The Spendor A7 is not just a bigger A4. It's a better loudspeaker too. It uses the dynamic damping system from Spendor's award-winning D Line as well as a twin-venture port developed specifically for this model. In addition, the A7 cabinet size is perfectly optimized for the main drive unit. As a result the A7 delivers a more open and richer sound with a smoother sweeter mid-range and faster deeper bass.
At the heart of the A7 is a Spendor 7" bass-mid drive unit which incorporates key materials developed for Spendor's flagship D7 loudspeaker. It features an EP77 polymer cone and new surround and suspension materials with outstanding thermal and mechanical stability. This new drive unit gives the A7 exceptional dynamic ability with extremely good low-level linearity.
A completely re-engineered crossover brings significantly improved driver integration and a vivid, dynamic, but always natural, sound. The crossover network has precision wound high-linearity tapped inductors which avoid distortion, and which allow the very fine tuning of frequency and phase response, which is essential to achieve a coherent balanced sound.
The new A7 retains the well-proven 4th generation Spendor linear-flow port, which gives the A7 an unrivalled ability to deliver deep articulate bass in almost any listening room. It allows great flexibility when positioning the loudspeakers close to walls, furniture or in smaller rooms.
A 22mm wide-surround tweeter combines the extended frequency response of a small diaphragm with the low frequency characteristics of a larger diaphrgam to give stable low distortion response over a very wide frequency range. The unique diaphragm profile delivers a smooth extended high frequency response over a wide listening area.
Timing is fundamental to the musical experience. In conventional loudspeakers rigid high density cabinet panels are mass-damped to reduce cabinet-talk. Spurious energy is stored and released slowly. This creates unacceptable blurring and slowing of the sound. Spendor’s solution is Dynamic Damping. Small low mass constrained polymer dampers at key energy interface points instantly convert any spurious energy in the cabinet into inaudible heat. The result is a naturally fast engaging and open sound.
Internal cables are high-grade silver plated pure copper with halogen free dielectric. High linearity audio grade capacitors and an easy to drive 8ohm load ensure uncompromised performance and complete compatibility with all good amplifiers and cables.

Through every amplifier, with every recording, the A7 wowed me with its remarkably natural reproduction skills. Here was a superbly tactile, meaty, and immersive sound. Disc after disc, music flowed with ease and aplomb from the A7s lovely cabinets. The Spendor A7s played crisply and cleanly, with a neutral midrange and revealing, powerful bass.

Refined yet entertaining, the A7s continue Spendor’s knack for combining stunning precision, clarity and subtlety with hugely enjoyable dynamics and rhythm. These elegant Spendor A7s should make their way to the top of your list.

An addictively transparent, engaging, rhythmically sussed and endlessly enjoyable loudspeaker. One of the most talented floorstanders we’ve reviewed at this price point.
