    LS50 binding posts

    I'm currently running bare wire cable into the binding posts on my LS50s but purely from an aesthetic point of view I'm going to fit some banana plugs. I've just looked at the binding posts and there are plastic plugs in place, I guess to stop people plugging EU AC sockets in like you get on the...

    Subwoofer for LS50 metas and Naim atom

    Hi all, Relatively new here so go easy. I've recently purchased a naim uniti atom and some Kef ls50 meta (royal blue) as a in-between solution to having an music setup which I'm currently using. Then at some point in the future I'll be adding a t.v and sub to compete a 2.1 setup. At this...

    Question 'Narrow' amplifier for powering LS50's

    G'day sports Looking for an amp with subwoofer out to power a pair of old KEF LS50's. The amp needs to sit in a shelf 39cm3 so width is proving to be an issue with normal sized HiFi gear. I've taken a quick look at the Cyrus One and some of the Rega equipment but none seem to have the sub out...

    Upgrade Marantz PM7000N for better phono stage with KEF LS50

    Hi - my first post. During Covid-19 lockdown, my 20 year old Arcam amp had its chips. So started the search for a new amp. I decided on a Marantz PM7000N thinking it would be good for the Google smart speakers i have (which isn't that great with voice controls) and the KEF LS50s i've got. It...

    Upgrade from Emit 20

    Hi I have a setup of Elicit R and Emit 20 in an untreated room of 16X12 feet, from a Node2i. Listen to 60-70s Rock Classics, Prog Rock, Jazz, Guitars, little Metal. I got the setup without demo, though I like the sound of it, though a little more lower end than what I like, and maybe not that...

    Upgrading from an AV Receiver for LS50

    Hi Folks, As documented elsewhere on the site I'm trying to improve the sound from my KEF LS50, and am flirting with the idea of swapping my Yamaha RXA1010 AVR for a stereo amplifier. At the moment, some tracks are sounding a little too harsh, so I'd prefer something on the warm side. I'd like...

    New system in the making

    hey everyone, I'm 6 months away of finally having my home theater set up and just want to see opinions on my speakers decision. I've decided to go for a 5.1.4 set up with everything kef apart from sub. The 2 mains will be q750 and q250 centre. I plan to have 4 q50a atoms speakers, the 2 front...

    Question Kef LS50 passive.

    Hi, I have a pair of Kef LS50's that I currently have stored away. The only available amp I have to use with them is a Cambridge Audio CXA-60. This would work with them, but I think is a little underpowered to get the best from them. An alternative would be to place them in my home theatre setup...

    Advice needed on how to get the most out of my Hegel H80 + Kef LS50's

    Hey there! I bought a used Hegel H80 amp last year. I used them to power my former Kef Q100's via USB. This sounded pretty great, but I bought the Hegel so it could someday power a pair of LS50's. That moment came a couple of weeks ago when I saw a change to buy a nice open box deal. I listen...

    Question KEF LS50 Wireless.... opinions please?

    Hi, I considering putting a ‘Wanted’ add in the classifieds for a pair of these but I can’t really audition and I don’t want to wait weeks for the lockdown to finish. I‘m very aware of the properties and benefits of properly active speakers, as I’ve owned various Avi actives in the past so...

    Kef LS50 pairing

    Hi all, Thinking of pulling the trigger on a pair of LS50s and hoping some of you have similar setups. Currently running an AVR450 + Hugo 2 + Mission 753 freedom. My questions are - has anyone paired the LS50 with either a 450/hugo 2 or both? Have you found it too bright? Thanks

    Question Marantz SR8012 + kef ls50

    Hi, I’m looking at the kef ls50 for HT as a base layer and wanted opinions on whether the Marantz SR8012 would struggle in the amplifier department? I’ve also considered the Arcam 850 but I’m put off having had the Arcams in the past, to many big etc Thanks in advance

    KEF LS50 vs B&W 706-S2 - Rare chance to compare

    Tharbamar on YouTube has recent changed his beloved LS50 for a pair of B&W 706-S2 and has created a Demo of the two speakers. Both sound fantastic, but I think the 706 have a bit more detail. Very close call though. You can decide for yourself, but remember that YouTube videos favor Mid/High...

    Hi all, Been following the thread a lot and found lots of helpful posts from knowledgeable people! I recently bought a KEF LS50 Wireless system. The sound is amazing but it's lacking in the bass department. I have read in a lot of posts that the LS50s have serious bass for their size but it...
