It seems KEF is about to launch a brand new speaker. Any guesses what it could be?
Too early to replace LS50 Meta…
Q series Meta?

I’ve signed up - no details as yet… but wild speculation is fun :) cabinet edge on the right hand side looks rounded quite significantly - I had understood that was expensive to do, particularly for the Q series unless perhaps using a material other than wood for the cabinet, as Rega have done with the Kytes and Ayas.

As I say, all just wild speculation.

They posted this on 10th August and to me this picture looks like LSX.
The world doesn’t need another small active speaker so I hope it’s something else.

It’s a three-way (I don’t think there is a Q with a three-way crossover), you can tell from the driver surround, the two- and two-and-a-half-ways have their z-flex surround. The rounded lateral edge looks just like the LS60, so my guess is a black LS60. I don’t believe the cabinet is ideal for a passive version to be possible, the low volume would result in pretty poor bass extension.
