The Kii Three may look good at first glance, but what you see is just the tip of the iceberg! Its compact form factor can be effortlessly integrated into any living space. Nor does it attract all the attention right away, like a classic audiophile hifi system made up of numerous individual components in racks and scattered cable clusters.
The Kii THREE is not only a modern powered speaker that takes advantage of current technologies, but we take an important step further to the basics. We question, develop and implement technical approaches that have never been used before.
What looks like a compact speaker on the outside is, in fact, a luxuriously equipped, audiophile playback system that leaves other systems far behind, regardless of size and price.
The richness of detail, the impressive time and phase behavior, but above all the acoustic radiation in the normal living room let the listener immediately immerse in the musical experience of a good recording, and noticeably better than any classic, passive speakers it can.
We think these achievements are a positive development, because they provide our lives with more good music! Is there a reason why a high-quality hi-fi system should not be just as easy to integrate into our everyday life? We believe no!
The Kii THREE is a high-end hi-fi system that you will use every day, on every occasion and for all sorts of occasions.
Our mission with the Kii THREE was to break up the tonal limitation of compact speakers. There are already some time ago small and powerful speakers with deep bass reproduction, but they never sounded like a really big speakers. The Kii THREE is designed to change that.
The basics of acoustics tell us that a classic, compact loudspeaker emits sound only from the mid frequencies up towards the listener.
In contrast, the low mid-frequencies and bass frequencies are emitted increasingly spherically in all directions as the frequency decreases.
The frequency range in which this transition happens in the radiation behavior is dependent on the size of the housing, more precisely the housing front (also called baffle).
The smaller this is, the higher the frequency at which the sound continues to be emitted spherically around the entire loudspeaker, rather than directly towards the listening position.
This is the reason why large loudspeakers have so far been able to offer so much more precise timing and better detail in the bass and mid-bass range, the space, in simplified terms, has less chance of affecting the sound. And that's exactly what we've achieved for the first time with the Kii THREE.
The Kii THREE is the first loudspeaker to outperform the clarity and resolution of a large fullrange system in a large room, while due to its size it also works in much more modest spaces.
In fact, smaller rooms will most noticeably benefit from the more controlled bass of the Kii THREE. Better than big speakers in performance and better suited to small spaces than other small speakers, the Kii THREE is really uncompromising!

Quote: "With the Three several long-cherished wishes come true. The sound pressure reserves are more than sufficient despite the pleasantly compact shape. The ability to adapt to space and the enormous low-bass potential make well-known concepts look absolutely old, even with massive floor boxes. In addition to this strange transparency and ease, there is no eye dry. The digitally generated bass kidney and the DSP control geared to maximum fidelity are no less than a stroke of genius. Why has not anyone done that before? "
STEREOPHILE PRODUCT OF THE YEAR AWARD
As Kal Rubinson 2017 Stereophile, "Almost everything about Kii Audio's Three loudspeakers is a refreshing splash of cool water." That's especially true if one of its effects is to refresh and splash and cool-as meaning "different." And my oh my, this year's winner ever different.
The six-way, six-driver Kii Three is distinct from the other loudspeakers-and all previous products of the year, as well as I know-as-it-is self-amplified and -preamplified, DSP-controlled, and German , The Kii Audio Three is far less than other products that have sat at our annual vote. Take that, conformity!
