Spendor S3/5R

 

The S3/5Rs are an extremely likeable, pure-sounding speaker that could do with beefing up in the bass department

These are the SE model. I was able to audition at home these and the newer "R" model of the S3/5, and much preferred the SE. Hat's off to Lorne and Ed at Executive Stereo (Toronto) for allowing the home audition and considerable patience. I'm using...
