    Wish I would have purchased these sooner. They have great flexibility and fantastic sound. Punchy bass, smooth midrange, detailed, but smooth highs. Great speaker to use with Roon. Wish list for version Il, full Roon Ready support, mqa and dsd. Would be nice to be able to switch network ssid’s Without a reset and have the ability to swap left and right speakers in app.

    The LS50W replaced a traditional speaker/receiver system and there was no loss of sound. In fact, these KEFs sound better and take up a fraction o f the space. They are elegant to look at and produce great sound, even at low volume. I received my order the next day with free shipping! Helpful customer support (you may need to update the firmware). Expensive and a good value.

    I struggled a bit choosing these speakers because I have the wireless Dynaudio Tower speakers in my living room and they are terrific. I thought of networking them with Dynaudio bookshelf model in my upstairs office since I was very satisfied with their performance. However the KEF LS50W adds so much more value in that the connectivity, the onboard USB DAC, bluetooth and its subwoofer out made the decision easier to choose the KEF. Musically I think they are better by a bit in that they seem to have better higher end detail, a bit more spaciousness in the sound stage and are more forgiving of source material than the Dynaudio.

    I highly recommend this speaker system as both a great value and a great performer!

    I cannot believe the full, clear sound these produce! I have my Marantz CD player hooked up to the analog inputs on the KEF right speaker, and also listen to Tidal through the wifi application. My speakers are set up on heavy sound anchor 24" stands that improve the sound over flimsier stands. The wireless app could be improved (it sometimes does not allow seamless playback on Tidal) and it would be nice to see the display (which is on top of the right speaker) while sitting down, but the incredible sound more than makes up for these shortcomings. Usually small speakers sound anemic and not "fleshed out". These have the ability to produce tones accurately, with good dynamics and clarity, and bass response into the 40hz range. A winner!

    Sound is pretty astonishing coming out of these small, seemingly simple speakers. Of course, they're actually not simple at all under the hood, and they offer a plethora of connectivity options and modern streaming support.

    Between WAF-approved looks, great sound, and versatility, KEFs LS50W's really set the bar for "what's to come".

    The software and interfaces can use a good deal of work however....

    Beautiful reproduction of digital music. Warm, clearly defined, with gorgeous soundstage, this is an all-in-one system that takes the guess or "synergy" work out of having to match DACS with amps with speakers.
    To match this quality of sound, one would have to spend a great deal more money.
    If you love audiophile sound quality and have hi res files, this will fit the bill.
    As others have said, the app is not great, but I imagine it will be improved. It is, for us, a non issue due to the comparison to sound quality.
    We use Chord Mojo and Hugo 2, with Beyerdynamic T1 and T8 headphones, so this is our reference point of comparison. It is difficult to get the beauty of Chord/Beyer combination in open air music.
    The KEF LS50 with an expensive DAC/amp added will do it, but now the LS50 wireless does it without the expensive components.
    Classical music to Dylan to Springsteen to...well, it does it all. We don't know if adding a subwoofer is even needed!

    I own the original LS50's powered by a hybrid tube integrated, so I had high expectations. KEF have the knowledge and equipment to pull off a proper execution of sound improvement over the passives. Out of the box, these are real performers! I now have a couple weeks break in time and things are beginning to sound more relaxed. These are so revealing that each album takes on its own character.
    Give these a whirl and decide for yourself.

    These speakers are smaller than I anticipated from their photos. I bought them without first hearing them in the store and was very surprised by the very high quality of sound they produce given their dimensions. Setup was easy. Took them out of the box, connected the ethernet cable between the speakers, and then plugged them into the outlets. Documentation is excellent, and a guided process helps through the software setup. Sadly, the LS50W does require a wifi setup and the wifi app does not allow you to enter hidden network names. So you have to unhide your network name in order for the app to find it, and then rehide it to protect wifi security.

    The speakers sound a bit closed in the first day. Not very dynamic. But they open up after about 24 hours and continue to improve. DSP setup greatly assists getting bass tuned for the closeness to walls and other room dynamics. Trebble is extended. Soundstage is wide and convincing. Bass is far deeper than I ever imagined. Imaging is excellent. The LS50W plays loud without grain or distortion. Superb sounding speakers at a reference level.

    The outstanding sound is let down a bit by the simple remote, input selection process, wifi, and firmware updates:

    - The remote has no visible means to identify the input selected.

    - You can choose between wifi connection, analog, Toslink, or USB, but you can only see the selection on top of the speaker.

    - It is necessary to choose the wifi connection to change the speaker setup. If you are listening through the USB input, you have to change to the wifi input. Wifi takes a few seconds to reconnect.

    - firmware updates are only possible via a windows 10 pc connected to the speakers via USB. KEF should implement a network based firmware update process.

    The Android App KEF uses to manage the speaker settings from a phone is not well designed and it is a pity there is only one app. It would be great for KEF and the public if KEF would publish its LS50W API's and allow 3rd parties to develop better apps for the speakers.

