British loudspeaker firm opens first Japan showroom

Japan news August 2017

Loudspeaker manufacturer Kent Engineering & Foundry (KEF), was established in 1961 by the late Raymond Cooke OBE, formerly an electrical engineer at the BBC. It is now a member of the Hong Kong-based GP Acoustics Group.

As reported by the AV Watch website on 21 July, the firm has opened its first Japan showroom, the KEF Music Gallery, in Tokyo. Displaying high-performance loudspeakers, headphones and other items that appeal to audiophiles, it is open from 11:00 to 19:00, and is not far from Bic Camera’s flagship store in Yurakucho.
