UPDATED! KEF LS50 loudspeaker gets extreme makeover

  • Some news announcements require wordy explanation: designers intent, tech specs, pricing, availability etc. For some though, pictures are the most effective method of communication.

    Riding roughshod over maxim that it’s sound (and not looks) that matter most are British manufacturer KEF.  This week the British manufacturer announce a further extension to their LS50 line, perhaps this decade’s most popular standmount loudspeaker.

    The LS50 will soon be available in three limited edition finishes: Racing Red, Frosted Black and Titanium Grey.

    Observe:

    Pricing remains TBA but a doff of the cap goes to Tokyo’s Stereo Sound, whom I visited last week, for the heads up on this.

    UPDATED 6th December 2015:

    A visit to Apollo Hifi in Marrickville (Sydney) gave rise to these happy snaps that show the new colours in real life context:
