The Spendor SA1 Loudspeaker


Maybe I just like swimming against the tide… Maybe I just want to be different… Or maybe, just maybe I resent being told what to think… Anyway, more years ago than I care to remember, when I first started out in hi-fi retail, the mini-monitor debate...

Spendor SA1 loudspeaker review


Spendor's SA1 is back and it's a classy new miniature

Surprising dynamic expression ; Sounds impressively smooth with low coloration ; Excellent stereo imaging ; Above all it's a fine musical communicator

The down side of any small loudspeaker with decent bass extension is that sensitivity will be low and ultimate loudness capability will be modest

Spendor SA1 - £1,295


The BBC-inspired, relaunched SA1 isn't cheap, but its loveable presentation won over our blind listening panel

Beautiful, even tonality with nicely judged top end

Limited dynamic expression and loudness capability

A costly, but very high-quality sub-miniature with notably superior sound quality

Spendor SA1


These Spendor SA1s are ideal for those who want a top-class standmount, but have limited space

A superbly balanced sonic presentation ; great insight ; impressive scale and composure for size

It's a lot of money for such a small speaker
