    Default Stirling Broadcast LS3/5a V2

    Heard a pair in 2011. Looking back now I actually did like them. Can easily live with the Stirlings for life.

    The treble was fairly smooth and didn't show off any rude hot spikes in the top. Another speaker I can listen to for long periods.

    Toying with the idea of getting a pair in the future.

    Anyone of this parish using Stirling Broadcast speakers?

    I think there was a pair for sale a while ago, it might have been Josie or Bev selling them.

    No but they could tell you what they thought, and why they sold.

    Tonal wise. How do they compete against the P3ESR?

    I found them thinner and quacky. Didn't have the bass weight either.

    I have the new Falcon LS3/5a - a diy version as it was only available in kit form for the first couple of months of production.

    I do not consider it a “room” speaker but is sublime placed as designed as a near field monitor. In my study its the best computer monitor you will find. It cant compete with more modern full range speakers and I find its strength is in the midrange and particularly for voice - think jazz singers like Diana Krall.

    I have a pair of Spendors of a similar design and they are much more balanced across the frequency range and do make lovely speakers for a small room. I think the model no is SP1 or similar.
