What HFL Thinks
Spendor D1 Speakers - Spendor are one of the longest running and most respected speaker manufacturers in the world today, and for good reason, if you like a natural, unforced, open and clean sound then look no further, whether it is a small bookshelf speaker or a reference monitor they have it covered. Please check back shortly as we write our thoughts on the excellent Spendor range of speakers.
The new Spendor D1 is the smallest loudspeaker in the D-line and a worthy successor to the award winning SA1. Listeners will be captivated by it's charming sound, surprised by it's clarity and definition, assured by performance and engineering of the highest order, and delighted by luxurious modern finishes.
