KEF LS50 Wireless II Now Roon Ready

KEF's Applause Award-winning LS50 Wireless II has received Roon Ready certification from Roon Labs.

KEF's LS50 Wireless II started this year by achieving Applause Award-winning status thanks to featuring “...detailed and nuanced sound signature, superb imaging and lots of power” and “fine wireless implementation, ease of set-up and useful connectivity options”. Today the KEF wireless music system adds Roon Ready to its long list of attributes, including Metamaterial Absorption Technology (MAT) and 12th generation Uni-Q driver array.

The LS50 Wireless II was launched in September 2020 and is KEF's first Roon Ready speaker. Much more than just a pair of wireless speakers, the compact cabinets house innovative audio technologies, advanced Digital Signal Processing in the form of KEF's Music Integrity Engine, and 760W of custom-designed amplification in a true active configuration.
