I was looking to sell a pair of Spendor S3/5R monitors. These are a great pair of speakers, and in my opinion where Spendor got the LS3/5 model "right" The first version was a little too dull up top, the "SE" too etched... It was with the R model that they nailed the proper balance between the needs of the modern discerning audiophile and the spirit of the original inspiration.
I originally chose these speakers because I preferred them to the Harbeth's due to the magical vocal quality of their presentation. It was like Paul Simon and Ladysmith Black Mambazo where in the room with me.
The speakers are in great condition, I only rated down to an 8 because I no longer have the grills. For optimum quality, Spendor recommends listening without the grill anyways. Regardless, I have dropped my asking price to reflect it.
I am looking for $649. Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions, offers etc.(no lowballing please) If you are in the greater Sacramento area, feel free to stop by for an audition.
If you buy them at full price I will throw in a pair of DiMarzio interconnects.(pictured below) Check out this link for more info. http://www.headphone.com/accessories/cables/dimarzio-high-def-speaker-cables-5-ft.php
