Spendor A5R : 2.5-way floorstand loudspeaker

The new Spendor A5R is an ultra‐compact high‐performance 2 .5 way, floor‐standing loudspeaker. The A5R sets new class standards for sound quality, efficiency, ease of drive, dispersion and low frequency phase coherence. The A5R reproduces all types of music with captivating clarity and a natural sense of timing and dynamics.

We believe the Spendor A5R is the most room‐friendly ultra‐compact floor standing loudspeaker ever created. With its slim elegant proportions, and sound performance which is almost independent of room placement it is the perfect loudspeaker for any small room.

Because the A5R is efficient and easy to drive it doesn`t place heavy demands on your amplifier. That means you don`t have to spend a fortune on your amplifier to put together a brilliant sound system.

We`ve applied our Spendor D‐line technology to create a pair of Spendor drivers which are mechanically and electrically designed to work in perfect harmony in a single sealed acoustic enclosure. Both drivers feature cast magnesium alloy chassis, high efficiency motor systems, optimised electrodynamic damping, and excellent thermal dissipation for wide dynamic range. A 15cm EP77 polymer coned bass‐mid driver handles all the mid‐range frequencies and, at modest listening levels, most of the low frequencies, with superb clarity and vanishingly low distortion.

As the low frequency content of the music increase s an ultra‐rigid two part bonded Kevlar composite coned 15cm driver begins to handle more of the low frequencies. The low inertia Kevlar cone allows it to react instantly and seamlessly to changes in the music signal - just like the second turbocharger in a modern high performance car engine.
