"The Q900 model is the flagship model of the Q Series range, featuring a new generation Uni-Q MF/HF array paired with a 200mm (8in) long-throw bass driver of equal size, and two matching ABRs. The Q900s will flood the room with an intricate and intensely physical soundstage. As the front speakers in a home theatre system, these towering performers will create a flawless and mind blowing 3-D image that faithfully tracks the action on screen."

I bought them in March 2017, from the authorized KEF partner www.visions.ca.
I took extreme care of these speakers, they are in the absolutely the-same-as-new cosmetic and working condition, not a single scratch, with grilles, all the original packaging and manuals. The plinths, plinth-mounting hardware, spike feet, etc., are still factory-sealed, I did not use them.
They were in the Stereophile list of Recommended Components, Class B from 2011 to 2016,
The review by Stereophile is https://www.stereophile.com/content/kef-q900-loudspeaker
The conclusion was that "I have been sampling small floorstanders in the under-$2000 range for a number of years now, and there is no other speaker in that range that I prefer to the KEF Q900."
They also noted that "Despite its affordable price, KEF's Q900 offers superb measured performance".
They won "Goldenes Ohr 2012" 3. "Best floor standing Loudspeakers up to 3.000 Euro" from some German Audio Magazine,
see http://ca.kef.com/q900 for the full list of awards.
The updated model KEF Q950B is currently being sold by www.visions.ca for $2399 + taxes.
My impressions of them - very transparent and detailed, huge soundstage, a bit on the bright side.
These are big speakers so I'd prefer local pickup but I will ship anywhere in Canada at buyer's expense
