Further information:

Regretful sale of my amazing set of Ascension speakers made right here in Australia by Edward from Adelaide speakers. These were purchased in Feb this year and I have been very happy and satisfied with these set. I am forced to sale these and downgrade my HT setup due to unexpected need for additional fund.


Very well made and amazing value for the price. I have been very happy with them since I got these speakers. These are the only speakers that put an end to my upgraditis for speakers with their really clean highs and amazing tight bass, with this speakers I have not had the need to have my subwoofer on, and at times I did prefer to listen to without the sub as they produce really clean deep bass down to 28hz.


These are in excellent condition, purchased in Feb 2020 and are about 9 months old.


I had been running these speakers in my HT room with QED XT40 Speaker cables which are also included in this sale and price. 


The white version currently pictured on Edward's website are these same speakers.



Included in this sale is;

1 x Pair of Ascension Summoner Phase III 863SQTL Transmission line floorstanding speakers

1 x Ascension Trio Phase III 253SQ Centre speaker

1 x Pair of QED XT40 speaker cable with Factory terminated banana plugs in 3m length for main L + R Speakers

1 x QED XT40 speaker cable with self terminated Origin banana plugs in 2m length for Centre speaker



- Summoner 863SQTL 3-way transmission line hybrid floor speakers, 1020h x 240w x 310d in white non- veneer finish, 8 ohms, 8” SB Acoustics bass driver, SB Acoustics 5” midrange, smooth 25mm soft dome wave guide tweeter, high order series crossover.

Cabinet: 1020h x 240w x 315d Transmission Line loading
Power Handling: 140 wrms
Nominal Impedance: 8 ohms
Frequency Response: 28 -- 30,000 Hertz +/-2dB
Sensitivity: 91 dB 1w/1m



- Trio 253SQ centre channel, 800w x 160h x 310d in same white finish as above, 8 ohms, SB Acoustics
5.5” bass x 2, 4” midrange x 2, smooth 25mm soft dome wave guide tweeter, and high order series crossover.

Cabinet: 800w x 160h x 315d bass reflex 24 litres
Power Handling: 160 wrms (@ 60Hz plus)
Nominal Impedance: 8 ohms
Frequency Response: 53 -- 30,000 Hertz +/-2dB
Sensitivity: 91dB 1w/1m



Please note, centre speaker has imperfection in one of the corner as pictured. It looks lot worse in the photo than it is and with the grill on it is not visible. Also, the floorstanders originally came with Gold spikes with 3M stickers, which I have removed and had been using IsoAcoustics ISO PUCKs as footers (ISO PUCKs are not included in this sale). I will include the gold spikes and shoes but know that you will need a double sided round tape to put these on. 


These speakers originally cost me around $2000 when purchased new from Edward. So, for the price of only the floorstander speakers you are also getting a matching centre speakers and QED XT40 speaker cables which in self are additional $600 and in new condition. Invoice is provided with this sale.


Prefer to sale as a lot and local pickup only from Oran Park NSW 2570.

Bargain alert here. Someone is going to a very happy camper if santa gets these for them. Good luck with the sale, I doubt you'll need it. 

 100% agreed.    I recently bough a tweaked set of slight larger Summoners (9.5" upgraded bass and upgraded Satori treble, + birds-eye maple veneer) and I can report that are TRULY impressive.       For the price, pretty much impossible to beat.


So this set with added center and cables.....HYPER-bargain!!      :)

I have listened to the actual speaker units that are being offered for sale and can vouch for the superb sound quality and dynamics.  They are excellent right through the frequency range.  I’d buy them but Edward is making 7 custom units for me.

      Item Condition: Excellent (as new) Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Traralgon State: VIC Payment Method: Direct deposit, PayPal Reason for selling: Considering upgrade Further information: Putting out an initial EOI for these as I'm considering an upgrade that has been unexpectedly offered to me.  These were purchase new by me approx. 12 months ago from a Melbourne retailer.  They are in 'as new' condition and look (and sound) stunning in gloss black.  I do not have the original boxes so pick up would be required or shipping (and packing) arranged at buyers expense.  The R11's and R2C center currently retail for $12,190 together so the almost 40% discounted asking price will not be negotiable.
      Spec can be found on KEF website at the following links -

      R2C - https://ap.kef.com/products/r2c

      SB Acoustic ARA Bookshelf Speakers in excellent condition – I bought this stand mount speakers from SNA’er last October 2020.  The pair is in white high gloss with genuine SB Acoustic crossovers and the famous Satori Ring Radiator Tweeter which been used by high end speakers manufacturers such as the Von Schweikert and Hulgich Audio to name a few. The mid woofer also uses is SB Acoustic ARA papyrus reed cone which is also found in the Wilson Audio Sasha.
      These speakers are only available in kit form in Australia and sell for $xxxx from Wagner Online, if these are sold ready made expect to pay twice or thrice the price. The ARA bookshelf speakers are also very similar to the Hulgich Audio NINA (same drivers but different cabinet) which is more than triple the price that I’am asking.
       SB Acoustic drivers were designed in Denmark by ex Scan-Speak engineers.
      DRIVERS used:
      SATORI TW29R (29mm soft ring dome) 6.5inch SATORI MW16P-4 mid woofer.
      Frequency Response: 45-25000Hz /-3dB
      Sensitivity: 87dB
      Impedance: 4ohm
      Recommended amplifier: 50 to 150 watt
       2 Way Bass Reflex Port tuned to 36.5Hz
       Facets on top of the paired cabinets for reduced high frequency diffraction
      Inclined baffle for correct time alignment of drivers
      Wedge shaped inner rear walls behind mid woofer for reduced direct reflection.
      Internal bracing to reduce and distribute vibrations, hence lower sound colouration.
       Approx. 391mm high x 340mm deep 190mm wide ( These are quite large for stand mount speakers)
      Note: There is a small hole in one of the tweeter cloth covers but will provide spare cloth to fix this.

