Spendor SA1 : 2-way stand or open-shelf mounted mini-monitor loudspeaker

The new Spendor SA1 is the most musical and revealing small loudspeaker ever created by Spendor.

You will be captivated by its charming sound, surprised by its clarity and definition, assured by performance and engineering of the highest order, and delighted by luxurious modern finishes.

To complement the performance and style of the SA1 we have created an optional matching stand. Within the elegant flowing form of the SA1 stand is a rigid, light, non-resonant structure which ensures that spurious energy and vibration can never degrade the sound.

Each stand has a front inlay to visually match the material and finish of the SA1 cabinet. This 2-way infinite baffle design has a new 15cm Spendor bass-mid drive unit with magnesium alloy chassis, ep38 polymer cone, advanced surround material and a large excursion motor system. An all-new 22mm wide-surround tweeter combines the extended frequency response of a small diaphragm with the low frequency characteristics of a larger diaphragm to give stable low distortion response over a very wide frequency range. A meticulously refined crossover network with hi-grade electrical components and gold plated conductors integrates the drivers seamlessly in a phase-aligned configuration.

Summary of all reviews.

HiFi Choice Magazine - July 2010
"Standing head and shoulders above the rest, the Spendor SA1 is unquestionably one of the finest sub-miniatures ever. It works quite beautifully when placed close to a wall and looks superb in its high gloss lacquer finish. It clearly demonstrates the virtue of a really well-developed and refined small speaker."

Stereophile Magazine - August 2009
"Overall, Spendor's SA1 offers superbly musical reproduction from a surprisingly small package. I strongly recommend it, particularly to those who have small rooms and high expectations."

The Absolute Sound Magazine - September 2009
"I have yet to experience any speaker whose sonic characteristics are better suited to the demands of extended intimate listening. In a desktop environment the SA1 ranks as a grand champion, and if not worthy of a crown, it has certainly earned membership in my personal mini-monitor pantheon."
