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.

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

Cheers

Thailand Hi-End Audio & Video Show

Great pic from the latest Audio Show in Thailand sent from our distributor there.

They were using Transparent Opus MM cable , Moon (Sim Audio) electronics and Thorens TD550 turntable which sounded great with Django XL, obviously:)

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.
