Graham Audio LS8/1 Derek Hughes Signature Edition

Graham Audio LS8/1 Derek Hughes Signature Edition

The present design is based on the BBC version of the LS3/6.

The LS8/1 has its roots as a design in research by the BBC into alternatives to paper cone bass drivers in the late 1960’s, and particularly the work done on the LS5/5 loudspeakers which Graham Audio also produce.

The design keeps the fundamentals of the original LS3/6 design intact uses modern techniques to improve on sensitivity and power handling particularly in the bass region, which was the original speaker’s main weak area.

The LS8/1 is a modern classic of the BBC tradition and heritage.
