A film about the new KEF LSX Soundwave edition

KEF LSX Soundwave film

What does KEF + Terence Conran equal…. well the new LSX Soundwave Edition , featuring in my new film.

Covered in a new fabric called Kvadrat and meant to tie stylishly into living spaces, I try these speakers against Totem’s KIN Play in this film and in homage to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart too.

The notion that cheaper HiFi is inferior in the context of value for money, is firmly consigned to the HiFi nonsense scrap heap, here. These KEF’s sonic modus operandi is neutrality, dispersion for size, and very decent dynamic and detail capabilities at the price.

I'm an audio lover who likes sharing experiences of faithfully reproduced audio in a CREDIBLE, BALANCED and ENGAGING way. I’m interested in products; their looks, functionality and features, and most importantly how they sound! My reviews keep technicalities easy, as I believe great audio is non exclusive and to be enjoyed by all! It's all about the music!
