Living Sounds Audio (The LSA Group)

New LSA models were introduced at the Axpona show & will start shipping by late October
Underwood Hifi has purchased LSA. We are selling LSA exclusively factory direct. This allows us to dramatically lower the selling prices of these excellent speakers.

The LSA speakers are amazingly good values at the new Direct prices. The original line received superb reviews. The new 2018 line is even better with all custom drivers, upgraded cabinets and better crossovers.

The new 2018 line uses the patented XBL2 drivers. These drivers allow for more linearity and lower distortion at all levels. The new products were designed to compete with high end speakers that sell for 3 times their price thru retail dealers. They offer serious value at our Internet Direct pricing. The original line had Standard, Signature and Statement models. This new line has only Signature and Statement versions. The Signatures are a step up over the original Statement versions and the Statements offer untouched performance & value at our selling prices. Target models were 2-3 times our prices.

The LSA-1 Statement was named one of the 10 best under $3000.00 speakers by The Absolute Sound in 2016. It was an 
Editors Choice at $2800.00 retail in the 2015 The Absolute Sound. The new LSA-10 Statement goes 10Hz lower uses all custom LSA drivers, an 8th order crossover with exceptional parts, a rear mounted auxiliary bass radiator and much upgraded lacquer finish. It is better from bass to treble. The LSA-10 Statement is like listening to a floor standing speaker that just happens to be in a small box.

The Signature version will offer amazing value with the same custom black anodized aluminum 6.5” woofer, a new 1” silk dome tweeter  and a single 5” x 7” passive radiator (mounted on the rear). Bass will also go to 35Hz and set a new standard at our selling price.

The LSA10 Statement and LSA-20 Statements will have a beautiful upgraded lacquer gloss finish. See the wood photo below.


The photo above was taken with my iphone and is the final wood selected to be used. The one on the left if the lacquer for the Statement models. It is so glossy you can see my ceiling fan reflected off of it. The one on the right is the satin finish to be used in the Signature series.
 

XBL MAGNETIC GAP

Mobirise

XBL is a patented technology that is well proven with tens of millions of drivers worldwide.  The dual gap architecture used in our transducers provides extremely high output, very wide bandwidth, and exceptionally low THD. And by using aluminum drivers and formers we get additional cooling that allows for much longer throw giving us more output with lower bass frequency capability and along with lower distortion.


The LSA-10 Signature monitor uses a custom LSA 1” silk dome tweeter with a compact neodymium XBL2 magnet structure and a shallow waveguide to better integrate with the woofer, a single black anodized LSA custom aluminum 6.5” XBL2  woofer, and a single rear mounted 5” x 7” sub bass radiator. The LSA-10 Signature uses a computer designed 4th order Linkwitz Riley acoustic crossover with an 88dB sensitivity (2.83 Vrms @ 1 meter) and 8-ohm rating. The LSA-10 Signature has an in-room response from 35 Hz to 20 kHz +/-3Db. The LSA-10 Signatures are available in a satin finish chocolate brown veneer with magnetically attached grille.

CES Show Report by Chris Martens of The Absolute Sound:

"The LSA Group LSA-1 Monitors [produce] images that are gigantic, beautifully focused, and three-dimensional beyond belief. These affordable stand-mount monitors seemed remarkably free from edge diffraction and struck me as being among the finest imagers I've ever heard at any price.
I was also impressed by the LSA1's natural tonal balance and unforced clarity. Though the LSA-1s filled a quite large room with sound, they never seemed to be working very hard."

LSA1 Monitors

LSA-1 is No longer Available- We have a few pairs of LSA-1 Statements left.

Here are some of their comments:

"...It was impossible to locate an instrument that sounded as if it were being produced by a speaker. What did appear was a huge soundstage that filled the front of the room. Listening to “Tutti!”... the first violin section extended about four feet beyond the left speaker while the second violins and violas did the same on the right.  The other sections were rendered in beautiful layers extending to the wall six feet behind. Most amazing was the sense of height. The brass and percussion were elevated well above the cabinets in perfect scale as they would be on stage. The LSA1s made it seem perfectly plausible that the Minnesota Orchestra or the Czech State Philharmonic were performing a private concert just for me."

"...Just for fun, I pulled out the Sound Dynamics 300ti. This is a much larger speaker that truly is remarkable, though not to the degree hyped by HP. Other than a more extended low end, the LSA1 was superior in every regard. It wasn’t even close. The very fine Vienna Acoustics Haydn (review upcoming) was stronger competition. While the Haydn costs about 30% more, the LSA1's were more convincing and lifelike, especially in the low bass and upper frequencies..."

"...All of the above is great so far, but if a speaker cannot convey a male or female vocal convincingly, the rest counts for nothing. The 1s were more than convincing, they were inspiring....These speakers have the innate ability to bypass your ears and grasp your heart, soul or both. One does not “hear” them, one experiences the music. They pull you in and cause you to forget the office, the bills, the noise and clutter of life and transport you to wherever the artists want to take you..."

  • LSA-1 Statement monitor speakers w/ribbon tweeters & great xover $2,799/pr TAS one of 10 best under $3000 spkrs Factory Direct price $1,599/pr in Rosewood

Reviews have been superb at their $2800.00 a pair price thru dealers.  At $1599 in Rosewood they offer a superb value. Here is what the reviewers have said:

1) "The LSA1 Statement Monitor ... sounded far better than any $2600-a-pair loudspeaker should. This small two-way had exceptional dynamics, surprisingly deep bass extension, great image focus, and a smooth and extended treble courtesy of the ribbon tweeter."

Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound, February 2011

2) "I give my compliments to LSA Audio for creating a very high-performing and creatively designed reference-level monitor for an incredibly reasonable price (was $2800/pr Now Factory Direct at $1599). If you're a music lover with a small acoustic space and want a two-way, stand-mounted speaker that will allow you to relax and enjoy the pleasure of your music collection, you would have to spend triple the amount to get a speaker that would out-perform the LSA1 Statement Monitor speaker. I highly recommend you put it on your audition list."

Terry London, www.HomeTheaterReview.com

3) "One of my favorite discoveries of this year was the LSA Group's LSA1 Statement monitor. This attractive speaker features a folded-ribbon tweeter, a 6.25" mid/bass driver, and premium-grade crossover parts. The LSA1 Statement is one of the two best sub-$3000 monitors I've ever heard. These speakers sound highly detailed, yet are unfailingly smooth and offer very good bass extension for their size. They also produce enormous 3-D soundstage's and easily reveal subtle differences between good / better / best amplifiers."

Chris Martens

4) "I have owned several minimonitors over the years . . . The LSA1 Statement is the finest minimonitor I have heard . . ."
