The opinion out there is that KEF’s LS50 Meta’s are the speakers to beat around £€1000, including awards from What HiFi and EISA. I previously reviewed them here.
They are great speakers but as I explain in my video review on YouTube, the new Dynaudio Emit 20’s are the more wowing, and engaging speaker, and now trump them in my opinion. They are now the speakers to beat under £€1000.
To boot, you also get a lower price by around £300 in the UK, a wider more detailed and dispersive sound over the KEF’s relative smoothness and rolled off top treble, which departs from the sound of the previous KEF LS50 variant.
That said, the KEF’s do fit into smaller spaces and they are the speakers for smoother audiophile tastes, the Dynaudio’s representing the more incisive and detailed of audiophile delectation.
But one thing I mentioned in my video that genuinely set me onto liking these speakers is how they present timbral information, which I also comment on this video. Watch it here, subscribe and tell me what YOU THINK? As always I’ve given all my opinions in a brutally honest fashion, in a fun and engaging way and HiFi is the entertainment business after all!
