    They're built as something of a tech showcase that went to market as an anniversary special.

    They have a certain technical brilliance about them and it's hard to find anything better at the same price point.

    I loved mine... now wifey has taken them over.


    Only thing is you have to like the Kef sound which can sometimes be a little bright. I like Kef clarity & when paired with a warm amp, they give a great combo of warmth and clarity.



    But, if that red thing's yours... you can probably get better ;)

    LS50s are a unique speaker in which the entire cabinet was designed around the driver, not the other way around. Gives it some unique characteristics. It's probably one of the best speakers you can get especially for a desktop setup due to their small size.

    Best 2.0 in existence? Depends. It's all subjective past a certain price point. You could grab Kef Ref 1's for £5k. Or the Ref 3's. That would smash the LS50s into oblivion, but they'd require a lot more space.

    LS50s can fit into smaller spaces so they're better for most people, don't have to build a room around them. However, I see a LOT of opinions saying they really need a sub integrated with them if you listen to bass heavy music.

    For most people who don't want to deal with any faff, KEF brought out the active LS50s. Don't need anything else beyond a source to plug them into and they're good to go. No amps, DACs, cable faff etc needed. They sound better than the LS50s as well due to DSP onboard. Downside? They cost £2000.

    One thing to note, however - you'll never truly appreciate quality sound if you immediately start off with the best system in existence. It's probably best to start with lower systems and work your way up.

    I am not convinced that is his, though if it is we definitely need more pictures.

    Nice! :eek:

    Although this is in another league to every other post here, we need another new thread entitled 'Images of really expensive items I have purchased' just so us plebs can continue to post our mundane stuff in this one

    Why would anyone sign up to this forum in particular just to post their newly purchased LaFerrari and ask how best to spend £10k on speakers? Bizarre, whether genuine or not

    It’s not his, he’s a joker. Did you see his introductory post?

    “I’m just a bloke with loadsamoney”

    He’s either a bull*******, in which case we don’t want him here, or he’s another ElliottJames. Again, someone we do could do without. Methinks he could be a banned poster mucking about. Even his sig rig looks like the most expensive components just thrown together.
