FS/EOI: GENESIS II TOWER SPEAKERS (PERTH)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Item: Genesis II Tower Speakers

Location: Perth, WA

Price: $25,000 negotiable

Item Condition: Very Good to excellent

Reason for selling: Time to clear up the 'Man Cave'

Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, bank transfer

Extra Info:

 

The Genesis II was one of the best speakers that Genesis has ever built back in the days and needs no introduction. It is a system consisting of 4 free standing speaker towers. The mid-range and tweeters are housed in a stand alone cabinet that are over six feet tall, approximately 3 feet wide and fitted with twelve tweeter drivers and a 48-inch long ribbon mid-range. The bass section is housed in two seperate towers that contains four 12 inch bass drivers in each tower. All drivers and cabinets are in excellent to mint condition. The bass tower speakers are driven separately by a servo-bass Genesis amplifier.

 

I am advertising the system on behalf of a friend, who is also a SNA member. He has owned this system since new. He is keen to sell them as he is running out of space in his ‘Man Cave’, which you can see from a number of the photos below with the actual speakers. The Man Cave looks like photos from Michael Framer’s ‘Den’ in one of his You Tube clips.

 

He is more than happy for serious and genuine buyers to audition the system first before buying. Buyers will be fully responsible for the packing and freighting/transporting the speakers to their destination using their own trusted courier. Price is highly negotiable within reasons so it may be worth for you to take a trip to Perth if you are an interstate buyer who would like to own one of the best speaker system in the world and enjoy beautiful Perth at while you are here. Serious and genuine buyers please PM me.

 

Specifications:

Mid-range and Tweeter cabinets:

Tweeters (1" circular ribbon) in the front and back, and the mid (48" ribbon) which works in a 'dipole' arrangement.

 

Bass/woofer cabinets:

2 X tower cabinets with each tower equipped with 4 x 12" active servo woofers controlled by Genesis active servo amp. Woofers would go down to 20Hz with less than 1% distortion, which is a remarkable feat.

 

Woofer amplifier:

The servo-bass woofer amplifier is connected to the woofer towers by custom made Audio Quest cables which will be included as part of this sale.

The cabinets are made of Brazilian Rosewood.

‘Man Cave’

I wonder what speakers are in the main room if these are the man cave speakers?

Everything hifi is kept in the man cave hence the need to perform some 'Marie Kondo' with the sale of the Genesis.

These are incredibly good speakers that leaves no stone unturned if you really want the very best in high end. He drives them with a high quality tube power amp. This is an  incredibly great sounding speaker system.

Depending on how you like to position your speaker to your listening position I.e. near field or far, the size of the room might be irrelevant. After having said this, I think an average sized room is probably better. It will give it adequate room to ‘breath’.
