I am excited to tell you about our new M series design platform that I think will set the standard for performance in the under $5K segment. Almost 5 years since the M4 and M3 were introduced in 2015, two completely new models will be rolled out later this month - M5 Sapphire & M3 Sapphire. Here is pic of the M5:
Both models feature a cool new wideband, large dome unit which operates from 500Hz to 40kHz that is direct wired to the input terminals - no crossover or any components in its signal path! You'll have to hear it to believe the level of information and soundstage projection. Its also extremely smooth with no detectable listener fatigue. Bass duties are handled by my new 15 inch cast frame woofer design - the ST15-8. This dipole woofer design performs in a powerful and linear fashion that easily surpasses box bass. It rolls off smoothly and uses one toroidal inductor in series. The Danish Janzten inductor is expensive but features ultra low 0.10 Ohm DCR, which provides tighter bass than other coil types.
The M3 Sapphire uses the exact same concept, but with a second 15 inch woofer for additional deep bass power. So the M3 Sapphire has more deep bass power than the M5, but otherwise sounds the same. Both models are passive, dipolar designs.Factory Pricing:
