LS50W - there is a difference but whether it is worth it - depends on you. They had a bundle with Blue Heaven cords here.

kind of tricky with such all in one product. The powercord is like acting as a distributor to all the devices in there. Would you use different powercords for L & R considering the "master" side has the Amp, DAC, streamer n stuffs while the other side is just the amps?

I wouldn’t. The main power draw would be the amps and that’s common.

miles are meant to be consumed by redeeming J onwards.

it would be a waste of miles.

The LSX rhythm in this video is actually much better, the LS50W sounds way off. But I hear much better recordings for both soeakers on other you tube reviews

I had a hard time to distinguish the difference between the two by playing back the YouTube through my speaker. All sounded the same. Haha my gears and hearing are not good enough.
When i heard the two in the shop, LS50W was bviously more transparent. LSX sound 'thicker' possibly the added body is to make this smaller speaker sound bigger. Or maybe the setting on the speakers were different. Anyway I like both.

computer speakers?

was using my mobile with earphones. the 2 are very distinctive. The LSX midrange is more pronounced... a tad too over powering to me. of cos alot was due to the playback equipment as well, actual sound may be very different

Maybe the eq was set high on the mid range for the LSX. BTW if you haven't notice the video was recorded at our friendly local neighbourhood Kef agent with weather pattern changes in the background too.  ;D

I found the not used samsung note9 earphone and listened again.This time just like what kzone had described, i heard the difference.

I think lsx is facing some difficulty to be popular in local market. Hifi enthusiasm will appreciate the quality of LSX but somehow i think most will find LS50W a more attractive choice other than those who are looking for a compact speakers. Overall consumer will find it rather expensive compare to a wide range of lifestyle audio products.
