Spendor SP3/1R2 Speakers

Compact with high power handling and a natural sound that belies its size, the Spendor SP3/1R² 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 SP3/1R².

The latest R² version features a new bass/mid driver with an uprated voice coil and linear flux motor system. A low velocity large area reflex port compliments the improved low frequency alignment. Our wide-surround tweeter now brings a new level of clarity to this classic design.

  • New 22mm wide surround tweeter for extended response
  • High grade crossover network with gold conductors
  • Silver plated pure copper internal cables throughout
  • Gold plated binding posts on the rear
  • Temperature stabilised rubberised cabinet damping pads
  • Classic thin-wall design to reference standards

Hi-Fi Choice magazine 'Ultimate Group Test' March 2009

"...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."
