  1. Item: Osborn Eclipse Reference Tower & Osborn Subwoofer Units Location: Buderim, QLD Price: $5350 (Eclipse Ref Tower), Subwoofers $1400 each ($2400 pr) + Postage (I have the original cardboard boxes for the Eclipse as well as access to TNT) Item Condition: 9/10 (Both units have some small marks from transport, PM for photos) Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: For sale is my current collection of Osborn gear. Items have been well looked after and never abused. There is much to be said on the Eclipses Reference on the forums (they have been called the sweet spot in the range), they provide a huge soundstage with very well controlled bass, excellent dynamics and large amounts of detail. These are the current model released in October 2019 and come with over 4 years of warranty left. The current retail is $9505 + postage. For more details please see Mr Osborn's website: https://www.osbornloudspeakers.com.au/eclipse-tower The subwoofers are a somewhat custom design from Mr Osborn, which are effectively the T-12 (Focal 12" flax subwoofer) with Redgum RGSW2 plate amplifier(200wrms into 8ohms) in the Epitome Bass unit cabinet. I selected the design after Mr Osborn told me to put the T-12 I had on loan on top of a chair. Lifting the sub 2 feat off the floor worked wonders in eliminating a lot of the floor resonance however you lose some dB as there is little reinforcement so I went with the more powerful plate amplifier to accommodate the loss. The subwoofers have over 3 years of warranty left on them. T-12: https://www.osbornloudspeakers.com.au/t12 Redgum Plate Amp: https://www.redgumaudio.com/product/rgsw2-amplifier-plate/ I am selling these due to needing to downsize my equipment.

  2. Item: Ambience 1800 Reference Location: Buderim, QLD Price: $3650 Ambience 1800, Subwoofers $1400 each ($2400 pr), TOTAL Package: $5450 Item Condition: 8.5/10 (One mark on each speaker from transport shown in photo) Reason for selling: NLR (Too many speakers) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Ambience 1800 Reference: I purchased these brand new from Carlton Audio in May of 2018 as the standard edition, I then contacted Tony Moore the following month and had them upgraded to the reference edition (upgraded crossover and wiring) at a total cost of $8500. Once they are setup correctly they are incredibly revealing and easy to listen to with great height and scale. They are truly three-dimensional which is something I have never heard with a conventional speaker setup. Reason for selling is that I have another set of speakers on the way and need to clear out my current catalog. Originally my plan was to keep to them and setup and dedicated listening room but this won't be happening for some time so instead of collecting dust they need a new home. Will come with the original manual however I seem to have misplaced the binding posts as I have these bi-wired as per Tony's instructions.

T-12: https://www.osbornloudspeakers.com.au/t12 Redgum Plate Amp: https://www.redgumaudio.com/product/rgsw2-amplifier-plate/ Happy to demo for serious buyers. The total package of the ribbons and subs is quite the combination, most people that have heard Tony's ribbons would agree that they lack low bass. I tossed up the idea of upgrading to the Grand Reference but I made the decision to go with the Osborn subs and was very happy with the results. Prefer local pickup but can ship at buyers expense using the original crates. (I have access to TNT so shipping is possible at a reasonable cost) PM for any questions Specs: Ribbon Section Metal Ribbon Membrane 4 ohm Resistive (Constant) Power Handing 150 watts long term Sensitivity 89dB, 2.83 volts input @ 1 metre.

  4. Yes, its an amazing combination, somewhat emotional when the right piece of music is played! The bass drivers really appreciate the grunt from the CAT. (I must admit, I will hang on to them if i can't get the right price). The CAT has had its main board upgraded as the original board would blow as soon as it blew a tube. With that the 6550's were replaced with KT120's. I cant comment on the difference as I've only heard it with the new tubes. The subs are made by Greg Osborn. They're the epitome bass cabinet, however they have a Focal 12" flax driver powered by Redgum's RGSW2.
  5. Item: Ambience 1800 Reference Location: Buderim, QLD Price: $4900 Item Condition: 9/10 (One mark shown in photos) Reason for selling: NLR (Too many speakers) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased these brand new from Carlton Audio in May of 2018 as the standard edition, I then contacted Tony Moore the following month and had them upgraded to the reference edition (upgraded crossover and wiring) at a total cost of $8500. When positioned correctly they are incredibly revealing and smooth to the point you feel like you're in the studio. They are truly three-dimensional which is something I have never heard with a conventional cone driver. I am selling these due to purchasing new speakers that work better in my new lounge room. Originally my plan was to keep to them and setup and dedicated listening room but this won't be happening for some time so instead of collecting dust they need a new home.
