Nå er KEF LS50 Wireless endelig støttet av Roon. Dermed forsvinner det eneste store minuset med høyttalerne. KEFs mediokre programvare.

Roon 1.3 (Build 269) Is Live!

Another release of Roon is rolling out to all platforms, with bug fixes, performance improvements, and support for KEF’s LS50W loudspeakers! Today’s release also sets the stage for localized versions of Roon in the near future.

KEF LS50 Wireless Support

We are proud to finally release support for KEF’s fantastic LS50W speakers in Roon!

KEF’s speakers were Digital Audio Review’s Product Of The Year22 last year, and while it took a bit of effort to get Roon streaming directly to the LS50w, we think it was worth the wait.

If you own a pair of LS50W’s note that you will need to be using the newly released Firmware 1.1.411, and we recommend connecting your speakers over Ethernet, as opposed to Wifi. Once your speakers are on and set to “wireless” mode, you can enable them in the Audio tab of Settings. If you are having problems connecting to your LS50W’s, please confirm the KEF app is closed.

Also, note that due to the technical details of KEF streaming these speakers are not Roon Ready, so linking multiple pairs of LS50w is not possible and some RAAT-specific functionality (like convenience switching or advanced Signal Path functionality) is not possible.
