Best desktop speakers ever made. It has been a long wait but at last a pair of speakers that are genuinely scaled down hifi to use with a mac. They are so good i can even use them to balance tracks when mastering on logic. Supplemented by a subwoofer to add a little heft to the bottom octave they are simply stunning. I also have for my main system the kef ls50 and the similarities are there to hear. Clearly the ls50 scales up a bigger soundstage simply because they are bigger and several feet away from the listening position, but what matters to me with the eggs is the integrity of the sound, a believable and deep soundstage and an undeniable sense of energy and mojo. These are not sterile and flat sounding and the tweeters genuinely have an extended response. Headbangers might not like them because they do not go hugely loud and completely lack the cursed upper bass boom, bang and grind that so many speakers suffer from. I am now considering another pair to use with the tv.

So i was expecting the kef’s not be to able to match them set up is easy as pie. I didn’t buy these from amazon, preferring to buy them in person at my local independent hi if store. I bought them primarily as a second listening source and tv connection in my downstairs sitting room when i can’t use the main hi to in the lounge. The set up in the lounge cost around £1000 about 10 years ago, so i was expecting the kef’s not be to able to match themset up is easy as pie, unbox, connect power and wires, search for kef egg on bluetooth, select and go. What i wasn’t expecting was a breathtaking sound that beats a £1000 set up. They don’t go down that low bass wise so for films you may need to get a subwoofer, and plug in, but for music the bass is reasonable but incredibly punchy and tight. The main delight is the transparency and clarity of the mid and upper end. It’s very bright without being brash or trebly, and provides an insight to the music i have yet to hear on anything i’ve owned. Playing something well recorded and they provide a sumptuous sound stage that is hard to describe without underselling these speakers. Even stodgy 80’s recordings sound vibrant and alive.

These kef speakers sounds great if you compare them with a pair of cheap low end 2. 0 desktop setup, but not at all against their competition at this price point. Yes, the soundstage is very good, with nice mids and the treble offering very crisp detail (but a bit too bright and overemphasized sometimes though. )but the bass is very dissapointing even for this woofer size. It lacks presence, definition and even control, showing an ugly overboost at 140hzi had the opportunity to compare this speakers vs audioengine2, b&w mm-1 and ik iloud micro monitori think the b&w mm-1 are the best with a more controled, detailed and balanced sound. The audioengine2 are cheaper and maybe offers the better value for the price. The ik has a decent overall sound featuring the best bass performance by far, goes very loud and are the best suited for use with games or movies without adding a subwoofer. Definitely, this product offers interesting connectivity options (bluethooth, optical, usb. ) but regarding to audio quality, there are better options for the price.

KEF EGG Wireless Digital Music System – Blue : Not good for wireless pc use (despite being advertised as such). Unfortunately these speakers don’t do what they say on the tin. They are heavily touted as wireless (bluetooth) and for use with laptops (as shown on the kef website). As many of the new laptops have less usb ports now this is a great option – if it worked. However, they regularly turn themselves into standby mode (not at set times either, just when they feel like it, it seems) and often don’t reconnect to the laptop when you turn them back on. So you have to go through the faf of getting them recognised and connected again. Also, if you run itunes whilst they are off, it brings up an audio error warning (as it can’t detect the speakers). If you then turn them on the program crashes, so you have to shut it down, make sure the speakers are on, and then run the program again. I saw another reviewer had the same problem and received a driver update from kef which turned off the auto standby feature and solved most of the problem. Ok, not great to buy an expensive product that doesn’t do what it should but at least it can be easily overcome i hoped.

Worse, the cable that connects the two speakers in. Bought to replace aging soundsticks. Sound quality – that everyone raves about – i found to be merely adequate. This thing really needs a sub. Worse, the cable that connects the two speakers in limited in length and that restricts where they can be placed (i have a multiple monitor setup so space is restricted). They are bulkier than the soundsticks. One end is fixed, the other plugs into the left-hand speaker. But perhaps the biggest disappointment was that they just don’t have enough bass and they’re not loud enough. I’m no audiophile but would be willing to pay for quality. But in this case just for music playback on a mac, adding the cost of a sub makes it just too much of a stretch.

