CONDITION:  99.9% NEW (I’m the original owner)

 

Please be careful not to mix these up with other Focus branded speakers with similar naming.

 

Purchased in 2014 from Pymble Hi-Fi.

 

The current RRP is $23,000 (with the same Premium Rosewood finish)

The above link will also tell you the basic specs of the speakers.

 

I believe the current model (mine are one iteration behind) has some very minor updates to the tweeter, but for all intents and purposes, they are identical, and I doubt anyone could tell the sound difference.

 

The Focus SE can be driven by virtually any level of Amplifier, due to their high Sensitivity of 95dB.

But absolutely definitely appreciate modern High Powered/High Current amps, where it can handle very low Ohm impedance numbers.

 

4x12” woofers.  Think of it like having 4 subwoofers.  You can also power them separately from the mids and tweeters.

Although, by absolutely no means does that mean you are overpowered by bass.  Not at all.

 

MEANINGFUL Frequency response down to 20Hz, and I’ve validated this simply using a frequency tone app on my iPhone. It was fascinating to see how different parts of the house vibrated to different frequencies.

You can read a bit more on the speaker frequency characteristics here:

https://hometheaterhifi.com/reviews/speaker/floor-standing/legacy-focus-se-floor-standing-speakers/

 

The speakers will definitely benefit from the right room design. Initially purchased to be used in full size dedicated Home Theatre room, where they sounded amazing, I now have them located in a standard lounge/dining area, sitting on a tiled floor, where they lose some of their impact. Although probably still perform better than the vast majority of speakers on the market.

 

The home website for these speakers are here (along with a ton of links to reviews):

https://www.legacyaudio.com/products/view/focus-se/

 

The speakers are in 99.9% perfect condition and work perfectly. Not a mark on them that I am aware of.

 

SPIKES : Also included are a full set of high quality spikes for both speakers (see photos).

 

While most people would classify these as large speakers, they fit perfectly fine in my standard lounge area. 

 

I’ve also posted a photo of the serial number, which I believe, allows GENUINE buyers to confirm with Legacy Audio, the exact status of the model and its specs.

      I've owned this pair of Tannoys for about 3 years. These have the DC386 drivers/crossovers, also known as Arden's mkII or 3828, built into beautifully crafted Arundel cabinets with the cork finished front baffle.
      The cabinets have a square cross section which achieves the same volume as the original Arden mki including the bass reflex port, I know this as I measured both for comparison purposes.
      The roll surrounds were replaced by Tom Manning from SpeakerBits in 2018 with the correct, genuine surrounds as can be seen from the pictures, you won't have to worry about it for a long time. 
      The finish of the cabinets were a bit dull when I got them so I have cleaned them up with 0000 steel wool and lightly sanded before applying Howards Restor-a-Finish which really brought out the stunning book matched timber veneer finish. Lastly the veneered cabinets were treated with Howard's Feed-n-Wax treatment. 
       
      For those considering these speakers, they are a lot more space friendly and less intrusive than the Arden cabinets due to their square footprint with no compromises in their classic big Tannoy dual concentric sound.
       
      Power handling: 10-200 Watts @ 8 Ohms
      Size: 49 x 49 x 100cm (W x D x H)
      Weight: 46kg each approx.

       Reluctantly for sale in my Aesthetix Janus (Signature) valve preamp Janus  
       
      A bit of history. I purchased this from an SNA'r in QLD a few years back and was pretty happy with the sound (first valve pre I have owned) anyway sometime later it failed. I took off the lid and discovered what looked like home made mods to the circuit (an add on board with a few electronics fitted) So I took pictures and emailed them to Aesthetix asking if they were factory modifications. The answer of course, was no!
       
      I was directed to contact absolute hi end who were the agents. So the result was the unit being shipped back to the USA to Aesthetix for a repair quote. Basically the cost to carry out repairs to bring the unit back to the standard level Janus made the amp not worth repairing.
      I was given the option of upgrading it to the Signature (mid level of the model range) for around $4K AUD + freight + the cost of a new genuine shipping box. After a lot of deliberation I decided to have the upgrade done which replaced most of the internal components and a new set of valves. (I have a copy of the receipt for the upgrade and most likely can get all the details from Aesthetix, their support is top notch) 
       
      The amp has preformed flawlessly since it's return 3 years ago and has driven both Ayre MX-R mono blocks and until last week my Krell FPB600 power amp (now sold) 
       
      I am in the process of reducing my collection of equipment to have just one system based on a good integrated amp / dac / turntable / streamer.  I would love to keep the Janus in the off chance that I get another power amp in the future but as that is pretty unlikely, it is best it finds a new home. The one issue is the remote is crappy, it works but is fussy about where you aim it at the amp, I have put up with it but it could do with replacing or using a harmony ect. 
       
      What I found really nice about using a valve pre it adds a certain sweetness to the system when using solid state amps. (I have not owned tube power amps) There are one or two spare sets of tubes (all standard) and you can tube roll these to some amps effect. (I have a link to capacitor upgrades) 
       
      I have shown the couple of imperfections on the panel and the case in the photos for reference.
       
      I can arrange shipping from Albury or if you are in Melbourne I will be dropping off gear this Thursday (7th) so I could deliver it (post payment) 
       
      Plenty of reviews on the net. I have no idea what the phono stage sounds like as I have a seperate phono amp and play about one record a year (too much fuss!)
