These amazing standmount/bookshelf speakers offer a comprehensive set of high quality wireless connectivity options. These include 2.4GHz/5GHz Dual-band Wi-Fi Network connectivity and Bluetooth 4.0 aptX.
KEF’s world-renowned Uni-Q driver technology places the tweeter in the exact acoustic centre of the bass/midrange cone. This means that both act as a single point source that disperses the sound more evenly throughout the room.
The LS50 Wireless system uses a 192kHz/24-bit high-resolution digital signal path throughout.
Furthermore, it also employs a dedicated DAC (Digital-to-Analogue Converter) for each channel, ensuring optimal sound quality.
Nocturne by Marcel Wanders
The internationally-renown designer, together with KEF Head of Acoustics Dr. Jack Oclee-Brown, brought the ‘Nocturne’ experience to life during a Q&A session moderated by renowned Dutch technology journalist, Vivianna Bendermarcher.
The event was rounded off with music from Dutch DJ and KEF Brand Ambassador, Sander van Doorn.
Marcel Wanders has created ‘Nocturne’, a special edition of LS50 Wireless.
The inherently circular nature of KEF’s Uni-Q driver and musical notation symbols subtly blend with unique architectural and rhythmic elements to create a sophisticated design.
I do like the next neat little touch. You see, elements of the design actually glow in the dark. The big kid in me really digs that.
The LS50 Wireless ‘Nocturne’ by Marcel Wanders lends a vibrant luminous visual quality and magical atmosphere to its surroundings. This sensuous aesthetic quality sets it apart from any other music system; making a lasting and memorable experience.
Marcel Wanders says.
There is an orchestrated tempo to this medley. By allowing for individual discovery of the musical elements, the design possesses a distinctive rhythm all on its own.”
Gabriele Chiave, creative director at Marcel Wanders, adds,
We wanted to honour the nocturnal concept. The eloquent depth to the light and dark shades, textures and patterns allude to what you would experience in a dream-like state.”
