Roon and Spotify Connect come to the KEF LSX

  • Well, that didn’t take long. Three weeks ago, British loudspeaker manufacturer KEF announced their latest system-in-a-box / active loudspeaker, the LSX. Catch up here.

    Today, KEF has announced the availability of a firmware upgrade that will add support for native Roon streaming (‘Roon Tested‘) and Spotify Connect. No more Google Chromecast workaround for Roon – the LSX will appear as a directly streamable endpoint. The LSX will also appear under ‘available devices’ within the Spotify app.

    Users can apply the Roon/Spotify firmware upgrade via the KEF Control app.
