** This Ad is Marked as SOLD by seller and cannot be responded to. **

This sale is for a pair of Spendor BCIII loudspeakers, from the 70's.
These are 4-way units and are generally rated as superb speakers for classical or more detailed music. In other words, they are not ideal for rock! They have been used with a large variety of amplifiers, including Quad II, Quad 303, Quad 45, Pass Aleph 5, Leach, Accuphase, and more recently nCore (Class D amps.....highly recommended).
The cabinets are generally in very good/good condition. There are some small dints on top of one and a missing strip of wood on the (detachable) panel as seen in the right-hand speaker.
All the units are original Spendor (see unit list and specification below). One bass unit has clearly had some repair work done to the surround but is none the worse for that. All the units are functioning without problems.
The detachable front panels are in good condition, with no fraying cloth or broken plastic connectors.
The loudspeakers are set for bi-wiring...which is optional. The original connectors have been replaced with professional Speakon connectors. I am selling the speakers with appropriate connecting cables and connectors.
These are very heavy speakers and they should be positioned on stands for best listening. Collection and audition is strongly recommended.

A review from HiFi News is at http://www.hifinews.co.uk/news/article/spendor-bc-iii--vintage/20180
The final sentence of the review is "the BC III still sounds effortless and revealing, voices and instruments appearing believably in a natural and inviting soundstage. An enduringly well-balanced classic. "
