Can you expand anymore? How do the signatures compair to the regular 805's? May I ask what you payed for them?

I just stole a used pair of Spendor 3/1P and find the difference in musicality and overall "ease" pretty convincing...and for half the price!
I understand the bass-shy smaller 3/5 are even MORE neutral!
I have just returned from a month in Scotland, where I visited about a dozen shoppes. No matter how many B&W, Epos, KEF, Mission, etc. monitors we listened to, EVERY dealer eventually suggested the Spendors as their personal musically-satisfying choice. Sure the 600 series are serious "bang-for-the-pound", so the Spendors seem a bit pricey, but they ALL preferred the 'lil 3/5 to the Nautilus
805, especially at 1/3 the price!
So I bought the next larger S3/1P used for $800 and am profoundly impressed! I'd seriously suggest that anyone needing great small monitors check out these two Spendors.
I understand their new floorstanding line is even higher value: look at the new 2-way for only $1500 list! Nice to see a small Brit classic name flourishing against the big B&W.
