I am selling my pair of the current Spendor SP2/3R2 loudspeakers in cherry wood finish. I purchased these directly from an authorized Spendor dealer. I have the original boxes and will double box them for safe shipping. I am asking $2500. Buyer is responsible for actual shipping charges via FedEx Ground and PP fee if applicable. Weight given is for a single speaker. Please contact me with any questions, and thanks for looking!
From the WHAT HI*FI review:
How do the SP2/3R2s sound? The large cabinet and big mid/bass drivers give these speakers a balance of qualities alien to most of the (invariably smaller) competition. Their sonic presentation is huge, delivering Hans Zimmer’s Interstellar OST with class-leading authority and scale. Lows are deep and powerful but textured with a rare delicacy. They’re rich – perhaps lacking a little grip – but dovetail into the midrange wonderfully. While these standmounters don’t go out of their way to highlight detail, you’ll find they have excellent resolution – low-level instrumental strands remain easy to follow no matter how complex the music gets. It’s all so unforced, almost relaxed but without eroding the music’s energy too much. We expect something of this size to be able to cope with large-scale dynamic swings, and the SP2/3Rs do. There’s plenty of reach here, and a refusal to harden up when pushed at high volumes. Less expected is the way these speakers handle the subtleties – the micro-dynamics that communicate the emotion in a voice or underline the skill of a musician. In this area the Spendors are superb, outstripping just about any sub-£3000 alternative we can think of.
Some alternatives sound more exciting, but we think the Spendors’ easy-going yet insightful nature has plenty of appeal. They’re the kind of speakers that leave you thinking about the quality of the music rather than grabbing your attention with sonic fireworks. That trade-off is just fine with us.
