KEF R50 Dolby Atmos Height Speakers

The KEF R50 is designed to sit above freestanding or wall-mounted home theatre satellite speakers to add the all-important vertical sound dimension that allows you to enjoy at home the staggeringly realistic 3D sound image that Dolby Atmos creates in cinemas.

The R50's have been constructed around KEF’s latest and most sophisticated ‘sit anywhere’ Uni-Q driver array, with a 1-inch vented aluminium tweeter at the centre of a potent 5.25-inch bass/mid driver.

This driver beams the sound upwards reflecting it off the ceiling to add height information so that you are enveloped in a breathtakingly precise multidimensional soundscape where each sound source moves as it does in real life.
