Spendor D7.2 Floorstanding Speakers
The D7.2 is easy to drive, truly compatible with valve amplifiers, and also genuinely efficient. Undemanding of placement, it has fine stereo and extended powerful bass, sounds upbeat and well balanced, and will drive larger rooms as required. And the build and finish is first rate: what more can one ask?

Spendor LPZ (Linear Pressure Zone) tweeter
The goal of every tweeter designer is to achieve linear acoustic output across a wide frequency range; in practice this is extremely difficult. Spendor’s approach to this age-old challenge is radical, and it works. The Spendor LPZ tweeter is built around a stainless steel front plate that forms a damped acoustic chamber directly in from of a lightweight woven polyamide diaphragm. The front plate incorporates phase correcting micro foil to equalize sound wave path lengths across the diaphragm surface; simultaneously it generated a symmetrical pressure environment on both faces of the tweeter diaphragm so the tweeter operates in a balanced linear mode. The D7 looks as good as it sounds. Two new premium finishes perfectly complement today’s on-trend interiors. Spendor Dark, a diamond polished gloss lacquer of a dark natural wood, for an alluring modern look. Spendor White, a silky smooth pure white lacquer, for a distinctive contemporary look. Standard finishes are light oak, dark walnut, cherry, and black ash. The plinth is satin black lacquer to complement all finishes.
Imagine focusing an ultra-high quality camera lens until you see a bright, clear image. That’s the effect of LPZ technology. Our sequential geometry micro-foil operates as an acoustic lens. The result is perfect focus, uninhibited sound transmission and a very wide listening window. The front plate also provides excellent mechanical protection for the delicate tweeter dome and a smart modern appearance.
Spendor 18cm drive units developed for D7.2
The D7.2 mid-bass drive unit has an advanced EP77 polymer cone for superb clarity and vanishingly low colouration. The D7.2 low frequency drive unit has an ultra-rigid two part bonded Kevlar composite cone assembly for accurate powerful low frequency response. Both drivers feature cast magnesium alloy chassis, high efficiency motor systems, optimized electro-dynamic damping, and excellent thermal dissipation for wide dynamic range. A new polymer surround reduces driver ‘break-in’ time significantly due to the very stable molecular composition of the material.
Fifth generation Spendor Linear flow port technology
The benefits of Spendor Linear Flow port technology have been well proven in the Spendor A-line. The deliver deep articulate bass with natural timing, even in small rooms or close to a wall. Our new fifth generation Spendor Linear flow port incorporates and aerodynamically profiled central baffle (like an aircraft wing) to create a tapered twin-venturi port. Air at the port extremities is decelerated and there is a further reduction in air velocity in the large tapered area at the cabinet base. The result is evenly balanced acoustic pressure and airflow along the whole length of the port. Rapidly decreasing air velocity at the port extremities creates an air-curtain effect to eliminate port noise and spurious mid-band radiation.
Conventional loudspeakers incorporate low frequency enclosure damping. The damping material stores energy. As the stored energy is released it is no longer in-time with the music and it makes sound unnaturally heavy and slow. The sound path, within the D7 cabinet, from the bass drivers to the listening room, requires no low frequency damping. The Spendor D7 is entirely free from energy storage effects and the advantage is clearly audible; music sounds naturally fast, agile, and coherent.
High quality terminals are recessed within the port aperture to hide plug and cable connections for neat appearance.
Spendor Dynamic cabinet damping
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 introduces unacceptable blurring and slowing of the sound. Spendor’s solution is asymmetric aperture bracing of the cabinet to disperse internal waves. Dynamic Damping with 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 silent, rigid cabinet and naturally fast engaging sound.
90 dB efficiency and an easy to drive 8-Ohm load ensure complete compatibility with a wider range of amplifiers and cables. With substantial power handling the D7’s can play very loud without sounding compressed. At low replay levels the sound is always clear and transparent.
