The following is a press release issued by KEF.
Maidstone, Kent | August 18, 2020 – KEF is proud to announce the release of the KW1 – a simple to operate and high performing adaptable wireless transmitter and receiver kit designed specifically to work with the KEF Kube and KF92 subwoofers. KW1 provides a flexible solution when placing a subwoofer within a home theatre, AV system, or any music or television set-up.
The KW1 wirelessly connects the KEF Kube or KF92 subwoofer to any hi-fi, home theatre, television or AV system and is also perfectly suited for use with KEF’s revolutionary LSX and LS50 Wireless Active Music Systems.
Connection is made easy through KEF’s expansion port design – simply connect the KW1 transmitter unit to the variable line-out or subwoofer and connect to power using the micro USB connector.
The transmitter sends a 48kHz/24-bit audio stream to the KW1 receiver module which is in turn connected via the rear panel expansion port to a KEF Kube 8b, 10b, 12b or KF92 subwoofer. For added flexibility and increased system performance, an additional subwoofer can be connected via an optional second receiver.
Total subwoofer placement flexibility can now be achieved with the KW1’s maximum range of nearly 90 feet. Interference-free performance is obtained via the switchable 5.2GHz/5.8GHz RF transmitter / receiver set for optimal performance in even the most crowded RF environments. With its highly stable, high-resolution connection, the KW1 provides near lossless audio performance and flawless bass synchronization.
The KW1 is an amazing solution for flexible wireless convenience and unparalleled audio performance.
Suggested Retail Price: $199.99 / set, $99.99 for extra receiver unit.
