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.

“Before anything else,

preparation is the key to success”

said Alexander Graham Bell, perhaps the worlds first audiophile. Preparing is exactly what we’re doing these days yet another time at the CES Show 2014 in glorious Las Vegas. There’s a lot work left but tomorrow the preparation should be done.

Venetian corridor

We will get back to you soon, with more stuff from it all.

Cheers

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.

The Marten Room

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?

Marten Mono Power Amplifier

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:)

Vegas Baby!

Las Vegas by Night

First of all, I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year! We missed the celebrations here in Las Vegas and apparently all the casinos tried to out do each other’s fire works display so I can imagine that it was spectacular. We arrived the day before yesterday and are well excited about tomorrow’s show, CES 2011.
