Back in 1998, Martin’s philosophy of simple design and unembellished sound reproduction was encapsulated by the Heritage Series.

Today, Marten has retained that philosophy and refined the details, resulting in speakers that deliver a clean and invisible sound source with dry bass. Everything you expect as a true audiophile.

This year, The Heritage Series is upgraded with new bass units, tweeters, feet, cones, pucks and improved and refined crossover.

Marten Heritage Bird 2

 
marten-heritage-bird_2_pair_portrait-crop.png

The Heritage Bird 2 loudspeaker from Marten, a tribute to jazz legend Charlie Parker, builds upon experience derived from the award-winning Coltrane and Coltrane Supreme loudspeakers. Like both Coltrane models, the Bird 2
employs diamond and ceramic drivers. Ceramic drivers have extreme rigidity and hardness. The new midrange drivers employed in the Bird 2 have resonance damping and laser-drilled holes in the ceramic cone, which simplifies the crossover and gives even lower distortion in the important midrange frequency area. The newly-developed bass drivers in the Bird 2 feature increased air flow baskets that make the sonic performance more dynamic and less distorted.

In addition to its ceramic drivers, the Bird 2 features a newly-developed, custom-made, 26mm diamond tweeter. Diamond is one of the most rigid materials known to man. When applied to driver design, diamond exhibits virtually no resonance, and produces pure, uncolored, distortion-free sound. The crossover components used in the Bird 2 include copper foil coils and silver foil/oil capacitors of the highest quality and most advanced technology.

The cabinet of the Bird 2 is optimized, both in appearance and acoustic design. Non-parallel sides, heavy bracing, and special selected 26mm MDF make it extremely resonance-free.The result is a loudspeaker with a very transparent yet powerful sound, and uniquely high resolution. The Bird 2 is exceptionally distortion-free and detailed, with a large, attractive soundstage.

Marten Heritage Getz 2

The Marten Heritage Getz 2 not only incorporates unique ceramic drivers, but features a newly-developed, custom-made aluminium passive radiator. The passive radiator contributes to a more even and better controlled bass, and creates a realistic, full-bodied sonic performance.

The other Getz 2 drivers employ ceramic membranes, which have the hardness of sapphire. Ceramic drivers have extremely high cone rigidity and hardness. The refined, high-quality crossover components include copper-foil coils and silver-in-oil capacitors.

The Getz 2 produces distortion-free sound that is exceptionally detailed and transparent, with a large, attractive soundstage. The relationship of the Getz 2 relationship to Marten’s Heritage Bird 2 is obvious, both in its appearance and its virtuous musicality.

The Getz 2 can easily be integrated into your living environment, as it is not overly sensitive to placement. The front-firing passive radiator makes it possible to place it near the back wall if necessary. The midrange drivers have resonance damping and laser-drilled holes in the ceramic cone. This simplifies the crossover and provides even lower distortion in the crucial midrange. The Getz 2 cabinet is optimised in both appearance and acoustic design, with non-parallel sides, heavy bracing, and specially-selected 23mm veneered MDF that make it virtually resonance free.

Marten Heritage Duke 2

Small can often be beautiful. The Marten Heritage Duke 2 delivers a beautifully rich and smooth sound—covering frequencies down to 38 Hz—despite its diminutive form factor.

In fact, the Duke 2 sounds as outstanding as the rest of the Heritage Series—provided your room is not too large.

The Duke 2 is a 2-way system, with a newly developed 7" ceramic bass/mid-range driver and a new tweeter, which uses pioneering technology to achieve diamond-like performance. It is the perfect start-up model for your first high-end system. And an excellent choice for the true audiophile whose listening space isn’t enormous.
