And finally, The Room!

It took a while but finally we could find a moment to post this. All of the diffusors were delivered at midnight the night before the show so the room wasn’t ready until just a couple of hours before the show opened! Such a great feeling to do the final touches after so much hard and stressful work.

The Coltrane Supreme 2 really sound absolutely fantastic.

Christmas came early

There’s only a few weeks to go and the excitement is building at Marten HQ. Las Vegas CES 2013 is just around the corner. (Oh, and there’s Christmas too).

We’re launching two new models at the CES – Django L and Coltrane Tenor.

Marten Django L

Marten Coltrane Tenor

Yes, that’s right – Django L is here! Following in response to last year’s success, Django XL, we had to build this. We’re really happy with the result. In fact it’s exceeded our expectations. This one is 2-way, with bass units from Norwegian SEAS and tweeter from Accuton.

We’re really proud of Coltrane Tenor too. It has newly designed bass units and we think it sounds great.

We had a sneak preview in our hometown of Gothenburg as we talked about in our previous post, but the world premiere will be at the CES. We hope you can visit us in Las Vegas, but if not, just follow all the action here.

We’ll be right back with even more stuff.

Surf’s Up

There’s this amazing huge park in munich, called Englisher Garten where there are a lot of canals that you actually can swim in. At the last day of our visit last week, the weather was so warm and the park filled up with sunbathers and also surfers.

No records found, please check your short code

One of the canals has a constant wave you can surf on. Pretty cool eh?
