However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 515-993-4241 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability.

R8a Dolby Atmos-Enabled Speaker



KEF R8a Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers sit above your existing front and rear floorstanding or bookshelf home theatre speakers. Knowing how the brain perceives sound, KEF engineers have perfected a way of beaming the sound upwards so it reflects off the ceiling to replicate the vertical dimension in Dolby Atmos recordings. Integrating perfectly with our R Series, Q Series and Reference Series aesthetically as well as sonically, the closed-box design of the R8a features KEF's 12th generation Uni-Q driver array. With a sophisticated 25mm (1-in.) tweeter at the centre of a 130mm (5-in.) bass/mid driver and KEF's tangerine' waveguide to maximise dispersion, it has excellent dynamics with accurate, fast and clean midrange response. And as the speaker footprint is the same, no more space is required.

What is Dolby Atmos" In real life, sound comes from all around. But conventional surround systems only allocate it horizontally - left, right, ahead and behind. What makes Dolby Atmos so staggeringly realistic is that the movement of every sound in the scene is reproduced in all three dimensions, including vertically. This creates a true 3D acoustic image of precisely located individual sounds that move in relation to you as if you were actually there. The effect is uncanny. Exhilarating. Sometimes scary, sometimes hilarious; always engrossing.

How Does It Work" How does it work" Dolby Atmos is infinitely more flexible and adaptable than channel-based home theatre. When a Dolby Atmos stream is fed to a Dolby Atmos compatible A/V receiver, the receiver will render the object-based audio to your home theatre's unique speaker configuration to precisely recreate the sound the filmmakers intended. Dolby Atmos has the ability to adapt to diverse speaker setup. You can enjoy the full effect with just seven KEF speakers.
