We design, engineer and build all our loudspeakers in the UK. Every Spendor loudspeaker is assembled at our production facility in Sussex, with components and cabinets all refined through our own in-house R&D program.

Our loudspeakers are easy to set up, work perfectly with whatever Hi-Fi or Home Theatre equipment you have and transform the way you hear and enjoy every style of music or sound track. Their timeless, elegant design, which has evolved over five decades, makes them instantly and unobtrusively at home in any room. Best of all, they deliver a true, transparent and musical sound way beyond their price point.

Creating the perfect loudspeaker requires an understanding of the link between the technical measurements and what we hear. Captivating products require intense listening that is inspired by a passion for music. In the below video Philip Swift (MD & CEO) explains this in more depth.


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.

Over 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 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 audio 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 the audio – they bring an immersive sensory experience vibrantly to life.


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. This is what the process looks like for our D7.2 loudspeaker.


We’ve always applied innovative technology to deliver a natural, transparent and performance. The Spendor LPZ high frequency drive unit used in the D-Line products is designed to equalize sound-wave path lengths and generate a symmetrical pressure environment so the drive unit operates in a balanced linear mode.

The result is a clean, precise signal that highlights every detail and nuance, particularly in lyrics. Unique to Spendor, it is also incredibly natural and unforced, so you can enjoy listening for hours at a time without becoming fatigued.


It is increasingly rare to find a brand that manufactures its own drive units in-house – and even fewer that make their own cabinets – since these tasks require experience, expertise and serious investment. Spendor is one of them. From a pair of A1s in natural oak to the Classic 200s in a rich dark walnut, all Spendor loudspeaker cabinets go through a painstaking manufacturing process involving hours of labour, pair matching, staining and hand finishing to create their stunning looks.

If you are the kind of person who really appreciates craft, skill, imagination and attention to detail, you can choose any Spendor loudspeaker confident you are investing in true craftsmanship.


The distinctive Spendor sound is the product of our obsession with detail. The Spendor drive units work seamlessly together through efficient high quality crossover networks, creating short signal paths whilst being anchored directly to the rigid cabinet structure.

The in-house Spendor cabinets with their dynamic damping system gives a super-fast response, while high linearity components, high quality internal cables and a machined from solid stabilizer spike system used on floorstanding models, all contribute to a super-efficient class-leading performance.
