I owned the SP100's and extensively auditioned the 3.8's. The SP 100 is a fantastic speaker very much in the BBC monitor tradition. The 3.8's have a more immediate and full bodied presentation while the Spendor's tend to lay back. If you are thinking of the SP100 I'd suggest you consider the Harbeth Monitor 40 which is considerably better--higher resolution, more transparent, faster and more immediate--kinda like the best of what the 3.8 and SP100 have to offer. In any case all are really good designs that will give you a very musical and enjoyable system.
