Spendor was founded in the late 1960s by Spencer and Dorothy Hughes – the ‘Spen’ and ‘Dor’ in the name. Spencer applied the knowledge and expertise he’d gained as an engineer in the BBC’s sound engineering department to create his first loudspeaker, the BC1. This game-changing design quickly became the monitor of choice for broadcasters and recording studios worldwide.
Almost 50 years on, the influence of the iconic BC1 and its successors can be seen and heard in our range of distinctive, innovative loudspeakers. Spendor remains the reference standard for both discerning audiophiles and professional sound engineers, delivering a transparent, natural and musical sound that truly captivates you.
THE COLOUR OF MUSIC
The goal of high-end loudspeakers is to deliver a clear, transparent sound. This is precisely so the infinitely subtle shades, tones and colours of the music itself can shine through, free of distortion, interruption and compromise.
We all experience music in a unique and personal way. It is an intense, immersive experience that engages the emotions and intellect, as well as the senses. Spendor loudspeakers reveal these details and subtleties that open new windows on the performance, and transform the way you connect with music – they bring music vibrantly to life.
FROM CONCEPT TO CREATION
Manufacturing a loudspeaker, particularly one that performs as brilliantly as a Spendor, is no easy task. In this video, each stage of the build process has been beautifully documented.
It takes us six days to build a loudspeaker and a whole year to design one.
