Spendor Classic 4/5 Bookshelf Loudspeakers (pair)
This two-way classic British monitor with a 6" woofer offers handsome 1970s aesthetics with thoroughly modern components and engineering
Serious audio enthusiasts know and love the direct, transparent, and energetic presentation of a style of loudspeakers developed as monitors for the BBC. Over five decades Spendor's version of the BBC monitor, the Classic line, has earned iconic status as the reference standard for audiophiles, musicians, and professional sound engineers.
The Spendor Classic 4/5 loudspeaker is a charming and beautifully balanced small speaker. As with most high-quality small sealed standmounts, it offers amazing directness and coherency, with pinpoint imaging. The bass is extremely tuneful and quick.
The BBC monitor aesthetic is beloved as well, and the Classic series offers all the nostalgia with none of the drawbacks. The new Classics feature meticulously refined crossover networks, enhanced cabinet structures, new elastomer panel damping and new style magnetic grilles. A totally new generation of Spendor drive units use advanced polymer and Kevlar cones, a cast magnesium alloy chassis, high-efficiency motor systems, optimized electro-dynamic damping, and excellent thermal dissipation.
The new Spendor Classic loudspeakers deliver music with a warmth and richness that does not sacrifice coherence and transparency.
