KEF introduces LS50 Wireless ‘Nocturne’ by Marcel Wanders

Globally-renowned design studio Marcel Wanders collaborates with British audio pioneer KEF to produce stunning Special Edition of 2017’s game-changing lifestyle audio system
Singapore | 15th November 2017 – KEF has announced the launch of an exciting Special Edition of its highly-renowned LS50 Wireless Digital Music System – the LS50 Wireless ‘Nocturne’ by Marcel Wanders.
Admired globally for its bold, innovative and holistic design, Marcel Wanders has created ‘Nocturne’, a stunning special edition of LS50 Wireless. The inherently circular nature of KEF’s Uni-Q driver and musical notation symbols subtly blend with unique architectural and rhythmic elements to create a sophisticated design. Selected elements of the design can be discovered to glow in the dark. The LS50 Wireless ‘Nocturne’ by Marcel Wanders lends a vibrant luminous visual quality and magical atmosphere to its surroundings. This sensuous aesthetic quality sets it apart from any other music system; making a lasting and memorable experience.
"There is an orchestrated tempo to this medley. By allowing for individual discovery of the musical elements, the design possesses a distinctive rhythm all on its own.” Marcel Wanders says.
Gabriele Chiave, Creative Director at Marcel Wanders, adds, "We wanted to honour the nocturnal concept. The eloquent depth to the light and dark shades, textures and patterns allude to what you would experience in a dream-like state.”
Based on the original LS50 Hi-Fi speakers – which won countless awards and accolades around the world for their exquisite sound performance – KEF LS50 Wireless is consistent with KEF’s mission to bring exceptional levels of audio quality to contemporary music lovers who require seamless harmony between their devices. By offering a comprehensive set of high quality wireless connectivity options: 2.4GHz/5GHz Dual-band Wi-Fi Network connectivity and Bluetooth 4.0 aptX LS50 Wireless delivers the highest possible quality of wireless music transmission, delivering both high performance and seamless compatibility with the digital devices used by today’s consumers.
KEF’s world-renowned Uni-Q driver technology places the tweeter in the exact acoustic centre of the bass/midrange cone, so that both act as a single point source that disperses the sound more evenly throughout the room than any rival speaker.
The LS50 Wireless system uses a 192kHz/24-bit high-resolution digital signal path throughout, and a dedicated DAC (Digital-to-Analogue Converter) for each channel, ensuring optimal sound quality.
Having significantly increased usability for consumers by dispensing with the need for external amplification – while keeping sound quality at exemplary levels – KEF hasn’t stopped there.
LS50 Wireless is truly an audio product for our times, and one that is changing expectations of what can be achieved in terms of blending wireless streaming, compact and beautiful design, and high-level audio performance. With the LS50 Wireless ‘Nocturne’ by Marcel Wanders, a visionary new aesthetic design – musical, rhythmic and sculptural in nature – has been added to create a magically compelling audio system like no other in the world.
