Coltrane 3

really nice warm sound and huge soundstage

Jason Victor Serinus – Stereophile

dark rich color, superb focus, sledgehammer dynamics, and a very wide soundstage

Peter, Paul and Mary’s “Very Last Day” gave me goosebumps

In Bonn!

We’re having a great time in sunny Bonn this weekend, at the annual show at Hifi Linzbach. We are playing on the Godfather of our models Coltrane Supreme 2 as well as Coltrane 3. There are a lot of pleased audiophiles around.


We are playing with Aavik Acoustics electronics together with the Coltrane 3s. Great sound.

Coltrane Supreme 2 goes great together with this turntable from German Brinkmann.

Come and have a listen if you are nearby!

Duke 2 award

Our beloved Duke 2 just received a great award at the Australian Sound+Image Awards 2016.
Duke 2 is Highly Commended.


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.
