Welcome to Graham Audio!
Based in Devon, south-west England, we hand build high quality loudspeakers – including a range of BBC-licensed models such as the LS3/5 and LS5/9. We use the very best materials and industry-renowned experts to produce neutral yet highly revealing loudspeakers that work equally well in the recording studio or your listening room at home.
Graham Audio thinks the Swisstone LS3 is a good first rung on the ladder that leads to the LS3/5 or LS3/5a, but that casts it as an impressionist, and that isn’t the whole story. In reality, the Swisstone LS3 is a fine speaker in its own right and is extremely well price positioned. I can’t help but think of it more as a tamed Linn Kan, with the added excitement, fun, and its impersonation of bass energy that loudspeaker turned in. It’s not as uneven as the Kan was, and that unevenness was the Kan’s best, and worst, aspect. But those wanting the entertainment of the Kan with the intrinsic honesty of the LS3/5a might just find the Swisstone LS3 is all the speaker they need.
