I believe both companies offer return privileges, so you could buy both and see which you prefer.

I had the Goertz for a while MI2 Veracity and thought they were great with my Spendors initially. After living with them for about 6 months, the high end which I always thought was superlative, they began to "get on my nerves" a bit.
Very good bass response though.
The Spendors are a little laid back and I'm not familiar with our speakers but if they are forward in any sense and the bass is something you already like, the Goertz might not be the best choice.
I haven't heard the Grover Huffman....sorry.
I've owned several pairs of goertz mi-1 and 2 and now use huffman. The comments about oscillation with goertz are correct. I had real problems with one amp.
That said, the huffman zx are superior across the board, in my experience. More transparent and dynamic, and with a smoother, better defined top end. YMMV, of course.
