Omega Super 8 XRS - Ebony with R treatment, furutech binding post, neotech UPOCC

New model from Omega, one year old. Custom made with Level 2 ebony finish. R treatment inside. Built with neotech UCC wire and furutech binding post.

https://omegaloudspeakers.com/collections/tower-speakers/products/super-8xrs?variant=38555364748

Comes with extra binding post due to cleaning lady breaking one and i replaced it.

The speakers are 9.5/10, unfortunately the only blemish came from the factory. the clear coat on one speaker has a few light dull scratches in the clear coat but not to the veneer. only seen at angles while backlit.

Speakers have original boxes. would prefer local sale but shipping is possible from Carlsbad, CA 92009

New cost was 3100 plus shipping. Plus $300 for the binding posts and $40 for the wire.

Asking 2300 plus paypal and shipping if we come to that.

What is the R treatment?

I think that its sound damping sheets applied to the inside to make the cabinet less resonant. I don't have much information myself.

To my eye those are probably the best looking Omegas I've ever seen. :weights:

What are the drivers? edit: probably this: "Proprietary RS8 ferrite magnet"

cool

Yes. You can see the details in this post https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=148918.0

"The new RS8 is very similar to the RS5 in tone. The cone material is the same. They really sound like a large RS5. Great fast tight bass and very nice dynamics. They are an 8 Ohm driver and about 98dB in sensitivity. The response is very linear and finally got rid of the 8KHz peak the old drivers had."
