The brand new KEF LS50 Meta, the predecessor to the original LS50 turned out to be a very successful speaker in a lot of departments. The new Meta takes you to a new revolutionary metamaterial absorption technology which has a rather complex, maze-like structure which helps to eliminate any undesirable soundwave reflections from the rear of the driver, this technology results in a much rich and purer sound, making it sound more natural. The previous LS50s was one of our favourites in the shop, in fact, one of our staff members went and brought a pair for his own system. They sounded incredible and looked the part, so we expect the new Meta to sound just as good. 

The price is marginally higher than the previous LS50 so they now have to compete with other speakers around this price point, these stay on point with the similar-looking KEF LSX wireless speakers but now have to go up against speakers from other manufacturers, it's a good thing KEF know how to make a speaker stand out. With a new LS50 comes a new wireless version of it, the KEF LS50 Wireless 2, see our listing for this speaker here (LS50 Active 2)

We believe that this speaker has a lot of potential with all sorts of systems, mainly for those who already have an eye for music, or those who are potentially just starting out with a larger budget, you can put these speakers in any sort of environment and even add them to your own home-theatre system if you're looking for a more dynamic approach to music or movies.
