Randall said: The KEF Reference 205/2 is a well-rounded, lovely-looking loudspeaker that packs a lot of technology into its glossy cabinet -- it’s a true audio gem that you must hear for yourself.


Read the SoundStage! Hi-Fi review.

The gist: Much more technology -- and sound quality -- than is found in most loudspeakers.
