Rogers speakers.

Recommended Posts

I had LS2’s back in the very early 90’s, ran them with a Leak Stereo 20.  Was very sweet, but moved onto Tannoy Monitors. 
 

a friend has offered me his Rogers LS6A’s at a knock down price. 
 

Thoughts? Should I stick with Tannoys, or have some retro speaker fun. What’s a fair price?

Try ebay sold listings for a taster: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_odkw=Rogers+"LS6A"&_sop=3&_fosrp=1&_sadis=15&_dmd=1&LH_Complete=1&LH_Sold=1&_osacat=0&_stpos=OX30HF&_ipg=200&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313&_nkw=Rogers+"LS6"&_sacat=0

Looks like most sold for around £50-60.

You can perhaps go as high as £150-200 if pristine.

Rogers made some great speakers and did a lot of development alongside the BBC and I don’t think they ever made a bad pair ... if you get them at the right price give them a go ,, they won’t look out of place with your wall unit if you get some nice teak ones as the colour will have aged nicely by now ..

I have owned the LS6 (predecessor of the LS6A) and its got that typical BBC style midrange allied to a slightly tubby bass. The treble of the two will be different as the A moved to a metal dome tweeter that is generally not quite so well regarded.  But if your system has a smooth top end it should be fine.

Its a bit on the slow side so not a speaker for rockers or nightclubbers, but its certainly worth a shot if you music taste veers towards the more sophisticated.

I had LS4a for a brief period.

Good in many ways but I couldn't get past a quacky colouration and sold them on after a few months.

I put the colouration down to the plastic driver.

I didn't have sufficient pluck, otherwise I'd have put it in my pillow.
