Graham Audio Chartwell LS3/5A
Small speakers with an outstanding sound, the LS3/5a is produced by many manufacturers and to our ears these are one of the best. Near field listening to vocals,.. there isn’t much better! Come in and listen. We love to pair them with the Leben valve amps for a beautifully natural sound.
The LS3/5A was produced by BBC Designs Department in response to detail changes in the performance of the drive units that were originally chosen for the LS3/5 as designed by BBC Research and Development. It is the most well-known of all the BBC loudspeakers, and remains the compact loudspeaker of choice for many today.
As the only company to have ever manufactured the LS3/5, and now also the LS3/5A, audiophiles are now in the unique position of being able to hear for themselves the differences that these changes made to the design originally intended by BBC R&D.
