Brand: Falcon Acoustics
Product type: Loudspeakers
The Falcon Acoustics LS3/5a, fully licenced by the BBC and hand-assembled in Oxford, England is the only LS3/5a in production that faithfully replicates the original BBC design originally published in October 1976.
The result of nearly 2 years development, the Falcon LS3/5a is the true British-made classic 15 ohm design. It continues the long tradition of the genuine British BBC-licenced loudspeakers stretching back to the 1960’s.
The drive units are the renowned Falcon B110 and the Falcon T27 tweeter, both designed by Malcolm Jones. Malcolm was the original designer of the KEF B110 and T27 drive units that were specified in the original 15 ohm LS3/5a version designed by the BBC. Both Falcon drive units are handmade in the UK to ensure the highest quality, grading and consistency, and are identical to the original designs. As a result, they are unique to Falcon.
The matched 15 ohm FL6/23 filter networks are made exclusively by Falcon in the original transformer-style to BBC Specification and contain inductors specially made in Britain for Falcon to the original specification.
The cabinets are hand made from specially selected graded Baltic Ply and use selected grade Beech fillets. They are British made to BBC Specification and are available in a variety of natural wood veneers with a Tygan cloth front grille.
Falcon Acoustics LS3/5a’s are sold in matched pairs only, and are supplied with an Instruction Manual, Individually Numbered Certificate of Authenticity and come with a 5 year Guarantee.
