Further Information

 

Selling a pair of Falcon LS3/5A Gold Badge speakers (walnut). These are great little speakers which have mostly lived in my office, sadly getting little use. They would have only about 50 hours on them, so not yet fully run in.

 

These are really the peak of the LS3/5A style of speaker with the new 'Gold Badge' crossovers and high-quality manufacturing in England. The manufacturer says they are the only LS3/5A currently in production to faithfully replicate the BBC's original design. They are the only LS3/5A to appear on Stereophile's 'Class A' list and for small rooms I don't think you can get much better, particularly in terms of clarity and midrange quality.

 

They were purchased from Audiofix in Qld on 18 October 2021 and I have the invoice and all original packaging. Price to buy new is $4,999.

 

See reviews for example here: https://www.stereonet.com/au/reviews/falcon-acoustics-ls3-5a-loudspeaker-review,  https://www.stereophile.com/content/falcon-gold-badge-ls35a-loudspeakerhttps://www.hifichoice.com/content/falcon-acoustics-ls35a-gold-badgehttps://hifiandstereo.com.au/reviews/falcon-ls3-5a-gold-badge-is-it-gold/.

 

Pickup preferred but I can arrange shipping at the buyer's cost. Any Paypal fees are also at the buyer's cost.

 

There is a small superficial / surface scratch in the top left-hand corner of one speaker (see photos), but they are otherwise in excellent condition. The scratch looks more prominent in photos than it is in life and is not noticeable at a normal listening distance. I expect it could be reduced by polishing with the right tools / skills.

 

I have been using them with a Sugden A21SE amp which I might also be selling - if anyone is interested in a package with both, let me know.

 

Please otherwise let me know if you have any questions.
