2018 PLUG AND PLAY SYSTEM OF THE YEAR – THE ABSOLUTE SOUND

“Visually arresting and sonically satisfying, the LS50 delivered tonal neutrality at just the right pitch, with superb sonics, full-bodied presence and potent midbass punch … [The LS50 Wireless] is an all-in-one version of this same speaker which includes built in amplification, DAC, streaming preamp (TIDAL and Roon ready), and DSP room EQ that gives you the same sonics without any need for outboard electronics. Thanks to its beautifully crafted high-density enclosure – an ideal platform for the space saving Uni-Q – there’s little in the way of cabinet resonances or port colorations. Imaging is as clean and pinpoint-precise as you’d expect from KEF.” — 2018
