Bottom Line

The KEF LS50 is a pricey bookshelf speaker, but it delivers awesomely accurate sound and an awesome soundstage.

The KEF LS50 bookshelf speakers received positive reviews for their appealing finish and compact build, which delivers a massive sound with incredible accuracy. They have a great soundstage due to their great tweeter design, requiring careful speaker placement. The only real downside is that it is very pricey and it may not deliver enough bass to satisfy some. However, you are getting what you paid for, as these have left most users in awe of their inspirational sound quality.
