KEF LSX II Wireless Bookshelf Speakers Hit The ShelvesEastwood
The second generation of KEF’s incredible little wireless powered speakers, the LSX II, has just arrived with some key upgrades and improved functionality. The original LSX was an impressive piece of kit and was something that I owned myself for a period of time. Our main gripe with them was the app (or apps) to control them. One app was needed for power/volume/input switching, and another for music selection and playback. This made operation a tad clunky. The new LSX II does away with this complexity and is simpler to operate, with one app controlling all main functions.
These are an incredibly flexible little speaker system. As well as being able to stream music to them wirelessly via all the usual methods (Spotify, Airplay, Tidal, Chromecast, music from your phone or tablet, Bluetooth etc), they have a range of physical connection options such as HDMI ARC (new), optical, USB and auxillary inputs and subwoofer output.
Revised colour options (Black, White, Red, Blue) round out a high performing and compact solution for both music and movie playback, and for anyone wanting a better sounding alternative to a soundbar. And of course you don’t need an amplifier to power them, so they’re a great choice for those who want less clutter or are tight on space.
The KEF LSX II retails for $2195 and are available to order now. A demonstration pair are in store should you like to pop in for a look and listen, and you can find them HERE on our website.
