KEF ACTIVATES AIRPLAY 2 FOR LSX SPEAKERS

Like the gift that keeps giving, KEF's LSX wireless stereo speakers are now AirPlay 2 enabled which brings new capabilities that allow users to effortlessly stream music or podcasts from an iPhone, iPad, Mac, HomePod and Apple TV,  and perfectly in sync to LSX systems.

Nigel Ng, General Manager at Advance Audio which distributes KEF in Australia, told StereoNET:

With this update, LSX will receive multi-room audio capabilities so users can play audio in any room from any room, move music from one room to another or play the same song everywhere, using Apple Music. You can even send the sound from an Apple TV to multiple systems, ensuring you don't miss a thing.

AirPlay 2 functionality joins a long and impressive feature list of this compact but intelligent wireless speaker system, which already includes Apple Music support, Spotify Connect, TIDAL, Roon, Bluetooth, as well as additional optical and analog inputs.

With AirPlay 2, you get the added benefit of streaming music to multiple audio devices at the same time.  It also allows you to ask Siri voice assistant to play music in a particular room or throughout the home.

The firmware update has been released today and is deployed 'Over-The-Air' via the KEF Control app.
