Product: New A6 Spendor A-Line Series
What Hi-Fi February 2009
"None of this prepared us for just how good these floorstanders sound. There's no doubt neutrality plays its part, but thats not the whole story. The A6's clarity is built on class-leading resolution and some lightning fast reflexes."
"These speakers stop and start with the best of them, capturing the leading edge of notes brilliantly. These are hard-hitting towers as at home with Ice T as they do with Mahler. However the traditional Spendor traits of refinement and naturalness aren't sacrificed in the quest for improved drive. By class standards these floorstanders remain eminently listenable..."
"These are brilliant speakers for the money."
"The A6's are stunning."
Hi-Fi PLUS February 2009
This speaker is noticeably more rigidly coupled than nearly all others - so much so that you have to conclude that this factor contributes seriously to the superb sonic results."
"...the Spendor can undo much bigger and intially more impressive competitors by dint of its sheer musical coherence and direct communication. It just sounds like music, like people, like a band having fun - and a world away from the disjointed mess generated by so many expensive speaker systems."
"Deliver a clean feed and the results are simply staggeringly engaging and enjoyable."
"...I love the A6's. They're GRRRRREAT!"
Hi-Fi WORLD March 2009
"The well damped, even warm and enveloping sound sound of a Spendor loudspeaker is apparent with the A6 though and it isn't artifice; this like other Spendors has a truly pure midband."
"Spendor's new A6 floorstanders are expensive, but conspicuously different from the herd. Theirs is a well considered, well balanced approach born from the need to have a truthful studio monitor..."
"Even and uncoloured monitor sound, for those who want the truth."
"- neutral midband"
"- broad tonal palette"
"- rich, intense delivery"
What Hi-Fi 2009 Group Test Winner
"If it's dexterity and attack you value, the A6's have it in spades. The same goes for neutrality and transparency, for low frequency drive and poise, and for sheer mid-range articulation."
"When the going gets minimal, the A6's offer atmosphere to match any rival and can switch to full orchestral overload in an instant if so required."
"Expect uncompromised musicality, robust build and a premium finish."
