I have owned my pair of Rogers LS35As for nearly 30 years from new, and have been extremely happy with the countless hours of pleasure they have given me - and still do. Over they years they have been paired with amplification from Sugden, Quad, Sony (well,even Homer nodded) and currently Musical Fidelity. They were refurbished/serviced 5/6 years ago by Stirling Audio and I don't think I could ever bear to part with them. In fact I still keep my Garrard 401/SME combo which I bought at the same time, even though I haven't played an LP in donkey's years.
However, having noticed the prices they fetch second-hand and with the realisation that everything moves on, I began to wonder what, if anything, is out there currently which may regarded as a modern equivalent, or even be a superior choice?
My only slight criticism of their sound is the comparatively lumpy bass, an acknowledged feature of the design and understandable, given the size of the enclosures. This tends to muddy some lesser recordings. Any ideas, anyone?
