Kef Blade Two Special edition Floorstanding Speakers. Immaculate condition only two very small nicks and they are only visible from very close up. Work perfect, just about ran in with about 80 hours of use on them. Includes boxes and all accessories.With the four sophisticated bass drivers 165mm/96.5-in. For Blade Two configured so that their combined acoustic centre occupies exactly the same point in space as that of the Uni-Q HF/MF array so the sound appears to emanate from a single, flawlessly coherent source. Sculptural and acoustically inert, the slender parabolic enclosures are engineered never to interfere with the purity of the output. Inside, you find ingenious new venting, bracing and wave management technologies. Every component operates so comfortably within its performance envelope that you experience noticeably more precise imaging than is possible with conventional speakers.
Just as KEF's philosophy has always been to innovate in pursuit of the most accurate and realistic sound, Blade speakers are about perfecting a groundbreaking concept to delight people who really love music. Whatever your taste, Blade is what all great design aspires to: being the best they can possibly be. KEF Blade Two At A Glance.Like listening to one voice rather than many, sound from a single source is inherently clearer. Not only are the acoustic centres of the HF and MF drivers in the Blade & Blade Two Uni-Q array coincident, but the four LF drivers, 225mm/9-in. For Blade, or 165mm/6.5-in. For Blade Two are mounted symmetrically equidistant from it so that their acoustic centres occupy exactly the same point in space. This single apparent source configuration is what makes the Blade & Blade Two so gratifyingly coherent across the frequency range, with noticeably more precise imaging than is possible from any conventional speaker.
What you hear sounds as if its being performed live right in front of you. To avoid dissipating the energy of such potent bass drivers in exciting the cabinet (and thereby generating resonance, especially at high volume), the large kinetic forces involved are cancelled out by mounting the LF drivers rigidly together, back-to-back.
By minimising cabinet colouration, this highly effective configuration partly accounts for the Blade & Blade Twos natural-sounding and engagingly musical performance. The twinned pairs of bass drivers are mounted in discrete chambers separated by an internal partition. By increasing the frequency of any internal standing waves to way beyond the crossover point, this reduces the need for damping material (which can otherwise impair bass quality). Nothing has been overlooked in the quest for the ultimate clarity, right across the frequency range.
With speakers as ambitious as the Blade & Blade Two, short cuts are out of the question. Everything has to be as right as it can possibly be. Two pairs of the finest audiophile quality WBT connectors allow bi-wiring or bi-amping to optimise the retrieval of low level detail in the music. The simple low order crossovers specified for both Blade & Blade Two employ the best components available, carefully selected by a rigorous auditioning process so that every part of the signal path is fine-tuned for maximum clarity.The patented screw-in linking plugs are to full audiophile specification (as well as simplifying set-up by eliminating fiddly wiring links). All the crossover components are individually wired by hand rather than mounted on a conventional printed circuit board. As well as being more environment-friendly, this optimises both reliability and sound quality by assuring the cleanest possible signal transmission.
