Further information: Well regarded "Miniature Reference Monitors" from this Australian manufacturer of audiophile speakers, using high quality large magnet drivers and heavy duty braced cabinets. This particular model is renowned for an exceptionally large soundstage for its size and high component value at $1195 RRP.  Drive units are Focal 30mm titanium inverted dome tweeter and 125mm dual voice-coil woofer.

 

Specifications indicate each speaker weighs 8Kg but that seems incorrect. They feel MUCH heavier. One thing is undeniable about the cabinets though - when tapped they sound totally free of resonances, which is quite unusual in this price range.

 

This pair is finished in dark mahogany and in excellent condition overall, with no large scratches, dents or obvious flaws in the cabinets, grilles or drivers. I don't have original cartons, but am prepared to pack and organise freight if there is no local buyer. Since the last pair of F1s sold recently for $600, this is great buying at the asking price and condition.

Hi Guys

Sorry if I haven't responded individually. I put my computer to bed for the night after checking messages too late to reply to everyone.

The speakers have now been sold pending payment to the first local buyer happy to pay the asking price.

      Item Condition: GOOD Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Brisbane State: QLD Payment Method: EFT or Cash on Pick up. Reason for selling: Upgrade Further information:
      I really did not think I would sell these but a big upgrade came along out of the blue and here we are.
      I purchased these from an SNA member on the gold coast about 3 years ago who had them for a few years with little use.They sound wonderful as anyone that has listened to Osborn speakers would agree. All the drivers and tweeters are in VGC and operate as they should.(=Great Sound) They produced a good sound stage and detailed full sound with good bass.
      Osborn Speakers are very very well made and these weigh in at 68kg(Epitome) and 42kg(Bass Bin) respectively. 
      Ive added a link below showing the relevant specs.(This model Epitome use Kevlar coned drivers.)
      For full Transparency Ive recorded the marks on each speaker. 
      The cabinets have a few small marks which can be touched up by someone that knows what they are doing.I don't so I left them exactly how I bought them.
      One has a large scratch on the side.Once set up you cant see the scratch.The fabric driver covers have a few small holes in them.I have new fabric that I sourced from Greg Osborn that comes with the speakers.There is some slight fading around where the fabric driver covers sit.
      I found that the speakers presented fine from a few metres away.(Ive include a pic of them in situe in my System to show that.)
      Only on closer inspection are you able to see the marks.I have quite a few pics to show those marks.
      I need to point out that the pics below really do exaggerate the marks.
      Id like to offer these up to anyone in Brisbane or near by for pick up 1st before going down the shipping road.
      You can audition them however you'll need to bring speaker cables of at least 3m in length. I have my new speakers in position and they live there now.
      Cheers

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Taylors Lakes State: VIC Payment Method: Bank Transfer Cash Reason for selling: NLR Further information: Selling my Osborn Epitome Reference Elite Tower Speakers. Condition is excellent speakers are just over 1 year old bought brand new from Osborn. They have the Elite Crossover installed and sound absolutely amazing. I’m reluctantly selling due to personal reasons and also thinking of downsizing in future because I don’t have a big room. Pick up is preferred because of the size and weight 110 kg per speaker. The Epitome speakers don’t come up for sale very often and I think they are endgame speakers.
       RRP $15500
