FS - Rega R9 Speakers

Recommended Posts

Super Wammer

Having a bit of a rationalisation so my Rega R9 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 £1300.

Collection only from Faringdon, Nr Swindon.
I can delivery locally, if needed.

They are really lovely speakers. had them at mine for a good while. Not too fussy about placement, fairly amp agnostic. I took me long time to decide that I marginally prefer my current speakers. I guess that would come down to musical choice. If you want something that stands out from anything around this price point get your wallet out.

They are excellent, my only real reason for selling is I have a very strong ~33Hz bass peak in my room and these have deep bass extension so unless I used DSP they don't work as well as they could. In my old flat, the room was a little bigger and L shaped, they worked a treat.

I've bought a pair of little Larsen 4.2s, while my DIY open baffle project will be resurected in the Spring.

Just to add, I would be interested in a Bryston BCD-1 or similar CDP in Part Exchange. (long shot I know...)
