Spendor A9 Floor Standing Speakers

 "Amazingly clean and transparent sound, agility, seamless integration; relatively unfussy about positioning. The A9 hasn't lost the naturalness of past Spendor models, and it's that quality, more than any other, that separates this floorstander from its rivals. There's much to impress in this performance. Another excellent Spendor speaker. We're sure you'll be impressed."  -  What Hi-Fi, Five Star Award, June 2010

The Spendor A9 is a full-size 3-way floor standing loudspeaker. It has the resolution, dynamic range, and low frequency extension to realize the breathtaking realism which the finest sources can deliver from well-recorded hi-resolution uncompressed audio source material.

The Spendor A9 loudspeaker sets a new standard for performance, flexibility and value. At the heart of the A9 is a new 5 inch Spendor mid-range drive unit. Based on technology developed for the highly acclaimed Spendor SA1 mini-monitor loudspeaker, it features an ep38 polymer cone, an advanced motor system and a remarkably wide operating bandwidth.

Based on technology developed for the Spendor ST loudspeaker, Spendor has engineered a pair of 7 inch Kevlar cone bass drivers specifically for the A9. They have magnesium alloy chassis, huge power handling, vanishingly low out-of band radiation, and powerful electrodynamic damping.

A new 1 inch wide-surround tweeter, with bi-elliptical acoustic lens technology, combines the extended frequency response of a small diaphragm with the low frequency characteristics of a larger diaphragm to give stable low distortion response over a wide frequency range and listening area. 

Timing is fundamental to the musical experience. In conventional loudspeakers rigid high density cabinet panels are mass-damped to reduce cabinet-talk. Spurious energy is stored and released
slowly. This creates unacceptable blurring and slowing of the sound. Spendor’s solution is Dynamic Damping. Small low mass constrained polymer dampers at key energy interface points instantly convert any spurious energy in the cabinet into inaudible heat. The result is a naturally fast and engaging sound.

A new approach to low-frequency engineering with no damping of the main acoustic volume, combined with a 4th generation Spendor linear-flow port, guarantees consistent high quality bass in almost any listening room, large or small, even if the cabinets are positioned close to a wall.

The base of each A9 cabinet carries four machined steel stabilizer inserts. These contribute to the neat appearance and good stability. The stabilizers are secured directly into the main structure of the cabinet so that micro-movement or flexing of the plinth and feet (which can blur fine detail and destroy ambience) is eliminated.

With slim ‘A-line’ styling, a choice real wood veneers, cherry, wenge and black ash, and a contrasting satin black lacquer plinth, the new A9s will blend comfortably and confidently with almost any room décor.
