** This Ad is Marked as SOLD by seller and cannot be responded to. **

This ad is for 1 demo set of Tune Audio Marvel speakers. Tune Audio is a manufacture in Greece who only builds 4 different speaker models from $400000.00 down to $12000.00. The Marvels are the 2nd speaker in the Tune Audio line up and retail cost is $28000.00 Canadian funds plus taxes. Tune Audio has been building speakers for over 30 years and the owners wife is a professional concert pianist who regularly plays in their home, so to say these speakers sound like a live instrument, would be an understatement. This is one of the most musical sounding speakers I have heard and I have had over 400 different speaker models through my home. If you put nice electronics behind this speaker with great cabling, than this could be your last set of speakers. The Marvels sound more like a live instrument than a speaker. These speakers are very revealing but have zero brightness. I have never heard a horn speaker do what these speakers can do and I have owned a lot of horn speakers. Very open sounding but zero brightness. Lots of reflections in the pictures but zero marks.

Tune Audio website; THE PURITY OF A SINGLE DRIVER… WITH A BOOST.
High quality 8″ wide range driver for low & mid frequencies upgraded in house and 1″ compression driver with titanium diaphragm for high frequencies.
MARVEL, are a two way design, compact enough to house a back loaded bass horn loading a wide range 8″ driver. Bass horn fires to the floor and it’s built of grade A, 13 layer Baltic birch plywood. Mid frequencies are radiated directly by the cone while the high frequencies are handled by our proprietary epoxy compound tractrix horn.

Crossovers are of 1st order and located on the bottom of the bass horn well away from driver’s magnetic fields with components hard wired for best contact. All internal wiring are custom made of high purity OFC copper with waxed cotton insulation. Brass bracing parts with felt acoustic isolation are used to minimize vibrations transfer on contacts of the horns.

High frequencies horn is located on the side of the bass horn mechanically time aligned for a time coherent result.

User can adjust the level and beaming of the high frequencies horn to fine tune MARVEL to the listening room and position.

Tune Audio Marvel website:
• Exceptionally coherent 2-way horn without any transitional wrinkles between midrange and treble.
• Very authentic vocal reproduction not just for a horn speaker. Classically trained singers have real bravura moments as can certain singer/songwriters and even the occasional Pop star.
• The midband is neutral but not cool and in living not oppressive colours without tendency for Baroque excess.
• The treble is smoother than crisp, more integral than pronounced. Unless aimed face on, there's no glassiness or nervy harshness. There's even a narrow ±2dB user adjustment.
• Bass exhibits rare elasticity which is quick, bouncy and nicely dry. There's no upper bass contour but sufficient reach for tuba or double bass. Only very low synch bass unmasks the limits of the mid/bass units.
• These horns excel at dynamics as does the vast majority of their kind. Impulses are quick and pressurized but this design wasn't groomed for maximal stage SPL.
• Soundstaging is generous of width well outside the speakers. Subjective stage height is very realistic.
• Amplification choice is quite uncritical and both valves and transistors may apply. Whilst little power is sufficient, even muscle amps can work.
• Fundamentally solid workmanship did here and there betray its origins.

Part of a 6Moon review;
No less convincing was power soprano Diane Damrau who, as Konstanze in Mozart's Entführung aus dem Serail, asks us to believe her determination and sacrifice when she claims to willingly embrace any terror rather than betray her beloved Belmonte. Here the Greek horns had to track an enormously broad dramatic arc which the singer traces from pianissimo to shattering coloratura; and well up to the task they were without filtering out any tension. Yet the typical itch for the remote to turn down soprano peaks didn't occur because this treble remained free of unnatural bite. And male vocals? Unperturbed yet far from boring was the sonorous Christy Moores whilst covering Pink Floyd's "Shine on your crazy Diamond". The Marvels recreated the necessary chestiness to have me 'see' that despite more than one documented crisis, this already 72-year old Irishman had by now made peace with life. Yes, that's how deeply the Greek horns connected me with various singers; more even than my usual German Acapella horns manage. The Marvels were stunningly convincing in how they approached the human voice. Granted, I surprise myself here by singing the praises of vocal realism whilst reviewing a speaker breed widely believed to be bedeviled by colourations. Clearly I noticed nothing of the sort. In fact, surprising neutrality from the midband on up high into the top registers seemed to be the bedrock upon which the Tune Audios built their vocal strengths.

There are many other reviews and they can be found on the Tune Audio website.

The finish is an upgraded high gloss Madagascar finish and the horn is pearl white (this finish was a $3000 upgrade). They are almost 5 feet tall and placement can be directly in the corners of your room or about 2-3 feet out from the front wall. The horn angle is adjustable, depending on your listening distance from the speakers. They weigh approximately 100 lbs each and the wooden crate that both speakers comes in weighs 64 lbs. I can have them shipped anywhere in Canada at buyers expense for $550.00. The asking price is all in except shipping cost.

Bob 519-619-9924 Local pick up also possible in Whitby Ontario.
