KEF LS50 Wireless joins the Hall of Fame

The team at Computer Dynamics is proud to announce that the KEF LS50 Wireless speaker (above) has just been inducted into the What Hi-Fi? Hall of Fame, in which the UK magazine identifies its favourite products of the past 40 years and counting. The LS50 Wireless was praised for its impressive clarity and insight, taut bass, strong dynamics, excellent build and neatly packaged audio solution.


Sony Muteki MHC-V90DW audio system

A real party monster, this new system is referred to as the “Tower of Power”. With subtlety very much not in mind, the 170cm tall Muteki is an all-in-one party machine with 10 powerful speakers, LED Party Lighting and DJ and Karaoke effects with microphone and guitar inputs with many features able to be controlled by gesture so revellers can turn up the volume without leaving the dancefloor. This big self-contained unit features a handle and castors so you can roll the party around relatively easily.


Rotel amplifiers, CD player

Rotel has launched three new high-performance two-channel stereo products to the New Zealand market. The RA-1572 Integrated Amplifier (left) has many of the features of the popular RA-1570 amplifier, adding an improved DSD capable 32-bit AKM DAC, integrated Bluetooth, IP control and better amplification architecture.

The RC-1572 Pre-amplifier updates the RC-1570 model with many of the same features added to the integrated amplifier in the pre amp format.

For audiophiles with big existing CD collections the RCD-1572 CD Player is an ideal addition, surpassing many on-the-market CD players that use noisy multi-format optical mechs. Features a purpose-built true CD mechanism, 24-bit Wolfson DAC, Tray loading, XLR and RCA out and RS-232 control.


VIFA Oslo wireless speaker

While the new Oslo wireless speaker boasts impressive sound, the unique feature of this model is its tactile wool cover and its cosy aesthetic. The frame is made from one-piece die cast aluminium with a polycarbonate enclosure. Connectivity is available with Bluetooth 4.0, a 3.5mm mini-jack and NFC and the unit is powered by a rechargeable lithium battery. A really quite lovely range of colours are available including Anthracite Grey, Pebble Grey, Sand Yellow, Ocean Blue, Ice Blue and Pine Green.
