LS3/5A: Small Size, Monumental Performance

Introducing the LS3/5A, originally engineered for compact spaces like mobile TV control rooms but now reimagined for your living area. Designed to deliver an impressively linear frequency response down to 100Hz, this speaker promises to make every note sound as true to life as possible.

Versatility Meets Clarity

Encased in a closed-back cabinet, the LS3/5A delivers rapid and crisp audio playback. Initially conceived for studio use, this speaker excels in midrange fidelity, providing an astonishingly detailed and realistic soundstage. Vocals and instruments come alive, making it ideal for near/mid-field listening between 2 to 4 meters.

Beyond the Studio

While remaining a staple in music studios, particularly for classical recordings, the LS3/5A has also found its niche among audiophiles. Don’t let its compact size deceive you; it packs a surprising punch in the low-end frequencies. The closed-back design contributes to a bass that’s not only rich but also sharply defined.

A Legacy of Excellence

Musical Fidelity’s A1 Class A amplifier has always been the go-to pairing for the LS3/5A, offering a sublime balance of clarity, detail, and warmth. This partnership has delighted audiophiles for decades, showcasing an awe-inspiring soundstage.

What the Critics Say

“These speakers deliver an impressively expansive sound. They have the ability to disappear into the room, a phenomenon not just spoken of in clichés but experienced in reality.”


“The creamy colorful music reproduction is of outstanding quality, extremely delicate and fine, of rarely heard detail and expressiveness. The stage is very well illuminated and layered in depth.”
