The Spendor D7 delivers music with a fresh vibrant realism that conventional loudspeakers cannot match. This new level of performance is the direct result of important Spendor innovations.
The Spendor LPZ tweeter is built around a stainless steel front plate that forms an acoustic chamber directly in front of the lightweight diaphragm. The phase correcting microfoil equalises sound wave path lengths whilst generating a symmetrical pressure environment so the tweeter operate in a balanced linear mode. The D7 mid-bass drive unit has an advanced EP77 polymer cone, whilst the low frequency drive unit uses a bonded Kevlar composite.
The latest fifth generation Spendor Linear Flow port features a twin-venturi, tapered baffle element working in harmony with Spendor's proven dynamic damping, asymmetric bracing and rigid plinth mountings.
Due to the need to place these very close to the wall, my choice was always going to include Spendor floor standers; I owned a pair of S6e's previously. What these remarkable D7 speakers do is achieve that very rare combination of being analytical and utterly musical. The soundstage is holographic regardless of source material and seamless across the frequency range. Be warned that, as with all fine equipment, faults in recordings are clear to hear. I drive them with a Devialet amplifier and this is a magical combination, which with the proposed SAM upgrade can only get better. Spendor themselves demo their kit with these French amplifiers. All in all this is a speaker which I am unlikely to want to upgrade, and that is perhaps the ultimate audiophile compliment. In that my wife regards them as the most attractive pair we have owned so far, this may become a permanent fixture.
