Default A spy in Martens headquarter...me! New Coltrane Supreme II

The Marten referens system, Coltrane Supreme is och big speaker system



Now, there is an upgrade on its way. Still under development and the boxes are not ready but the speaker elements and filters etc are almost ready.

I had the opportunity to listen to them. Wow. One of my top 3 hifi experiences.
Very god. and will be a bit better when everything is set.

One picturelink failed in the first post. Here is it.



The speaker is 5 way. 6 bas elements,17-40 hz plays backwords. 6 elements in the upper and lower front plays the rest of the bas, 2 plays midrange and two diamondtweeters the treble. It will be around 80 inch high.

When the speaker is ready it will look like a Marten but with wider back. The sides will be curved in carbon fiber.

It sounded very natural. Extremely dynamic, both micro and macro dynamics. The 3d and 2d were the best i ever heard. The scene was great and it was a lot of air around every instrument and singer. Bas depth was stunning and still cristal clear like the rest of the frequencies.

The price? Up to 500 000 USD can be expected.

It will be shown i Vegas next year.

Today I had the luck to listening to this prototype once more. I played my own familiar CD's and this time a decent camera took care of the pictures.

I just can confirm my earlier impression. These speaker sounds very good. The new Thiel membranes have extremely low distorsion and the sound of this speaker is warm, jet open and fresh. I have never heard so much from the recording and it's environment as this time. I think this is my new standard that every speaker i listen to have to beat.

Here are some new pictures.










Two diamond tweeters:




Thiel membranes with dimples:





4 of them:



Alone:



This membrane moves more air then you think due to that it goes further out to the edge.

Edit: Foto enhancement.

Those are seriously impressive, those will be a major assault on the ears, any idea on the retail price yet? I shudder to think.

Just realized that this thread should be in the Marten section instead. Stupid me!
Can it be moved?
