The SC-30 is a "bookshelf' type speaker offering exceptional levels of price vs. performance. Made possible by recent advances in driver technology, it incorporates features uncommon in its price range. Although housed in a conventional rectangular enclosure, the SC-30 gives near phase-aligned performance, and has the same neutrality, transparency, and spectacular imaging and sounstaging performance that is the hallmark of Spica products.
The Sensible Sound review describes the SC-30 as the loudspeaker that audiophiles will recommend to their friends who don't want to spend a great deal of money. Stereophile seemed to agree, naming Spica's SC30 as the 1992 budget product of the year.
