Kef

BACKGROUND

Innovation, our inspiration

Innovation is what sets KEF apart. The results are plain for all to see… and hear.
 

Raymond Cooke OBE was a music lover and a deeply practical man. In 1961, keen to experiment with new materials and technologies in order to create products that delivered a superior acoustic performance, he launched his fledgling company on a foundation of quality engineering with a vision that has ensured its continued success to the present day.


KEF was one of the originators of the British hi-fi industry, and right from the start took a pioneering approach to loudspeaker design. KEF spearheaded the use of synthetic materials for diaphragms and driver surrounds and was the first company to use the power of computers in loudspeaker testing and design.


Now in its sixth decade, KEF continues to develop class-leading products at its R&D and engineering base in Maidstone, Kent. Thanks to continued innovation and an ever-growing portfolio of cutting-edge, high-performance products, KEF retains its reputation as the choice of the discerning audiophile.


KEF was built on innovation, and innovation remains at the heart of everything it does.

OUR FOUNDER

Raymond Cooke OBE

Following his time as a radio operator in the Royal Navy, Raymond Cooke obtained a BSc in Electrical Engineering from the University of London and went on to join the Engineering Designs Department at the BBC where he was exposed to the pioneering loudspeaker development work of a talented group of engineers that included Dudley Harwood and D.E.L. Shorter. After five years at Wharfedale, working alongside Gilbert Briggs, he decided to set up his own company to develop loudspeakers using the latest in materials technology.
 

KEF soon found success with products such as the K1 Monitor and the bookshelf ‘Celeste’ and, with Cooke’s commitment to strong engineering principles, developed into one of the leading loudspeaker companies in the world. KEF became famous for the quality of its drive units, which were used in countless systems around the world, and later for significant developments in loudspeaker measurement technology. The investment required to achieve this level of technical expertise was considerable but Raymond Cooke correctly judged the logical route forward that KEF needed to take.
 

Cooke was a great communicator and made sure that not just the engineering but the marketing of KEF products was up to his high standards. His commitment to the audio industry was visible from his support of the Audio Engineering Society, of which he was president in 1984, and from which he was awarded the Silver Medal in 1993 for outstanding contributions to transducer measurements. His contributions on a wider scale were recognised in 1979 when he was awarded the OBE by HM Queen Elizabeth II. Raymond Cooke sadly passed away in 1995 but his legacy lives on in the company that he founded. He spoke of his vision for KEF as follows: ‘I was determined to put into practice the many possibilities I could see for improving loudspeakers through more rigorous engineering’.
