KEF Adds Stylish High-Gloss Black Finish To Its KEF Home Theatre KHT Speaker Line

New Decor Option Offered on Select KHT Speaker Systems Complements the Look of Latest Flat Panel Displays

MARLBORO, NJ — February 20, 2006 — With more and more home theater enthusiasts demanding that their audio systems create visual sophistication in addition to great sound, KEF proudly introduces a sleek new high-gloss black finish for a number of its speaker systems. The new choice gives a stunning, contemporary look to the wide selection of black flat panel displays available, allowing consumers to experience the KEF sound without compromising on aesthetics. The addition of this new option reinforces the company’s mission to create high-performance audio products that are as beautiful to see as they are to hear. The high-gloss black finish is now available on select systems from the KHT home theatre system lineup.

“Today’s consumers are more design-conscious than ever, and the high-gloss black option gives them a beautiful alternative when choosing a KEF system for their home,” said Len Safhay, director of communications and administration at KEF America. “Our satin silver finish has been very popular, especially among customers with silver flat-panel televisions. Adding gloss black as an option gives them even more flexibility to create the look of a complete system. Since KEF was founded, our products have appealed to every aspect of customers’ tastes, and great style is one of the KEF signatures.”

The choice of high-gloss black finish to KEF’s KHT range is now available on the KEF Home Theatre 9000, 6000, 5000, and the new 3000 series. In addition to all satellites and center channel speakers, complementary stands are also available to create a completely uniform look. The matching PSW3500 and PSW2500 powered subwoofers as part of the systems are also available in the new high-gloss black finish. The new option comes at a small premium over existing KHT models.
