The Graham Audio Chartwell LS6
Following the success of the Graham Audio LS3/5 and LS5/9, we were curious to discover what could be done with a cabinet that was sized somewhere between the two.
The result is the Chartwell LS6, designed by Derek Hughes. A custom built 6 inch long-throw bass drive unit mated to a compact 17 litre cabinet gives bass extension and power handling that is comparable to the LS5/9. The bespoke 19mm dome tweeter extends to beyond 20kHz. The overall response retains the smoothness of both the LS3/5 and LS5/9. A large rear mounted port gives effortless bass, while allowing us to minimise the size of the cabinet to allow it to blend easily into typical domestic environments.
A sophisticated crossover network blends the two units and equalises the overall response for optimum performance in free space. A switch on the front baffle adjusts the tweeter level to +1dB or +2dB. This can be useful for situations where the listening position is off axis.
In common with all our loudspeakers, the cabinet uses the classic BBC "thinwall" construction, where the panels are mass-loaded to ensure that resonances are moved away from the critical mid-range region, and a layer of Rockwool is held in place by fabric to provide air damping. Hand-matched veneers are applied and finished to a very high standard. The grille is carefully designed to minimise diffraction effects and is held in place by concealed rare-earth magnets.
I purchased these speakers on a sale or return basis, as they weren’t available for dealer audition. I was particularly interested in both the vocal and acoustic instrument performance - I replacing my outgoing B&W 705 s2 speakers. Initially I was unconvinced, as seemed initially a little reticent at first, but as the days wore on they opened up and not only gave the characteristics I was looking for, but also a bigger soundstage than the B&W’s. They perform well with LP, CD & Streaming sources and work superbly with my Naim Nova (& Gold Note P10 in particular). The presentation gives real depth and placement of instruments, so that the overall performance is very satisfying. Thumbs up to Igloo for securing them and delivering so quickly..Excellent Customer Service.

The BBC style monitor speaker seemed to fit my needs - retro style, emphasis on clarity but with just enough bottom end. After reading several online reviews I decided to buy without auditioning, safe in the knowledge that Peter at Igloo Audio would let me return if I was unhappy. Well the speakers are everything and more than I could have wished for. More lower frequencies than I expected, super clean mids. Solid and beautifully made in the UK. Very impressed not only with the speakers but also with the service and advice from Peter at Igloo. Many thanks.
