Forget soundbars, KEF’s cheaper LSX II LT stereo speakers come with HDMI ARC and look incredible

KEF makes serious speakers for serious sound. When we reviewed the KEF LSX bookshelf speakers back in 2020, we loved their interesting looks as well as their “fantastic audio quality” and “powerful bass”. We also liked the LSX II’s extensive connectivity options, and now there’s another version of the model. Unusually for high-end audio, better doesn’t mean more expensive. In fact, they’re a lot more affordable.

The new KEF LSX II LT bookshelf speakers come in at a recommended retail price of $999 / £899, down from the $1,400 / £1,199 sticker price of the LSX II. And while the price is lower, corners are not being cut here: the LSX II LT are eminently connectable, very flexible and very powerful too, rivalling the best stereo speakers.

Like their stablemates, the KEF LSX II LT are powered speakers putting out 100 watts per channel and featuring 11th-generation Uni-Q 4.5-inch drivers. There’s room tuning via the speakers’ digital signal processor and support for multi-room too. The speakers connect to one another wirelessly (via KEF’s proprietary low latency connection) or with a new USB-C PD cable that replaces the current generation’s ethernet cable connection. And because that cable has power delivery the speakers only need one power cord, not the two of their predecessors.
