The following is a press release issued by KEF.
Marlboro, NJ | November 19th, 2018 – KEF proudly announces the addition of Spotify Connect and Roon to LSX, the mighty two-speaker, all-wireless music system that puts the high-end sound KEF is known for in an affordable system easily integrated into virtually any listening room or lifestyle.
LSX is fully wireless – stream from a multitude of sources and listen to true stereo with KEF’s proprietary between-speaker wireless connection.
Now, with built-in Spotify Connect, Spotify’s entire library can be streamed directly from the cloud without interruption via high-quality network connections. On their handheld devices, users can watch videos, play games, answer phone calls and more, without causing pauses or interruptions to the music.
With the LSX integrated Roon Labs endpoint, you can manage your music library from a networked hard-drive or desktop device allowing you to enjoy all the features of Roon’s impressive metadata collection with up-to-the-minute information on all of your favorite artists and songs, while using Roon’s one-of-a-kind single-core music engine to hear your digital music files with the subtlety and nuance the artist intended. With an account you can also access Tidal’s massive high-resolution music library via Roon for integration into music you have stored locally.
For a limited time, starting November 19, 2018, you can register your LSX or LS50 Wireless music systems and get 6 months of free Tidal HiFi Music Streaming for free. Registration is easy and direct using KEF’s Control app.
Adding Spotify Connect and Roon to your LSX is straightforward and simple through KEF’s over-the-air update capabilities. LSX also features Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity as well as TOSLINK optical and line-level Auxiliary inputs.
LSX shares much of the cutting-edge acoustic engineering that has made the award-winning LS50 Wireless famous within the audio community. LSX features KEF’s Uni-Q driver array, a signature innovation that radically improves stereo imaging across a much wider listening area than conventional speaker designers.
Combined with KEF’s highly advanced Music Integrity Engine™, a cutting-edge collection of bespoke Digital Signal Processing algorithms that ensure accurate time alignment and phase coherence, LSX delivers audio quality heretofore unheard of in a speaker system in this price range. Small enough to sit on shelves, desktops or flank a TV, LSX produces a massive and deep sound field that is in complete contrast to its physical size.
The suggested retail price for LSX will be $1,100 and the speakers will be available through Magnolia Home Theater retailers, Amazon, KEF Direct and other participating KEF Authorized Dealers.
