By | January 30th, 2019|Categories: Audioholics|Tags: |

KEF’s LS50 Wireless all-in-one speaker system has been hugely successful for the British loudspeaker manufacturer, and it recently took home the EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association) award for Best Wireless Loudspeaker of 2017-2018. For $2,200 per pair, the LS50 Wireless offers world-class sound from a compact package that includes a built-in network streamer, Bluetooth receiver, digital-to-analog converter, and amplifier. Now KEF is hoping to bring its wireless speaker concept to a wider audience with a miniaturized speaker system called the LSX.

KEF LSX Arrive for Review

By | December 18th, 2018|Categories: Audiostream|

Imaging. That’s the first thing I noticed after I spent all of five minutes getting the new KEF LSX Wireless Music System up and running, that and prodigious, clean bass that seemed improbable from an $1,100 USD pint-sized loudspeaker not even mounted on stands.

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

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
