Further information:

For SALE here is the result of a "LABOUR OF LOVE PROJECT" which took many years to complete and coupled with the right HIFI equipment, these speakers give results dreams are made of.
THE DRIVERS:
two 15" Monitor RED Dual Concentric speakers with close serial numbers - Almost an Un Obtainum in today's Vintage HIFI market.
Silver Duelund Wiring was used from the connections for the HF and LF drivers to the binding posts of the external crossovers.
THE CROSSOVERS:
Connex Binding posts were used for the external crossovers having used the ‘bypass’ method, thus binding posts are not part of the circuit.
All Inductors, Capacitors and Resistors are from the DUELUND Range.
For the HF and LF circuits PIO CAST Copper Inductors, capacitors with silver resistors were used.
For the parallel running Notch Filter in the HF Circuit, the capacitor from the DUELUND RS range was used with a WPIO Inductor.
Silver wiring was used in the HF circuits, with copper wires in the LF circuit.
THE CABINETS:
Custom made of 25mm solid Jarrah Wood - as per Tannoy’s GRF-R plans, including the fitting of the very important 'Teardrop' at the beginning of the horn chamber to avoid the mixing of High and Low frequencies through the horn chambers.
The rear removeable panels had been strengthened with 40mm in depth frameworks, the void spaces filled with sand and another 25mm solid Jarrah panels to avoid mechanical vibrations and for a tight and beautiful bass.
THE SPEAKERS PLATFORMS:
Made from 40mm Perspex for the speaker cabinets to sit on, custom made solid Brass Spikes connect the 40mm Perspex to the floor.

I live in Perth, Western Australia
and local pickup is preferred, but can ship Australia or worldwide at buyers cost.
If there are any questions from serious and interested buyers or additional photos required, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I just had to pick my jaw off the floor... Wow what an amazing opportunity for someone to get a very unique pair of speakers... simply stunning~~~!!!

 

Looks like these speakers deserve a dedicated thread just on the construction and design work that has gone into them.

Bloody F A N T A S T I C :thumbsup:

How have you managed to better these. I imagine these would better or equal anything else in the Tannoy line up

Thank for you comments guys;-)

I have all the photos from the manufacturing process for these speakers available.

Also, the wiring diagram for the external crossovers are available.

Problem is, -people are always interested in the purchase of a Porsche but are willing to pay for a KIA only:-)

I'm surprised no one has bought these yet. They look like the ultimate endgame Tannoys!

I wish I was in WA to be able to come over for a listen.

 

@Braumeister What speakers are you planning to replace these babies, I'd be curious to know?

      For sale is a used Consonance Isolde Turntable, fitted with T8  tonearms and Ortofon OM 5E cartridge. I have been its first owner for 1.5 years. Only got under 60 hours playing. Nothing is wrong with it, not scratch, no bump, just a little dusty as it was left without any dust cover. 

      Included in the package is cable, power supply and, maybe, some replacement belt lying somewhere. It goes with the disc mat.

                                                    These speakers are kind of rare, not much information on the web about them and if you do find it then it would be in French, that being said these sound lovely with classical music and jazz, they hold there own with most styles of music as long as it was recorded properly and not compressed too much like some digital (Dab+) stations do.
      I found myself listening to ABC FM 92.5 and Fine music station 102.5 more than I normally would because of these French beauties and they well and truely hold there own in a dedicated stereo set up or if you could add a subwoofer or 2 (I have no space for a sub) to the equation then you would be a very happy individual indeed!
      I’m listening to Forgotten World - Altara  and they do sound special!!
       
      Speaker stands are included, they do have spikes and donation will be made if sold here.

      Lumin T2 Network Streaming DAC
      I've recently upgraded from the Lumin T2 to a MSB Premier DAC so this is now superfluous to needs.  
      [No the Fender Stratocaster in the background doesn't come with it]
       
      This is a top tier streaming DAC capable of supporting playback of PCM up to 384 kHz and DSD512 with optional internal upsampling to DSD128 and PCM 384 kHz. The Lumin app is great, with support for Spotify, MQA, Tidal, Qobuz, tuneIn and Airplay.  The T2 will also happily function as a Roon endpoint where it did most of its heavy lifting for me.
       
      I have upgraded this unit to the latest and greatest firmware and it has not missed a beat in its time with me. It is in excellent condition, not a scratch on it. It comes in the original double box with all accessories and the receipt from purchase in 2019.  The Lumin T2 has a 2 year global warranty so there is still time to run on this.  If you're looking for something to take your streaming digital playback to the next level, this is the device for you.
