A little bit different this open day as we are having it on a Thursday as opposed to our normal Saturday open day slot.
So basically between 1pm - 8pm on Thursday 21st we will be showing the full range of speakers from Graham Audio, these BBC licensed speakers comprise of the LS3/5, the LS5/9, the LS5/8 and the brand new and never seen before LS6, we really are privileged to have these as an exclusive, and if that wasn’t enough we will also have the brand new Graham Audio VOTU Speakers that have only been shown once within the UK and which I ma very much looking forward to hearing, so there will be plenty to look forward to.
We will be running these on Bryston electronics with representatives from Synthax, the UK Distributor, as well as the lead designer from Graham Audio and their main speaker builder on hand to help run the day and answer any questions you may have and as ever refreshments will be available.

About Graham Audio
Graham Audio is a family-owned British company based in Newton Abbot, a small market town in Devon, south-west England. We are passionate about high-quality audio and believe that the classic BBC loudspeaker designs offer levels of neutrality, transparency and realism that are hard to find elsewhere today. Using modern components and production techniques we have been able to push the performance while remaining true to the original designs.
They might be small, but they are proud to work with some of the best talent in the industry, including Derek Hughes and Volt Loudspeakers. Their loudspeaker systems are available throughout the world from carefully selected outlets who have full demonstration facilites, and will support you through the selection and setting up process.
All loudspeakers are hand-assembled on-site. One person is responsible for the whole process, including testing and auditioning. A second person double-checks the completed product, repeating the testing as a matter of course and saving the results for future reference. As part of the test procedure, all completed loudspeakers are compared to our master reference samples to ensure complete consistency.
The company was founded by Paul Graham, who has spent more than 20 years working in all areas of professional audio, including the recording and broadcast industries, and in live sound and performance. Of all the different approaches, Paul has always favoured the “BBC sound” for both professional and personal applications, but feared that many of the classic designs would be lost forever as one by one the surviving examples gradually failed after many decades of operation. A couple of chance meetings and some long conversations later, it was decided that the only way to preserve this legacy was to seek BBC approval to build them himself. Happily, the first product to be released - the BBC LS5/9 - has been warmly received by reviewers and owners alike, and the newly released BBC LS5/8 and upcoming LS3/5 look set to bring the unique BBC sound to an even wider audience.
Hope to see you on July 21st, please feel free to come anytime between 1pm - 8pm and bring along any music you would like to hear on these great speakers, please see below for the current range -
