Happy Sound Guarantee

Happy Sound Guarantee - 60 Day Returns Period

 

Purchasing an audio product on the internet is not the easiest of tasks when you can't experience the most important factor - how good does it sound?

We only sell quality products that we're happy to have in our own homes.

But we don't expect you to simply trust that the products on our site are good quality, so we've implemented a few things to help give you confidence.

Each of these individual guarantees and warranties have been wrapped up into the K&B Audio Happy Sound Guarantee!

 

THE HAPPY SOUND GUARANTEE

 

1. THE BEST Returns & Exchange Policy

Quite simply, if you are not happy with the quality of the speaker(s) that you buy from us then you can either;

 1) return all or part of your order and exchange or upgrade for a different system/speaker* or...

2) return them for a full refund

The only question we will ask is "Can we help you choose a different system/speaker?".

For full details on our returns policy please click here.

 

2. Extended Returns Period

We know that our products are often project based, we know you might be buying it now for installation a few weeks down the line.

So we've extended our returns period from the industry standard 14 days to an industry beating 60 days!

You can return the system for any reason during this period.** Please keep the packaging :)

For full details on our returns policy please click here.

 

3. Extended Product Warranties

Electronics are usually only covered by a one year warranty.

But we don't think that's good enough considering you have to cut holes in your ceiling!

We've managed to negotiate extended warranties with our best-selling brands that you won't get anywhere else.

 

Lithe Audio - 2 Year Standard, 1 Year Extended  = 3 YEARS TOTAL

Systemline - 2 YEARS TOTAL

KB Sound - 2 YEARS TOTAL

Monitor Audio Passive Speakers - LIFETIME

Q Install Speakers -  5 YEAR WARRANTY

Please check individual product pages for an accurate warranty length for that particular brand/product. If in doubt contact us on 02393 190955

 

4. FREE Tech Support

When you choose to buy from us at K&B Audio you'll also get access to free technical support before, during and after your project.

We can help you with project design, specification of projects, how to wire and install all of the systems we offer.

Once you have your system installed we can also help with how to use it, how to get the most out of it and anything else you need assistance with.

 

* upgrade costs must be paid in accordance with the prices shown on our website.

** unless the goods are damaged on delivery or faulty the return postage costs are to be covered by you.

Following the successful launch of the A200 and A300, the all-new A80 diminutive bookshelf speakers with a 4'5” aluminIum cone ferrite magnet woofer now join the Airpulse active speaker family.

The perfect combination of Hi-Res digital audio processing technology and a youthful sturdy system that pays homage to hifi speakers of old, the A80 is a High-Fidelity audio system with intoxicating sound quality and immense visual appeal. The A80 adopts its sound characteristics from our flagship model the 7001 near-field monitor speakers designed by Phil Jones.

Using the same XMOS core as its older siblings, this unassumingly basic cabinet delivers outstanding performance beyond expectations.

Horn Loaded Ribbon Tweeter

The A80 horn-loaded ribbon tweeter continues in the tradition of the flagship 7001 near-field monitor speakers. The thin aluminium ribbon diaphragm has high sensitivity, superb transient response, extended frequency range, and well-defined resolution, perfect to meet any music you play head on. The meticulously formulated horn shape produces directional and optimised high frequencies from the ribbon tweeter, so they are aimed at the listeners, minimising unwanted effects from room reflection. This also leads to superior imaging of the speaker. The result is unequivocally full and three dimensional sound with each detail well defined.

4.5” Aluminium Cone Ferrit Magnet

The Mid-woofer is a 4.5” unit with a hard anodised aluminium alloy cone suspended in a heavy, ultra rigid cast magnesium alloy frame. The proprietary aluminium alloy cone was designed through a meticulous process analysing different types of cone geometry and materials using a Klippel Laser Doppler Interferometer.

The 35mm diameter voice coil is larger than most loudspeakers of this size. It has been shown that larger voice coils have less power compression because they run at a cooler operating temperature. Sonically this means a more realistic dynamic representation of the music. It is dynamics in music that gives it emotion and exhilaration.

The cooler running temperature of the voice coil also has the side benefit of a more reliable loudspeaker since cooler voice coil means much less chance of speaker failure.

Fully Digital Amplifier

The power amplification part is built with 2 pieces of TAS5754 Class-D amplifier from Texas Instruments. This component is one of a handful of Class-D amplifiers on the market which combines high input sample rate support and high output PWM carrier frequency. These two characteristics are essential to achieve low background noise and low distortion.

The up-to 192 KHz input sample rate support guarantees the entire link for digital processing run without any change in sample rate signal. Its 768 KHz output PWM carrier frequency, double the typical 384 KHz found in traditional Class-D amplifiers, is more suited to driving the highly sensitive ribbon tweeter.

One TAS5754 is connected in bridge mode to the left and right channel woofer while the other amp is connected in bridge mode to the left and right channel ribbon tweeters.
