Overall, one of the most highly regarded speaker brand in the world.

I bought a pair of KEF C10 speakers in the late '80, and they're with me since then. Worth every penny I paid. So long as there is a solid, wide wall behind them, they are terrific speakers, particularly for classical violin and piano music. They are perhaps not for rock base sound. For rock/Jazz, I turn on JBL monitor speakers anyway. I'm thinking to buy a pair of latest KEF small bookshelf speakers again. Are they still as good as old ones? Appreciate any input.
I have a set of C25 small 6 1/2" 2 way.....got em cheap off of ebay a couple years ago. Sound nice on thier own but I am now running them with a Bose AM subwoofer in my bedroom.....perfect for that and the Bose sub matches up well with them.
Im very fussy and like quality. I also like music to go right through me.
I had a pair of bookshelf C10s when I was 18 years old back in the 1980s, they got THRASHED all day, everyday full blast.They lasted for over 10 years . Friggin amazing sound made the windows vibrate, you wouldn't think the speakers were the size they were.
Absolutely AMAZING quality and loud.
Now im older 30 years later and wealthier I just got me some 150 W floor standing speakers
The new Q floor standing series are even better !! My sound system is better than most the clubs and bars !
I might have to move out to a semi rural location so as not to disturb the nieghbours lol
