KEF LS50 Wireless II Adds Amazon Hi-Res Audio Support

KEF's Applause Award-winning LS50 Wireless II has just got even better-connected thanks to the addition of Amazon hi-res audio support.

The KEF LS50 Wireless II speaker system has added Amazon Music support to its list of skills alongside its Roon Ready certification gained earlier this year. Now, subscribers to Amazon Music can enjoy tracks labelled as 'HD' or 'Ultra HD' through the LS50 Wireless II in all their high-resolution glory.

Our own Matthew Jens said that the LS50 Wireless II boasts “a detailed and nuanced sound signature, superb imaging and lots of power” when he pinned an Applause Award to its compact casement. This performance was undoubtedly mainly due to KEF's clever Metamaterial Absorption Technology (MAT) and 12th generation Uni-Q driver array featured in these superb standmounts. Well, that and “the fine wireless implementation, ease of set-up and useful connectivity options”. The latter includes coaxial (24-bit/192kHz), optical (24-bit/96kHz), 3.5mm aux inputs, and, finally, HDMI eARC so you can hook them up to your television, too!

With Amazon Music, you get access to over 70 million tracks in lossless 'HD' (16-bit/44.1kHz) and hi-res 'Ultra HD' (24-bit/192kHz) quality. This tier was initially as the premium Amazon Music HD with a higher subscription price to along with it. However, perhaps in reaction to Apple Music's free lossless and spatial offerings, Amazon now includes its HD titles with Amazon Music Unlimited, which costs $11.99/month (Individual) or $17.99/month (Family). For a limited time, you can sign up for a 3-month free trial right here.
