the Duets are 1.260 high & the Silhouettes are 1.580 high. I have had my silhouettes since the very early nineties & bought them directly from Lia & Glen from their factory & showroom. Fantastic speakers.

They wouldn't have cost much more than that 15-20 years ago.  

 

I have a pair of Duets (which cost $2k new in the late 90s as I recall) which I am having to get rid of because we are moving overseas.  I am putting them on this forum's Classifieds Board, and will just be happy if they go to a good home.  I didn't expect (and still don't) that they would be worth much now.

Life is full of joy. Listening to vinyl this afternoon on my refurbished Thorens turntable pumped through Audio Definition Silhouette speakers. Absolute bliss. Both items purchased from Lia & Glen about 25 years ago & still going gang busters.

Hello

I just bought a set of Audio Definition "Duet" floor standing speakers apparently made in S.A. around 16 years ago beautiful sound look like very good quality but I can't find any information about them on the net and they are a sealed unit, have to remove the sock (speaker grill) if I want to get a look at the drivers which I'm a bit hesitant to do so can anybody help me please if they know anything about this company and what they made.

Cheers

Seb

Hi there, 

I have just been kindly gifted by a fellow named Jeff Neild a pair of Quintet serial number 10001. They have been kindly donated to my recording studio here in Whangarei northland new Zealand where I'm hoping they will serve as some very good playback speakers. I am so very interested in finding out about these beauties. Is your phone number still through same as on earlier threads? I'd love to catch up.

I don't suppose anyone has the specs for the Audio Definition Duets? I can't find any information on them and I own a pair.

Search the classifieds here & you should find a listing or two on the ones I’ve owned & sold. The pics include shots of the brochure with specs.

Wow this is so nice. Makes my day. I remember Jeff. He had a lot of faith in us buying the first pair. 

Kind regards Lia Audio Definition.

hi got pair the same but my are synergy ser 6004 diffirent tops then one on ebay so dont much more about them.

Good morning 

Well let me see. Just for the record. 

Synergy model sold for $3,000 retail. 

There where at least 70 pairs made, of which about 20 went to China. Another 10 in Asia somewhere. I don’t believe there are any in Japan. 

The rest are in Aus. Super popular because of their efficiency and great sound. 

Email me direct and I can see if I have specs. 

The later model had a ribbon tweeter instead of the on in the pic. 

 

Still awesome however. Hope you love them.

I have a pair of Audio Definition speakers (016) and I now have to down size. They have given me great joy over the years. I am now 85 years old and followed my father with a love of good quality music and reproduction. My Father was a horn loaded enthusiast and was a friend of Voigt. ( of Lothar Voigt) So Hi-Fi has been in my blood for a long time. Dad used to cut his own vinyl to try to get good recordings, in addition to always building his own amplifiers. In his days speakers were so efficient Voigt only used a few Watts to fill Alexandria Palace in the UK. I will put them on Gumtree in the near future.
