Presented in a traditional veneered enclosure, the Spendor SP100R² has a powerful visual presence to match its gloriously full scale sound. It is an evolution of the Spendor BC3, S100, S100P, SP100 and SP100R loudspeaker systems. These have been recipients of numerous awards: the prestigious French Diapason d'or and the Japanese 'Component of the year' accolade to name but two.
The Spendor SP100R² continues to set the standard by which other full-size loudspeakers must be judged.
The SP100R² is a testament to Spendor's unique understanding of cabinet design. Critical positioning of the drive units and internal enclosures control and reduce unwanted resonances to an absolute minimum.
The Spendors possessed a snappy, tight and extremely rhythmic bottom end... ...orchestral music had that great sense of authority and scale that it so believable, while well recorded rock music with real drums was just awesome" Hi-Fi Plus Magazine 2008.
"A wonderfully engaging sound with plenty of scale; tonal refinement; great midrange; easy to drive and partner... ...few if any can deliver music - any music from Metallica to Madonna to Mahler - in such a fluid, natural and downright insightful manner. There are some great speakers at this price level, but it's hard to think of any that deliver such a beguilingly balanced performance" What Hi-Fi April 2008.
"The SP100R²'s are gentle giants. They do everything you could hope for in such a large design, but with a grace and refinement that their appearance doesn't even hint at."
"...the SP100R² doesn't smack you in the chest. Instead the lows flow, swelling as the music demands, while agility and definiton are still crisp. Move upward and it's all good news. The new in-house midrange unit along with the 22mm wide surround tweeter combine to deliver a lovely, natural presentation. The SP100R² manages to sound fluid, informative and entertaining without edginess, even with poor recordings."
"Perhaps the SP100R²'s biggest strength is that they're easy to listen to for hours without getting tiring. Their ability to reveal and entertain while remaining undemanding is a rare one." What Hi-Fi 2011.
