KEF LSX II - upgrade compact speakers with Hi-Fi sound

The first generation KEF LSX has received extremely positive reviews from fans of quality sound. The novelty received new connectivity and some technical features of older models.

KEF LSX II received a recognizable design from the first generation, and the characteristics of the speaker remained unchanged. Higher performance of the system was achieved through the use of DSP and software from KEF LS50 II and LS60W.

The 200-watt LSX II uses W2’s new streaming platform, which lets you stream Amazon Music, Qobuz, Tidal, Deezer and Internet radio stations via KEF Connect, while support for AirPlay 2, Google Chromecast, Roon and Bluetooth complements the range of smart features.

The choice of wired connection is expanded by HDMI eARC and USB-C connectors, which allows you to easily connect speakers to a TV or laptop. When used with a compatible TV, the HDMI CEC function allows you to adjust the speaker volume directly from the remote control.
