I am currently on the verge of purchasing a pair of spendor A7s after demoing at my local dealer.
My issue is, i have now spotted a pair of D7s brand new for the same price as the A7s.
I have not demoed the D7s and would like some info on them.
Are the D7s the superior speaker compared to the newer A7s?
Do the D7s have the same sound characteristics as the A7s?
Has anyone had the chance to compare these two directly?
What should i go for?

If you can give them enough room to breathe then it's a no brainer. Allow about 1m from back wall.
So go with the older D7s, they are not the D7.2.?
Even though the A7s are newer with the new flow port?
I did demo the A7s and loved them, would I get more of the same with the D7?

As you know from my previous posts I have been auditioning many floorstanders over the last few months and the spendors on first audition just blew me away.
Seeing the older D7s at the same price has now confused what appeared to be a foregone conclusion for me

I've only heard D7 and from conversations with owner they need a little bit more than 2 feet from back to sound their best. I'd go with your ears and not doubt yourself. Not really heard Spendors that I didn't like.

I have decided to take a leap and gone ahead with the purchase of the D7s.
Many reviews I have read have suggested they are the superior option of the two.
I hope, without my demoing them, they are.
Loved the sound from the A7s
Hope I am not making a big mistake
