Munich High End!

Here we are again in lovely Munich. And this is the Marten & Jorma Design Room!

Brand new Coltrane Tenor 2 – Statement Edition, with the Jorma Design flagship cables inside. 

Brand new Jorma Phono

and Jorma USB Reference.

 

We are playing vinyl on this awesome refurbished Thorens TD124 turntable.

With a 12”  Thomas Schick tonearm and a ZYX Cartridge.

The turntable is connected with Jorma Design Phono of course to the Whest Titan Pro phono amp.

We’re playing tapes on this really cool old reel-to-reel player from Nagra, IV-S.

This is brand new Eric from Engström. A real powerful Tube Amplifier.

  

Here is also the Select DAC II from MSB

with its two power supplies.

And finally the Aurender media player.

Make your way here if you can, it sounds awesome!

This is our latest release from Marten Recordings: Duo Granmo-Berg, a very dynamic violin and marimba live recording cd. It will be available to buy soon in our shop.

Mingus Quintet and Jorma Design review

These speakers really are something special. They’re clear, open and dynamic but also lusciously smooth and relaxed, with a highly convincing natural tonality and deep, powerful bass. 

Mingus Quintet

Now that’s a quote worth boasting about. This is Christian Punter from HiFi magazine HiFi-Advice in a review of our Mingus Quintet and Jorma Design No.3 and Origo cables.

Check it out here!

“An all out and cutting edge loudspeaker system”

We can’t but agree on this quote about our mighty Coltrane 3 from the latest issue of Japanese Stereo Sound. We had some of the quotes translated for us and it’s high scores all around.

“It achieves an excellent signal-to-noise ratio to the ear, remarkably sharp focus with sophistication”

 

“It also delivers extraordinary linear characteristics throughout its extraordinary wide range”

High Score!

Sound Quality: 92%!

Very high score received for our own recording, Supreme Sessions 2 from Ken Kessler at HiFiNews.co.uk.

Here is the review in full:

Supreme Sessions 2 Marten Recordings (no catalogue number) A gold sticker on the sleeve says it all: ‘A true audiophile recording! Ballads, Jazz and Classical Music, recorded live in studio with two mics only!’ Ordinarily, this would have be heading for the hills, but it comes from the Swedish speaker company, Marten, and what they’ve assembled is a terrific demo disc – not something you would sit and listen to for pleasure, but a treat for showing off your system. Especially useful are tracks like the percussive ‘Dance, Drums, Dance’, sort of like Kodo via Stockholm, ‘Rosetta’ with its ragtime brass and even some banjo, plenty of Bela Bart6k for those so inclined and even a couple from the Great American Songbook.

KK Sound Quality: 92%