Built-in software is a disaster. . The sound of the speakers is great, but they are useless to me. After getting home from the retailer and plugging them into my desktop, i found that they turn themselves off after a short period of no sound signal. I use my desktop for meditation sessions of half an hour and use a little script for that – there’s the sound of a bell as the start signal and after 30 minutes there’s supposed to be forest sounds to mark the end of the session. The egg turns itself off after 15 minutes thoughmy desktop is also my alarm clock to get up in the morning with a music playlist i want at that time – also not possible because of this. I wish the seller in the shop had told me about this ‘feature’, because i would not have bought themif keg would provide a way to bypass the software that turns off the speakers it would be acceptable, but since they don’t, i will have to bring ’em back to the shop. Exe file that made the bypass, so adding two stars to my review now, form 2 to 4 in total :-).

Sound quality meets connectivity meets design finally someone did it. I usually don’t do many reviews but this time i have to pay respect to those beauties. I read 5 stars rating everywhere (but those guys are always sponsored), i knew kef quality so i thought i would give it a go…boom: finally someone has cracked the next generation hifi. Forget sono etc… that was the first thing i thought when i first listen to the egg.It simply ticks all the boxes:- sound quality: i make my own music and my standard is studio speakers (£2000 set). Beautiful: detailed highs and punchy mids. For me it’s the active technology: you get handpicked digital to analog converter linked to 2*25w amps almost directly connected to the speakers. That means limited filtering which makes quality lose, no trying to match electronics at home (kef engineers have done it for me and i believe they are way more qualified than me), no search for cables, no 5 different power cables and associated spaghetti etc…- integration: this tweeter and coaxial setup is magic. You have negligible loss of details while you move in the room. All my speaker have been directional. That means if you don’t seat in the sweet spot you’re losing details (usually high frequency). – connectivity: optical in (most tv, players have this as standards). Usb for pc (or raspberry pi if you feel dyi). Auxiliary cable in for the wired… you can switch at a touch of the remote. Here’s 2016- beautiful design: first time my wife is happy with the design of any speaker i ever had. Usually a pain to make her accept the presence of my massive speaker in the family room. I even get compliments from visitors all the time. I recommend the white version which blends in with white walls and has a nice matt finish (no finger prints). The speaker grille and speakers in general are sturdy enough that my toddler is no danger to them and vice versa. – size: preamp, 50w, quality dac 11. 5cm woofers, all hidden in a designer 27*13cm speakers…impressivea few years ago to get the same quality you would have needed high market player/preamp/amp/cables (£1500 minimum for quality). So sure they cost a bit but for the quality you get and the equivalent traditional equipment needed, it’s a bargainthey are three things i would improve: 1)auto detection of source 2)longer inter speaker cable 3) wifi streaming over bluetooth as those speaker deserve better quality (anyway a £30 pound chromecast audio plugged by the kef optical cable will solve this while having the google streamlined ease of use).

I had the ruark desktop speakers which won 2014 whathifi awards and i am so glad that i upgraded to these. The difference in quality is clear. They won 2015 what hifi awards for a good reason. Love them and i am extremely particular about the quality of tech i buy.

This review is mainly for the amazon warehouse deal which i hope not to use again on electrical or complex goods. Unfortunately stopped working after less than 3 months. Sound pretty good – obviously when fed good quality files or feeds. Editthe repairs were covered by the manufacturers 2 year warranty and was fixed for free labour and parts (heavy so about £26 in postal charges).

Day after recommendation by hi fi specialist they are great got the kef subwoofer for added bass and these. Got these the next day after recommendation by hi fi specialist they are great got the kef subwoofer for added bass and these have recently won desktop what hifi award so very pleased great for music films and games.

Sounds great i guess with high-resolution audio/music files and games seem. For windows 10 desktop use:in order to stop the speakers from going in to auto sleep mode. Contact kef directly and they’ll supply drivers that enable/disable this feature. Sounds great i guess with high-resolution audio/music files and games seem a bit better as they have an integrated dac/amp for 24bit/96khz. [old reviewtwo stars because they power off (well the usb stops) in such a short time that if you are using them while browsing, watch a video, read several comments and then decide to watch another video they have already switched off. You then either have to switch them on with the remote or button. So for pc they are annoying to use. ]

AV Link 2×4 Matrix Selector Switch : Perfect accessory

Despite previous comments on the difficulty with the smallness of the terminals, i found it quite easy to set up with the aid of a small screwdriver, a pair of reading specs and a good light.

I bought this unit two years argo and had no problems with it i’ve got ceiling speakers all over the house and play my sonos conect through it i also see people having problems wiring this up i used the speaker pins just cut them down a bit you can connect a descent size wire into them like i have hope this helps.

