Has anyone have any experience with this China made LS 3/5A clone. I have been offered a mint condition used pair for 1000euros. Apparently a search on the web reveal some articles in german about this spk. Does anyone at this forum have a personal experience with them.

A new one on me, but I'd not even think about it without listening first! Shocked

Itís highly unlikely that a good clone of an old BBC design has been allowed out of China as they command very high levels of indebted servitude.

So youíre probably looking at a forgery of a copy!

Run away, unless you can afford to burn the money Cool .

They're not clones. The drive units don't even look close. Nice looking, but not 3/5As.
