and preferred the Spendor by a large margin. The Quad has a slightly fuller sound with more bass, but the S3/5 beat the Quad in every other way: detail, soundstage (depth and width), life, timing and micro dynamics. Listened to the Spendors and Quad together with a friend on a Linn Classik and a Jolida 302b.
My friend kep the Quads since he has a fairly large room, but we both preferred the S3/5 for the smaller rooms and in the nearfield.
The Spendors are a little out of your budget, but they are great speakers for a little more.