AV Link 2×4 Matrix Selector Switch with Volume Controls for Speaker

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Enables four pairs of speakers to be connected to two separate amplifiers
  • Heavy-duty push-buttons
  • Individual volume controls with black aluminium finish
  • Designed for 4-16 ohms speakers

Its early day yet but i honestly cant fault this audio matrix switch. I was a bit fearful about buying it because it was half the price of others. I have now got total control over 4 different zones (audio) i have 2 sky boxes, 1 dvd player, and 1 cd player connected to my amp and the amp is connected to the matrix box and can have different sounds coming thru my speakers. I have total control over the volume to each set of speakers. The only con and its not really a con is the volume can only go up or down in steps,if you want to control the volume on different speakers the i can highly recommend this one.

Perfect, did exactly what the client required.

Looks ideal and seems to work exactly as i wanted it to but only just connected it so early days.

AV Link 2×4 Matrix Selector Switch with Volume Controls for Speaker : [[asin:b004d8rvqg 4 pairs of 35w ceiling speakers with amplifier, speakers & 100m cable]a good unit spoilt by too small terminals ,have you watched a telephone engineer working on a junction box in thestreet, this is the same nightmare you have wiring to the terminals on this otherwise well built good looking speakerwswitch box,if you have monster cable you will never use them with this gadget. These terminals are really suitableonly for bell wire,even one cm strand loose wire will shorten out your speakers,i managed to complete the jobwith amazon speaker cable ,stripping the ends of the cables very short, even then i got one or two rogue strandsthat you must deal with, the next size up in terminals would have given the unit full five stars and nil criticism.

This does a very good job of handling 4 pairs of speakers and 2 inputs, even with little stickers for the on/off button for each channel which can be used to show what room it relates to. Turning on the other speaker channels doesn’t noticeably reduce the volumen of exisiting ones. However one important thing to note is that this is note a powered unit and will not really amplify the input.

Pure UK PURE Chronos CD Series II : What a great bit of kit !!

Easy to operate, well packaged and efficient delivery.

We bought this for our granddaughter because she needed a small cd/radio for her bedside table that also sounded good. This chronos has lived up to our expectations. For such a small unit it has very good sound. It is easy to use and the dab reception is good. Our granddaughter is very pleased.

Have bought this make before was very satified so went with the same make again,it is very compact and that suites ourrequirements.

Good radio – nice wake-up touches. . We have both – the chronos cd on one side of the bed and a chronos ipod-dock-thingy on the other side. Just swap remotes with your partner and you are in for some serious bedtime harmony. This radio has excellent tonal quality and the cd unit appears to be almost built for falling alseep to bbc spoken word cds. I haven’t owned a huge amount of radio-alarm clocks in my life. Changing the radio alarm clock is a bit of a life changing event, but this one was welcomed with open arms after a disastrous experience with the awful lg rugby ball. The menus are simple, set-up in under five minutes and (again) that lovely sound quality that you tend to associate with pure. I like the gently persuasive tone-based alarm that at first suggests that you wake up and soon enough absolutely insists. It is also the first time that i have owned a radio alarm that has the most obvious setting in the world – only do it on weekdays. One drawback – what’s the point of the usb ‘powerport’?.

Great radio – still works after over a year.

PURE Chronos CD Series II, DAB/FM/CD Stereo Clock Radio – Black : I do not like having clutter on my kitchen worktops and had been looking for a compact cd player and radio for some time. I am very pleased with this as it tucks away in the corner of my windowsill perfectly. It is easy to use,the digital radio is excellent,cd player has good sound quality and it looks great.

I was looking for something small with the dab radio and even after reading the reviews of which some weren’t great i decided to go ahead and buy this. Looks great tucked in the corner and doesn’t take up all the room like my last one. The cd is a bit noisy so if you want it for quietly dropping off to sleep with low volume i wouldn’t recommend it. Slightly disappointed at this but not a major problem.

Pure chronos cd alarm dab stereo clock radio. This was my chosen christmas gift from my husband as i already had recently bought a pure evoke dab radio for the kitchen and i love the quality. The chronos does not disappoint. I particularly use and enjoy the sleep function and all aspects of the radio and cd perform very well with excellent sound quality. It is very neat and doesn’t take up much room on the bedside cabinet. The lcd display backlight level is adjustable and is not too bright in a darkened room while being easily visible. All in all, i’m very pleased with this item and would recommend it.

We have the white version of this also and find them excellent quality. No need to set clocks ever again, it’s automatic. Prefer this series 2 to the series 1 version.

Great product, good price does everything we needed and liked the time display easy to see at night, good sound and reception very quiet cd player so very happy with everything.

