KEF News

The KEF LS50 has been one of the most important speakers of the past 5 years

This is an engineer-led design with unrivalled performance at the price, and there is still little around that can come close

So an additional active and wireless version is very interesting

kef ls50 wireless W

Two speakers, built-in power amplifiers, one wire between them, mains powered, controlled from your tablet or phone, this could be all the hifi system you need.

LS50 wireless looks good and sounds superb, £ 1999 per pair, now playing in the shop

For an in-depth analysis follow this link to an American review by Darko, who has made them his 'Product of the Year'

LS50 Wireless Review

If the review is too heavy just call in here for a listen

The Kef Reference range stands for the ultimate performance.

Projects such as the amazing Muon and Blades showcase new technology which then filters into the main ranges.

That's good as Muons are £ 130,000 and Blades £ 20,000 so they don't apply to most people, until now.

The R series was the first to use Blade technology and they are outstanding performance and value I have really been looking forward to the updated Reference series.

There are three new models to salivate over

Imaginatively named model One, Three, and Five these cover a price range from £4500 to £ 10500

The £4500 Model Ones are bookshelf/stand mount speakers featuring an all new Uni-Q unit with the treble placed in the centre of the midrange to give a wide an even room dispersion of high and midrange frequencies along with great precision. This matched with a 6.5" bass unit which packs a real punch and depth.

The Reference 3s are a slim floorstanding version featuring the same mid/treble and 2 of the 6.5" aluminium bass units, £7500

The larger cabinet extends the bass performance while retaining a large spread of sound from the latest Blade derived mid/treble unit

The Reference 5s are another slim floorstander featuring the same mid/treble and 4 of the 6.5" bass units, £10,500

The detailing and finish of these new speakers are superb. You will be  really impressed when you see, touch, and especially hear them. There are also matching centre speakers and a subwoofer if you want to use Reference in a surround set-up.

All models available in Deep Piano Black, Satin American Walnut, Luxury Gloss Rosewood and Gloss Ice White

I hope to have some Reference on demonstration from late April, but give me a call if you want to know more now.

 

Kef X300A computer monitors have a new brother

These look and sound identical, so that's good, but add a few tricks. The new version is both wireless and DLNA serving.

What does that mean to you? Well in addition to playing them directly from a computer you can now Airplay into them from your phone and even play music from your server directly into them controlled from your smartphone.

This makes them really useful as part of a networked digital streaming system and adds many opportunites.

An extra £ 200, £ 799/pair is a bargain for this sound and connectivity!
