Default Rogers LS3/5A Monitors $700.00

These monitors fell into the hands of a DIY enthusiast who used them to test out a few tweaks before they came to me. The Woofers have 1/4" holes drilled into the dust caps. "audiophile" speaker terminals were installed. Lastly, horrendous speckle painted was used to cover blemishes to the cabinets. Serial numbers are: (SO-14-64-7A) & (SO-14-64-7B)
How do they sound? Great! I used these for ten years before signing onto the OB band wagon. For small rooms with set amps, these are hard to beat. They
are magic with vocal and acoustic pieces. DCR upon request. I have an extensive e-bay record that can be viewed under Shokujitsu. Buyer pays all shipping costs. No NO NO overseas shipping.

The mods explain why you are selling them so cheap. I'm just now restoring a pair...

These are not collectors items by any means. The guy I bought them from is a savvy audiophile who amassed a fortune in audio equipment back when the stuff was cheap. He got me hooked and these Rogers were my first foray into
"hi-fi" I could afford them due to the condition. Good luck with your restoration.

The Rogers cabinets are built like tanks. Very heavy for their size. Are you building from scratch?
