The extraordinary vitality of the British brand Musical Fidelity since its integration into the Austrian Pro-Ject Audio Systems has just been reflected in two new products that will delight lovers of the best and most timeless High Fidelity: a careful reissue of the legendary monitors LS3/5A and LS5/9whose basic specifications were established by the research and development department of the respected BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation). Originally designed for listening sessions in places where the space is limitedsuch as mobile control rooms for television, the LS3/5A started from strict specifications aimed at achieving a perfectly linear frequency response curve up to 100 Hz with a excellent sound quality.
Thanks to the use of a closed area and a 2-way/2-speaker configuration extremely refined in terms of transducers and crossover filter, the LS3/5A immediately convinces by the cleanliness and speed of its sound restitution, especially highlighting the detail and realism of the middle zone. Another relevant aspect of this refined ultra-compact monitor is the credibility of the sound scene and the sharpness in the restitution of voices and instruments it provides, which makes it an ideal option also for demanding music lovers and audiophiles with small living rooms and audio equipment “powered” by highly musical attack electronics. For its part, the LS5/9 It’s an acoustic box 2-way/2-speaker bass-reflex and medium dimensions designed to reproduce sound at high sound pressure levels with all types of musical genres, from classical music to pop.
Since this model was originally designed for use in recording studiosits creators imposed from the first moment minimize coloration so that the music itself remained unchanged. In this sense, the use of a bass-reflex acoustic configuration allows the LS5/9 to achieve very high volume levelswhile providing a restitution exceptionally honest that puts in the hands of the music enthusiast exactly what the recording engineer was looking for. Likewise, this monitor offers the user the possibility of adjust the volume of the treble using stepped resistances to adapt the sound to your listening preferences. Finally, let us point out that both the LS3/5A and the LS5/9 are entirely built in the European Union.
