Spendor Classic 100 Bookshelf Loudspeakers (pair)
This three-way classic British monitor with a 12" woofer offers handsome 1970s aesthetics with thoroughly modern components and engineering
Serious audio enthusiasts know and love the direct, transparent, and energetic presentation of a style of loudspeakers developed as monitors for the BBC. Over five decades Spendor's version of the BBC monitor, the Classic line, has earned iconic status as the reference standard for audiophiles, musicians, and professional sound engineers.
The Classic 100 has roots that stretch back to the legendary Spendor BC3. With a new rigid light Kevlar composite 12" bass driver mounted in a die-cast alloy chassis, the Classic 100 delivers music with authority, power, and precision.
The BBC monitor aesthetic is beloved as well, and the Classic series offers all the nostalgia with none of the drawbacks. The new Classics feature meticulously refined crossover networks, enhanced cabinet structures, new elastomer panel damping and new style magnetic grilles. A totally new generation of Spendor drive units use advanced polymer and Kevlar cones, a cast magnesium alloy chassis, high-efficiency motor systems, optimized electro-dynamic damping, and excellent thermal dissipation.
The new Spendor Classic loudspeakers deliver music with a warmth and richness that does not sacrifice coherence and transparency.
