British-based loudspeaker manufacturer, KEF has been at the forefront of loudspeaker design and technology for 50 years. People who know sound knows that KEF stands for integrity, design innovation and phenomenal acoustic transparency. Over the times, the brand has delivered some of the extraordinary loudspeakers, including the limited edition MUON speakers and the latest Blade loudspeakers, which are considered to be as a treat for the audiophiles. Now, to mark its 50th anniversary year, KEF has released a special edition LS50 mini monitor speaker which is derived from the legendary ‘engineers speaker’ LS3/5a, used by the BBC in the 1960s.

Designed to bring professional studio monitor concept into the home, the LS50 mini monitor delivers a rich and multi-dimensional ‘soundstage experience’ which to its size is truly out of all proportion. Together with the cutting-edge technology from KEF’s latest flagship loudspeaker Blade, LS50 pays testament to the company’s iconic past and the innovative spirit of today’s research and product development team.

Capable of mastering an exceptional range of dynamic lows and highs, the LS50’s bespoke Uni-Q driver array delivers original source sounds which are typically lost by the standard speakers. The Uni-Q driver uses a low/mid frequency cone, rear-vented high frequency unit and damped Mg/Al alloy metal. The LS50 is described to be the ultimate mini monitor which is designed using the KEF’s state-of-the-art acoustic modeling.

Considerable research and development have resulted in creating a small housing capable of delivering such a spacious sound. With in-cabinet construction, baffle shaping and port design, the LS50 breaks new ground with patent-pending technology, and offers by far the cleanest, most accurate studio-grade performance of any mini monitor. And, LS50 neither adds nor subtracts a single sound; it’s effortlessly natural and accurate too.
