KEF’s Popular LS50 Speakers Go Wireless

KEF puts a spin on its popular LS50 speakers with the new LS50 Wireless, designed to deliver clear, accurate and transparent sound.

 •

A few years ago, when KEF introduced its LS50 loudspeaker, the company created quite a stir within the audio market.

Combining its latest audio concepts with its newest industrial designs, the speaker provided professional musicians, audiophiles and luxury consumers with a speaker that met their listening needs. 

Adding more capabilities to the popular loudspeaker, KEF has just announced its LS50 Wireless loudspeaker

Available this December for $2,200 per pair, the LS50 Wireless Loudspeaker provides music lovers with a versatile solution that includes the company's proprietary UniQ driver array and a host of user-friendly features. 

Design & Specs

Within the speaker's FEA-designed cabinet, the LS50 Wireless speaker incorporates a high-resolution 24-bit/192kHz signal path that includes two dedicated DACs per channel, a streaming preamplifier, and bi-amplification setup in a dual-mono configuration of 200 plus 30 watts per speaker.

The LS50 Wireless speaker also utilizes a time-correcting DSP crossover, and dual-band 2.4GHz/5GHz Wi-Fi connectivity.

Some of the connectivity options the LS50 Wireless speaker offers include Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX, an Asynchronous USB Type B input, Toslink optical and RCA line-level analog inputs.

App Support

KEF supports the LS50 Wireless with an app that is available on both iOS and Android. The app facilitates wireless setup, music playback and control. It also offers three levels of customizable EQ to allow homeowners to tailor the speaker's sound to their individual preferences. 

In addition, the LS50 Wireless features a touch-sensitive control panel with a clear backlit display of inputs and a subwoofer output option.

KEF provides a choice of Titanium Grey, Gloss Black/Blue and Gloss White/Copper.
