Spectral 40th
 
These look really nice! Will be interesting how they sound.

It looks to be assembled in the last generation of the Electra series cabinet. It would be more intriguing if they'd included a beryllium tweeter.

They look pretty nice, went with the retro look to complement the model from the 1990s. Looks a little like a PSB speaker but I like it.

Anyone ever buy a pair of these? Curious how they sound.

Nice. I wonder where they sit in focal offering. I would guess between the aria and kanta.

They have the same look of the «*old*» Electra 1028be.
Personally I prefer the Electra.

Yeah me too. I am planning to buy a pair of 1028 Be in Carrara white, if I can find a pair.

In past experience with speakers with front port i didn’t like being blown at with bass heavy music. In the case of the spectral, they would blow over one’s ankles an feet :D

The front port should allow closer placement to the rear wall but I doubt if the overall sound quality is equal to the Electra 1028be. The beryllium tweeter was a real game changer for the Electra line.
