Transcender SeriesFlagship Reference Floorstanders

The Transcender series cabinets are a true example of good form and function, and have been perfected to house the ultimate versions of our best large floorstanders, using some of the very best drivers and components available.  They are very easy on the eye, with their beautiful inwards sweeping sides, harmonious proportions, and the luxurious semi-gloss piano black and beautiful timber finishes. Underneath the pleasing exterior, the non-resonant layered thick panels, strong ribbed structure, curved internal surfaces and unique Transmission Line bass loading combine to result in a particularly uncoloured audio rendition.

Combine these special cabinets and unique design with dual series crossovers using very low d. c. inductors, high voltage non-inductive capacitors, and special care to iron out all ripples and you have truly grand extended range, ultra-smooth speakers, with delicacy, power, accuracy, truthfulness, and a real talent for recreating a seamless living performance with a huge sound stage.

Acoustically, the reality and accurate detail of these superb high end designs makes it very hard to remember you are listening to speakers and not the real musical/visual performance.  The cabinets have been hand crafted to very high standards of artistic beauty  And, in excess of 80 kilograms, with much thought given to their shape and internal structure, they represent the ultimate in performance in our range.

As with all our speakers these three Transcender models compete with other brands two or three times the cost.  This comes from our ingenious designs, dedication to customers and simple business structure, not from any reduction in quality.

All speakers include grilles. All grilles are removable but any speaker can be made without grilles if you request.

Blackwood veneer is standard, others cost extra.

Transcender T88DSMTL
high end double woofer 3-way

Description and Specifications

Price: $7995/pr
Finish: Blackwood or Red Heart Sassafras and semi-gloss piano black
Cabinet: 1250h x 340w x 570d transmission line cabinet curved and bevelled. (base 400w x 620d)
Power Handling: 250 wrms
Nominal Impedance: 8 ohms
Frequency Response: 24 -- 40,000 Hertz +/-2dB with gradual roll-off giving usable response to low 20s

Drivers: 2 x 8 inch alloy cone long throw woofers with phase plug; 170 mm high end papyrus cone midrange; large ribbon tweeter.
Description: This Transcender is similar to the T210DSMTL above, but uses two 8 inch woofers and a single mid-range in a straightforward traditional 3-way arrangement. It is slightly smaller and less powerful but losses nothing else, and is in the same beautiful curved Transcender cabinet. The larger, curved and heavily braced cabinet results in improvements in the depth and cleanliness of bass and the large sound-picture created before you. Just like the T210DSMTL above it is fast, accurate, extended, and faithfully, lucidly, recreates a live sound-stage to envelope you in either a stereo or home theatre system. And then the cabinet itself is a joy to look at and admire (even after the music has finished).
