Summary: Replaced Magnepan MG 10. I auditioned these as well as Kef Q300 front ported bookshelf speakers. Plenty of great reviews already, but I wanted to provide some feedback regarding bass management and speaker placement.
Summary: *Disclaimer - I purchased these from a local hi-fi boutique, where I was able to demo before buying. I didn't want to risk having $1500 speakers shipped (e.g. tossed around, and thrown over my fence). That being said, the box they come in is very secure and well packed.

Summary: I did a Radio Interview with Johan Coorg the Brand Ambassador of KEF and in the interview that you can listen to on www.stephandjengetreal.podbean.com He stated that the KEF LS Mini Monitor was go to for sound in his office at the KEF Headquarters!
Summary: I have one pair for a full year. Still exceed my vocabulary to explain their goodness. With a good 50 wpc amplifier such as my Emotiva amp, they sing beyond expectations. During 55 years in the audio hobby these are the most realistic and thrilling speakers I have owned, using them in a...

Summary: I gave this one star because I do not like the GOLD SPEAKER CONE IN THE CENTER. Why? The gold stands out too much while listening to music....diverts my attention from the SOUND to the GOLD CONE.
Summary: Just got my ls 50's. Had to post a short comment. I have had a lot of speakers over the years...Maggies, Alon's, Martin Logans, Spendors...all great speakers. Also used Genelecs in my studio. These ls50s are excellent monitors. And at the price, just remarkable. I have paid a lot more for worse.
Summary: Just received a pair of LS50s to replace a 15 year old pair of Paradigm Studio 20s that have served me very well. This is for a music-only system in my home-office. I have no complaints about the Paradigms, they sound great. But I got the itch to try something new. Read a bunch of reviews..
Summary: The Kefls50's are absolutely stunning for their size and easily best speakers I own that cost 3-4 times as much . Vocals are where they shine,with clarity Ive never heard in a 1500 pair of speakers. Run don't walk to buy a pair of these .There is not a better speaker for the money anywhere.
Summary: I bought these about a month ago and they've been great so far. They are the first hi-end speakers I have ever purchased. At first I was not satisfied and felt I spent way too much. I still feel that way but I do like them. My friend who is a big audiophile recommended them to me.
