KEF Announces LS50 Meta and Wireless II

KEF is starting to roll out its launch of the LS50 Collection, and with it, two new models: the LS50 Meta and the LS50 wireless. These are the first speakers to implement metamaterial technology.

The LS50 Meta is a bookshelf loudspeaker that is highly precise, emotionally engaging, and built on revolutionary acoustic technology. Designed around the Uni-Q 12th Generation with Metamaterial Absorption Technology driver array, this solid, compact loudspeaker is capable of delivering detailed sound anywhere in the room.

KEF wants you to be immersed in the sounds you hear, and the Metamaterial Aborption Technology builds on that. Metamaterial Absorption Technology (MAT) is a highly complex maze-like structure that absorbs 99% of the unwanted sound from the rear of the driver, eliminating the resulting distortion and providing purer, more natural sound.
The Wireless II looks to be the perfect all-in-one speaker system, streaming from any source thanks to wireless compatibility with AirPlay 2, Chromecast and more, plus wired connections for your TV, games console and turntable. Great sound, no strings attached.
LS50 Wireless II has audiophiles covered with support for streaming music files up to 24bit/384kHz, as well as MQA, DSD256, and Roon Ready (coming soon). These features mean that even the experienced hifi enthusiast will marvel at this exceptional loudspeaker’s ability.
Every aspect of LS50 Wireless II has been considered for acoustic benefits and from a design perspective. The low-diffraction, curved baffle is precision modeled around the Uni-Q driver, while eye-catching heat sinks and color-matched ports are located on the well-equipped rear. The top-mounted control panel is designed to be stylish and functional.
The LS50 Meta will go for the price of $1,499.99, while the Wireless II will go for $2,499.99
