KEF's journey into wireless

By | August 8th, 2019|Categories: AV Hub|

KEF’s journey into wireless

KEF’s active speaker revolution began with the LS50, created to celebrate 50 years of loudspeaker engineering. Nearly 10 years on from that, the addition of wireless has made KEF’s LS50W and latest LSX wireless speakers simple but spectacular hi-fi system solutions.

It started with a mass-produced polystyrene cup, the kind used for hot drinks, made by vacuum-forming a foamed plastic over a shaping tool. These were patented in the USA back in 1957, at which time one Raymond Cooke (pictured above right) was designing loudspeaker drive units as Technical Director of Wharfedale, a position he’d taken after working for the BBC’s Designs Department.… Read the full article

Cooking up a summer storm with the KEF LSX

By | July 1st, 2019|Categories: DAR|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Bluetooth. AirPlay 2. Spotify Connect. Roon. Room tuning. DSP. Firmware updates. Every one an audio tech abstraction until it meets the real world where many of us un/consciously look beyond our sub-optimal listening environments.

With the Berlin summer in full swing over the weekend, it was time to bust out the BBQ. My rooftop apartment offers a balcony long enough for a large group of people and wide enough for a large Weber-on-wheels — but not a four-seater table. We’d cook, chat and sink cold adult beverages outside but we’d eat in the kitchen.… Read the full article

KEF LSX wireless speakers REVIEW

By | June 26th, 2019|Categories: AV Hub|

There is, truly, no substitute for stereo reproduction when it comes to delivering music the way it was designed to be heard. The first stereo demonstration was made in 1881, with Clément Ader’s stereo telephone headsets delivering sound direct from the Paris Opera. British engineer Alan Blumlein at EMI extended the idea to speakers in the 1930s after watching early talkies movies where the sound didn’t follow the on-screen movements of the actor. Stereo went via tape to the LP in 1957, and has been the mainstay of hi-fi ever since.… Read the full article

KEF LSX Wireless Streaming Loudspeaker System

KEF LSX Wireless Streaming Loudspeaker System

I’ve always liked variety and difference, and hi-fi has both in spades. In this hobby, there isn’t one right answer, one perfect system for everyone. There’s a huge array of different sizes, shapes, and sounds, and they’re all equally good, at least in that they aren’t the be-alls/end-alls. The KEF LSX ($1099) wireless streaming speaker system may be unconventional, but it’s another path to great sound, one that’s accessible to absolutely everyone, especially people who don’t want to wade through pages of hi-fi forum snark in order to learn about this stuff.… Read the full article
