KEF LS60 Wireless

KEF LS60 Wireless

We had heard something about this new project on the grapevine very recently. KEF’s new LS60 Wireless is a very different design to the LSX or LS50 Wireless, as it is a completely new design in its own right and a striking statement of how modern high-performance audio happens in the 2020s. By creating an active design that incorporates all kinds of streaming options for the listener, but by making it effectively like an active Baby-Bluetooth-Blade, this suddenly pushes the streaming concept front and centre.

We think this has the potential to be a new form of high-end audio, one without some of the baggage of what’s gone before. Watch this space…

From the KEF press release:

Maidstone, Kent, 12th May 2022

Celebrating 60 years of innovation in technology, performance and design, LS60 Wireless is KEF’s vision of high-fidelity for the future.

Over 60 years KEF has worked tirelessly to hone their craft and revolutionise the landscape of audio speakers. To mark this momentous milestone KEF has combined all their key technologies to deliver superlative acoustic performance in a distinctive, stylish and modern floorstanding speaker.

The LS60 Wireless is as powerful as it is attractive and its slim design makes room placement adaptable for everyone. The LS60 Wireless produces an impressively powerful, rich and full-bodied sound that evenly fills any space with high-fidelity audio.

60 years of acoustic innovation
LS60 Wireless is the world’s first Single Apparent Source wireless system. The unique technology is adapted from KEF’s flagship Blade speaker in which it aims to achieve the acoustic ideal of a point source where low, mid and high frequencies radiate from one point. This unique technology is only possible with KEF’s iconic Uni-Q driver array. Perfectly calibrated drivers that cover the entire bandwidth of the speaker are configured so that all frequencies appear to radiate from one single point. The result is noticeably more precise imaging and highly accurate sound across a wider listening area.

At the heart of LS60 Wireless’ Single Apparent Source configuration sits the remarkable 12th Generation Uni-Q with Metamaterial Absorption Technology (MAT™) driver array. Specially designed to perform at its best in the LS60 Wireless, this cutting-edge Uni-Q boasts a host of refinements including a tweeter gap damper and new Z-Flex surround that ensure a near-perfect transition of sound from the speaker into the room. With the MAT that acts as an acoustic black hole, 99% of the unwanted sound that comes from the rear of the tweeter is absorbed, eliminating the resulting distortion and providing a purer, more natural acoustic performance. Together, these innovations and refinements deliver a super-wide sweet spot, uncannily natural sound with vanishingly low distortion.

The slim profile of the speakers and close positioning of the drivers in the Single Apparent Source configuration call for a novel approach to bass driver design. As a result, LS60 Wireless features two pairs of Uni-Core driver arrays, first found on the KC62 subwoofer, maximising bass performance while minimising space. KEF’s P-Flex and Smart Distortion Control Technology also play their parts, ensuring that the low frequency performance is as balanced and detailed as the audio derived from the Uni-Q driver array. In addition, the bass drivers are mounted back-to-back in a force-cancelling arrangement, cabinet vibration is practically eliminated.

Smart and powerful
The LS60 Wireless delivers elevated sound with impact. This is because the Music Integrity Engine brings together the Single Apparent Source configuration and other KEF acoustic technologies, allowing them to work closely. The brain behind most of KEF’s wireless speakers, the Music Integrity Engine offers a suite of bespoke Digital Signal Processing algorithms (DSPs), enabling it to deliver a perfectly timed audio performance with better imaging and a tighter sound. The Music Integrity Engine for LS60 Wireless features low-frequency phase correction. This new feature does more than ensuring perfect timed performance, it delivers pinpoint timing exactly as if you were listening to the original sound.

The LS60 Wireless also has power in abundance, with a highly optimised mixture of bespoke amplification delivering a combined 1400 Watts of audiophile-grade power, with amplifiers dedicated to high, medium and low frequencies within each speaker. This smartly managed power means LS60 Wireless is capable of a beautifully balanced performance at any volume level.
