There were 2 pairs of Reference 2's at the Audiojumble in Tonbridge on Sunday, one pair in Walnut and the other in Rosewood, although they are floor standers they don't take up any more space than Reference 1's with stands.

Do you remember how much they were?

I think the Rosewood ones were £300, they were boxed and had had new tweeters fitted by KEF in February, the Walnut pair were £375 at the start of the day but I do not now if they were reduced towards the end.

Thanks for heads up - saw them at the Audiojumble too :-) Have heard (a long time ago) but really looking for the latest (2014 onwards) iteration

Ah, the ones that cost about five grand?  Very deep cabinets and terrific bass, iirc.

Absolutely! Just sold some Raidho X-1’s - amazing little mini monitors that do extraordinary things but There’s only so much a 4 inch mid/bass can do - Will miss the tweeter but the Ref 1’s have the dynamics and low end I miss

Ah, the Ref 3’s on EBay - drooling over them for a while - I think the prodigious bass would be too much tbh - Heard them in the flesh (and the 5’s) love the Ref family tree

That's a lot of speaker for a few hundred quid.  Just got a pair off Ebay for £330, mint condition Rosewood.

The bass on the Ref 2's I just got seems  quite lean, thought nicely controlled, guess putting the bass cones IN the cabinet will have that effect, work well in my room though, eliminate bass boom.
