OUR VERDICT - We could fill this page with reviews and accolades from worldwide press for the Spendor A4 but you have probably already read them, so let us tell you how we feel about these diminutive boxes of joy.
They are simply and unequivocally sublime - That's it, full stop, no more needs to be said, buy a pair as you will love them. We could stop there and be happy that we have upheld our end of the bargain but Google likes lots of words on a page so I am going to have to carry on. How can such a small and unassuming speaker produce such a great performance ? That's something we ask every time we play them in our demo room and its hard to pinpoint why the Spendor A4 are so likable. They have an uncanny trait of making you sit in your favourite seat and enjoy the music for longer than you intended. Even poor recordings or Bluetooth streamed music sounds acceptable enough to draw you in.
Don't let the size of the Spendor A4 fool you, the amount of bass ( Low end extension to you audiophiles ) these little boxes can produce is quite a feat of magic, especially for a single driver. As an example, I am quite fond of Deep House or Chilled House or whatever it is called this week, which usually tends to have quite a deep bass line so one of the first things cued up on Tidal is 'The Night Life' by Miguel Campbell Feat Beccs Lott'. This has a mixture of repetitive, punchy deep bass notes and a silky female vocal that proves to be a great track to get the measure of a speakers credentials. The A4 simply gets on with it and punches out the bass line like a night club hero to the point that I can feel my chest thumping from the sheer presence of the A4, the female vocal is portrayed beautifully with a great sense of raw realism creating the illusion that you are in the recording studio whilst this track was being created. In fact the whole frequency response seems to be beautifully judged without too much emphasis on any single part.
In short the Spendor A4 do exactly what a speaker should do, they don't take over your living space and they allow you to enjoy whatever music you are listening to with a massive smile on your face. - THOROUGHLY RECOMMENDED
