LSX, the compact two-speaker wireless music system from KEF, will support Apple AirPlay 2 following a software update on 3 June 2019. AirPlay 2 brings new capabilities that allow users to effortlessly stream music or podcasts from an iPhone, iPad, Mac, HomePod and Apple TV, perfectly in sync, to LSX systems.
With this update, LSX will receive multi-room audio capabilities so users can play audio in any room from any room, move music from one room to another or play the same song everywhere, using Apple Music. You can even send the sound from an Apple TV to multiple systems, ensuring you don’t miss a thing.
AirPlay 2 perfectly complements LSX’s ease of use with a streamlined setup process through the Apple Home app. All the KEF app functions are still available, including the powerful speaker sound settings.
LSX is the latest step in KEF’s continued development of cutting-edge technologies and innovative high-performance audio products. By working to make the LSX AirPlay 2 compatible, KEF proves that giving its customers the best listening experience possible is integral. Updating to AirPlay 2 is a seamless experience, with the new firmware deployed Over-The-Air through the KEF Control app.
All of this is in addition to the extensive suite of offerings – Apple Music support, Spotify Connect (including Free users), TIDAL, Roon, Bluetooth, optical and analogue, ensuring that almost every music source is covered.
Compact, effortless to operate, and with connectivity options to satisfy both music streaming and TV needs, LSX is a major step forward in the quest to deliver true and proper sound quality for connected consumers.
