The Chartwell Audio LS3/5 – I Prefer the Sequel

“Graham Audio, makers of the exceptional LS5/9s we reviewed last year and subsequently purchased as reference speakers enlisted the help of designer extraordinaire Derek Huges, along with some help from Seas and Volt to create a masterpiece that observes the original specification. Cutting to the chase, they have succeeded brilliantly.” Jeff Dorgay

Graham Audio LS3/5 Standmount Loudspeaker – 27th May 2016

“The inherently flatter frequency response might imply that, had things been different at the time, the BBC would have continued to use LS3/5s and the LS3/5a might not have happened at all. I think the collectors would have still been very happy, and they will lap this up!” Steve Dickinson, Hi-Fi+

Graham Audio LS5/8 Loudspeaker – October 2015

“This is a loudspeaker that might have forever been hidden away from public view and the last of the line of BBC speakers could have just been a footnote in audio’s history. Graham Audio deserves great credit for bringing these classics to light.” Nicholas Ripley, Hi-Fi+

Graham Audio LS5/9 Monitors Review – 2nd December 2014

“Its resolution of the natural timbre of musical instruments is first rate and rhythmic timing is spot-on. The deep and wide soundstage enables sounds to be placed precisely within a mix and pinpoints subtleties lesser monitoring systems gloss over. A classic design with an impeccable pedigree. 9/10.” John Pickford.

GRAHAM AUDIO LS5-9 SET WS

Graham Audio LS5/9 – 21st October 2014

“This is not a loudspeaker for the masses because it is unflattering of bad recordings, their limitations are almost emphasised. It is made in the traditional way that loudspeakers were once designed, revealing how little has actually changed over the last 30 years and showing what kind of standards the BBC achieved in those days.” René van Es.

Graham Audio LS5/9 Loudspeakers – 10th October 2014

“I was no longer listening to speakers. I was listening to the musicians, or the singers, or the spoken voice, just as the BBC sound engineers, myself included, would have needed to hear. Forget all those fancy boxes or new technologies. It was all right, back in 1983, and it’s still all right now.” Janine Elliot.

A New Classic – Graham Audio BBC LS5/9 Review – September 2014

“Graham Audio has done a fine job with its BBC-licensed LS5/9. It’s overall sound is well-balanced, smooth and even. There’s no stinging treble to make your ears ring nor a thumping bass that overwhelms everything else. Yes, some loudspeakers of a more modern vintage may sound superficially more exciting at first listen – but the LS5/9s are more likely to reward in the long-term as they let the music flow without firing it at you full bore.” HiFi World.
