The compact Metal art piece has inherited the MUON’s sculptural organic form and breakthrough sound technologies
Singapore, @mcgallen #microwireinfo, August 29, 2017 – KEF, one of the originators of British hi-fi sound, has unveiled the latest version of its MUO wireless speakers, the MUO Metal. Created from an ongoing collaboration between KEF and visionary designer Ross Lovegrove, the newly released MUO Metal with distinguishing reflective finishing pays tribute to Lovegrove’s iconic MUON loudspeaker as well as embodying the engineering excellence for which KEF is renowned.
The MUO Metal’s distinctive polished-chrome body features a subtle hairline finish, which requires special expertise to achieve. Its sleek, reflective exterior echoes the look of the original MUON and exudes Lovegrove’s unique and timeless style.
The MUO Metal’s sound is equally impressive, offering high-definition acoustics despite its compact size. Containing miniature Uni-Q driver arrays, the MUO Metal will fill any room with exceptionally accurate sound, reaching all listeners equally no matter where they sit. Add to this a clean, tightly controlled bass, sweet, natural treble and fluid midrange, and you will soon realise you’re in the presence of something truly remarkable.
Whether you’re indoors or out, at home, at work or on the move, the versatile KEF MUO Metal has the capability to stream superlative CD-like quality sound wirelessly from most smart devices or computers via Bluetooth aptX® for up to 12 hours. With NFC Android devices, simply “tap-to-pair” for effortless streaming of music in seconds.
KEF believes that everyone should experience the highest quality of reproduced audio content and the MUO Metal delivers from this aspect too. Thanks to an internal sensor, it automatically optimises its output to suit both horizontal and vertical orientation, giving flawless, full-bodied sound whichever way it is positioned. It can also be paired with a second MUO speaker in “dual connect” party mode for larger gatherings to give excellent scale of soundstage.
