Great loudspeakers disappear, leaving just the music. The award winning LS50 Meta from KEF is such a loudspeaker. The incredibly immersive sound means you lose yourself in your favourite music. Savouring every nuance as layer upon layer of instrumentation is delivered with exceptional acoustic accuracy anywhere in the room.
Designed around the Uni-Q 12th Generation with Metamaterial Absorption Technology (MAT) driver array, this solid, compact loudspeaker is capable of delivering detailed sound anywhere in the room. MAT is a truly revolutionary tool in the KEF acoustic armoury and is a highly complex maze-like structure that absorbs 99% of the unwanted sound from the rear of the driver, eliminating the resulting distortion and providing purer, more natural sound.
The LS50 Meta’s low-diffraction, curved baffle is precision modelled from an injection-moulded Dough Moulding Compound (DMC), while inside the cabinet, cross-bracing and Constrained Layer Damping (CLD) combine to deaden internal vibrations around the Uni-Q driver array. Its smooth curved surfaces help radiate sound out across the baffle without any interference from hard edges, which cause diffraction. The result is cleaner, more precise sound and using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), the port flare and profile of LS50 Meta’s patented off-set port is calculated to delay the onset of turbulence and the flexible port walls prevent resonances from colouring the midrange.
It may look sensational, but as a high-performance loudspeaker, every aspect of the LS50 Meta design is a case of form following function. From the precision modelled curved baffle to the solid, reinforced cabinet, every inch has been designed to perform.
