KEF announced an update to their LS50 speaker this week, announcing the release of a new wireless version of the passive speaker in honor of their 55th anniversary.
The LS50 Wireless featured a similar design to the standard LS50 speaker, featuring a similarly design cabinet, a 5.25-inch Uni-Q driver, and an elliptical sound port.
The wireless version of the speaker also comes with constrainer layer damping bracing, with end-to-end 192kHz/24-bit high-resolution audio and two dedicated digital-to-analog converters per channel. Each speaker also features a bi-amp dual-mono configuration for 200 + 30 watts of power per speaker, as well as a streaming preamp, which allows it to correct DSP crossover. In terms of connectivity, it uses both Bluetooth 4.0 and dual-band 2.4GHz/5GHz WiFi.
You can also plug it in via USB Type B or TOSLINK connectivity for wired connectivity.
There’s also RCE inputs for analog.
To control all of this, there’s a touch-sensitive panel, and it can also connect to a companion application on iOS or Android to setup the network, control music streaming, playback and control other functions.
The KEF LS50 Wireless will be available in titanium gray/red, gloss black/blue, and gloss white/copper finishes in December for $2,200 in the US.
