Over the last 60 years Doug Brady has brought you the some of the best speakers from the UK and around the world, so we are proud to introduce 'Marten' loudspeakers to our collection.
Marten speakers are designed and crafted in Sweden using exclusive technology and fine materials. Marten speakers use ceramic speaker cones and in their very best speakers diamond tweeters. Pure Diamond is the ultimate material for speaker membranes. Used in the high-frequency range, its stiffness-to-weight ratio and internal sound velocity are unsurpassed. Using Ceramic in the lower-frequency drivers is light, yet extremely rigid, making it one of the best materials for speaker membranes offering a level of clarity that is the holy grail for high end speaker cones.
Marten was founded by Leif Mårten Olofsson in Sweden in 1998, but the story goes back further. In the early 1900’s, Leif’s grandfather Josef Olofsson built violins using Stradivarius as a benchmark. An instrument that was played by Mårten Larsson, his maternal grandfather. In the 70’s, Leif made his first speakers in the family home. A hobby which he was keenly interested in from an early age.
From the first speaker Mingus, the product range has grown in to Five series, a recording studio and a record label. The company was born out of passion and has grown steadily, gaining success and respect ever since. Marten is still a family business today, run by Leif and his brothers, Jörgen and Lars Olofsson.
