Excerpt: Five stars in January 2009, same again in February 2009 and then… nothing. We’ve had the Spendor A5s out in our listening rooms often since then, of course, but this is their first formal review in over two years. For a speaker that stands just 79cm high, the A5s are pretty heavy – it’s almost as if they’re made from concentrated essence of loudspeaker.
Pros: Startling scale and punch, detailed and subtle too
Cons: Relatively low sensitivity, won', t suit the smallest listening rooms
