KEF X300A

Introducing the KEF X300A digital hi-fi speaker system, an active design conceived to partner a PC or Mac, desktop or laptop computer. Simply connect the speakers via a ‘distortion free’ USB all-digital link to provide high resolution 96kHz/24 bit quality digital input and inter-speaker connection to ensure high definition sound from source to output. Each speaker features twin class AB audiophile grade amplifiers inside, one for HF and one for LF/MF. Featuring high performance toroidal transformers and high quality DACs, with the X300A you don’t need to be an expert to enjoy audiophile sound quality.

Has any one heard these?

Looks like the price is $799

A little steep for me, for PC speakers.

I would have bought a set of these if they existed earlier. I wanted a simple high quality stereo set with built in DAC. I bought the B&W MM-1 instead, which sound ok for their size but I would have gone with these KEFs instead had they been available

Consider what's in them Speaker + Quality Amplifier + DAC

They look intriguing. I wonder if the driver is the same as what is in the flagship LS50 bookshelf. They both seem to have the same specs just looking at the literature.
