Acclaimed KEF LS50 Bookshelf Loudspeakers Give You a Spot in the Studio: Remarkably Fast, Clean, and Natural Sound Combines with Large Soundstaging and Sweet Spot. An "engineer's loudspeaker" that allows home listeners a spot in their own recording studio, the KEF LS50 mini-monitor bookshelf loudspeaker stands as one of the most revered, internationally awarded audio designs released in the past 25 years. Value-Priced Loudspeaker of the Year.Product of the Year and Editors' Choice Award winner. Product of the Year, and. Outstanding Product just to name a few honors LS50 is inspired by the iconic KEF LS3/5A monitors and again benefits from collaboration with the legendary BBC. Each two-way LS50 employs a proprietary, custom-made Uni-Q driver.
Originally developed for KEF's flagship Blade speaker, Uni-Q boasts an unusually large sweet spot and offers remarkably fast, detailed, natural, transparent sound. That it manages such rich, accurate, and notably exciting performance despite its charmingly compact size (11.9 x 7.9 x 10.9 inches) belies both expectations and logic. In to addition to the Uni-Q driver, LS50 owes its feats to a trio of three breakthroughs: Constrained layer damping that prevents cabinet vibration, a flexible reflex port that prevents midrange coloration and avoids chuffing, and curved baffle shaping that minimizes reflections while simultaneously lending prized rigidity. LS50's high-frequency tangerine waveguide further allows for extremely wide dispersion, lending to soundstaging abilities seldom possible from compact designs.A one-inch vented aluminum dome tweeter, 5.25-inch magnesium/aluminum alloy driver, and KEF's decades of experience and technological research including Finite Element Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics techniques also combine to place LS50 on a rarified pedestal. Whether in standard or wireless form, the KEF LS50 became the bookshelf monitor loudspeaker to beat right from the outset. The 21st Century version of the LS3/5A is a true modern masterpiece!

The LS50 communicates music's subtle dynamic shifts with rare precision, and that may be one of the reasons why it sounds so lifelike.
Bass fullness and definition are pretty respectable for a speaker of its size. They played rock loud enough for me, and large-scale orchestral music was well served by the LS50s.
