Built under license from the BBC, the Stirling Broadcast LS3/6 Reference Loudspeaker is a 3-way design by
Derek Hughes. Using modern components he has designed the Stirling Broadcast LS3/6 so it remains faithful to the
original BBC specification and much loved sound, while offering greater power-handling than the original, an even
smoother frequency response, much lower colouration and better dispersion.
Derek Hughes has done this by taking advantage of the greater consistency and linearity of our custom-designed,
modern drive units, integrating them by using both computer aided design and listening tests with a very high quality
crossover. A super-tweeter further improves the already excellent high frequency response of the original LS3/6 design.
The Stirling Broadcast LS3/6 cabinets feature screw-on, removable front and rear panels and so are faithful to
the “lossy” thin wall cabinet design philosophy developed by BBC Research Department at Kingswood Warren. The
high quality cabinets use 9mm birch plywood with double thickness damping pads and are finished in beautiful
pair-matched wood veneer with a matt lacquer finish.
The LS3/6 was listed as a Stereophile Class B speaker for 2014: “the LS3/6 produced a natural, compelling sound, with
a good sense of space and an especially warm, rich, textured midrange - Heartily recommended.”
Robert E Green in The Absolute Sound said “To say that I like and admire the LS3/6 is to understate the case. This
speaker seems to me a true realization of a dream that many audiophiles have held for a long time: a modern (and
available) speaker with the unique virtues of the Spendor BC-1/ BBC LS3/6.”
The Stirling Broadcast LS3/6 comes with our standard 5 year warranty on drive units and crossovers
