C4 Platinum

Listen with Confidence

New materials, techniques and the application of new acoustic theories means ‘great’ just got greater

They stand 1.73m tall. They have two 28m Esotar2 tweeters with our own precision coating. They use two 15cm midrange drivers and two 20cm woofers – all made from our very own Magnesium Silicate Polymer material. And their ultra-lightweight aluminium voice-coils accompany non-magnetic Kapton formers, high-quality internal wiring and a sophisticated first-order crossover.

The C4s produce utterly captivating sound – from incredibly deep, controlled bass to clear, smooth, detailed highs.

What’s Dynaudio Directivity Control?

Much like motor-racing technology ends up in your family car, we’ve taken the expertise we’ve gained from decades of building professional monitors for major recording studios and applied it to home audio.

It’s all about compensating for floors and ceilings – which reflect the sound coming from your loudspeakers and introduce distortions and time delays. It’s those effects that colour the sound you hear – and while a splash of colour is lovely on the wall, you don’t want it in your music.

We utilised Dynaudio Directivity Control (DDC) in the Confidence Platinum C4 and C2 to minimise those unwanted distortions. The vertical symmetrical driver array and sophisticated crossover are designed to reduce the energy dispersed to floors and ceilings by up to 75%. That means more of it comes directly to you in your seat, and makes the speakers far less dependent on the room they’re in.

It isn’t just a driver arrangement, though: every part of the signal chain is optimised for the technology. Each tweeter complements each woofer in frequency response and phase relationship. Each crossover component is precisely selected for the job. And on the floorstanding speakers in the Confidence Platinum range, we make sure each set of drivers and crossover parts is precisely matched to the other – so they work in tandem.

RT would never do that.... 😲

 

But I do have to say the box work DOES inspire a degree of confidence in the build quality of the contents (if we could see them..)

      Item: German Physiks Limited 11 Speakers featuring the fabulous DDD omnidirectional transducer
      Location: Melbourne
      Price: $12K (RRP was about $18K) with donation to SNA on sale
      Item Condition: Mint with all original packaging for safe transport at buyer's expense, accessories, manual and paperwork. Purchased new from the importer
      Reason for selling: Too many speakers and not enough money
      Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal
      Extra Info: German designer Peter Dicks evolved the "DDD" (Dicks Dipole Driver) from the legendary Walsh driver featured in Ohm F speakers from the US. I owned a pair many years ago and still remember how it's soundstage was so much more lifelike than anything else I'd heard before. Recognising the immense potential of the Walsh driver while acknowledging some of its flaws, Dicks managed to solve any remaining problems to produce a drive unit that is technically superior to any other in the world! A big statement, but you might want to read the Dick Olsher 2014 review in The Absolute Sound to understand why. A couple of reasons in simple terms relate to the total phase coherency of a single 360 degree transducer radiating out of its convex carbon fibre surface with a crossover frequency of 200 Hz, well below the critical midrange area. Cone breakup, directionality and phase anomalies make it almost impossible for a conventional design to compete with the spatial properties of these speakers. The listening sweet spot is also very much larger than usual. Combined with the speaker's discreet and elegant styling, the Limited 11 has massive "WAF" factor.
       
      The "Limited 11" was German Physiks' experiment in producing a speaker at a much lower price than earlier models, without sacrificing performance. The "Limited" run of only 100 pairs worldwide was so successful that they decided to continue EXACTLY THE SAME DESIGN, but with 4 alternative finishes instead of just the 1 in light grey. They call this model the "Unlimited MK II" which is currently available with RRP of about $20K. Because technical issues mean that the DDD driver cannot be upscaled, the same driver is employed in all models from cheapest to dearest, the "Gaudi" at well over $300K. This makes the potential listening experience from their Limited or Unlimited models stunningly affordable for the serious audiophile.
       
      The Limited (or Unlimited) model features a single carbon fibre DDD driver and 8" woofer in a sealed cabinet with acoustic vinyl finish and other resonance-suppression internal measures including heavy MDF reinforced panels, "Hawaphon" damping and high density felt. Bass from this moderately sized cabinet is surprisingly extended, defined and tight. I prefer the spike option on a carpeted floor, while rubber feet are supplied for use on hard surfaces.
      It is not hard to drive, with an efficiency of 88dB. Impedance never drops below 4 ohms, making it suitable for some valve amps as  well.
       
      The DDD driver covers frequencies from 200Hz to 24KHz and avoids the need for a midrange crossover point, which together with its naturally low distortion, exceptional transparency and fast transients reproduces the fine detail you expect to hear in a live performance. Its 360 degree phase coherency results in a huge but focussed 3 dimensional image that immerses listeners in the performance and involves them emotionally. I don't know how I'm going to be able to let these speakers go, as nothing else that I've heard can sound like them! Maybe I'll list my beloved Wilson Benesch ACT 60LEs as well and keep what doesn't sell first.

      Item: Canon EOS 6d full frame SLR
      Location: Castlemaine VIC
      Price: $650  $600
      Item Condition: Excellent
      Reason for selling: Upgrade
      Payment Method: Cash - pickup, EFT Osko, Paypal
      Extra Info:
      Selling my second body now that I've bought an EOS R.
      Note, this is not the mark II, it's the original 20.1 megapixel version. There's really not much in it between the image quality I get from this camera and the EOS R - the 6d is still a very good low light camera.
      The camera is is excellent working condition, well looked after, with a few minor marks.
      It comes with a Meike brand battery grip, which is just as good as the genuine one and has worked flawlessly.
      All the accessories that come in the box are included - body cap, battery, charger, USB and AV cables, software CD, manual. Note, the box is a 'lens kit' box - I bought the camera only. They're often sold this way and the kit lens is separated.
      Shutter count: 20775.
      Pickup can be arranged in Melb - I'll be visiting there soon.

      Location: Castlemaine VIC
      Price: $440
      Item Condition: Excellent
      Reason for selling: I have a 100-400mm zoom and can't justify/carry both.

      Extra Info:
      This is the original version of the lens with the retractable hood. It's the same optically and mechanically as the current version (with detachable hood).
      These don't come up for sale very often - one sold recently on ebay for $600.
      Comes with front and rear caps.
      Pickup can be arranged in Melb - I'll be visiting there soon.

      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 Subwoofer in Epitome Bass Cabinet:
      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/
       
      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)
