Selling your LS3/5As

I am often contacted by someone with a pair of LS3/5As who wishes to sell them seeking some tips on how best to go about it and also wondering how much they are worth.

How much are they worth?

There isn't a guide to secondhand LS3/5A prices and the market does fluctuate. However all LS3/5As and related parts are of interest to buyers internationally. The price will depend on their age (older is often more expensive), condition, rarity, the manufacturer, their provenance and demand at the time.

A completed listings search on ebay under LS3/5A will soon give an idea of the current value of all but the rare pairs.

As I write (May 2012) there are several recent sales listed (all prices in GBP £):

Of the 15 ohm LS3/5As, pairs of Rogers have been selling for between £700 and £900, a pair of Audiomasters sold for £840, Spendors for £600 and a pair of Chartwells for £1320

Pairs of 11 ohm Rogers have been selling for about £700

Where can I sell them?

Some tips for getting the best price.
