Introducing the new Stirling Broadcast SB-88 Domestic Monitor Loudspeaker.

Stirling Broadcast is proud to present another outstanding loudspeaker design by Derek Hughes. This new loudspeaker is a two-way design, being similar to the Stirling Broadcast LS3/6 but with a slightly smaller cabinet and without the 'super-tweeter'. The LF and HF units are the same custom units as used in the Stirling Broadcast LS3/6.

The SB-88 is a two-way, stand-mounted loudspeaker with a 1" soft-dome tweeter and an 8" polypropylene woofer. It uses the traditional BBC thin-walled, internally braced cabinet, but with its front and rear panels glued rather than screwed on. With a convincing soundstage and a sound that was laid-back, sweet, and honest, the SB-88 always drew ST deep into the music. "The SB-88s don't wow me," he said. "They comfort me." Stereophile Recommended Component


The loudspeaker has an IEC268 power handling of 90 watts contnuous and a frequency response of 48Hz - 18kHz +/-3dB, with a crossover point of 3kHz.

The sensitivity is 87db for 1 watt at 1 metre, and the maximum output is 107dB.

The loudspeaker utilises a 22cm LF drive unit SB-4432 and a 27mm HF unit SB-4434, and the nominal impedance is 8ohms.

The connections are by bi-wired screw terminals accepting both 4mm plugs and bare wires up to 4mm cross sectional area.

The cabinet is 27cm wide, 30cm deep and 50cm high and of a thin wall damped construction with internal standing wave damping, finished in pair matched wood veneer with a matt lacquer finish. The weight is 14.4kg.

The new speaker ideally requires 480mm high stands and Stirling Broadcast can supply matching stands

"Wow! Classical Music with all the rich tone of a concert hall. This is truly the BBC Sound, it is as if you could now finally buy a brand new set of BC-1s, only better!"

We’ve just received the new SB-88 compact monitor from Stirling Brodcast and it is a stroke of understated excellence.

Fresh out of the box, they sound a little stiff, but 50 hours of dynamic program material at moderate volume has them on full song.  An 8-inch, two way design, they resemble the BBC LS 3/6 design, though in a slightly smaller cabinet.  Sound is relatively close to the Harbeth Compact 7, that is a favorite here at TONEAudio.


The following Editions/Veneers are available:
Black Ash
Ebony "Limited Edition Gold Label"
Rosewood "Limited Edition Gold Label"
