Building on the success of the LS6 monitor, the Chartwell LS6/f is a floor-standing loudspeaker system that combines a modern aesthetic with the open, uncoloured sound you’d expect from a Graham Audio system.
The integrated plinth provides a flow-optimised path for the airflow from the port, reducing distortion at high outputs.
The LS6/f uses the same custom drive units as the stand-mount LS6 and has an optimised crossover network using premium quality components to integrate the acoustic output from both drive units and equalise the overall response for optimum performance in free space. A switch on the front panel adds 1 or 2dB to the tweeter level, which might be advantageous in certain acoustic environments.
In common with all Graham Audio loudspeakers, the cabinet uses the classic BBC “thinwall” construction, where the panels are mass-loaded to ensure that resonances are moved away from the critical mid-range region, and a layer of Rockwool is held in place by fabric to provide air damping. Hand-matched veneers are applied and finished to a very high standard. The grille is carefully designed to minimise diffraction effects and is held in place by concealed rare-earth magnets.
The result is monitor-class audio quality in a compact and attractive package, hand-made in the UK.
