KEF LS50 Meta Loudspeaker Review

July 31, 2021 § Leave a comment

Beat Of The Brass [A&M AMC146 open-reel tape]. Ordinarily, I listen to Alpert’s superb recordings because the punch of his trumpet is a killer test for transient attack, treble smoothness and other qualities. So explain this one to me… how is the LS50 Meta faster, with crisper transients, smoother in its decay, yet even less likely to show signs of sibilance than the already sweet-sounding LS50?

On to something less cluttered, the luscious-sounding Julie London on Julie Is Her Name [Analogue Productions APP-3006-45], every track sounding ‘in the room’. Gears into reverse for the pounding ‘Glad All Over’ from The Dave Clark Five – All the Hits [BMG BMGCAT408DLP]. No shortage of attack, scale or sheer power. The bottleneck guitar in Keb’ Mo’s Peace… Back By Popular Demand [Pure Pleasure/Epic/Okeh PPAN92687] as fluid and serpentine as it should be. As you might have gathered, I love this speaker.
