The company Audio Offensive is located in Falkensee near Berlin, which acts as an importer and distributor for exciting brands such as Grandinote, Kron Audio, Aqua or Graham Audio is active. There is now something very special from the latter brand: a strictly limited loudspeaker.
Graham Audio LS 8/1 – a box in the classic BBC tradition
A classic BBC monitor both visually and conceptually – this is how the Graham Audio LS 8/1 in the Derek Hughes Signature Edition presents itself. It is a three-way bass reflex loudspeaker based on the “thin wall construction” principle, as is also known from Harbeth, for example.
The loudspeaker, which weighs 17 kg and measures 63.5 x 30 x 30 cm (HxWxD), is based on the BBC version of the LS3 / 6, but is equipped with modern drivers. A 20 cm cone loudspeaker is responsible for the low-mid range, while two domes – one switched on from 3.5 kHz, another from 14 kHz – play the other frequency ranges. Graham Audio gives the frequency response over everything with 45 Hz – 20 kHz, the sensitivity with 87 dB / 2.83V / m.
Interested parties should strike quickly, because only 100 pairs of this model are made, Audio Offensive has secured a few copies, including the matching speaker stands 7,000 euros should cost.
