Coltrane Momento 2 & Mingus Twenty

Launching this May in Munich High End: Coltrane Momento 2 and Mingus Twenty.

Coltrane Momento 2 has all the upgraded detail such as first order crossover and Cell technology. It completes the Coltrane Series. 

Mingus Twenty is a celebration of our twenty years in High-End audio. Mingus was the first speaker our chief designer Leif Olofsson developed into production and now he created a new model in the same spirit, in a limited edition of 20 pairs.

We are having a sneak preview this week in Gothenburg celebrating our anniversary and launching two new CDs: Carousel with Rhythm Art Duo and Violin & Marimba with Duo Granmo-Berg.

There was a great party yesterday with live music from many of the artists of the albums including Daniel Berg, Tobias Granmo, Fredrik Duvling and Matti Ollikainen.

Happy New Year!

Marten 20th Anniversary

A slightly belated greeting but this is a very special year for us. It is 20 years since our founder finalised the design of his first official Marten speaker; Mingus.

We are looking forward to an exciting year with lots of events and new developments.

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!
