Spatial M4 Triode Master - New Product Announcement
« on: 17 Sep 2017, 10:10 pm »
The Triode Master version of the Spatial M4 is now in production. Its really a jewel and has all the sonic attributes of the M3 Triode in a smaller package, that is optimal for smaller listening rooms. The high efficiency, twin 12 inch design incorporates an easy electrical load and the same premium compression driver from the M3 Triode, operating in point source dipole. Wired with Duelund throughout and uses Clarity Caps in the crossover. It sounds far beyond anything you would expect at $2995 pr. Available in Red, White and Black colors. Let me know if you have any questions. The speaker is now available for order on our website.

Lose the box,

Hi Clayton
If the 12" cones on the M4 Triodes are made for "smaller rooms" than the 15" M3 Triodes,
then what would be the approximate difference in terms of room size for each?

Or what would be the approximate division in room size be for the 2 different models? (in terms of dimensions, square footage, OR  volume-cubed feet) for the two?
E.g., would you say that the M4Ts would be appropriate for a room smaller than 15'X15'?
And that otherwise, the M3Ts would be appropriate for a room larger than 15'x15'?

15x15=225 ft squared.
 Or are we measuring room size with ceiling height included? And this calculating room size in volume rather than square feet.

 Clayton, what are the parameters for deciding if the M3s or M4s are best for a particular room size?
Thx

Commentary on minimum suggested distance from boundary walls would be helpful as well.

In rooms where the width is less than 12 ft, I would use the M4. Larger rooms - the M3. I recommend the closest distance to the side wall to be 1 ft. and 3ft from the wall behind the speaker. You can fudge these distances and experiment, but that is the guideline. Its best to call me at 435-640-1294 to discuss the room specifics.

I recently purchased a pair of Spatial M4 Triode Masters. I have been passionate about music and music reproduction for decades and have owned many speakers during that time. My budget has never allowed a “cost-is-no-object” speaker so I’ve necessarily gravitated to speakers that offer significant value and musicality for under $3000/pr. In that category are the Golden Ear Triton Fives and the KEF LS50, both of which I’ve owned. But I recently purchased a pair of Spatial M4 Triode Masters and they are in a different league altogether.

What makes this speaker a standout and separates it from the pack of speakers in this price range is its effortless dynamics and utterly convincing spatial rendering, localization, and tonal character of instruments, all accomplished with realistic scale. Music is unconstrained – no compression or congestion. Everything takes on a realistic snap and sparkle. For example, the buzz and birr of stringed instruments or how trumpets just rip the air as in live music. All this and more is beautifully conveyed.

Over and over, I marveled at how a speaker could be this explosive in its delivery but, at the same time, intimate, nuanced and intricately detailed. This amazing speaker delivers delicacy without edge, at any volume level. If desired, I can listen at high levels without cringing and fatiguing but the M4 also maintains this coherence even at low volume settings.

One last thing – and this is among the most important of the M4’s strengths. Because of its controlled directionality, it doesn’t interact with the room nearly as much as conventional speakers. This is a huge plus.

The only negative is that the M4, although it is capable exquisitely detailed bass, does not play the lowest octave of bass with authority. For that you’ll need to add a sub but blending is easy. Having said that, drums sound convincingly tympanic like a vibrating piece of skin and are rendered about as lifelike as I’ve ever heard.

Bottom line: a direct path to emotional connection with the music. Bravo, Clayton!

Hi, just wanted to comment on the controlled directivity. Because of such, I thought that I would not be needing/using my Shakti Hallowgraph DIY's that act as soundfield "adjusters" (my word, not theirs). Not so, as I find myself constantly toeing these in, out or directed at the listener depending on HOW they are recorded. Most, but not all of the time, orchestras want to be toed out for larger soundfield and in for ensemble work (jazz, chamber) but will vary. Sometimes the direct sound of the speakers can be a bit much for me, as I find myself wanting more ambience, again, depending on the recording. Just wanted to comment in this area, thanks!
