    We don't have an overall KEF thread here... Just threads for specific models like the LS50 and 107... And posting in those seems like thread jacking.

    So I guess I'll start one. I love this brand. Post pics of your KEFs! :thmbsp:

    Good idea :)

    I've owned Kef 107s, 104/2s and 103/3s in the past. Also LS50s. I like my Kef - I kinda miss some of them, but they were excellent to be able to live with for a while.

    Glad I saw this thread. I am contemplating buying a pair of C75's. I understand they are not top of the line, but the price is real good, I love the look and the form factor. Going to check them out tomorrow.

    My stacked Coda 8's. I can't believe I've already owned the first pair for 18 years.

    Sorry about the mess, it was the maid's day off.

    Crossovers have been replenished otherwise they are completely original and aside from a few marks on the top of the cabs they are in perfect physical and working condition. Not bad for a 40 year old bit of kit.

    Pair of 104/2 speaks circa '86 and a pair of 104aB circa '77. Too lazy to take & post pix but you all know the appearance of these things. The 104/2 pair have a particularly nice(ly) figured rosewood veneer finish. The 104aB's a rather unispired oak veneer but they got the killer T-27 tweets (originals!) that still work perfectly. I think every day that the T-33 tweets @ the 104/2 pair will "dry" and fail, but they're still kickin' it after (almost) daily use going on 29 years. Never got 'round to integrating The Cube @ the 104/2 array.

    Love your photo! The Warriors! This movie never gets tiring! And always leaves me pumped up with adrenaline!

    I have the Concerto and 105s, and have had 104aB and 104/2 both in teak. I have yet to hear a Kef I didn't like, but the Concerto have high WAF in my house, and the 105s are just awesome! All of them love lots of current!

    Photos to come

    I have a pair of 105/2's and a pair of 107's in transit.

    Let me also add that I LOVE THE WARRIORS! I could watch it a million times. Kudos to the baseball furies!

    Found this pair of 104/2's this summer. So far I have replaced the donut rings and the ferrofluid in the T-33's. They sing.

    A Warriors Appreciation Society thread is looming; if so, we should start it @ the Movies & TV Forums. My avatar is of course is the Fury Leader, played by a stuntman, not an actor, @ The Warriors film. His first name is Jerry; I don't recall his surname @ the moment.

    I don't have much, just these. 105s circa 1978. I have the original brochure, receipt, all that stuff. Need better pictures for sure!

    Not much?
    An outstanding pair of speakers! Look to be in good cosmetic shape also.
    Feed them with some juice and they'll rock with the best of them!
    Happy listening!
