Slim Speaker, Serious Sound


KEF’s revolutionary T Series is in a different league from any low profile speaker you’ve ever heard.
As one of the world’s thinnest high performance home theatre systems, the new T Series combines several landmark innovations: a radical new ultra-low profile bass and midrange driver, and a large, fully vented new tweeter.  By incorporating both in cabinets only 35mm (just over 1.25in.) deep, the T Series brings you all the pleasures of true audiophile quality sound in a speaker that perfectly complements the aesthetics of the latest flat screen TVs.


Ultra-slim Bass Driver


Clean, forceful response that brings the action vividly to life.

Instead of a cone, the radical new twin-layer bass and midrange unit has a flat diaphragm whose rigidity throughout the frequency range is maintained by very fine stiffening ribs, with the driver as a whole acting as a stressed member to help eliminate any unwanted resonance from the slim cabinet. The resulting response is as clean, accurate and distortion-free as a quality conventional speaker, with none of the bulk.

In addition to minimising the height of the magnets, we placed the entire suspension outside the magnet system so that it adds nothing to its height. Whether you opt for the standard satellite and centre speakers or the larger models with additional bass/midrange drivers, the result is an exceptionally shallow unit that allows the enclosure to have the same installed depth as current flat screen TVs without compromising acoustic integrity in the slightest. Lush yet well controlled, it’s the kind of performance that brings soundtrack effects to life with a real sense of drama.


Large Vented Tweeter


A warm, natural sound that’s so real you feel you’re there.

The generous size of the sophisticated new 25mm (1in.) vented tweeter specially developed for the T Series allows exceptionally accurate reproduction, especially of the human voice. And silken, effortlessly pure high notes. The clarity is outstanding, even played loud.

KEF’s unique ‘tangerine’ waveguide helps to disperse the sound image evenly throughout the room. The combined effect is remarkable: you find yourself immersed in a dense three-dimensional sound picture that completely engages you with what’s happening on screen.



Included in the package:
• 1 x T301 pair
• 1 x T301c center channel
• 1 x T101 pair
• 1 x T2 subwoofer

1st world problems. We moved, and the DefTech Mythos XTR-60s & XTR-20BP were not up to snuff for my wife because they were black and our new living room is light grey. She actually found these and they blend in really well. They are slim and very well built. I added in the Ci200ER In-Ceiling Speaker Ultra Thin Bezel for my Atmos setup and I am pretty happy with the the look and the sound quality.

While the sound quality is good, I would say that the DefTech has more punch, but it is also 2x the price and has more drivers. The subwoofer has less punch as well but these are slimmer than my Mythos and definitely more cost effective- so very high marks for value (Posted on 1/19/2017)
Best purchase of 2016! Review by ags9

The KEF T205 5.1 speakers might be my best purchase of 2016. These are simply fantastic sounding speakers. We moved to a new house and the wife refused to let me purchase floor standing speakers (i had my eyes set on ELAC Debut). Found the KEF T205 at a great price and pulled the trigger. The sound is amazing for such thin and compact speakers. I set the crossover for the T2 subwoofer down to 120Hz, as stated in the manual, and the sound is simply outstanding. I have an open floor plan and was really concerned if these speakers would deliver, but they live up well to their reputation. I played the bank robbery scene from The Dark Knight and my floor really shakes. Highly recommended! (Posted on 1/5/2017)
Worth every penny Review by Victor C

Was initially in the market for a 5.1 ch home theatre speaker bundle with a budget of a little under $1,000. I've had a set of 5.1ch speakers before which were about half the price of the T-205
and was very happy with them... up until now.

The T-205 was everything I expected and more. The box package that these speakers came in were no joke - it was padded all over to prevent any damage in transit. Unboxing these things you'd quickly realize
the supreme build quality of the speakers as well as the wall mount that came with it. It was obvious KEF did not cut corners when manufacturing them. The form factor on the speakers are amazingly thin and look really
good when mounted on a wall, which actually made the build quality more impressive considering most things wouldn't feel like it's well stocked if they were thin and low profile.

The sound quality took the cake here for me, as it sounded like one of the very expensive home theatre sets you hear in the magnolia room in a local best buy but the T-205 costs way less than some of the ones there.
It has a very cinema like sound and feel to it , almost something I've grown out of expecting having owned numerous home theatre speakers before. God knows how much better these things will sound when you actually sound proof your walls.

All in all, I've never felt this excited since unboxing and getting my first ever Apple Iphone. Everything from the feel of the build quality, aesthetics and look, all the way down to how these speakers perform will blow your socks off (Posted on 12/15/2016)

Just installed these T-205s and all I can say is wow! I don't impress easily , I was apprehensive of the sound quality at first, but was I pleasantly surprised.
I was immediately taken away with the crisp center channel. My old systems center channel was muffled and hard to understand at times, the new system brings out the sounds and puts the sound where it belongs. This system was so impressive, so improved, over the top that MY wife (who never offers) spoke up about how it makes the movie sound like we are sitting in the middle of a theater. Makes a fella want to watch all my movies over again! Great surround with movies as well as 5.1 audio TV. Give those engineers at KEF a raise for packing so much sound in so little space! Made a Great self Christmas present. (Posted on 11/23/2016)

I never heard of KEF before but a local dealer of mine recommended this system after I enquired about on-wall speakers. I live in a nice sized condo but my living room cant accommodate more stuff on the floor (and I cant afford Blade!), but I really wanted a killer HT system. T205 - insanity. WOW. The sound coming from these is insane. Clear, crisp, great bass from the subwoofer, easy to set up. A+ KEF! Glad to know ya! (Posted on 10/29/2015)

T205 System

If you prefer more frontal ‘slam’ for movie special effects and a system that generally plays louder, the T205 system substitutes a pair of the larger T301 speakers for the front satellite and centre channel speakers.

For drama as well as music, even in larger loft-like spaces, it has the power to keep everyone in the room on the edge of their seat.

Red dot award: product design 2011
The T Series speakers have a depth of merely 35 mm, enclosing an ultra-slim high performance driver. Picking up the trend of TVs coming onto the market with increasingly slim designs, their svelte silhouette and elegant appearance result in a harmonious overall picture when placed next to a flat-screen TV whilst retaining high fidelity sound quality. Thanks to their technical features, the speakers produce a three-dimensional sound field that perfectly underlines the events on screen.
