The Stereo 50 “full system” including the Retro LS 3.5 is a match made in audio heaven. The LS3.5 is iFi’s 21st century take on the legendary BBC LS3/5a. To create the LS3.5 speaker, iFi scoured the globe for the very latest technologies and ideal materials. The result is a deep, wide and open sonic signature with spine-tingling tonality.
Swimming completely against the tide, the LS 3.5 was designed by iFi for iFi, so you won’t find its drivers or features on any other speaker, regardless of price.
The silk-dome, horn-loaded tweeter (1.1”) and coated natural paper wideband driver (4.5”) were developed in-house. Both drivers were design by iFi and used by iFi, which is unprecedented for a mass market speaker.
Its non-resonant bamboo cabinet is both environmentally-friendly and uncompromising in its sonic performance. The cabinet is 3x stronger than wood and yet only half its weight thus not over-damped.
It is perfectly time-aligned and has internal acoustic technology that leaves other speakers lagging behind. Even the internal structure has been finely tuned (sound bar/braces) using musical instrument manufacturing methods.
All this coupled with the Stereo 50’s XBass and 3D Holographic for Speakers technologies creates a sonic synergy that is simply out of this world.
Retro Stereo 50 Tube Amplifier
The Retro Stereo 50 is an all-in-one tube stereo system: from Bluetooth aptx (phone/pad) to High-res digital (computer) to vinyl (turntable). Everyone can bring their music and be able to connect to the Stereo 50 and produce music that simply astounds. There really is nothing like the Retro Stereo 50.
Got headphones? The Stereo 50 with separate 3.5mm and 6.3mm inputs is just for you. Each headphone input has its own dedicated gain and sensitivity to perfectly match high-sensitivity In-Ear-Monitors and low-sensitivity Over-the-Ear headphones respectively. The 6.3mm output pumps out a “turbo-charged” 7,000mW. So even the most demanding of headphones such as the HiFi Man HE-6 has met its match.

Retro LS3.5 Reference Class Monitors
The LS3.5 is iFi’s 3.0 reboot of the classic BBS LS3/5A, which is half a century after its launch still in high demand and revered. iFi has taken the design back to its basic underpinnings and then re-engineered the LS3.5 ground-up for the 21st century. From designing the drivers (not OEM) to the cabinet terminals iFi demonstrates the highest attention to detail.
The Retro LS3.5 is in many ways a synthesis of the best of the BBC LS3/5A and dash of the Le Petite. iFi eliminated their respective drawbacks using the very latest technological advancements available. So think of the iFi LS3/5A as BBC LS3/5a+Le Petite with an injection of factor X.
