KEF LSX Wireless Speaker Aims for LS50 Performance at 1/2 the Price

 

KEF released a smaller and more stylish wireless speaker the LSX. The LSX is a scaled-down LS50 for half the price. Is it still worth the $1,100/pr price tag? Read on to find out.

KEF LSX Wireless Speaker System Review - HomeTheaterHifi.com

 

Can KEF keep up the innovation with a new, diminutive wireless speaker system with high-end pretensions? That's what I wanted to find out, so I had a few weeks of in-depth testing of the KEF LSX Wireless speaker system. It doesn't replace anything in...

Beautiful styling. The fabric covering and choice of colors make this a standout. ; Very solid construction ; Among the best in class imaging and stereo spread ; The flexibility of sources, including direct connect, AirPlay, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi ; Ease...

Package with included subwoofer ; Multiple apps are confusing. KEF should get it down to one app. ; The remote could use a redesign. The buttons are flush and require glancing at it. (KEF responds that most people use the app, but they will work on...

At $1249.99 the KEF LSX Speaker system is almost exactly half the price of its bigger brother, the LS50 Wireless Speaker System.

KEF LSX II wireless speaker system

 

KEF's pint-sized LSX II wireless powered speaker system doesn't skimp on performance, features, or anything else.

Honest, expressive sound delivers what the artist intended ; Generous hardwired connectivity options ; Broad support for online music services ; Small footprint makes them easy to move from one room to another

The KEF Connect app doesn’t do synchronized multi-room play ; Depending on the source material, can be overly bright for near-field listening ; You must dig into the online owner manual to discover and unlock “expert” setting options ; No controls on...

Don’t let the small size fool you, the KEF LSX II wireless speaker system will deliver a stellar audio performance from all the major streaming services or any local source—analog or digital, including your TV–in any but the largest of rooms.

KEF LSX review: These small but mighty wireless speakers deliver sound quality way above their size class

 

They're expensive, but you get what you pay for; in this case, exquisite sound in a compact package.

Exquisite sound quality ; Exceptional build quality ; Beautiful design

No automatic wake up and source selection upon signal detection ; IEC 320 C5 AC power connector, not 320 C13

By now, it should be obvious that I love the sound of the KEF LSX. These speakers are small but mighty, painting a richly detailed, well-balanced sonic picture. Even my wife, who isn't very fussy about audio quality, noticed how good the LSX speakers...

KEF LSX II Wireless Speaker System Review

 

Performance Build Quality Ergonomics Value

KEF's little LSX II exudes quiet sophistication, which begs a question: Is it a lifestyle speaker or an audiophile speaker? It's both, actually—and why not? The cantaloupe-sized wireless speaker is the British audio titan's latest self-powered "just...

KEF LSX II Review: KEF LSX II | Best In Their Class

 

The small KEF LSX II are the best wireless stereo speakers in their price range.

Complete streaming speaker with potent dynamics, rich sound and open soundstage. HDMI to TV audio, supports everything from Bluetooth to high-resolution audio. Remote control and easy-to-use app management.

Limited sound pressure in large rooms.

The small, wireless KEF LSX II is the new reference among stereo speakers in this class. Nowhere else do you get such great sound in such a great package. All the upgrades from the four-year-old LSX have not only made the II edition even better,...

KEF LSX Active Loudspeakers

 

It turned out that the LSX does have many of the sonic virtues of KEF's costlier LS50 and LS50 Wireless models: excellent timbral accuracy; expansive and precise imaging; and smooth, extended highs. And as for my question of whether hi-fi can be...

KEF LSX Wireless Music System Review | Trusted Reviews

 

KEF LSX review: If you want to have most of your ‘authentic hi-fi sound with wireless convenience' cake and eat it too, look any further than the KEF LSX

Good build and finish in a number of colours ; Great wireless stability ; Excellent sound from any number of sources

Short of outright scale and dynamism ; More apps than should be necessary

If you want to have most of your ‘authentic hi-fi sound with wireless convenience’ cake and eat it too, look no further than the KEF LSX.

KEF LSX II review: a sensational speaker package

 

The second-gen KEF streaming speaker package is seriously stellar, as we explore in our LSX II review

Potent and enjoyable sound ; Diminutive good looks and great finish ; Extensive connectivity

Sound better with speakers wired together ; Optional stands and brackets are quite pricey ; Struggle to fill larger spaces

The accommodations you need to make are few, and mostly concern the straightforward scale of sound you ought to expect. Get beyond this and there’s not a lot of downside to KEF LSX II ownership – it’s a great-sounding system with excellent flexibility,...
