Bring your TV to life with superb hi-fi quality sound

Vocals so realistic they sound live. Sound effects that keep you on the edge of your seat. Music that seems like the performers are there with you in the room. With KEF’s new V Series, you’ll get more from your favourite shows than you ever thought possible.


KEF's award-winning acoustic technology

With an unrivalled record of design innovation and countless awards to prove it, KEF has led the home entertainment revolution from the start - and in the ultra-slim new V700, you'll hear what a difference advanced technology can make from the moment you switch on.

Four patented ultra-slim bass drivers

An array of four ultra-low profile high performance drivers – two on each side - directly below or above your TV delivers startlingly clear, assertive and accurate bass/midrange response.

Two Vented tweeters with 'tangerine' waveguide

KEF's famously natural-sounding aluminium dome tweeter assures flawless vocals. The pair of tweeters in the V700 are vented to eliminate distortion, even played loud, and by distributing the output across a wider angle, the 'Tangerine' waveguides allow the whole family to enjoy the same sound quality, wherever they sit.



Class D digital amplifier

With an integral digital amplifier, you don't need another amp or AV receiver to enjoy true hi-fi sound. Set-up is easy, and everything can be controlled by your existing TV remote

CD quality sound

Richly detailed, spacious and stunningly accurate, the sound quality gives recordings the depth and immediacy of live performance.


Easy 'plug-and-play' and controlled by your own TV remote*

Everything about the new V700 is designed to make life easier as well as more pleasurable - and it only takes a few minutes to set up. Setting up your V700 couldn't be easier. All you have to do is connect the soundbar to your TV with the HDMI cable provided and plug into a power source. That's it - you're ready to make the most of your favourite TV shows, using your existing TV remote. TVs without ARC (HDMI 1.4) will require an optical cable, which is widely available (but not included).

Easy 'plug-and-play' and controlled by your own TV remote*

Ultra-slim profile to match your TV

Just 53mm (2.1 in.) in depth - the elegantly minimalist V700 is styled to blend unobtrusively with your screen.

Complete freedom of positioning

Whether your screen is on the wall or standing on a console, the V700 is easy to place either above or below the screen, either mounted on the wall, or on the same flat surface as your TV using the discreet adjustable stand provided. There's also switchable EQ modes at the back of the V700 allowing you to optimise the bass response for the placement you choose, whether it's on a stand or mounted against the wall.

Everything about the new V Series is designed to make life easier as well as more pleasurable - and it only takes a few minutes to set up.

Prefer two speakers on the sides? Take a look at our V300. For even more bass extension, there's the option of adding any KEF subwoofer, or choosing a V720W system.
