THEy've been called the BEST-SOUNDING SPEAKERS IN THE WORLD
Several of the most respected reviewers in the USA, and thousands of happy customers agree. Osborn Loudspeakers makes 40 models, from small to large. We don't advertise but have sold more than 3,500 pairs of speakers in 16 countries, all by word of mouth. These speakers speak for themselves. Make up your own mind.
Book in a free, no-obligation demo in Melbourne (Taylors Lakes) on weekdays, weekends or after hours by calling 03 9390 1564 or emailing. I am happy to pick up interstate visitors at the airport. Any purchases can be returned unconditionally within 30 days for a full refund, but in 30 years, this has never happened.
Osborn speakers are good at all volumes. I think this is where Greg's speakers are so strong. The cabinets are immensely well made, high-quality drivers and attention to detail in the cross overs. Other manufacturers talk about these things. Greg actually does it. No rocket science, just a genuinely well-made product.
I think Osborns are terrific speakers for the money. Have owned (still do) Grand Monument References and Epitomes. I reckon Greg is one of the most underrated speaker makers on the planet. I recommend you go and have a listen. You won't be disappointed. They'll blow your socks off.
Desperate to hear Greg's speakers, I booked a cheap flight to Melbourne. Greg lives close to the airport. He picked me up and dropped me back there after the demo. His wife even made me lunch. Needless to say, I was impressed with the speakers and put down a deposit, and can't wait for them to arrive in Sydney.
When I walked into your showroom at a hi fi show in Sydney last year, I immediately knew that what I was hearing was possibly the finest hi fi sound I had ever heard. Most of the demonstration speakers you had set up were very large indeed, so I was doubly surprised when I realised that the pair I was listening to was ‘only’ the Eclipse pair.
The next thing I couldn’t believe was the price. After listening to a couple of BYO demo tracks (yes, I am very picky), I went home being completely sure that at last, after many years of wondering, I had discovered loudspeakers that were worth at least quadruple the asking price, and probably much more. Buying them became a no-brainer — despite the fact that unlike many hi fi fans, I’ve never been gullible enough to throw large sums of money at small acoustic improvements. Instead, here at last was the converse: a small sum of money for a massive change to the sound. The Eclipses were orders of magnitude better than my Legend Kantu 2s (which even after 20 years do still sound superb).
I have a ridiculously large music collection, the vast majority of it classical, but not only that. Whatever I play, I am constantly amazed by the Osborns. I know for certain that nothing goes near them at their price point. You really could charge triple and that statement would still be true — but of course I wouldn’t have spent that kind of money. So, thank you for making possible a daily hi fi sound in my house that I never thought I would experience except at a trade show.
It's my pleasure to provide my feedback on your speakers for your website. The ‘holy grail’ of music for the purist will always remain the live musical performance. Many speaker designers come from an electrical engineering background and design their products to maximise the performance of the technology involved, studying test graphs and diagrams to plot the performance of their speakers. Greg Osborn, although aware of all this, does not come from this background, but pursues his design work because of an abiding passion in music and in having this reproduced as close to an original performance as is possible. One needs to look through the beauty of design and the complexity of the electronics involved to always seek the humanity and passion at the heart of every musical performance.
Greg’s high point in his speaker range is the Grand Monument tower speakers, large, heavy, beautiful and very impressive in any setting. Having now owned many pairs of Greg’s speakers including a pair of Monuments, these truly are the epitome of brilliant design and performance. Visitors to my music room are shocked by the depth and breadth of the sound they are hearing, even on their own CDs that they may have owned for years. I always explain that most reproduction systems and speakers do not accurately reproduce the recorded sound available to them. But the Monuments transform every recording into a living musical performance. Being allowed to access this quality of sound transposes your listening space into a performance space filled with all the original musicians who created the sounds that you are listening to. You feel the acoustic bass and the drums through the floor, you hear the cymbals high above you and the vocalist is right in front, performing just for you.
These speakers have been reviewed as among the best in the world, but they are more than that, they are the music, because they become the performance.
