Spendor S6 Floorstanding Speakers

Listing #: 197173048
Spendor S6 speakers in Cherry. Good condition apart from top right edge of one speaker a little rough (see photo). Spendor, along with Harbeth & Rogers, have a magic about the way they reproduce music that came out of designs for the BBC.

8 ohms
88 dBw sensitivity. Very easy to drive, I've been using them with a 40w Naim NAP140 amp.

"A very few speakers that I have come across in my thirty years in this business, have possessed the ability to fall into the graces of most all who listen. Im not exactly sure why, maybe its an even handed tonal presentation, maybe its low distortion, or possibly a specific frequency response curve. Who knows, maybe all of the above. For whatever reason, there are indeed a very few speakers that seem to be almost universally accepted.

As you might have guessed by now, I think Spendor fits into that exclusive club. Yet more than just being non-offensive, the Spendors have a genuinely likeable quality along with some real performance attributes. These designs are well respected for their superb recreation of all things spatial; they do the sound staging thing to a T. Resolution of lo-level detail is sparkling and, above all, a tonal palette that is musically satisfying. Oh yes, they do the rhythm and pace thing too." Galen Carol

Retail was $4000 in NZ when new. They have been superseded by the S6e model.
