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 Wireless Speakers review

 

An impressive package of convenience and sound quality

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...

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.
