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. 

 

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.

 

Happy to demo for serious buyers.

 

Prefer local pickup but can ship at buyers expense. (I have the original crates)

Wow, is that a CAT JL2 driving them? 

 

These speakers will tell you everything about the character of your amplifier. They demand an amplifier with plenty of current and as Alltheambience says create an absolutely fantastic sweet, detailed and dynamic soundscape with depth, width and focus when correctly positioned. They are hugely underrated Australian speakers and these would represent 30+ years of ongoing development by Tony Moore. Fabulous speakers.

Oh my, what a combination!

 

I have been searching for the perfect partner for my Ambience Reference 1600’s, 96 dB version. (See “Rocking the Granny Flat”.) Now that would do it, 16 x 6550’s!!! Can only imagine the results of that match. 

What are the subs you are running?

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.

      Item Condition: Very good Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Ipswich State: Queensland Payment Method: Money Reason for selling: NLR Further information: 
       
      A few marks on the speakers that I have tried to show in the photos with the flash on. Not in 100% mint condition but only the fussiest would be dissuaded. These are seriously good speakers, the whole Silver series has blown my mind and really put Monitor Audio on my radar. These would be epic in a beginners or budget system and will not bottleneck source/amplification upgrades as you progress higher.
       
      Comes with factory packaging, manuals, grilles, port plugs etc.

      A few marks on the speakers that aren't clearly discernible by the photos, nothing major at all. Local pick up only as I want the prospective buyer to have a listen and look before purchase.
       
      These are the later variant of the Equinox using the updated drivers. No factory packaging.
