Review:

The Souther SLA-3 is capable of excellent performance. However, making it produce these results will require a good deal of patient adjusting and readjusting by the user. The SLA-3 is the best of it's type that I have seen - $850 Audio May 1984

They Said What?

"We listened to some music. The sound was not prickly or thorny at all. It was clean, clear, and immediate—bold and well-controlled—with vibrant colors and good senses of rhythm, touch, and scale."

- Stephen Mejias, Stereophile
