    Default FS. Edingdale Mk1 Speakers

    Sadly i really dont use my new system now due to constraints of neighbours etc so I might as well move it on. These speakers are in great condition and sound fabulous with pretty much any amp but I have to say, with my new Pathos they really sound super.

    Pictures are not great as i am pretty lame now and cant move much alas.

    Speakers 650 firm. Pick-up only alas.


    The marks etc are minimal and look much worse than they are. These were hand made by Colin Topps.
    these are really a 2 man lift and are 113/44/24cm dimentions.

    i might add these are fine near walls or away from them. they are about 96db sensitive too so withh work well with a set ot 6 watt or a big powerful amp too. Gary the last owner used them with various amps including a top of range set amp and I ve found that they sing with anything; anywhere.

    From the maker, who said this...

    these speakers are very happy being driven by a 200W SS amp as a 6W SET valve amp. Making them very flexible when it comes to amp type and power output. They are rated around 95dB efficient with a nominal 8-ohm load. They are a MLTL type fully braced vented cabinet tuned to around 30Hz.

    Despite the number of drivers they are a simple 2-way speaker with a simple easy load to drive second order filter. The tweeter is a 8-ohm Monacor pseudo ribbon. The 4 main drivers are 6.5 inch mid-woofers that are wired 2 in series and 2 in parallel to maintain a nominal 8-ohm load. The advantage of using the 4 main mid-woofers such, not only gives you the cone area of a large 12 inch woofer in a slim cabinet but also reduces the overall distortion of the drivers by a factor of 4 and gives a 6dB gain in efficiency. Hence the quality midrange of the speakers and the clean extended low frequency.

    I've heard these at Grant's place many times and they're lovely speakers. They're not only a beautiful piece of furniture, they also sounded excellent with every amp I've heard them with, including a little T amp.
    These speakers are an absolute bargain at this price.
    Grant is a real gent so deal with confidence

    cheers brian; yes they are extraordinary things, and if made by a mainstream manufacturer rather than a boutique one would have cost north of 5/6k easily. they are the best speakers ive heard in 50 years

    I've really been getting into cans myself, bought a load of valve amps and a few pairs of cans. I will have to have another clear out! Anyway I distract, I've only heard good things about these speakers and they seem to punch well above their weight (like several times over), GLWS

    Feels like the end of an era I'm sure. I haven't seen you list the amp yet?
