Marten Heritage Duke 2

Swedish loudspeaker company Marten delivers understated beauty and solid engineering in the Duke 2, the entry point of the mid-level Heritage range. it’s an elegant mid-sized sharp-angled standmount dressed in an oh-so classy gloss veneer, standing 40cm high and priced at $11,290 in matte finishes, $11,890 in gloss, so you might guess they feature ingredients that take them beyond your run-of-the mill standmounter.

They boast high quality Accuton drivers — a 25mm ceramic tweeter and a 7-inch ceramic mid/bass driver, which combine to deliver a transient-fast and detailed sound – fast fingers on steel guitar strings showed what these drivers can do best.

There’s an ultra-clean handling oftransients and a delivery of profound levels of detail that can become addictive. The bass register proved rich and surprisingly ample, attacking quite powerfully on both acoustic and electric lines. This is a small speaker that’s huge on quality.

Excellent review of our Duke

The Duke 2 is a highly refined transducer with a consistent set of satisfying qualities across important performance criteria, namely, detail, transient speed, soundstage and tonality. Audio performance is high and given the form factor and the choice of veneers and finishes, it will suit any appropriately-sized environment, be it classic or contemporary.
