Acoustic Research AR 28ls


AR 28ls

Speakers from this early 80’s Acoustic Research range used to regularly find themselves in recording studios, being used as desk-top monitors. This is exactly where these were previously used - until the normal problem of foam-rot ruined the bass unit foam surrounds.

These are much too nice quality to dump, so we decided to have them repaired – with brand new foam surrounds that will be good for another 20-odd years.

Now they sound just as crisp and clear as they did when they were new.

The cabinets and drivers are all in excellent condition but the studio discarded the grilles many years ago.

So – if you’re looking for a cracking pair of monitors for not much money – here they are.

Approximate dimensions: 51 high x 28 wide x 19 deep (cm)
