Vintage Speakers - Rogers Studio2 2 x 500w
BBC developed for their own broadcast vehicles, but later licensed the design to a variety of companies, the first of which was Rogers. Rogers has long been known as one of the leading manufacturers of speakers since the days of its founding by Jim Rogers in 1947. Since the advent of its signature model, the BBC Rogers LS3/5a, in the early 1970's, Rogers speakers have long been prized and sought after by collectors on the modern international market place. It is helpful to know that. The corporation Swisstone bought Rogers´ name and sold shortly after the speaker "Rogers LS3/5a". Since its first introduction, this model has sold approximately 42,000 pairs under Rogers´name. Indeed, the LS3/5a speaker system has gone down in history as one of the most reliable models ever introduced. Due to BBC´s licensing there are a few other companies producing the LS3/5a in smaller numbers, which are approx. 10.000
