KEF has just released a new series of LS50 hi-fi speakers. Arriving as the LS50 Meta and LS50 Wireless II, both are the first speakers in the world to use Metamaterial Absorption Technology (MAT) — a synthetic material that absorbs 99 percent of the unwanted sound that comes off the rear of the driver. This offers a cleaner sound that’s free from distortion and audio distraction, and improves upon the previous 60 percent absorption rate.
The LS50 Meta sees a 12th generation Uni-Q driver array with a new neck decoupler and motor system, new matte colorways, S2 floor stand capabilities, and an improved rear panel. The LS50 Wireless II speakers feature a new 100W class A/B amplifier and a 280W class D amplifier that powers the tweeter and mid/bass, respectively. This powerful wireless package can be used for streaming services and can be set up in just minutes.
Those looking for a new pair of speakers for their home audio set-up can look into KEF’s new LS50 Meta and LS50 Wireless II. The collection ranges from $1,499 – $2,499 USD.
