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 Quintet is the flagship loudspeaker, power and prestige in a 2.5-way floorstander. Parker Quintet is upgradeable to Diamond edition, so with Jorma Statement internal cables it’s one of Marten's best living room speakers.
- Multi-diverse crossover technique
- Passive radiators
- All custom drivers
- Jorma Design cables
- High sensitivity: 93 dB
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.
The cabinet features sleek, tapering sides created from M-board, a multi-layered material offering extreme resonance reduction. Parker Quintet is so resonance-free, it completely disappears within the soundstage. The newly designed cabinet balances visual appeal with low-impact on sound.
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 Quintet a super-refined Marten speaker.
Parker Quintet can be upgraded to Diamond Edition, featuring a pure Diamond tweeter, Jorma Statement internal cables, more advanced crossover components and improved terminals. All Parker models can be elevated to the ultimate in premium loudspeakers.
Designed for the system, four 7.5” bass/midrange ceramic drivers offer a large surface area resulting in a large, precise soundstage and great dynamics. While passive radiators give the control and dynamics needed for Parker Quintet. A speaker of this class demands the ultimate in bass response.
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.
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.
The reduction of resonance has always been important to the design of our cabinets – the right isolation can mean the difference between a good speaker and a great speaker.
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.
