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.

Guangzhou International Advanced Audio Exhibition 2018

We had a brilliant weekend at the Guangzhou International Advanced Audio Exhibition 2018. It is one of the bigger shows in Asia and it was packed most of the time. We played our Coltrane 3s  for the first time together with Swizz Goldmund Electronics which was a great combination along with Jorma Design Statement. The spectacular CD player is from French Metronome. As per usual when in China the audience is a great deal younger than in the West so good energy all round. 

Thank you to everyone involved!

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.

Excellent review

Our Mingus Quintets were reviewed by Finnish HiFi magazine Hifimaailma and it seem to have been a rave review, Just listen to a few of the translated quotes: 

sophisticated – faithful to the original – one of the best I have heard

Quintet is an impressive one. You should try this.

Many thanks!
