KEF at the little audio company,

The original KEF LS50 loudspeaker garnered a plethora of awards and five star reviews, redefining the capabilities of small box loudspeakers. Such high performance from a small box at an attainable price, and their popularity with reviewers and hifi enthusiasts alike, will insure they become a British hifi classic in years to come. On many occasions I've referred to the LS50 as "mini Reference", such is their performance.

The new LS50 will continue this success, and push the boundaries further again, by incorporating KEF's new Metamaterial Absorption Technology (MAT). This technology has been created by KEF in order to absorb as much sound energy as possible that escapes from the rear of the driver, in order for it to not come back and effect the driver in any way, or add to what you should be hearing. The result is a cleaner presentation with less distortion of the intended sound.

KEF UniQ cutaway,

The LS50's UniQ is already a compact work of technological art, the result of decades of development and refinement - the new Metamaterial Absorption Technology greatly furthers its capabilities.

The two-way UniQ array produces a single point-source, removing phase issues between the drivers, producing precise imaging and making them ideal near-field monitors. The mid/bass driver acts as the high frequency's waveguide, controlling HF dispersion throughout 360 degrees, producing an even in-room response, with less need for room treatment. Using multiples in a home theatre system produces a seamless soundfield around the listener.
