Singapore, @mcgallen #microwireinfo, February 9, 2018 – Five years since the launch of the anniversary model LS50, KEF has just launched a special LS50 Black Edition.
Featuring the highly acclaimed Uni-Q driver array in black set in a matt black cabinet coated with metallic powder, the LS50 Black Edition also has a special plaque featuring a unique serial number for each pair of speakers. The finished product in all black renews the celebratory context of the original LS50 – with added authority and sleek sophistication.
Each pair also features a unique Black Edition trim ring and black Chrome plated terminals – all of which combine to convey disproportionately huge impact and gravitas in a bookshelf-sized package.
Created to extend the LS50 range, this new Black Edition also contains all the state-of-the-art acoustic end engineering innovations found in the standard finish LS50, guaranteeing a top-class musical performance to complement the visual appeal. A range that four years ago won gushing praise, and swept the Product of the Year awards across highly respected reviewers such as What Hi-Fi? and Stereophile, among many others. With What Hi-Fi? summarising their review as ‘Simply brilliant’.