    For most people, these technical inconveniences are small in comparison to the convenience of a very small set of reference quality hifi speakers that simplify equipment purchasing and setup. I'm sure KEF will improve interface and apps in the future and powered monitors will become more common and easier to use, changing the relationships of Amplifiers, Pre-Amplifiers, Speakers, Cables, and sources forever.

    If sound is your primary objective, the KEF LS50W is about the easiest entry point into superb hifi.

    There is really no point going into the specific details on how these speakers sound. If you are reading these reviews, you probably already have a good idea of what to expect.

    That said, the detail, spaciousness, and dynamics you get with these speakers are a steal for the price. I had a violinist listen to these after I set them up and she could not believe that they were able to reproduce the vibrations and dynamics from the bow. In her mind, it sounded the same as from a violinist's perspective when playing. She couldn't even put everything she was feeling into words.

    In the end, just know that you will not find a better stereo setup for the price. What KEF has done here is nothing short of remarkable.

    Purchased a pair and they actually had a mould defect on the speaker and Kef replaced them no problem. I have had a few App issues but sent feedback and I find Kef listen and are responsive. They sound great, look great and deliver on there promise. Would definitely recommend. I have replaced my Copland Cd player, musical fidelity amp, Dynaudio speakers and have no regrets. Perfect for the minimalist lifestyle.

"Perhaps the most game changing product I have encountered in quite some time, Kef's LS50 Wireless certainly is it...Foundationally, this truly is a magical product in ways difficult to quite comprehend at first. First, Kef has done a fantastic job of creating a scalable, upgradeable platform from which to begin with. When I received my pair of LS50W, they offered up great value across the board with fully fledged high-end chops: like AURALiC's Polaris, LS50W is an endgame digital destination capable of acting as silver plate for just about all your analog or digital sources. But wait, there is more. Much more in fact. With several software updates over the year—at zero cost to the customer (think Apple iOS updates that add significant functionality over time)—LS50W has in fact added quite a few more KOs to said endgame: native Tidal? Check. Native Spotify? Check. Native Roon? Check."

"The sound quality of the LS50W varied most critically with volume. Resolution at low-to-mid volumes was good, with excellent imagery and placement, and an overall engaging level of quality. Turning the volume knob over, however (or in this case, jamming the + button over and over), resulted in magic. These babies love to play loud. Bass is just exceptional for something this small/compact, and I loved it. The soundstage was 3-D and wholly holographic."

 KEF LS50 Wireless Review & Reviewer's Choice Award SoundStage! Access
LS50 Wireless Review & Reviewer's Choice Award
"KEF’s LS50W is an outstanding loudspeaker. Its build quality, finish, and technical prowess are beyond reproach, and its sound quality remains faithful to both KEF’s design principles and to the original LS50. That KEF has been able to stuff so much hardware and DSP know-how into one of their best-ever speaker designs and then charge only $2199.99/pair for it -- $700 more than the original -- is a mystery to me. The fact that it sounds better than the original is all the better."

 KEF LS50 Wireless Review DigitalTrends
LS50 Wireless Review
"Sound is crystalline, set before your ears with sparkling purity, impressive expression, and effortless extension. Music sounds so transparent and articulate you feel you could almost dive in and touch each instrument as it’s playing, and each sound is placed deftly within the wide soundstage, occupying a distinct and nearly tangible point in the air. Details are exposed with organic resonance, revealing each tick and glint of an instrument or voice’s timbre, and just as importantly, the space that surrounds it."

LS50 Wireless Review
"That the LS50 Wireless are rather grand, I would hope you understood by now—I can't think of any component in recent memory that has been this much fun to unbox, setup and take around the house, room to room so to speak, identifying its various commitments to multi-room, multi-condition sound... This is the future, no question."

"It's a futuristic home music system and a classic at the same time. KEF's technology and its Uni-Q driver dispersion is engineered to deliver the listener a full range speaker suited for both the desktop or a living room setup. For any audiophile and music lover this system is the easy way to have an audiophile system without all the separate components."

LS50 Wireless Review
"Now the active KEF setup competes with a passive LS50 system costing ten times its retail price. So sharp is the LS50 Wireless' value-for-money quotient that one could add the Sonore microRendu and Bluesound Node 2 and still find oneself sitting pretty with pie-in-the-sky performance/$, looking down from on high on the separates and integrateds required by the red boxes. From the LS50 Wireless system we get performance that exceeds the sum of its parts way beyond that which is expected or usual."

Knock Out Award & Product of the Year award 2016
"Something for audiophiles, something for mainstreamers – after all, it’s in the LS50 Wireless’ DNA. As a straddler of worlds, the KEFs walk away not only with a Knockout Award but also DAR’s Product of the Year award for 2016. If this product doesn’t convince audiophiles of the legitimacy of active loudspeakers, nothing will."
