Spendor classic 2/3 is a Spendor SP2/3r2 posted on 03/09/2022
Reviewer: John Walsh
|Although the classic 2/3 is touted as new it really isn't all that different from the older SP2/3R2, having heard the classic 2/3 and owning the SP2/3R2 you might think me bias , but having home trialled them against my SP2/3R2 I find very little difference ,they are both exceptionally wonderful speakers with massive dynamics , stop on a dime damping when paired with the right amp , which of course gives transient performance sound lifelike , depth is astonishing with a good recording ,sound stage can be a bit awkward but ok if positioned correctly, and they can be bright on some recordings , overall both these Spendor models will give lifetime satisfaction to most people especially if you pair them with a dialled in sub woofer ,are they neutral NO, but musical YES and realistic to my ears especially on classical music

|For sake of comparative context, over the years I have owned B&W 803 and 805, Harbeth C7s and SL5+, Sonus Faber Cremona Auditor M and Olympica Nova I, and more.
The Spendor Classic 2/3 are hands down the most musically satisfying speaker that I have ever owned and potentially end game. These are smooth and forgiving speakers with enough detail, imaging and soundstage to satisfy your audiophile needs.
After 30 yrs, I am now done chasing the technically perfect system. If you are tired of churning out gear, go with the Spendor Classic and call it a day.
Associated Gear: Conrad Johnson Premier 12s and Act II and EF1, Bryston BDP2 and BDA3, Marantz SA11S3 and VPI Scout with MIT Speaker Cables and Siltech Interconnects.
