Having a bit of a rationalisation so both my Rega R9 and Larsen 4.2 speakers are up for sale.
I bought these back in 2014 and they had been out on long term loan with a few people as I can’t quite get them to work well in my room(s).
They are a ‘3-way design’ with an external crossover mounted to the rear of the cabinet. The 8" bass driver has no crossover, and used in a transmission line enclosure. The classic Rega RR125 mid bass is used along with a Morel 1" tweeter and an additional 19mm Scanspeak tweeter.
The crossover has a bass attenuation option to help room integration.
I would describe them as grown up versions of the smaller R-Series. I have had the R1, R3, R7, Alya & Jura, which were all great but generally lacking in bass depth and treble smoothness. These R9s are a step up, superb fast bass, still easy to drive and reasonably efficient at aroun 89dB.
They are in great condition, in Cherry veneer. One has a small chip on the top rear corner, the other a smaller ding on the same corner. I don’t have the grilles to hand but I’ll dig them out.
There are a few marks on the outriggers, the original spikes will be supplied.
These don’t come up often but I’m looking for £1100.
