Getting Started with KEF LSX

Getting Started with KEF LSX


LSX is an all-in one music system. Both speakers are fully active, with built-in amplification and Digital to Analogue Converters. The master speaker has a range of connection ports. This is the default right speaker. The slave speaker is the default left speaker. You can swap audio channels to suit your room set-up, using the KEF Control app. To set up LSX, you’ll need a router with live connection, an Android or iOS device. For the best experience, we recommend using a dual-band router set to the 5GHz channel. Next, download the KEF Control app from the app store or the google play store The app will guide you through the setup process. You’ll also use the app to control the system. To start the setup process, launch the KEF Control app. Choose “KEF LSX” from the drop-down bar to begin the step-by-step guide. Connect both speakers to a power supply. The master speaker will automatically connect to the slave speaker. For the best sound experience, keep the speakers between one to three metres apart. The master speaker LED will flash amber and white. Press “Next” on the control app. Now it’s time to connect LSX to your Wi-Fi network. If you’re using an iOS device, tap the Home button, open “Settings”, select “Wi-Fi” and choose LSX. If you’re using Android, just select your Wi-Fi network and enter the password. After rebooting, LSX will be connected to your Wi-Fi network. The LED will now turn solid white. The Control app will automatically check that your LSX is up to date with the latest firmware. If an update is required, first connect the master and slave speakers with the included inter-speaker cable. Then follow the steps within the Control app. Switch input sources. The LED light on the master speaker changes colour depending on the source. Wi-Fi has a white colour. Use Wi-Fi to stream from the KEF Stream app, ROON or DLNA players. The KEF Stream app allows you to steam music from your local library, media server and TIDAL Bluetooth has a blue colour. Use Bluetooth to stream from computers, laptops, smartphones and tablets. Optical connection has a magenta colour. Use this to play from your TV, gaming console or disc player. The 3.5mm auxiliary input has a yellow colour. Use this to play from your CD player, turntable or any analogue devices. LSX also comes with Apple AirPlay 2. This feature will be available in early 2019

  1. Please include USB type C (USB 3.1 Gen 2) on this speaker as well as the kef ls50 because a majority of devices like iphones, ipad, android smartphones have no headphone jack and support audio playback via the usb type c connector only. Plus a lot of current laptops have USB type C. Also include Bluetooth 5.0 support since it supports high quality audio streaming via LDAC.

  2. HALLO YOU HAVE GREAT PRODUCTS BUT I HAVE A QUESTION CAN YOU MAKE LARGER WIRELESS SPEAKER SYSTEM THAN LS50 WIRELESS FOR WITH LARGER CABINET AND LARGER UNIQ FOR BETTER BASS ? THANK YOU !
