Marten Parker Duo Loudspeakers

Finishes:

The new Marten Parker speakers began as an update to their Heritage series, but the upgrades in technology and build were so radical, they created a new series instead.

The Marten Parker Series 

The Parker Duo is a 2-way a true high end stand speaker. Marten craft their stand speakers so well they can even compete with their floorstanding counterparts. Parker Duo is designed for extreme resonance reduction and with passive radiators, it’s able to fill large rooms with powerful, dynamic sound.

  • Multi-diverse crossover technique
  • Passive radiators
  • All custom drivers
  • Jorma Design cables
  • High sensitivity: 88 dB
  • Marten designed stand (optional)

The Parker series comprises of three models, the Parker Trio for modest size rooms or the Parker Quintet for the grandest of rooms each model has the same quality of driver units, cabinet and crossover, even the smallest model the Parker Duo has the ability to command a large living space all with precise soundstage, great dynamics and controlled bass response.

DIAMOND EDITION
Upgrade to elite.

Parker Duo can be upgraded to Diamond edition, featuring a Diamond tweeter, more advanced crossover components, improved terminals and Jorma Statement internal cables. All models in the Parker series can be elevated to the ultimate in premium loudspeakers.

CABINETS
Distortion free; pure and powerful.

The cabinet features sleek, tapering sides created from M-board, a multi-layered material offering extreme resonance reduction. Parker Duo is so resonance-free, it completely disappears within the soundstage. The newly designed cabinet balances visual appeal with low-impact on sound.

CERAMIC DRIVERS
Smaller scale design for bigger results.

Ceramic drivers are custom designed by Leif Olofsson to meet the needs of a loudspeaker in this class. Each unit has a very long linear excursion and utilises the powerful Neodynium magnet system for control. Custom designed components allows a more holistic way of building a system, making Parker Duo a super-refined Marten speaker.

BASS AND MIDRANGE
Full. Controlled. Dynamic.

Designed for the system, the 7.5” bass/midrange ceramic driver offers a large surface area resulting in a large, precise soundstage and great dynamics. While the passive radiator gives the control and dynamics needed for Parker Duo. A speaker of this class demands the ultimate in bass response.

CROSSOVER
A harder working crossover.

A multi-diverse crossover technique was developed through hours of listening and testing, plus rigorous simulation, calculation and measurement. We’ve really put the work in with this crossover, using the best components and precisely tuning it to work with the system.

INTERNAL WIRING
Premium cables for purer sound.

We use Jorma Design internal wiring, for its exemplary quality and performance. Handmade in Sweden, the cables use separate + and – for enhanced shielding and the highest quality Copper. This offers natural, transparent sound; the perfect choice for our speakers.

Cables are integral components, so they must work harmoniously with our precision design and build. Jorma Design delivers exactly what a Marten speaker demands.

STANDS AND FEET
A new level of isolation.

The optional stand is Marten designed so it works in concert with Parker Duo. Three extremely rigid pillars are mounted on a steel base plate which is weighted for stability.

To further reduce resonance, we worked with IsoAcoustics to design and make Marten Isolators. With this precision product, the speaker feels completely isolated from the floor, reducing resonance and distortion – leaving the soundstage free. It also makes for richer, more controlled and dynamic bass.
