KEF LS50 Mini Monitor Preview

 

Preview: The thing that makes the KEF LS50 mini-monitors so exciting is the price. $1500 a pair may sounds reasonable to us given the level of technology that has gone into KEF LS50s.

KEF LS50 LoudspeakerReview

 

For a 50+ year old company, KEF sure can innovate. Their latest bookshelf loudspeaker will have the competition crying in their pudding.

With the Denon AVR-591, I heard a hardness in the treble that could become irritating over time, but as I listened to more and more products, I realized that the LS50's capabilities are only limited by your choice of amplifier and source. For a $1,500...

KEF LS50 Wireless

 

The KEF LS50 Wireless is an outstanding active speaker package that offers outstanding hi-fi sound, minimal fuss and a whole lot of convenience.

Outstanding sound ; Great choice of inputs ; Easy and flexible to set up and use ; Neat design

App isn't as responsive as it could be ; Can't control physical inputs via the app

An outstanding active speaker system that brings hi-fi sound and plug-and-play convenience together for performance that can’t be topped.

KEF LS50

 

Awards 2012 Product of the Year - Stereo Speakers. A fine way to celebrate KEF's 50th anniversary

Transparency, impressive resolution ; excellent bass for size ; fine build and finish

Demanding of partnering equipment

Of course, the LS50’s innate transparency means that any flaws in the partnering kit will be apparent. But get it right and you have what is one of the best standmounters below £1000, and easily one of KEF’s most musical efforts in years.

Breathtaking sound quality ; Tons of inputs ; Beautiful, compact design

No AirPlay or Google Cast ; Basic remote ; Slow mobile app

The KEF LS50 Wireless is an amazing sounding pair of speaker made for the new audiophile who doesn’t want to think about picking different source components. While the LS50W is expensive, you’ll be hard pressed to put together a better sounding package...
