Q950 Floorstanding Speaker
Flagship two-and-a-half-way floorstander
With a big bass driver, twin ABRs and Uni-Q driver array the Q950 floorstander can deliver music and cinema in full effect.
Pairing KEF's signature Uni-Q midrange and treble driver with a 200mm (8 inches) long-throw bass driver and two matching ABRs brings high resolution sound with extraordinary depth and clarity.
Priced as a SINGLE speaker, please add two to your cart.
Magnetic grilles sold separately.
A new cone structure improves midrange clarity and an enhanced Auxiliary Bass Radiator (ABR) with a new surround and rear suspension enhances bass quality.
Musical NirvanaI am an economically constrained audiophile. That is to say that I can recognize good quality sound but my purchasing is restricted by my financial limitations.
This is the very first time that you will see a review of this amplifier paired with these particular speakers anywhere.
Ah well, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
And what a gamble it was.....and I hit the jackpot!
I have been on the hunt for a nice stereo system since I was 21 years of age.
At 67, I can unreservedly state that I have finally achieved auditory Nirvana!
Oh! Where do I begin?......
The NAD C388 is rated for a conservative continuous power output of 150 Watts per channel at 8 Ohms of impedance. Whilst the KEF Q950 speakers are a perfect match, rated for an amplifier between 15 and 200 Watts. My newly acquired speakers have finally met and married the perfect amplifier.
Those who are in the market for, or already own this remarkable amplifier have no idea what lies in wait for them, until they pair it up with these wonderfully capable speakers. These KEF Q950s are worth every hard earned penny I have expended on them.
The rich velvet-smooth bass (from what reviews that I have read, the lack of bass is a common but incorrect complaint of the NAD C388 Amplifier. It just requires good speakers) and soprano type treble and the alto like mid range conspire to give you a musical experience that is heavenly.
In fact bass and treble had to be turned down to “flat” and the now utterly redundant sub woofer, disconnected!
I can without reservation, absolutely recommend the marriage between a NAD C388 Amplifier and a set of KEF Q950 English speakers.
If you like me, love listening to distortion free music of any type at any volume, look no further.

|Q950 Loudspeaker Review - Hi-Def Digest|
|"I adore the Q950 towers. They are, quite honestly, the best KEF Q Series speakers ever made, blending clear, transparent vocal tones and room-pressurizing bass. They destroy the capabilities of the old iQ9 towers and should receive an honorary membership to the KEF R Series because they sound a lot more expensive than $1,800/pair.”|
