To the younger hi-fi enthusiast, of whom there are undoubtedly some among our ranks, it might come as a surprise to learn the BBC once designed its own speakers. The same licence fee that’s now used to fund new series of Mrs Brown’s Boys was once invested in what Rogers Hi-Fi‘s Andy Whittle calls Britain’s “world-breaking commitment to audio”.

The task of building the speakers was divided up between a thriving British hi-fi industry – Rogers was among the companies holding licenses, along with Goodmans and Spendor. Having already brought the LS3/5A and LS5/9 back to the market, Rogers has plans to re-release more of the company’s back catalogue in the future.
