Very disappointing that they didn’t include their meta-material technology!Do you guys also think that the release has been a bit too precipitated? Kef argues that adding metamaterial would make it too expensive. The speakers seem to have no hardware changes except the DSP and connections (particularly on the streaming side). That makes me think it´s a bit of a missed oportunity on a device that was quite good already but missed the improvements we saw in the Wireless II.
Don´t get me wrong, the LSX sound very well, but I think they could have pushed them further on the II version.
KEF did a 6.5-inch Uni-Q for their entry level series Q350.Sorry, I meant larger than their 5.25" drivers.
I don´t dissagree with your statement but I´m not fully convinced either. The LSX are, at least to my eyes, the kind of speakers you´d use in a home office, a room or in a very small space. The difference with the Wireless II should be in the spl and the capacity to fit in very tight spaces.People, I imagine a HUGE percentage of LS50W2 owners use one or more subwoofers (I myself have 2 KC62s hooked up). Putting the 12th gen meta driver in the LSX2 would steal a TON of sales from the LS50W2. That's why they didn't do that.
Agreed. To me, the LSX are the evolution of the old Aiwa or Sanyo micro systems and perfect to plug to a PC.At 800 eur/pair currently in a few online shops (germany) and with more offers likely to come due to the release of v2, i find the original lsx a great value for, for instance, a home office. No need for dac, amp, nothing, in many use cases. Plug and enjoy. And the looks are good to.
I wish i had a use fo them. They only miss a built in headphone amp
