For Sale – Shahinian Obelisk Mk 2 – £3895
The OBELISK was the first loudspeaker designed and produced by Shahinian in 1977. It was truly a “first” and at the time, its shape and acoustical disposition were considered radical.
For their size and price, the achieved response is nothing short of astounding. In terms of placement they perform best when out in the open, away from walls and corners. Room placement/storage is facilitated by the fitment of four twin-wheel casters suitable for carpeted or hard floors.
They simply recreate space . . . and possess a tremendous sense of scale. They are still unique – They simply make great music!
The Obelisk is an interesting design consisting of a rear-mounted passive radiator with 8-in polypropylene curvilinear cone woofer, two 38mm Titanium ultralight exposed dome midranges, and four W-shaped Titanium/polyimide dome supertweeters. Designed as a genuine poly/omnidirectional speaker which performs best in the open, away from walls and corners they feature woofers with 1 1/2-in aluminum high-temperature patented D.D. voice coils, 28-oz magnet, and magnesium basket; supertweeters with 10-mm voice coils, filters at 6 dB woofer, 18 dB midrange, 18 dB supertweeter and for protection a 3.0 amp quick blow fuse.
The speakers include original boxes so can be shipped.
