Compact with high power handling and a natural sound that belies its size, the Spendor Classic SP3/1 draws together some of the most advanced features of Spendor designs resulting in a compact, high quality monitor loudspeaker. Loudspeakers of this size normally have difficulty in delivering a consistent sound across the frequency range, adding unnecessary colouration and dynamic inequalities to the stereo image but this is not the case with the Spendor Classic SP3/1.

"...the SP3/1R2 has a midrange to die for - beautifully neutral and essentially free from colouration with an exceptionally wide dynamic range and negligible boxiness. Excellent overall coherence attests to the fine integration of the two drive units, as well as the natural sweetness of the new tweeter, ensuring fine stereo imaging with good depth perspectives..."

"The real star of the show, though, was the £1600 Spendor SP3/1R2. It might lack some bass weight, but it more than makes up for this with its lovely open midband neutrality, well suppressed box effects and fine dynamic range."

Spendor Classic series

The Spendor Classic Series is a range of stand-mounted loudspeakers which has been developed from the experience of over 30 years of Spendor heritage and experience.

Whilst there have been constant advances and refinements to the original technology used in the first Spendor products, the attention to fine detail remains and is embodied in the award winning Classic Series products.

The Latest 'R' series classic speakers combine all the advantages in materials technology that have been developed for the new Spendor speakers, but retain the traditional styling and sound balance one would expect from these monitor grade loudspeakers.

Spendor Audio at a glance

Spendor loudspeakers are designed and hand built at the Spendor factory in Hailsham, Sussex in the UK. Traditional craftmanship, skilled design capability and modern engineering materials all combine to produce superbly built loudspeakers with models to suit any taste or application.

Spendors unique bass and mid drive units are also designed and built in Hailsham. Many other manufacturers are content to buy in standard, or slightly modified versions of drive units easily obtainable from component suppliers, whilst claiming the drive units as their own. Not so with Spendor. The main drivers are the heart of the loudspeaker, and should be designed and built with care, and without compromise.

Originally founded in the 1960's by Spencer and Dorothy Hughes, Spendor grew out of the expertise gained in the BBC's sound engineering department. The original BC1 design became the studio monitor of choice and soon this and other designs were to be developed for the consumer market.

For well over 30 years a succession of distinctive and innovative products has set a reference standard for consumer and professional users. Many Spendor designs have earned international cult status amongst discerning audiophiles and sound engineers, and the virtues of such classics as the Spendor BC1 and LS3/5a are embodied in today's products.