Very easy to use but can sound a little stretched if. Purchased for my mother in law. Very easy to use but can sound a little stretched if the volume is turned up.

Everything i wanted in such a device. I have been using this device for a few days, since buying it new from amazon, and have to say i am very impressed. It is easy to use out of the box (self-tunes, sets the clock etc), and i found the use of buttons very intuitive (no need to read the manual). My existing clock radio – probably 12 years old now, was starting to hum so loud, that it was waking me up. I cannot say i have heard any humming from this device at all. I also love the dimming display, based on the ambient light in the room. It means that when i wake at 2:00am, and want to know what the time is, my eyes are no longer burned out, as they used to be. The provision of a usb charging port is inspired (my phone charges off usb), and as i am not an iphone/ipod user, a dock limiting me to such devices really is of no interest whatsoever. Finally, a lot has been made about the noise of the cd player, when it’s spinning the disk. It is audible, which is a shame (for something of this price), but not so loud that i consider the device spoiled.

Had a black one before i like this white one – goes better with my colour scheme.

Brilliant, very pleased and as describedwould recommend.

VQ Retro Mini DAB & DAB – Great Retro radio

Lovely sound and quality – but it does get through batteries very quickly.

Looks great and has excellent sound quality. This is a very neat little dab radio which is packed with features and looks so good. It is really well made and has a lovely solid retro feel. The colour is amazing, really rich and vibrant. I have only used it whilst plugged into the mains, but it can be battery operated. Works well as an fm or via bluetooth, dab seems a bit unreliable sometimes but that seems to be par for the course.

Works a treat, daughter loves it and does what it says, we had 2 other makes before this one that stopped working within days so this is worth the extra bit of money.

I absolutely adore this radio. It’s amazinggreat quality, easily pairs up to my iphone.

Love this radio, looks so stylish and retro. Sound is good, although i’ve noticed when the back for the batteries is on the sound is muffled. When i took the cover off the sound is clear.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great compct radio
  • Fantastic little radio. Looks great and has excellent sound quality
  • Brilliant Radio well done VQ

Lovely look and great function. Lovely vintage style, looks great on my bedside table.

Super cute and super sound. . Looks stylish, sounds great and as my second vq radio purchase, i have been very pleased so far. Easy to preset stations and i love how this looks in my bedroom. Only drawback (which is nothing to do with vq) is that this has come down £6 in price in a day since i ordered it from amazon.

Brilliant radio well done vq. Bought this radio for my bedside (i’m 68) brilliant little radio looks good sounds excellent very pleased with it, easy to set up and love the colour too, alarm sound is excellent and i like being able to see the clock at night even without glasses, bonus. Would recommend to anyone well done vq.

This radio does exactly what it says at a really good price.

This is in the bathroom so i had to get some rechargeable batteries. But they last for ages before needing charging. Good quality sound easy button controls on front.

Used in our kitchen provides enough volume and all functions work well,looks good and is cheaper than the roberts alternative.

Brought this as gift it’s so prettythe item comes with great instructions easy to understandglad i bought this my daughter will love it.

Philips FX10/12 Mini Hi-Fi System : The only other negative is the remote which is very poor quality and has a problem with input lagg

The only other destructive is the remote which is really poor top quality and has a trouble with input lagg. Warningdespite the vendor boldly stating that they only ship to the united kingdom mainland. This system arrived today with a european plug and ***requires an adapter*** in order for it to run on our electrical system. You will also call for a established of aux cables as they are also not equipped. The only other negative is the remote which is extremely very poor good quality and has a difficulty with enter lagg. Apart from that the system works perfectly, it is quite effortless to stream new music from any variety of products, it’s also a great deal bigger than i envisioned. I would like to advise to the seller that they **update the description** as for approximately £250 it really should operate straight out of the box.

Great piece of package at a great price. I don’t askt far too a great deal from and it serves me quite perfectly.

Eu plug is bothersome but the bass is nice and crisp.

It appears there is yet another challenge with this hi fi, there is a eco manner developed into the system that you are unable to change off, right after 15 minutes of inactivity the system tuns off and you have to change the system back again on and set the volume back to what it was, this eco manner comes about even though looking at television set or although gaming via aux in, receiving frustrated due to the fact i are not able to transform this characteristic off, in the handbook it says that you can change it off for 15 minutes and then eco mode is quickly turned back on yet again, who on earth considered this was a great idea?.And why set a attribute to transform it off only to set it again on all over again?.

