Stirling LS3/5a V2 BBC Licenced Loudpeakers

This is a rare opportunity. This is a seldom seen early set of LS3/5a V2s. This pair probably dates to 2008 or 2008 and is the same as the original review sets - with black fronts and Scanspeak tweeters. Engineered by Derek Hughes to surpass the performance and capability of the originals and yet still meet BBC Licence specifications. The early sets of this type went out to review and were blessed by the likes of Paul Whatton and received superb reviews in The Absolute Sound and others.

This pair are in overall excellent condition with unmarked fronts and immaculate drivers and grilles. There are some minor abrasions or surface level marks to the cabinets but they are not visible in normal use, these are shown in the photos. The overall look of these is very good indeed.

Overall this is a superb looking and superb sounding set. Nice to find this particular version which is not like the 'usual' V2, and great to have a pair that are the very same that the world's great LS3/5a nobility rated so highly!

We have had this pair here at Phonostage Audio for quite some time... they have been our 'Auditioning' set for the grading of collectable records and have also been used for some nearfield monitoring. Having spent some hours with these speakers I can tell you that they sound excellent.

These don't have the original boxes but will be very well packed and will arrive safely! Postage is free in the UK.

Happy listening everybody.
