Stirling Broadcast SB-88 Domestic Monitor Speakers
THE STIRLING BROADCAST SB-88
Derived from one of the most famous speakers of all time!
This is a superb speaker from Stirling Broadcast. Essentially a slightly scaled down version of the revered LS3/6 which is more suited to many domestic environments. This is a brilliant design by Derek Hughes that captures nearly all of what it's bigger brother the LS3/6 can offer - in a more manageable and more affordable package. The SB-88 has superb reviews and for good reason, it is a very popular model in the Stirling Broadcast range.
Phonostage Records is proud to be able to sell the full range of Stirling Broadcast speakers and we will be keeping a set here on demonstration - that is no chore!!
Available in some gorgeous finishes by cabinet makers of the first order and using bass and treble units from the fabled LS3/6, this is a superb step into that fabled BBC world!

88, like other BBC- inspired designs I've heard, exhibits truth of timbre. They sound like musical instruments.” - Sam Tellig - Stereophile Feb 2014.
