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 integrationDescription 2-way stand or open-shelf mounting loudspeaker Enclosure type Sealed HF drive unit 22mm wide-surround dome with fluid cooling MF / LF drive unit Spendor 140mm ep39 cone Sensitivity 84dB for 1 watt at 1 metre Crossover point 5 kHz Frequency response 75 Hz to 20 kHz ± 3dB anechoic Typical in-room response -6dB at 60 Hz Impedance 8 ohms nominal Impedance minimum 6.2 ohms Power handling 100 watts unclipped programme Terminals 2/3 way binding posts single-wired Cabinet (HxWxD) 305 x 165 x 190mm Finish black ash, cherry, light oak, dark walnut Weight 4.6 kg each Stand height 500-650mm (not supplied) Accesories Wall mounting bracket (specify when ordering
