Review - Spendor S3/5R2 Speakers By AV Forums
S pendor's new S3/5R2 speakers are reviewed by AV Forums. The Spendor S3/5R2's review price was £1,050.00. Overall the S3/5R2 has earned 9 out of 10 from AV Forums.

■ The Spendor S3/5R2's assets were its:

- Exceptional transparency and detail
- Easy to place
- Beautifully made.

■ Weak points for the S3/5R2 were:

- Limited bass extension
- Won't flatter poor partnering equipment
- Looks a little old fashioned.

AV Forums summarises the S3/5R2 as "Judged on bold numbers, the Spendor S3/5R2 is a curious choice. This is a speaker that costs £250 more than the superb KEF LS50 and where the KEF is a technical showpiece of clever design and materials, the Spendor's design principles date back the thick end of half a century. The thing is though that all other things being equal, there are pieces of music that you can play first on one speaker and then the other where the Spendor makes the KEF - and pretty much anything else at the price for that matter - sound broken.".
