Spendor Say

For over two decades Spendor was licensed to manufacture the legendary LS3/5a BBC mini-monitor loudspeaker. It became an international reference standard.

The Spendor S3/5 was launched in 1997. It gained worldwide recognition as the natural successor to the LS3/5a. Ten years later a new S3/5R acheived what many thought impossible - new levels of transparency and imaging coherency, more articulate bass delivery and the enjoyable fatigue free listening experience which so clearly distinguished the original Spendor S3/5 from other small loudspeakers.

The new S3/5R² takes a big step forward with significant improvements in low frequency articulation, dynamics, transparency and sound integration.

Reviews have been superb as we'd expect. Spendor know how to make high quality compact loudspeakers.


"Perhaps the biggest revelation is the human voice. The speakers portrayal of voices is bettered by none and matched by few rival speakers, irrespective of price."

"Strikingly natural monitor that's forgiving of placement and the rest of the system. Voices and acoustic instruments are portrayed with stunning accuracy."

"Consider the S3/5R as your final exam in hi-fi. If you have the right room and the maturity to look past the flashy presentation of many speakers, this could be the last loudspeaker you will ever buy. Even if you 'fail' this exam, and choose more immediately exciting speakers, remember that S3/5R's will still be waiting for you to grow up. "
