Mingus Quintet and Jorma Design review

These speakers really are something special. They’re clear, open and dynamic but also lusciously smooth and relaxed, with a highly convincing natural tonality and deep, powerful bass. 

Mingus Quintet

Now that’s a quote worth boasting about. This is Christian Punter from HiFi magazine HiFi-Advice in a review of our Mingus Quintet and Jorma Design No.3 and Origo cables.

Amazing Mingus Quintet review

We just received a brilliant review of Mingus Quintet in Korean Hi-Fi & Home Theatre magazine.

Here is a rough translation of the final paragraph:

Just as the luxurious feel and glamour of the exterior, the inside is armed with accurate detail and richness. The high-frequency tendency is natural rather than intense. It combines the clarity, detail and quick response of the mid and low range in mid-range to create a dynamic sound that accurately expresses the Martens Mingus Quintet style no matter what genre it is. As a speaker, Mingus Quintet is the ideal combination of flagship Coltrane series and mid-range Heritage line-up. 

Thank you!
