Brand: Spendor
RRP: $3599

The Spendor A5 offers exceptional performance in relation to its compact dimensions. New drive units based on technology developed for the recently launched Spendor SA1 ensure clear and natural mid-range and a beautifully open treble.

The new 15cm drive units have a magnesium alloy chassis to support the long throw motor system which helps to give these loudspeakers a remarkably big and powerful sound. The fluid cooled 22mm wide-surround tweeter completes the driver array.

The linear flow reflex port system allows the A5 to be placed in relatively close proximity to rear walls with minimal interaction, and the structural spike support system provides solid clean bass response.