Good benefit mini system, and simple to use. Fashion: unusual, a little weird, but has it truly is own attraction (if you like the house-age search, and can forgive a number of obvious type faux pas). five/10 (great)ergonomics: straightforward, straightforward, basic – just how l like it. Couldn’t really question for a more user pleasant item – ideal for the technically challenged, like myself. (10/ten) (outstanding)seem: loud, impressive and a lot of bass. The deficiency of treble adjustment and consumer manipulation, make it to some degree confined for alĺ tunes forms. But you will find no denying it the seem good quality is we are going to earlier mentioned expectation for the cost category, and it is capable of picking up all the highs, mids and lows relatively well. (nine/ten) (excellent)capabilities: has all the right bare necessities for the present day person bt, cd, fm tuner, and usb. Nonetheless, sound is minimal to bass adjustment and a many presets, (rock, pop, samba, jazz and techno) and almost nothing else.

Philips FX10/12 Mini Hi-Fi System with Bluetooth – Black : A great piece of kit at an even better price. A great piece of kit at an even better price. Clear vocals and a great punch on the bass. For a small bookshelf stereo, this is mighty fine.

Definitely pleasant audio system, sound excellent is wonderful and bass is great. The only bothersome factor is the flickering gentle, particularly troublesome when listening to songs or participating in games in the dim home. Even so, it can be turned off making use of a distant but there is no button for the light-weight on the unit itself.

VQ Bardot DAB & DAB – I love it. Sounds good

The sound is good, but i expected a higher quality sound. I had it difficult to connect to my phone. The sound is good, but i expected a higher quality sound. I am sure you can get better for the price. It has a very good appearance.

Slick, stylish and user friendly. The sound quality for size is phenomenal, the build is robust and it is so nice to be able to bluetooth stuff from my tablet to the kitchen where it has made a new home on the table.

Husbands xmas present he loves it. Here are the specifications for the VQ Bardot DAB & DAB:

Great bit of kit, not the loudest but great for kitchen or conservatory.

I really like the styling on this radio, my only slight niggle being that the handle does not swivel out of the way of the operating buttons. When i first tuned it, the radio only seemed to show a small number of dab stations. I panicked at the thought of being without r4 and r4xtra, but re-read the instructions, moved the radio slightly, rebooted and up popped 96 additional channels. The sound quality is very good for a radio of its size.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • This radio certainly looks good. Radio reception is just ok (could be better
  • so chic great sound mines for my kitchen love the look
  • An excellent multi-functional DAB radio

I really enjoy this product. It is easy to use and has great functionality. The sound quality is good and the size is great for use around the house. Better than most other dab products i have used over the last 15 years. The bluetooth function has been more used than i first thought it would be and you can stream any station through the likes of tunein etc. Overall a great piece of kit.

Thanks for a great service but this was bought as a present so. Thanks for a great service but this was bought as a present so i dont know much about it but i know my daughter in law is pleased with it so that all good.

A class product which oozes style. . First impressed when i received this radio were wow, lovely designed box for the view quest bardot radio. Taking the radio from the box my wow’s kept coming, design is very nice, i’ve worked in the consumer electronics industry for near to 30 years and have seen 1000’s of radio’s, roberts has always remained a favorite but i do think my bardot inches a head for style. The radio is covered in what i guess is a leather type material a stitched handle which shouts quality. My only grumble is the handle is over the controls and doesn’t move to the side to gain easy access, the controls are not hard to get to but not a perfect set up, that’s my only moan. Sound which is always the most important is very good, rich and engaging, i always have the radio on during the morning and it was a pleasure to have the bardot on. I didn’t have any issues with pairing up my samsung galaxy s4 or my ipod to the bluetooth found and connected with ease, you can track control via the bardot which still amazes my how advanced technology has moved on. There are lots of radio’s on the market, pure, roberts are two of the well know brands, this is my first view quest product and an really impressed, its sits proudly in my newly fitted kitchen and looks superb. If your after a dab with the extra features then i wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this radio, a class product which oozes style.

Perfect addition to our home. Lovely looking, beautiful tone, great easy use functions. Great talking point with visitors, very happy with this piece of kit.

Really love this item it’s stylish and works well for my kitchen. Doesn’t blast out the sound which is good for me as the sound is clear and can be loud enough. Very easy to use and to sync with various blue tooth devices. If it had a rechargeable battery i’d give it 100%but if we go camping i can still put regular batteries in, i just would of moved it more from room to room.

Great little boom box for an afternoon picnic and in the kitchen love it.

Great dab radio good sound and easy to use.
