The music lovers speakers, Spendors are all about tone. To allow them to continue to make beautiful music I have reduced the price yet again  to encourage a buyer to take a punt!

 

Due to a combination of COVID boredom, FOMO and attempts to get my new listening space (aka hifi hell) to sound decent I have found myself with an excessive amount of gear and need to make some space. I'm also taking a huge swerve across to single full range drivers and SET amps. As a poor decision maker I'm not able to decide what goes so I am leaving it to the market to decide for me! For sale is a pair of Spendor SP1 speakers, classic three way design built on the Spendor BC1 which is rightfully regarded as a classic. Personally the SP1 and Rogers Export Monitors are even better than the BC1. But don't just take my word for it, listen to Dr John! https://cheaptubeaudio.blogspot.com/2008/07/overview-spendor-loudspeakers.html.

 

Like the BC1 the SP1 are all about musicality. Forget about dissecting the music, just get into it. I have run these with SS and tube power (PP and SET) and in all cases it sounded wonderful. The benign impedance loads make it a easy speaker for tubes even if sensitivity is only reasonable. Drivers are perfectly operating, cabinets are in pretty god condition overall but a bit of oil would make them really come up a treat. I have tried to capture the significant defects in my photos. Serial numbers are sequential and they are a matched pair with the mirrored offset porting. Stands are included. Local buyers welcome to audition but any interstate would need to be a pack n send job, too big for me. Buy yourself a classic!

This speaker sound amazingly good required a good amp to drive . I doubt that many modern speaker three time the price can sound as good as this Spendor . Beautiful midrange , voice , string and deep bass will surprise many listeners .