      If you haven't heard about the NAD M51, you must have been hiding under a rock. Widely reviewed and praised, with many claiming it punches far above its price point in terms of sound quality and features. Has pre-amp capability and HDMI connectivity so can tie numerous components together. Clean, crisp sound with plenty of warmth, energy and life. Easily the best DAC I've owned to date. Selling because I have moved to KEF LS50 Wireless speakers and no longer need a DAC.
      Praise for the NAD M51 from Stereophile
      "The M51 projected a rich, lovely sound that wasn't too forgiving, which was to its credit. I like to hear a recording's technical warts, if any."
      "I prefer DACs that reveal as much as possible about what was captured on the tape or in the digits, and couldn't care less about adding a rose-colored tint to dodgy digital sound. In this regard, the NAD M51 succeeds with a wonderfully detailed and revealing sound best described as honest, with a friendly smile. And it was a pleasure to listen to. "

      The Emit Series - True Dynaudio sound quality and high-end's highest value.
      The new Dynaudio Emit series is the latest model range from Dynaudio, and was conceived as an entry-level high-end loudspeaker series that incorporates an extraordinary level of technical innovation and performance capabilities in an attractive package that is suitable to most any level of amplification. The high-value Emit models are equally conducive to Hi-Fi or home theater system applications, and the speakers are relatively easy to drive and not at all difficult to position. Comprised of loudspeakers with relatively modest price points but exceptional performance capabilities, the Emit models realise a level of performance and value that is without peer in their respective price class.
      Advanced Dynaudio driver technologies coupled with Dynaudio’s renowned Danish craftsmanship highlight the new Emit series. As is typical of Dynaudio, each Emit model features drivers designed solely for the purpose of optimised performance within the constraints of the model’s particular application, thereby enabling a level of performance that is unrivalled in its category. From an aesthetic standpoint, the Emit models exhibit simply elegant Danish design and exceptional Dynaudio build quality, while sonically they deliver incredible dynamics, extremely high levels of transparency and detail, and very powerful bass extension. Imaging and sound-staging capabilities are also exceptional, and the sonic cohesion between the various models in the series ensures perfectly homogenous multi-channel system integration.
      Emit M20 Bookshelf speakers
      The Emit, with its classic compact loudspeaker proportions, is ideally suited for small to medium sized rooms and can easily be placed on a bookshelf or on a small stand - even when the space is limited.
      The Emit M20 is a traditional bookshelf loudspeaker model featuring innovative Dynaudio technologies and most impressive performance capabilities. 
      The Dynaudio Emit M20 continues the long established Dynaudio tradition of exceptional compact loudspeaker models. Boasting the neutrality, transparency, detail, and dynamics afforded by renowned Dynaudio technologies such as high performance soft dome tweeters, MPS (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) mid/bass drivers, and large diameter lightweight aluminium voice coils, the M20 delivers serious performance at a price that exhibits serious value. The Dynaudio Emit M20 driver compliment is comprised of a 28mm diameter soft dome tweeter and a 17cm diameter MSP mid/bass driver, which are mated to a 1st order crossover featuring high-quality components throughout.

Dynamics are exceptional, and the combination of its precisely tuned bass reflex enclosure and the incredible performance capabilities of the Dynaudio mid/bass driver ensure the class-leading bass performance. 
      A step up in performance from the smaller M10 model, the compact Dynaudio Emit M20 exhibits true high-end sound quality and exceptional value, proudly continuing the tradition of exceptional Dynaudio compact loudspeaker designs.

      Cary Audio SLP90 (SLP98) TUBE PRE-AMPLIFIER 
      This is one of Cary's earlier high end pre-amps that later became the SLP94 and then the SLP98. Whereas the SLP98 has solid state rectification, this one uses tubes with separate power supply and dual adjustable gain controls.
      The SLP 90 is point-to-point wired pre-amplifier with no circuit boards. The power supply is external to keep the hum away. It has a very low, 500 Ohm output impedance, making it compatible with even 'the pickiest' solid state amplifiers. Needless to say, it's compatible with tube power amplifiers. This low output impedance is also helpful with long interconnects.
      Listening to the Cary Audio SLP-90 you will immediately realize that you are hearing a tube sound. It produces a large, open sound-stage and makes mid-range sound just magical. Voices particularly are rich and wonderfully textured. The low frequencies are very natural, neutral and rich.
      Unit has 220V  Power Supply. Black non-faded anodized front and chrome chassis. Some texts are faded. The chrome chassis is in very good condition.
      This unit was serviced by Cary Audio USA in 2016.
      I have  inner and outer box and power supply unit box. This unit is line stage only without the phono stage. All tubes in the pictures including the spares are included
      TUBES ;
      - 12AX7A (ECC83) 2X
      - 12AU7A (ECC82) 4X
      - 6CA4 2X
      -220V Power Supply.
      -Paypal accepted.
      Shipment will consist of two boxes; one for the pre-amp and tubes, the other for the external power supply.
      Worldwide shipment. Buyer pays associated PayPal and freight fees.
      Audition/Test welcome at suitable time.
      I will respond to all emails.
       Thanks for looking.
