KEF Q50a Upward Firing Atmos Speakers launched
KEF has newly launched the Q50a ‘Dolby Atmos-enabled’ surround speaker, designed to enhance the new Q Series loudspeakers by making any KEF Q Series surround configuration compatible with the object based surround sound formats.
They will of course work with AV speaker systems other than KEF’s and should also be a good fit with DTS:X audio. The Q50a is an upward-firing speaker designed to be placed on top of front and rear satellite speakers, to deliver the ‘height’ sound information provided by compatible amplifiers.
The Q50a’s sound performance has been uned by KEF acoustic engineers to bring an immersive, cinematic verticality of Dolby Atmos sound into your home without mounting overhead speakers, using ‘precision ceiling reflection’. The Q50a can also be mounted on the wall using dedicated keyhole fixings.
The use of a Damped Tweeter Loading Tube – a rubber, chisel shaped damper – is designed to keep high frequencies sounding detailed and natural. At the heart of Q50a is the latest Q-Series Uni-Q driver array. It features a lighter cone return, improved spider suspension, and a new generation of cone neck decoupler to improve dynamics with an accurate, fast, and clean sonic response.
The Q50a is designed as a vital part of the Q Series family and its visual design shares consistent elements with other Q Series speakers.
The Q50a are available now priced at £450 per pair.
