This Amazon deal on KEF’s top wireless speakers is music to our ears

If you’re looking to upgrade your daily drivers, the KEF LS50 Wireless II is one of our best powered speakers, while its passive counterpart makes our list of best bookshelf speakers on the market. And the reason is clear, sitting centrally in the compact speaker’s feature-stuffed cabinet.

Amazon and eBay have impressive deals on refurbished gear this Earth Day

My main space—a long, oddly shaped loft with towering ceilings—is far from ideal…
