LSX, the compact two-speaker wireless music system from KEF, will support Apple AirPlay 2 following a software update available since June 3, 2019. AirPlay 2 brings new capabilities that allow users to effortlessly stream music or podcasts from an iPhone, iPad, Mac, HomePod and Apple TV, perfectly in sync, to LSX systems.
With this update, LSX will receive multi-room audio capabilities so users can play audio in any room from any room, move music from one room to another or play the same song everywhere, using Apple Music. Users can even send the sound from an Apple TV to multiple systems, ensuring they don’t miss a thing.
"LSX is the latest step in KEF’s continued development of cutting-edge technologies and innovative high-performance audio products. AirPlay 2 perfectly complements LSX’s ease of use with a streamlined setup process through the Apple Home app. All the KEF app functions are still available, including the powerful speaker sound settings. By working to make the LSX AirPlay 2 compatible, KEF proves that giving its users the best listening experience possible is integral. Updating to AirPlay 2 is a seamless experience, with the new firmware deployed Over-The-Air through the KEF Control app," the company announced.
The KEF LSX wireless music system already supported Apple Music, Spotify Connect (including Free users), TIDAL, and Roon, apart from featuring Bluetooth (including Qualcomm aptX support), optical and analogue inputs, ensuring that almost every music source is covered. The system features 2.4GHz/5GHz Dual-band Wi-Fi connectivity with DLNA/uPNP support. Each LSX speaker features a KEF 4.5" Uni-Q driver, FEA designed cabinet with hidden heat-sink, and the brand's dedicated time correcting Music Integrity Engine, powered by 2x 30W + 2x 70W Class D amplifiers. The system's proprietary wireless inter-speaker connection supports 24-bit/48kHz audio, with an optional wired connection to expand support to 24-bit/96kHz transmission.
KEF LSX speakers are available in Maroon, Blue, Gloss White, Black, and Olive finishes and sell for a suggested retail price of $1,100 (pair).
