I'm amazed no one has commented about the fact they are still £899. Always someone who comes in to say there £100 logitech pc speakers are just as good.

I think my 2 bookshelves and decent stereo amplifier came to about the same amount so getting all of that with all the extra connectivity features and the quality KEF sound and less cables isn't too bad if your on the audiophile spectrum

What Hifi agree - they have recently won 2019 awards.

By the way there are some exdemo ones available for £799 too.
Voted hot, as these speakers are nearly always RRP in UK retailers, around the £1000 mark. So 10% off is a good deal.

You can probably get Richer Sounds to price match if anyone prefers them. I think they will even beat the price by £10 too
Works for the KEF LS50 Wireless too HERE
Nice but not for me
Been waiting for these too, £800 was my ideal biting point but they never seen to drop in price, very tempted! Free echo dot too if buy via amazon
Does anyone know of any good quality cheaper alternatives to pair with my oled TV (mainly used for TV and films, but will be playing music and audiobooks too) or are these speakers worth the extra?

Update: bought them

If I didn't treat myself to my current setup last Christmas I would have been very tempted by these. Enjoy.

Hmm, Peter Tyson have price matched with a 5 year guarantee, I called to cancel but they offered me the official stands for 150 so stuck with them, let me know how you get on as if that's the case I may cancel and order with Peter Tyson. Tbf the guy was really helpful on the phone

Edit: just called him back, he said they are supposed to come with both types of plug?

KEF LSX s1. £300 rrp, next cheapest I've seen is 260 (going very cold on hukd atm but no surprises there haha)

I have a pair of wired LS50s and they are excellent. LSX have the advantage of being half the price, and support airplay 2 if that’s important to you.

The chap I spoke to at Sevenoaks was helpful and says he will get a set of power cables out to me for tomorrow. In the meantime I can sit and look at them on my desk. He did offer me

What headphones were you offered though?
I find it odd that they are sending the UK power cables separately though, how would you know if they are genuine KEF cables? They could just be random third party ones they bought cheaply elsewhere.

The replacements arrived; the moulding has the same manufacturer on it, they are the same quality plastic, they were taped together using the same type of tape as the European ones, there is no doubt in my mind that they are Kef originals. These are not ordinary figure of 8 or kettle leads, they have three pins more like some laptop cables I’ve seen.

Thank you for your concern though. It is very much appreciated.

You're welcome and I'm glad they seem to be genuine KEF cables

I've got them either side of my TV with the s1 stands, but didn't realise I need to buy an optical cable so just using Bluetooth atm, going to try WiFi then got a cable coming same day delivery so TV tonight, can't wait. I'm no audiophile, just wondering with the stands it says I can fill them with sand or something, they seem heavy anyway and the bass is great, so do I need to do this if you know at all?

The theory is that the more vibration you can reduce, the better the sound overall. I’ll be honest and say that you probably won’t hear a difference, but it might be a good thing to do on a rainy day?

Ah okay thank you, yeah maybe one day then, but I'm blow away with how good they are, hooked them together with the cable for a firmware update and tried WiFi and sounds fantastic, I'm assuming the cable connecting them only has a marginal difference too? Increases the bandwidth or bitrate or something? Looks neater without so may just use them wireless to each other but via WiFi instead of Bluetooth. Can't stop smiling at the sound haha

The cable is only required in two circumstances:
1. You get regular dropouts of the connection between the speakers when they are connected together wirelessly.

2. You are steaming High Definition audio at 96kHz/24bit resolution. If you are not sure if you need 96kHz, then you definitely won’t need to worry about the cable - definitely for audiophiles only

If you use the cable, switch them to Cable Mode in the settings in the app
Oh right, thank you very much! Yeah that all went over my head so I think no cable for the foreseeable future haha
I’m keeping an eye on this for a discount on stands hopefully: uk.kef.com/pag…yJ9

You are right, the thread is standard and is the same as standard tripods, but this isn’t quite the look I’m after!

It's better than nothing I guess
Also in case this helps any of you, these Audioengine DS2 stands should be great for the KEF LSX. If you read the reviews and look at the customer images, you can see other people are using KEF speakers and other makes too
