About the Graham Audio new LS5/9f
Originally developed at a cost multi-million budget in today’s numbers, the legendary BBC monitors were produced through the most intensive R&D program in loudspeaker history. The latest generation Graham Chartwell LS3/5, LS5/9 and LS5/8 are carefully crafted by designer Derek Hughes, using modern speaker technology. Mr. Hughes developed the new LS5/9f for Graham Audio from the experience gained whilst recreating the BBC LS5/9 to meet a popular demand for a precision monitor loudspeaker like the 5/9 but in a floor standing version.
Built to the same exacting BBC standards the LS5/9f is created using the damped thin wall principle with rubberised acoustic barrier and rockwool damping. The crossover is 2nd order on the bass and 3rd order on the treble, same as the standard LS5/9.
The stereo picture and dynamic range are superb and a review in “Sound on Sound” commented “the sound hangs in the space between the speakers like an invisible band or orchestra”. The midrange performance is almost identical to the award winning LS5/9. While the bass enjoys 5 Hz of lower extension, the greater bass amplitude provides a deeper foundation underneath the music.
Finishes come in high quality real wood veneers. Retail (USD7,995 – USD9,634 | CAD9,354 – CAD11,272 depending on finish)
