We think it sets a new standard in a high performance affordable monitor. Below is a first shot of the finished speakers. Our competitors offer 6-8 pound speakers in cheap vinyl boxes. This is a 23 pound, rear ported, beautiful real wood enclosure with leather top and fronts. It features superb drivers and custom crossovers.
These speakers retail at $599.00 Internet Direct + freight for a pair.
Even we are shocked at the 38Hz in room bass response
In the new Stereotimes review Terry London says:
"LSA (Living Sound Audio) Signature 50 loudspeakers has turned out to be one of the most "mind-twisting" experiences I have had in a very long time."
"The Signature 50 speakers have outperformed at least three other two-way stand mount speakers ranging in price from $1,700 to $3,500 per pair that I currently have in-house for review."

See the great new youtube review by the Audiophiliac here:
“wow, just wow.”
What does that really mean anyway? It leads to so many more questions. In all seriousness,
the new Signature 50 speakers from LSA (available only online from Underwood Hifi) offer
tremendous value, performance, and build quality for $599/pair.
The photo above is with the optional stands. There are 4 sand fillable metal posts with wood bottom and top plate. They are 24" high and come with spikes.
The stands are $249.00 or $199.00 delivered for the pair when bought with our speakers.
The stands are in stock and now shipping
Here is an initial user feedback:
1) "I know you’re a busy man, so will keep this review of your LSA 50 brief:
2) Subject: LSA Signature 50 speakers
The LSA Signature 50 speaker is a compact stand mount 2-way bass reflex speaker with a 6.5 inch treated paper cone woofer and a low distortion high-resolution 28mm silk dome tweeter integrated with a unique quasi-transient perfect passive crossover that provides a realistic sense of rhythm and dynamics for percussion and drums.
In the first review Tone Audio said:
"Because the Signatures accomplish so much, it’s truly tough to find fault – remember this is a $600 pair of speakers. In 40 years, only the Magnepan SMG and Vandersteen 1 (back when they were only about $900 a pair) have offered this much sheer musical enjoyment for such a modest investment. Putting the LSA 50 Signatures in the same sentence with these two classic speakers is the highest compliment I can give them."

The crossover components used feature high quality film capacitors as well as utilizing pure copper, large-gauge inductors and premium audio grade wire wound resistors (not white “cement” type resistors).
The unique quasi-transient perfect crossover means that both the woofer and tweeter are in the same absolute phase (both push out at the same time on a sharp pulse) and time-aligned, and thus render acoustic peaks and crescendos with a minimum of time-smear for crisp and clear cymbals, guitar plucks, piano key strikes, drum rimshots, and standup bass plucks with precision and lifelike realism.
The time-alignment also provides a wide soundstage and accurate placement of the stereo image. The quasi-anechoic bass extension is 38Hz at -3dB. In-room bass extension will likely be deeper with room modes.
The top end response exceeds 22kHz with a crossover situated at 3.8kHz to provide the required time alignment and phase integration for a 60 degree wide polar response that varies by less than 2dB. Amazing results for a loudspeaker in this price class – or far above.
The natural and lifelike voicing has been extensively optimized over countless hours of critical listening sessions provides an enjoyable and fatigue free experience. Our Voicing Team has decades of experience and they have applied sound practices and results in this loudspeaker.
The LSA Signature 50 is a speaker that you will want to re-listen to your entire music collection again because it is that good and just plain fun to listen to.

The LSA-10 Signature are sold out. The new LSA Signature 80 below at $1499.00 a pair replace them and offer upgraded performance at a far lower cost.
The Signature 80 uses a 7" metal cone woofer and a new 3" planar ribbon tweeter with custom wave guide. Our custom crossover is superb.
In the Audio Pursuit review they sum with:
"I've owned some terrific stand-mounted speakers over my review career: Harbeth Compact 7es, Penaudio Cenya's, and Totem Signature Ones. I can now add the Signature 80's to that list. If I gave awards for loudspeakers, they would win, hands down. These speakers from LSA are just so damn good that I'm prying open my wallet and buying the review pair, something that I haven't done in six years."

The first mini review is out in Tone Audio. They say:
"It just took the first bass riff in The Art of Noise’s “Moments in Love” to convince me that the new LSA 80s deliver some major bass. These dig deep. In a moderate sized room, you won’t need a subwoofer with these – that’s a plus. Especially for entry level audiophiles on a tight budget."
"But bass isn’t everything. These speakers have done an incredible job of blending the tweeter and midrange for a seamless audio experience. They produce a big, big sound that is tough to beat for small monitors, especially at their introductory price o $1,299/pair. Much as we enjoyed the LSA 50s, like Spinal Tap says, “well, these are one better…”
"The cabinets are well finished, and the execution is equally great. Not too fancy, but really good for what they are. Easy to drive, we’ve had excellent result with everything from our 10 Watt per channel LAB 12 Mighty to the Pass XA 200.8 monoblocks. By the way – these lovely little speakers are available direct from Underwood HiFi, and their VT-70 tube integrated at $1,295 makes a killer combination."
"So, what’s not to love?"

In the followup full review from July 2022 they say:
"The $1,000 – $2,500 speaker market is probably one of the most highly competitive segments going. The LSA Signature 80 belongs in the top tier of this group. Rather than concentrating on blowing you away with one optimized aspect of the frequency range, the LSA team brings you a well-balanced speaker, that you can actually live with."
"It’s hard for companies like KEF, Elac and such to put as much forward in this area of high-end audio, because everyone needs to get their piece of the pie. For those of you looking for the maximum value, it’s tough to beat a company like LSA, because there is no importer, distributor and dealer in the chain. Comparing the Signature 80 to the KEF LS-50 and the ELAC Uni-Fi, the Signature 80s not only reveal more music, they are much easier to drive."
"Highly recommended."Full review here: https://www.tonepublications.com/audiophile-apartment/review-the-lsa-signature-80-speakers/
The Living Sounds Audio (LSA) Signature 80 speaker is a ported 2-way reference monitor designed to provide an accurate and natural sounding presentation with superb resolution and low distortion. We utilize a state of the art planar tweeter in a custom CNC’d aluminum waveguide. We couple the tweeter to a low distortion light and fast 7" aluminum cone woofer. These drivers are all housed in a beautiful rosewood veneer cabinet with deep front bevels to reduce diffraction effects. The wave guide and crossover provide a wide angle sweet spot of over 60 degrees with essentially a uniform response and only down -5dB over 90 deg. The bespoke crossover is voiced to provide a smooth and natural transition at 3.5kHz and utilizes a custom PCB with high quality film caps and pure copper wire inductors for resolving high resolution details and to maximize bass impact. The attention to detail and high quality components are further evidenced by a custom CNC’d binding post plate fitted with premium Viborg 5-way gold plated copper binding posts.
As compared to the Signature 50, the Signature 80 is more dynamic, transparent and offers better overall resolution. We compared this speaker to some fine $4000-$5000.00 competitors and are happy with the results. It is another giant killer that we sell Internet Direct.
Terry London of Stereo times emailed with:
"The LSA Signature 80s have reference level transparency that allows all the micro-details/nuances of the music to easily be heard like a studio mastering monitor. However, the Signature 80 never sounds analytical or mechanical. Its overall liquidity and effortless presentation is relaxing, engaging, and allows you to get "intimate" with the music you love. Add on a deep extended accurate base foundation, a beautiful midband, and a detailed sweet high-end to complete this sonic picture! The cabinet is done in a rosewood veneer that is quite the eye candy. All this for $1,299 makes the Signature 80s a remarkable bargain."
