With a funky name, and brand recognition more purchased than built by its present owners, it would be easy to dismiss the KLH Kendall as a generic floorstander with a pretty face. The resuscitated KLH has clearly invested a lot of money and talent into ensuring that their new flagship tower speaker sounds as if it belongs in a conversation about such established audio names as Elac, KEF, and Monitor Audio. Then there are its good looks, great build quality, and nearly full-range frequency response. Add to all of that an industry-leading ten-year warranty, and it’s easy to see that this KLH tower offers tremendous value. The Kendall is part of an auspicious first effort by the reinvigorated KLH, and I suspect it will be a rousing success with both the audiophile and home-theater crowds.

As I typed the final words of this review, Roon began playing Mase’s “Welcome Back” through the KLH Kendalls. Couldn’t have said it better.

If the plan is to enter a market ignored for decades and take on a host of well-loved, dug-in brands, this is the way to do it. The Kendall is an exciting floorstander with impressive bandwidth capability that offers outstanding sound quality for the money in a package that looks smart and is well made. There are gifted British rivals, some of which are a little prettier, but the tall and talented KLH has an awful lot going for it and is very easy to recommend.

born to deliver an expansive, full-range sound... fab low-frequency grip arising... a lovely, natural tonal palette. great transparency, locked down timing and the ability to resolve as... potent, talented and dynamic... lively, open midband and smooth, well-extended and, when required, weighty and propulsive bass. KLH is an impressively articulate speaker; too, easily resolving nuances of phrasing and tempo tweaks... a sonorous period swagger that the Kendall captures beautifully. Free from grain and coarseness, detail isn't presented in flashing, neon-lit capitals but as integral - the lubricant that makes the sound mesh and flow without sounding artfully hyped, sense of assurance and authority that's smooth and tuneful and involves you with the music in a physical way.

The Kendall is particularly adept at marshaling the competing strands into a cohesive whole in which the emotional dynamic ebbs and flows unhindered and with its fair share of gloriously scalp-tingling moments.

Deliciously smooth, even, agile and extended. The Kendall is another exciting example of a floorstander with impressive bandwidth capability that offers outstanding sound quality. Very easy to recommend.

Great balance of sonic virtues; musical to the core
