Transmission Megatrend MkIII

Our full frequency open dipole reference-speaker system Megatrend MkII is now upgraded to MkIII status, available in Black Glossy Grand Piano Finish. Gone are the old composite chassis woofers, replaced by brand new proprietary die casted woofers with new suspension, new spiders and a new motor structure. Furthermore the older ribbons are now replaced by a new metal alloy and stronger magnets, resulting in an enhancement of micro-details beyond belief.

Megatrend MkIII represents a landmark in the history of audio. Even since the introduction of the first generation, this has been a true best-seller, appreciated for its unique musicality, high sensitivity and unsurpassed resolution and definition.

With an overall sensitivity of +100dB into a 6 Ohm load, it is an easy drive for any good quality amplifier from 15 Watts(!) and up. The open dipole configuration makes it totally transparent - the limitation will be the listening room itself. If you want it loud, the Megatrends are able to produce up to 129dB at 4.800W music power. If you want it soft, you will find that playing at low levels gives you more detail than you have ever heard before. Maybe the former world renowned jazz musician Red Mitchell said it best, when he stated: "The best loudspeaker you have never heard - you only hear the music!" (No longer available with the old woofers)
