KEF updates its legendary LS50 speakers with distortion-killing ‘metamaterials’

There is perhaps no modern speaker more famous among audio enthusiasts than the KEF LS50. Launched back in 2012 to celebrate the venerable audio company’s 50th anniversary, the speaker was quickly met with critical acclaim and enduring popularity. At this point the LS50 is basically a meme, and it’s pretty much impossible to navigate audio forums without it coming up every few pages, along with its streaming variant, the LS50W. Not one to let such popular models go stale, today KEF announced the...

Buchardt A500 review and measurements: This feels like the future of hi-fi speakers

Last year I wrote that Buchardt Audio‘s popular bookshelf speaker, the S400, was near endgame material. It sounded good enough that I felt it would be difficult to find a speaker that was a clear upgrade without opting for something larger or in a different price category altogether. Nearly a year later, I stand by those comments. But if such qualities were true with the S400, they are doubly so for the company’s new flagship bookshelf, the Buchardt A500. The A500 may look nearly identical to th...

Google limits election-related search suggestions to avoid bias claims

Big tech companies have faced no shortage of scrutiny on their influence in politics, especially since 2016 elections. One complaint sometimes levied at Google, for instance, is that search suggestions favor a particular candidate. While the company said that search “does not favor any candidate or cause”  during the 2016 elections, now the company has a better solution altogether: just omit search suggestions on election topics altogether. The news shows up as a single sentence blurb under the ...

Sonus Faber’s new Lumina speakers offer stunning design at a reasonable price

Sonus Faber may be best known for making some ultra high-end speakers that toe the line between technology and luxury furniture, but that doesn’t mean the company can’t cater to a more affordable market as well.
