To commemorate their 50th Anniversary, KEF have released the LS50, an modern version of the old LS3/5a studio monitor that KEF worked on with the BBC back in the 1960's. They have been updated using technology from KEF's Blade loudspeaker.

KEF Audio are about to unleash their R series range of loudspeakers onto the UK market. These have been carefully designed using much of the technology used in their highly innovative Blade 'apparent point source' loudspeaker.

The Cutting Edge....
At the Munich High End show in 2009, KEF Audio showcased a concept speaker, the Concept Blade, a no-holds-barred exercise to show KEF's technological abilities. The project took three years of extensive design and testing, and was highly acclaimed at the German show. KEF felt the Concept Blade was too good to keep from it's many fans, and two years later, at the 2011 Munich show, unveiled the Blade - an attainable version, which KEF claim actually improve in certain areas over the original concept. This radical, 'single apparent source' loudspeaker marks KEF's 50th anniversary.
More details on the Blade loudspeaker can be viewed at our forum here.
KEF have launched a complete redesign of their iQ series, which makes way for the new Q Series. Nothing is the same - cabinet, drivers, driver layout, even the sound - it's a whole new speaker. I attended the UK dealer launch down in Kent at the Chilston Park hotel. I took along my camera, but unfortunately no photos were allowed :/
All models are available in Black Oak, English Cherry, European Walnut.
