Mine are definitely not boxy or colored sounding, but they must have an excellent tube amplifierI do hope the modern ones are less coloured than the originals.
The last time i audioned a pair, they were kind of boxy sounding.
The same thing that makes any other product being held in high regard, well executed advertising. That the engineering behind LS3/5 is sound, is beyond any doubt. There is quite a few people fishing in this pond to achieve the same. At least they are trying to.Looking at the fan following of the Ls3/5a why is it soo famous? ... what makes the sound soo special?
from the wiki "A total of 11 companies were ever granted licences by the BBC to manufacture the model". With 3 making it at any given time according to the wiki.well executed advertising.
Looking at the fan following of the Ls3/5a why is it soo famous? The crossover also doesnt look like conventional 2nd order or 4th order.
What is this all about? It could be some BBC standard ok then so what? what makes the sound soo special?
