Teresonic’s new Magus compact loudspeakers combine a unique acoustic design and ultra-high efficiency, for breathtaking sound quality and environment-friendly audio, creating a speaker like no other.
San Jose, CA: Magus, Teresonic’s new compact monitor-class loudspeakers, produce remarkable levels of the highest quality sound with only a few Watts per channel.
“Low power amplifiers including vacuum tubes will sound huge using a fraction of energy compared to power hungry amplifiers and inefficient loudspeakers,” says Mike Zivkovic, President of Teresonic. “Magus is bringing to compact monitors a breed of musicality — the magic of full-range design and ultra-high efficiency — that was just not available before.”
Traditional speakers require over 20 Watts, making Magus one of the most eco-friendly designs available. Magus’ small size matches the most popular compacts, but its ultrahigh performance of 98 dB and unique design surpass them by a wide margin. The coherence and realism produced by full-range, straight through (crossover-less) design sets a new standard for the life-like tonal quality of voices and musical instruments.
Teresonic’s (at http://www.teresonic.com) ultra-high efficiency simultaneously improves the sound quality and reduces energy costs. With a fraction of the power, Magus produces sound that is superior in clarity, coherence, reality and life. “Teresonic’s sound is amazingly natural and organic, with not the faintest hint of coloration,” says Neb Maricic, a baritone who was one of the greatest Mozart Figaros of the day. “They are downright addictive… You can listen to them day in and day out.”
Magus speakers are designed for highest sonic performance, to be used as stand-mounted, bookshelf or tabletop sources. They provide freedom and tolerance to allow positioning close to or away from walls and floors. This makes them uniquely suited for smaller listening rooms or offices. While most speakers are sensitive to precise positioning in the speaker’s “sweet spot”, Magus delivers most of its magic anywhere in the room.
With Magus, form also follows function. Teresonic’s enclosures are beautifully sculpted and individually handcrafted like fine musical instruments. “Have you ever wondered why there are no square violins, trumpets, or acoustic guitars? So why do they make square speakers? Because it requires patience and painstaking attention to detail to make them like we do,” says Zivkovic “Teresonic speakers are designed with the centuries-old proven techniques used in making fine musical instruments, combined with the latest science, materials and technology.”
Teresonic’s Magus speakers retail for $ 3,985 for a pair, with customized speaker stands retailing for $385. Customers get a 30-day Total Satisfaction Guarantee and a full three year warranty. Specifications include a sensitivity of 98dB (1W/1kHz/1m), a bandwidth of 60Hz-22kHz ± 3dB, and a power handling of 1-100 Watts.
