Slender "2½-way" floorstanding speaker in excellent condition. Rich cherry finish, as beautiful to the eye as it is to the ear. A chance to get a classic Spendor sound at a very reasonable price. Reluctantly parting with them as I'm dismantling my office system.
In his Stereophile review Art Dudley enthused:
"Orchestral recordings sounded convincingly, impressively big. An uncolored speaker that gets the notes and beats so essentially right, and is so emotionally direct and honest, that, for once, exceptional sound enhanced
the music-making rather than distracted from it, howsoever prettily. The Spendor S5e has what I consider a virtually perfect amount of bass in proportion with its clean, open, and pleasantly airy top end. I can’t imagine an honest listener who would consider this speaker to be too bright, too dull, or lacking in any other such way. Over the years, I’ve owned a few Classic Spendor loudspeakers that have been classics—I mean that both colloquially and in the literal, trade-name sense—and I’ve loved them for what they were. Yet the new S5e has things that simply weren’t part of the earlier Spendor recipe, including scale, drama, and utterly faultless pacing. I can’t recommended it strongly enough."
Functionally perfect and cosmetically excellent. Minimal signs of wear include a small scratch on the front below the driver (see photo).
Dual sets of binding posts for bi-wiring. Drive units: 1" fabric-dome tweeter, 5" polymer-cone midbass unit, 5" homopolymer-cone woofer. Impedance: 8 ohms nominal, 4.4 ohms minimum. Sensitivity: 87dB/W/m. Rear-facing reflex port.
30" H by 6.5" W by 10" D. The cabinet uses internal circumferential braces at each driver position for greater rigidity, and veneer is glued to the inside surfaces as well as to the outside, to keep the wood stable.
