KEF LSX II Wireless HiFi System launched

KEF announces the upcoming release of the KEF LSX II Wireless HiFi System which is Designed by Michael Young.

KEF announces the upcoming release of the LSX II Wireless HiFi System. Much more than just an update to the award-winning original, LSX II combines class-leading sound with the all-encompassing W2 wireless platform from the pioneering LS50 Wireless II and LS60 Wireless.

Offering high fidelity sound, extensive connectivity options, ease of use and contemporary design, immersive home entertainment has never been more accessible. Connectivity options have been further enhanced over the original LSX by the addition of HDMI and USB-C, making it the ideal companion for TV, laptop and desktop setups.

High fidelity sound and performance

The LSX II takes the stereo approach, giving the music room to breathe and develop, creating a three-dimensional soundstage. The speakers seem to disappear, leaving you to enjoy the performance that unfolds and draws you in.

Each LSX II loudspeaker uses a version of KEF’s 11th generation Uni-Q driver array designed specifically for this loudspeaker. This exclusive technology acts as a point source, where the tweeter is placed in the precise acoustic center of the woofer, recreating how sound is naturally produced. This design eliminates the tiny traditional “sweet spot” and instead delivers precise, pristine sound to all listeners.

LSX II has a combined system power of 200 watts. The tweeter and woofer are powered by their own dedicated amplifiers to deliver room-filling sound from the cabinets.

Performance is further improved over the award-winning original model thanks to the Music Integrity Engine. The enhanced Music Integrity Engine enables LSX II to deliver perfectly timed performance for better clarity and more accurate sound.

Play all the music in the world

With the latest KEF Connect app, you can stream Amazon Music, Qobuz, Tidal, Deezer, Internet radio stations, and podcasts. Apple AirPlay 2 and Google Chromecast seamlessly stream audio from compatible devices, while Bluetooth expands the options even further. You can use native apps to stream directly from Spotify Connect, Tidal, and QPlay. When you use Airplay 2, Chromecast, etc., you can stream to multiple wireless speakers to sync the music in your home.

Rediscover your favorite tracks with the LSX II; play your own private music collection from a compatible NAS drive or music server. Audiophiles will experience the quality of sound following the introduction of support for files up to 24bit/384kHz (PCM), DSD, and full MQA rendering.

Next Generation Plug & Play

In addition to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, LSX II also features a full collection of wired connections. These include HDMI ARC for seamless control with a TV remote and a high-quality USB-C input, making LSX II the perfect desktop audio system for your computer. There are also connections for your turntable, CD player, game console, and many other devices. If you want your movies and music to come with some extra bass, there’s a dedicated output so you can also connect a KEF subwoofer.

Improved user experience

With its powerful Room EQ DSP, LSX II can be easily adjusted to your room and personal taste. ‘Normal’ mode is designed to guide you through the process with easy questions, while ‘Expert’ mode provides additional customization. For easy integration of a KEF subwoofer with LSX II, Room EQ includes subwoofer presets that are designed to create a seamless integration with your main speakers.

Sound by KEF. Designed by Michael Young

The LSX II design is courtesy of Michael Young, one of the leading lights in industrial design. Known for his sophisticated take on minimalism, Young’s signature is a smart, minimalist aesthetic that perfectly matches the requirements of the LSX II to deliver pristine, precise sound while looking amazing.

The LSX II is available in five striking finishes: Mineral White and Lava Red models come in a satin matte and high-gloss finish respectively, while Carbon Black and Cobalt Blue are clad in a specially designed fabric by Danish contemporary textile designer, Kvadrat. Soundwave by Terence Conran Edition was one of the latest collaborations from the iconic British designer. The version sees the ‘sound wave’ pattern woven into the exclusive Kvadrat fabric complemented by Conran’s signature blue on the speaker port.
