KEF LS50 Meta Bookshelf Speaker - test


It was hard to image how KEF were going to improve upon the LS50 which has been a staple of HiFi and Home Cinema systems for the past 8 years, but the legendary LS50 has been elevated to the next level, in all sonic aspects, with the introduction of Metamaterial giving birth to KEFs latest incarnation the LS50 Meta.

The World's First Speakers with Metamaterial 

LS50 Meta is a highly precise, emotionally engaging loudspeaker built on revolutionary acoustic technology. Designed around the Uni-Q 12th Generation with Metamaterial Absorption Technology driver array, this solid, compact loudspeaker is capable of delivering detailed sound anywhere in the room.


“KEF has taken an excellent speaker and made it even better with its innovative Metamaterial tech. The LS50 Metas are now the class leader at this level.” - September 2020, What Hi-Fi?

LS50 Meta - HiFi News, Outstanding Product

The LS50 Meta - especially when you consider its ~£1,000 price - ticks every box for a small speaker: huge soundstage, generous bass, terrific imaging. Satisfying? Try 'supernatural'.' - May 2021
