KEF Introduces New LSX Two-Speaker Wireless Music System


KEF's LS50 Wireless Music System has been the belle of the wireless ball for some time now, with the only thing holding it back from being a truly wire-free hi-fi stereo listening system being the necessary interconnect between its left and right speakers.  With the introduction of the new LSX, though, that's one more cord you can cut out of your life. The new LSX compact two-speaker wireless system is truly cable free, as long as you ignore the power cords. Not only that, it also supports AirPlay 2 (well, it will as of January 2019), along with a dedicated streaming app that provides access to Tidal. With built-in Bluetooth 4.2 (aptX supported, of course), there's really not much you can't stream to the LSX.

More info directly from KEF:

KEF_LSX_White_Pair_Front_Back_final_2.jpgKEF is proud to announce LSX, a compact two-speaker wireless music system with all the convenience and connectivity of the connected world, but with the emotion and detail of true high-resolution stereo. LSX is fully wireless both from source and between the speakers and will feature AirPlay 2 for multi-room streaming from Apple devices in January 2019.

LSX follows the award-winning LS50 Wireless, and shares much of the cutting-edge acoustic engineering that has made that product famous within the audio community. It features KEF's Uni-Q driver array, a signature innovation that radically improves stereo imaging and does so across a much wider listening area.

This combines with KEF's highly advanced Music Integrity Engine, a cutting-edge collection of bespoke Digital Signal Processing algorithms that ensure accurate time alignment and phase coherence. The result is that while LSX is small enough to sit on shelves, desktops or flank a TV, it offers a massive and deep sound field which completely belies its size.

LSX's gently curved cabinet was designed with extensive use of Finite Element Analysis and is extensively braced as well as featuring constrained layer damping as found in KEF's high-end products. Continuing KEF's long tradition of design collaboration, LSX was overseen by designer Michael Young who has created a masterpiece of understated elegance. LSX comes with in a choice of five colors - Black, Blue, Maroon and Olive - which are clad in a luxury fabric by Danish textile manufacturer Kvadrat - and a striking Gloss White.

LSX will integrate with key music services and can also access music stored on a networked hard drive or PC via DLNA®. It also features Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity. Its two-box form factor make LSX perfect for music and TV, for which it features both TOSLINK optical and Auxiliary inputs.

LSX can be set-up in minutes using the KEF's Control app which also manages feature updates via simple over-the-air downloads.

Compact, effortless to operate, and with connectivity options to satisfy both music streaming and TV needs, LSX is a major step forward in the quest to deliver true and proper sound quality for connected consumers.

The suggested retail price for LSX will be $1,100 for the pair of speakers and they'll be available through Magnolia Design Center, Amazon, KEF Direct and other participating KEF Authorized Dealers.
