Legendary Rogers LS5/9 Speakers in extremely good condition with a teak wood finish.
These speakers sound absolutely amazing and are also quite beautifully finished in matching grained teak (having spent most of their life inside a cabinet away from sunlight). Aesthetically perfect for a mid century modern environment (as well as many others), and a fantastic compliment to a high end vintage setup. (The black versions of this same speaker are far more common and less desirable).
Other than the undersides which have some marks where the bumpers were attached, it's difficult to find many blemishes. See the photos for complete condition.
They are rather heavy (see specification below, 70 lbs for the pair), thus shipping is expensive.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about them.
