As part of its 50th anniversary celebration, KEF has introduced ‘KEF 50 Years of Innovation in Sound,’ the definitive study of KEF’s first half century. Co-authored by former KEF engineer Dr. Andrew Watson and audio historian Ken Kessler, the 216-page hardbound book covers the period from KEF’s founding in 1961, through the release of KEF Blade in 2011 in a story told by over 30 KEF employees and associates.
KEF 50 Years of Innovation aggregates thousands of never-before-released printed materials, photos and company records with over 60 hours of interviews.
“This book is a must-have for all audio enthusiasts,” said Alec Chanin, president of KEF America. “KEF has a rich history of product and technology innovation and KEF 50 Years of Innovation in Sound does a tremendous job of documenting our legendary company through the last half century.”
