KEF Unveils Luxury All-In-One High-Fidelity Streaming Audio System
KEF has released the LS60 Wireless active streaming audio system. LS60 Wireless is crafted to celebrate KEF’s 60 years of acoustic innovation and showcase the company’s vision of high-fidelity sound for the future.
The LS60 Wireless system is comprised of two floorstanding speakers measuring 43 inches tall, 5.1 inches wide and 12.6 inches deep (base plinth not included in width and depth measurements), weighing in at 70 lbs. per speaker. Inside each speaker cabinet houses a combined 1400 watts of audiophile-worthy power with dedicated amplifiers for the high, middle, and low frequencies. The central newly designed four-inch Uni-Q driver featuring a host of bespoke refinements delivers a super-wide, natural field of sound with low distortion. Two pairs of KEF Uni-Core drivers flank the sides of each cabinet to maximize bass response within the system’s footprint. The combined driver placement within the speaker cabinet is adapted from KEF’s Blade Series ($27k-$35k / pair), and is the first streaming all-in-one audio system to be a true point source configuration, according to KEF.
