KEF, Parasound, Straight Wire, The Vinyl Revivers, The Audio Hunters – CAF 2018

By | December 10th, 2018|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , , |

I’m a fan of the KEF Uni-Q driver. I own pair of KEF Q100’s that I keep on hand for road warrior duties. I take them to vinyl parties (the records, not the sex), the occasional record store day event, and sometimes I have even brought them along on a third date. Trust me, the KEF Uni-Q sound is seductive, and thoroughly cooperative with my varied social agendas.

Arriving to the KEF room on Sunday, much later than I expected, I ran into Johan Coorg (KEF’s global brand manager).… Read the full article

By | November 29th, 2018|Categories: Audiostream|

You’ve read the reviews obsessively.

CAF 2018: KEF Reference 1 and a Saturday Morning Wake-Up Call

By | November 29th, 2018|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , |

“We’re going to start off Saturday morning with some RAWK!”

Mornings at high-end audio shows, at least the first hour or so, are usually dedicated to quieter music. The hallways haven’t quite filled up yet, and many of the exhibitors are still nursing hangovers from partying the night before. Okay, maybe I’m generalizing here, or at least bringing a few too many of my personal experiences into it. But heavy metal at 10am?

KEF (website), along with the folks at The Audio Hunters and The Vinyl Revivers says yes.… Read the full article

LSX is “hi-fi for the 95%”, says KEF

By | November 14th, 2018|Categories: AV Hub|

Christmas green – the olive green version of the new KEF LSX is a Signature edition of designer Michael Young, who oversaw design for the LSX.

KEF has officially launched its colourful family of LSX wireless stereo speakers at a Christmassy Melbourne launch in the trendy Smart Artz Gallery.

The LSX design roughly halves both the size and price of the company’s successful LS50W model. It’s a little more than half in volumetric terms, indeed — the LSX is 24cm high rather than 30cm, and its width is more than halved, making it slightly slimmer from the front, while reducing its final volume to around a third that of the LS50W.… Read the full article

Letters to the editor: KEF LSX, Mac Mini & music

“John — watching your LSX video, I had a eureka moment!  Some background, very briefly…  For years, I’ve been frustrated about the lack of Roon connectivity for the Naim Mu-so, which I use as a second sound system outside of my main lounge area.  Watching this video, I realized that I can use the same Chromecast hack with the Mu-so, which has both the optical in and the charging port!  

There has been lots of forum chatter about the lack of Roon on the Mu-so line, so maybe other readers will benefit from this insight. Read the full article
