We are so happy to read this review from Roy Gregory at HiFi+. You can download the review as a pdf here.
This is the best balanced and most musically satisfying speaker I’ve heard from the company – by some distance.
Thank you very much Mr Gregory.

What a great place Munich is. Walking around in this beautiful city in the spring weather is a real treat. Popping into a bierhalle for a drink here and there makes it all even better:)
The High End fair is exactly how you would expect it to be in Germany, neat, tidy and well organised with a lot of space for everyone. We had our room set up and ready yesterday evening and it’s actually sounding pretty darn good if we may say that ourselves.
Unfortunately I had a little memory mishap and forgot my Canon 50D that I usually use for all the blog photos but luckily, Leif’s little handy Olympus F1.8 takes great pictures so that is what we’ll be using for this show.
The Coltrane 2, M•Amp and M•Furniture set up with Jorma Design’s brand new cables, Unity. We also use SMT’s lovely looking diffusors that we had in our room at CES 2011 in Las Vegas.
The FormFloors, the FromSub and Bladelius Tyr, playing audio from a MacBook Air also makes for a pretty neat second set up.
Even if the room is quite large we actually filled it most of this rather busy day. Tomorrow the show will open for non-audio business people so maybe it will be even busier.
See you tomorrow with more form the rest of the show.

We are very happy to participate with our latest models at Europe’s biggest High End Audio trade fair in Munich this year. High End has been going since 1983 which is pretty old in Audio circuits. We will exhibit Coltrane 2 and our own Mono Power Amplifier M•Amp as well as Jorma Design cables and Svanå Miljöteknink Diffusors. It would be great if you came to visit us in room Atrium 4 2.OG E214, we’ll be there from May 19 – 22.
This is what it looked like last year.
You’re very welcome to visit us.

Since CES 2011 we have received a lot of attention at different places around the internet. Here are some of the mentions we’ve had:
“The system looked and sounded truly wonderful, and both amps and speakers are well worth checking out.”
Alan Sircom at The Absolute Sound
“At last year’s CES, many of my favorite rooms featured Sweden’s Marten speakers. The same held true this year.”
Thank you for the music:) Erick Lichte, at stereophile
“So, how did it sound? Simply put, it was outstanding, highly detailed, very transparent and musical at the same time.”
Key Kim at Stereotimes
“Another Swedish company making an excellent impression was Marten“
the Audio Beat
“This was one of the few rooms to treat the room, and it contributed to an intimate, stimulating demonstration.”
“Uber bass resolution.”
“Sweden’s Marten is well-regarded for its high-end speakers and takes a fair amount of pride in their audiophile-pleasing performance.”
Paul Ridden at Gizmag
A massive thank you to all of you, from all of us here at Marten.

We received a lot of attention for our brilliant diffusors from Svanå Miljöteknik in Sweden.
Apparently there's a famous building in the background but we keep the focus on more important things:)
These diffusors are the nicest looking ones that I have ever seen. They are normally rather colossal with the WAF factor on a bare minimum.

M•Amp by night
We have a lot more to show from CES 2011 so here we go:
The new, very interesting USB Dac from Bladelius. Seems to have very high quality both in performance and appearance.

I know it’s only been about us so far but it’s only because we have been so busy in our own room that we haven’t been able to leave it. Here is the whole set up with the Mono Power Amplifiers, the Coltrane 2 on our new Audio Furniture. It does look pretty impressive eh?
I promise there will be more about other stuff as well tomorrow so please come back soon.
Now it’s time for some All American Burgers or something like that:)

In fact we’re still in Las Vegas, Nevada, having fun at the amazingly big CES 2011 show.

Right in time for the start of CES 2011 we have launched our brand new web site and proudly present it at marten.se. Have a look and tell us what you think. We spent a good few man-hours on getting this together, and think it works very well with Ulf Celander’s photos. Even if we do say that ourselves:)
If you are in Las Vegas for the CES 2011, we would like to welcome you to the Marten Tour. This year we have our own room with premiers for Coltrane 2 and M•Amp Mono Power Amplifier, as well as our M•Furniture range.
Coltrane 2 & M•AMP Mono Power Amplifier:
Marten, Venetian Room 30-130
You can also listen to our loudspeakers in these rooms:
Engström & Engström, Venetian Room 29-128
EAR USA, Venetian Room 30-112
Harmonic Tech, Venetian Room 30-209
Please come by and say hi. I will be back with more from CES 2011 in a bit
