I had the Spendor SP100. I bought a demo pair and enjoyed them greatly most of the time. If I didn't have a thing for studio crafted pop they would have been perfect - easy to get them to sound good but they always improved with their kinds of recordings as the gear improved. Great midrange kind of a hokey bass. Sold them quickly for about 75% of what I paid for them 15 years later. When I sold my 2A3 tube amps (18 watts) I demoed them using the SP100s instead of the Avatars because the amps couldn't control the bass on the 94 db Avatars. When the guy came over he brought couple of records and when I saw Ella Fitzgerald I knew that he was taking the amp with him.
The Avatars aren't perfect either and I'm sure they could really sing with a well selected amplifier but I would sell them before trying to get the most out of them. They work fine enough in the system I'm using them in. And yes if I move on from them it will be with a 2 way speaker.
