KEF has announced the launch of three new finishes for its globally acclaimed LS50 loud speakers. The new finishes are Racing Red, Titanium Grey and Frosted Black. The LS50 was designed to celebrate KEF’s 50th anniversary, and was conceived as a ‘mini monitor’ derived from the legendary LS3/5a, to bring professional studio monitor performance into the home. The three new finishes are designed to enable the LS50s to be compatible with a wide range of contemporary interior designs.
The new Frosted Black version utilises a cool matte finish and KEF’s striking signature blue cone, also used on the white finish, while the Racing Red finish is perfectly designed to complement bold and dramatic interior designs. The Titanium Grey finish uses a beautiful copper cone, based on the driver designed for KEF’s Reference Series loudspeakers. All three new finishes use intricately layered textures between the cabinet, baffle, cone and driver surround, to extend and fulfil the aesthetic promise of the LS50s’ original design philosophy. At the LS50’s heart beats the a KEF Uni-Q driver, which is said to be capable of “mastering an exceptional range of dynamic highs and lows over a large listening area”. The three stylish new finishes ensure that the LS50 leads the way as the speaker of choice for design as wel l as their exceptional performance. Price £800, available now.
