    Spendor recently updated its website. Apparently they made some revisions to their entire Classic line.

    Did the Spendor BCIII have some kind of "foam" in front of the midrange driver ?
    I believe to have seen pictures of it, and there is some residues of acoustic foam inside the BCIII speaker front/grilles...

    Thanks in advance

    I have a pair of Spendor A5 in dark walnut, along with my Heco Direkt.
    A5s are a joy to listen to. They are able to fill a large room like mine (40 m2). All the reviews are right, fantastic sound, speed and "endlessly listenable".
    They work well with a wide range of amps. But i once tried them with a Naim Nait XS from a friend. They sounded bad, no sparkle, no punch, poor midrange. I dont know why. We tried them in his room as well but same result.
    The best sound i've heard was when paired with Sugden A21SE. Just 30 W of class A so you need to be careful with the volume. It was the most organic sound ever. I can really describe it as liquid.
    Some of the best speakers ever. As they are now discontinued they can be had for a very good price and are speakers for a lifetime.

    Oh, and if you come across a comment like "polite sound" just ignore it. It means they sound just right. Other speakers may sound exciting on a short demo but once the thrill is gone you will be left with a fatiguing sound and a wish to change. Much like going home with that hot pole dancer and ending with someone unable to articulate a conversation.
    Spendor is one of the very few makers that never made a bad sounding speaker in any of their range.
