For over two decades Spendor was licensed to manufacture the legendary LS3/5a BBC mini-monitor loudspeaker. It became an international reference standard. In 1998 when Spendor learned that manufacture of the LS3/5a drive units was to cease, we decided to develop our own 140mm (5inch) bass-midrange drive unit using modern materials and technology. Combining this with the new tweeter developed for the SA1, new crossover engineering, reinforcement and damping developed for the R line, and a more up-to-date look we created the Spendor S3/5R2. Many discerning listeners consider it to be the most transparent and truly musical mini-loudspeaker they have ever heard and the S3/5R2 has won many awards.
The Absolute Sound
"Indeed, throughout the the crucial midrange, this new model may be the most neutral and natural sounding mini-monitor I know."
"...the S3/5R's bass is more well-defined
and articulate than either of it's predecessors... ...the S3/5R also
sounds more open and coherent."
"This remains a true mini-monitor. No laws of
physics have been circumvented, but they have been intelligently
manipulated to produce a superior example of the subcompact genre.
Readers looking for small speakers to serve both high accuracy and high
musicality in an intimate setting should put the S3/5R at the top of
their audition list."
