The Future of Hi-Fi Is Here: Introducing the LS60 Wireless

MAIDSTONE, KENT, UK – 12 May 2022: Products that defy categorization and completely changeLS60 Wireless the audio landscape come along only once or twice in a generation. KEF’s new LS60 Wireless is a powerful wireless music system that revolutionizes and expands the potential of self-contained, all-in-one music systems.

For over 60 years, KEF has tirelessly honed its craft while constantly changing the audio landscape. To mark this momentous milestone, we have incorporated our key technologies to deliver a paradigm-shifting music system that features superior acoustic performance in an elegantly timeless, modern floorstanding loudspeaker.

Next Generation Single Apparent Source

In 2010, KEF introduced the world’s first Single Apparent Source loudspeaker - Blade. To this day, KEF’s ground-breaking Uni-Q technology and unwavering pursuit of audio perfection have made Blade and Blade Two towering standards for high-fidelity loudspeakers.

With the LS60 Wireless – the World’s First Single-Apparent Source Wireless Audio System – KEF has once again raised the standard.

The specially designed LS60 Wireless Uni-Q features a host of refinements first introduced with the recently announced Blade and Reference Meta products. The remarkable 12th Generation Uni-Q with Metamaterial Absorption Technology (MAT™) driver array is at the heart of LS60 Wireless’ amazing detail. The MAT™ disk is an acoustic black hole that absorbs 99% of the unwanted backwave sound energy from the rear of the tweeter, eliminating the resulting distortion and providing pure, natural sound.

Two pair of Uni-Core drivers in each cabinet maximise bass response while maintaining the aesthetically pleasing and acoustically necessary slim profile of the LS60 Wireless. Uni-Core was first introduced with KEF’s KC62 subwoofer, a micro-subwoofer that delivers 105 dB SPL in a footprint not much larger than a soccer ball.

Uni-Core’s P-Flex Surround and Smart Distortion Control Technology are integral to the balanced and detailed bass performance of the KC62, and now the LS60 Wireless. Furthermore, the bass drivers are mounted in a force-cancelling array to reduce distortion-causing cabinet vibration to the point of elimination.

Smart and Powerful

For unmatched performance in a wireless, active music system, KEF’s powerful Music Integrity Engine™ has been specifically designed to work with the innovations featured in the LS60 Wireless. The Music Integrity Engine™ provides a suite of custom Digital Signal Processing (DSP) algorithms, including low-frequency phase correction for perfect timing between all of LS60 Wireless’ drive units, for a performance that is nearly indistinguishable from the original recording.

Each LS60 Wireless cabinet boasts a combined 1400 Watts of audiophile-worthy power, with dedicated amplifiers for the high, middle and low frequencies. Designed specifically for the Music Integrity Engine™, cabinet volume and driver configuration, these agile amplifiers produce pure and balanced performance regardless of listening level.

Choose a wired connection between cabinets for high-resolution playback (24bit/192kHz) or use KEF’s low-latency intelligent wireless interspeaker connection for exceptionally reliable cable-free listening up to 24bit/96kHz resolution.

Intuitive Connectivity. Play Anything. Hear Everything.

No matter how you stream your music, LS60 Wireless has you covered out-of-the-box with Wi-Fi, Apple AirPlay 2, Google Chromecast and Bluetooth compatibility. Stream Amazon Music, Qobuz, and Deezer or tune in to Internet radio and podcasts via the KEF Connect app. You can also use native apps to stream directly from Spotify Connect, Tidal and QPlay. LS60 Wireless is Roon Ready.

No matter your preference, LS60 Wireless is compatible with the most popular file formats for reliable and convenient high-resolution streaming.

To further enhance your audio experience, connect LS60 Wireless to your turntable, CD player, game console or any other wired audio device, or connect to your television via HDMI eARC for high-quality two-channel sound. A dedicated output on each cabinet allows for simple connection to one subwoofer or a stereo pair of KEF subwoofers.

LS60 Wireless supports PCM files up to 24bit/384kHz, as well as DSD and MQA decoding. In partnership with MQA, Tidal – one of KEF’s compatible streaming platforms – delivers Master Quality Authenticated recordings directly from the source.

This level of choice, connectivity and control is the foundation for an unrivalled user experience.

The KEF Connect app effortlessly connects the LS60 Wireless to your home network; after connection the app is the powerful interface to all aspects of the LS60 Wireless’ performance. Use Normal or Expert mode to fine-tune the LS60 Wireless to best suit your room and listening tastes.

Impossibly Slim. Made Possible.

The result of a joint design effort between renowned designer Michael Young and our in-house KEF product design team, the LS60 Wireless’ extremely slim profile offers a wide range of placement possibilities.

LS60 Wireless is available in three elegant matte finishes: Titanium Grey, Mineral White or Royal Blue. These colours have been explicitly chosen to complement any interior design approach: Titanium Grey and Mineral White integrate and blend into your living space, while the striking Royal Blue is perfect for anyone wishing to make a bold statement.
