OB 7 plus pair for sale
« on: 29 Sep 2016, 07:48 pm »
Hey folks,
Have a pair of OB 7 plus speakers for sale in the Boston / Providence area.
I've really enjoyed these over the years but changing my HT setup.

More details on these big floor standing full range speakers is here: http://gr-research.com/ob-7plus.aspx
The speakers are in great shape, working fine. They look exactly like the photos in that link because they are probably the same speakers!
I bought these not as a kit but as a demo unit that Danny had built for bringing to shows.
They would be expensive to ship, so hoping someone local-ish is interested. I have the original shipping boxes so they could be shipped...
Asking $1500 OBO.

If that is one of the pairs that I built then they are really nice speakers and that is a great price.

I looked in OP's profile and a picture of his HT system shows OB 7's. Look VERY nice.

Sorry didn't receive notification of posts in the thread.

Added a couple of photos - not very good but hopefully give you the idea.

I bought them from you Danny but that was a while ago so maybe you don't recall...

I'm guessing those  likely have some goodies in the networks too ?  Jupitier HT's,  Alpha core foils perhaps ?

I would bet on the alpha core foils, but I don't think Danny was using jupiters when these were designed.  My money is on sonicap gen II with platinum bypass caps.  The first I read of Danny using Jupiters was on the SuperV crossover.

Best,
Ed

Quite possibly  so  Ed,  was beforer my time around  here was just sort of going on what i've read about some of Danny's past  upgrades.
Nothing  wrong with the Sonicap/Sonicap Platinum  combo,  very nice pair  . I had them in my OB7's  and in  my  Ottica's as well  :beer:

Are these still available? I'm in the Boston area and am looking to upgrade from x-statiks. I'll send you a PM.

This is really getting into the "great deal" category.  I've heard this model several times, and it's a very complete speaker that does everything well.

I'll say.

Peter, I know you said you don't have the boxes so you don't want to ship but you might want to check with FedEx, UPS, or a third party (we have a place around here called Box Depot) and see what they would charge to box the speakers up and ship them. FexEx has an option to ship ground at freight prices for large items.

That way you don't have to build the boxes but do have the ability to ship which could open this up to more people. Buyer pays shipping expenses of course.

The ad says that Peter does have the original shipping boxes.

Great deal on these.  Very tempting!  Too bad I have too many speakers already.

Hi mlundy57,
I do have the crates but I think shipping would be $300 or so, so makes sense to keep it local. But if someone really wants them and will pay the shipping, not a problem.

Are the enclosures finished with real veneer or vinyl wrapping?

What wattage do the upper part need?

Hi Alex,
Rosewood veneer, looks good and still in great shape (Danny could clarify if I'm wrong).
As to watts I'm not sure, again Danny might have an idea.  They are 91db efficient so should need much but I was using them in an HT setup driven by 200watts per channel.
