Rogers is excited to introduce a Special Edition version of the BBC-licensed LS3/5A, the LS3/5A Classic SE.
Improving on a reference fifty-year-old design while remaining true to the original was no easy undertaking
But, once we heard the significant gains in performance, we could not ignore them.
Extending our research from the Panzaholz LS3/5A loudspeaker stand, the next logical step was to question how the material performed as a loudspeaker baffle? Unsurprisingly, it performed sonically much in the same way as the loudspeaker stand, delivering a more open soundstage and cleaner spectral decay.
Giving greater insight already, we then looked at the crossover, which retains the same component values but now with upgraded resistors used for R1 and R2.
Handmade in England, this is the best Rogers LS3/5A we have ever built and arguably the finest LS3/5A available today.
Partnered with the matching Panzaholz stand, the LS3/5A SE speakers transcends logical expectation of what is possible with a two-way transducer speaker system, ultimately sounding more like that of a high-quality point source panel speaker.
Rogers SE versions are instantly recognisable with their new Gold badge on the front and new gold label on the rear. These finishing touches confirm the elevated performance worthy of an SE title.
Note: Rogers stands sold separately.
