The new compact monitor from Graham Audio, the LS3 is a similar size to the classic LS3/5 and LS3/5A, but uses modern drive units in a sleek cabinet finished in high gloss paint that compliments any interior style.
The bass driver is a newly developed unit that uses a polypropylene diaphragm and a die-cast aluminium chassis. It has an extremely smooth frequency response, meaning that the crossover does not need to be as complex as the BBC models, thus assuring high levels of transparency. Coupled with the bespoke SEAS tweeter, which is custom-built for Graham Audio, the results are truely monitor class.
In the usual Graham Audio way, the grille is held in place using magnets that are hidden, so the front of the speaker looks clean and uncluttered, whether you choose to use the grilles or not.
On the rear panel are a pair of high quality multiway binding posts that will accept the majority of loudspeaker connections.
Graham Audio is proud to present the LS3 under the iconic Swisstone brand - once the trading vehicle of one of the biggest BBC licencees.
