    I had a pair of SP1/2 for a short while.
    Beautiful tonality, very natural - but dynamically they were a good cure for insomnia as far as I was concerned.

    I'm not surprised they've sold so quickly because the price was very very low especially bearing in mind the apparent superb cosmetic condition.What a bargain!
    The only proviso I would have is the issue of the ferrofluid in the tweeter bearing in mind the age and the possible stiffening of the roll surround in the bass/mid unit affecting bottom end performance again due to age which appears can be an issue with some older Spendors. I have the much newer SP2/3r2 but I would have certainly considered the older version if it hadn't been for the aforementioned possible performance issues.
