New CI speakers from KEF17 January 2011
Three new ‘round’ in-wall/ceiling speakers have been added to KEF’s range of Custom Installation (Ci) products.
Available now, the new products are the Ci160R, Ci160CRDS and Ci160QR. Like other KEF Ci Series products, the speakers are said to exemplify the company’s CI message of ‘hide your speakers, not your sound.’
Features of these latest models include Ultra-Thin Bezel (UTBTM) designs for the ‘slimmest possible visible rim’ around the speaker, and – in the Ci160CR and Ci160CRDS – asymmetric-baffle tweeter technology for smooth off-axis response.
In addition, Ci160CRDS includes a Dual Stereo feature that allows a stereo signal to be reproduced from locations that have room for only one speaker assembly. A straightforward screw-down clamping system with moisture-resistant fixings allows users to benefit from this feature in space-conscious environments like bathrooms.
