Graham Audio LS5/9f HiFi Loudspeakers
The BBC LS5/9f
A development of the famous BBC LS5/9, the LS5/9f is the perfect choice for those who prefer floor standing loudspeakers over the traditional stand-mount form factor.
However, the changes aren't simply cosmetic. Yes, this model uses the same handmade bass/midrange driver from Volt along with the 34mm Audax tweeter as the regular LS5/9, both selected to the same tight tolerances. But the larger cabinet allows for increased bass extension and greater dynamic range.
We are proud to be authorised Graham Audio/Chartwell dealers and we always keep a range of their speakers on demo! We just love speakers built in this tradition. We have a history of collecting them, buying them, selling them and getting all sentimental about them!! In fact many of our best hours have been spent in front of a pair of LS3/5a or Spendor BC1 loudspeakers and we certainly do know how they sound and what incredible potential they have.
Based on positive feedback from customers and the dealer and distribution network, Graham Audio have replaced the soldered connections for tweeter level calibration with the discrete switch first seen in the LS6, which allows for subtle adjustment of the high frequency level. This is useful to help overcome difficulties presented by some acoustic environments, especially those with a lot of absorbent furnishings and finishes.
The cabinet follows established BBC "thinwall" construction practice, and includes the integrated plinth with flow-optimised port first seen in the LS6f. As usual, the grille is held in place using hidden magnets. A range of hand selected real wood veneers is available.
