Coltrane Supreme 2 – Meet Your Maker in HiFi+

the Marten Coltrane Supreme 2´s real success will not be measured in sales, but in the influence in exerts over the Marten range, and – in a wider perspective – the whole high-end loudspeaker market. It´s that important!

There’s a great article in the HiFi+ Loudspeaker Special, Issue no 123 of the UK magazine. Written by former editor in chief Roy Gregory and current editor in chief Alan Sircom. It’s all about our company and especially Coltrane Supreme 2.

High End Munich 2015 – The Room

We were lucky to get some shots of the room yesterday before we opened otherwise it’d have been impossible. There has been a constant crowd hindering the view :) Leif is playing a crazy mix of tunes, everything from Rock with Jimi Hendrix , Jazz with Hiromi and Beethoven with Lang Lang to Electronica with James Blake and Blues with Junior Wells. It all sounds great!

The system

Here is the main system – Four MSB M203 Mono blocks between the pair of Coltrane 3

A clear picture

This is a real interesting video showing what’s actually deleted from a sound file when it’s compressed to mp3 format. Have a listen to Suzanne Vega’s catchy hit ‘Tom’s Diner’. Or rather the leftovers.

Ph.D. student in Composition and Computer Technologies Ryan Maguire has created this rather clear picture of how much we are missing from the mp3 compressed music. No wonder it loses so much dynamism.
