Movie stars don't come more charismatic than this: eloquent, engrossing and disarmingly natural. Together with breathtaking sonic accuracy and spatial precision, these are the qualities a great centre channel speaker aspires to - and The KEF Reference Model 204/2c centre speaker has them all. Dialogue and vocals acquire spine-tingling immediacy and on-screen action becomes astonishingly real.
The KEF Reference Model 204/2c centre speaker features KEF's latest Uni-Q® driver array is the most natural-sounding yet. The tweeter at the centre of the midrange cone now has a vented three-magnet motor system and a unique new braced dome, creating a perfectly time-aligned point source whose directivity is optimised by the reprofiled cone. As a result, dispersion is wider than ever. With the KEF Reference Model 204/2c centre speaker Power response is more uniform. Multi-channel imaging is even more stable - and stunningly realistic. The new Uni-Q® array is so perfectly attuned to reproducing the human voice that vocals acquire previously unheard-of definition. The improved balance between direct sound, early room reflections and the reverberant field delivers an extraordinarily realistic performance without losing any of the Uni-Q benefits of precise imaging, spaciousness and unconstrained vertical response.
The KEF Reference Model 204/2c centre speaker features the latest Reference Series crossovers which are computer-modelled to optimise integration. The boards are decoupled to isolate them from cabinet vibration and internal acoustic pressures, and three-tier construction eliminates crosstalk. High saturation iron core inductors are used for the bass sections, with more linear air-cored inductors elsewhere; bipolar capacitors for low frequencies, with very low loss polypropylene capacitors for the upper ranges. Wire-wound resistors minimise compression and maximise linearity.
The KEF Reference Model 204/2c centre speaker have been precision engineered to eliminate every unwanted vibration, Reference Series cabinets are works of art in themselves. Massive internal bracing tailors the volume of each enclosure to the exact parameters of its drive unit. Extensive mechanical and acoustic damping, together with independent driver loading and KEF's decoupling techniques, creates inert enclosures that eradicate any vestigial panel resonance, standing waves, stray reflections or box colourations.
