Getting his start as a retailer specializing in loudspeaker kits, raw speakers, parts and components, Ed Sullivan has been in the CI channel for 34 years. His company, Speaker Shop offers high performance AV systems for the music and movie enthusiast. He has been a KEF dealer for since 1977.

How do you rate Universal Wireless System?
10.  The KEF Universal Wireless System is an elegant solution to the problem of not being able to run speaker wire or the customer choosing to not run wire to a remote speaker location. The customer is able to choose a conventional speaker system without being restricted to choosing from a limited offering of wireless self-powered speaker models.

For what types of installations is it best suited?
When installing speakers in older homes where running speaker wire is next to impossible (denying access through walls and floors) the KEF Universal Wireless System is an excellent solution for delivering high quality stereo sound or rear channel surround sound.

What is one feature of the Universal Wireless System that stands out in your projects?
You are not limited to a brand of speakers when using the KEF wireless system. Why? The Universal Wireless System has a real amplifier rated at 50 watts capable of driving a wide range of high quality speaker models.

What features would you like to see changed or added?
I know of no shortcoming with this KEF product.
