They're so pretty!

Yyy did I said that it's a bad deal? No. I just pointed that website which sells speakers have a poor description.
You are a drama queen

Bargain and heat added! I have some original bookshelf Kef Q1 speakers and love them, lasted me well but last year my 2 year old son put his finger through a tweeter. To my surprise Kef still stock the parts for 10 yr old speakers, so got a replacement for less than 30 quid. Kef customer service is great to coincide with the quality of their speakers.

Just wish I had 400 quid spare right now!

Great deal. I ended up with the monitor audio silver 6 but at this price I would've had these!

I've been running a pair of KEF floorstanders with Uni-Q drivers for 25 years and they still sound great.
Looks like this deal has expired though.

That's what you thought you pointed out. What you actually typed seemed to be a criticism of the post.
Hopefully you can see that now...

For £399 I'd expect a bit more than "decent speakers".

What is it that separates these from other speakers?

Worth mentioning that the other speakers on the range may be discountable too - I picked up this deal just before Christmas and whilst I was in-store (Derby) they were able to throw in a Q200C centre, a Q400B sub and a pair of Q100 rears for round about a grand all in (including the 400s posted here).

Get in there and have a chat!

They do look stunningly simialar to a pair of wharfedales i inherited once ( about 30 years ago)

presumably theres more to it ...

Showing as £6.99!!

Speakers are so subjective and also depend on kit pairings. I went in wanting some B&W 685s but after listening them and these the kefs were much much better to my ears. I ended up with ma silver 6 as they had a more open top end which I preferred, but these sounded great. They were my second choice.

They're £699 elsewhere

Looking for some new speakers wondering what best out of these or logitech?
I think these if you have a nice big amp. X)

Bargain, I'll take 500 of them please.

That's what you thought you pointed out.



Not convinced.

So that's what separates them from the same speakers purchased elsewhere... what separates these from other speakers?

You would have to listen to them to determine that yourself.

Anyone have thoughts for comparing these with the Tannoy Revolution DC6T? These being £100 more expensive

Any one know if these are a good pairing with a Roksan Kandy K2 amp? Or any suggestions for a good speaker pairing?

I also have a set of Q1's and a Q9c centre in the loft, The Q1's are great, If they are positioned in the right place, Need to go in a corner, And are very fussy about which corner, Or they have no Bass what so ever, But still use a set of Q2dS surround speaker which are fantastic, These at 500 quid thou are a proper bargain.

Sound quality and build quality is what will separate cheap speakers and more expensive speakers.
I would think that would be quite obvious,but tbh I think you are just posting to moan about the price as why would you say OTHER SPEAKERS ? most people would actually say why are these better than ??? (Insert brand and model number here) Speakers

Up at 699 now

The point should be obvious, these sell at £699 therefore your question is "for £699 originally, I'd expect a bit more than decent speakers". Check reviews online and I'd never buy any speakers unless I'd auditioned them first.

Just sold my Q series speakers as my wife she wanted the lounge back. I loved them to bits - sound quality was amazing at a price that was realistic at the time. Seems like a good deal to me and Kef are a good strong brand with a amazing history of quality speakers/

Good value for money for new floor standing speakers. Bit muddy bass though and midrange isn't great. RRP is over the top (better off with B&W 684 at that price).

£399 has been the standard Superfi price (Kef did them a special batch as the Q500 wasn't selling).

£399 is not much to pay for a pair of "decent speakers" In fact it is rather cheap. I have always gone for speakers around the £1000 range. But times are not as affluent at present so I am alway on the look out for a good deal. Kef have an excellent reputation and to be honest this deal looks like an absolute bargain. Great find.
