    Default Kef Reference 103 - recapped and serviced 250

    A very well preserved set of these iconic speakers. I have owned them for more than a decade and they consistently deliver a fatigue-free, BBC monitor style sound. Steel clad, leather-lined baffles complete a great looking design IMO. Recapped crossovers to the original specification by Mike Powell.

    Lovely..... Any pictures of the back, please? I presume these take standard banana plugs? Thanks

    Yes, a single set of 'banana' sockets, Steven.
    I don't have a rear shot but I can take one if you prefer.

    A very nice pair as they say Geoff. The cabinets look exceptional. Original or did they need a polish up? Someone will be getting a lovely set of Kefs there.

    The cabinets are good Loz and just several coats of teak oil brought them out. I should point out that the cabinets have not been refurbished at all, they're just in good condition for a speaker 40+ years of age, but not perfect.

    If I was nearer, I'd have them.
    The word is 'valves' in this country, not tubes. Tubes are what Smarties come in!

    Sadly, I’ve just seen the location. Other end of the country to me. Shame. Lovely speakers. Good luck with the sale.

    Thanks for the positive response. I currently am down to four pairs of speakers in one room, hence the sale.
