NSMT Model 15
The Model 15SE is a much improved version of the Model 15 (formerly NSM Audio Model 15). The NSMT Model 15SE is a two-way, first -order, positive polarity, time-aligned loudspeaker system that reproduces music with the kind of ease, coherence, and exhilaration, that few loudspeakers can match. It is designed to please the most discriminating audiophile or recording engineer. It reproduces music with honesty and transparency, and accurately conveys the emotionalism of the performance.
The Model 15SE builds on the reputation of the Model 15 by using a new woven carbon fiber driver, improved time alignment, positive polarity wiring of the drivers, and a re-worked crossover to improve bass reproduction, broad band neutrality and improved rendering of microdynamics.
After an exhaustive review of twelve of the best small two-way loudspeakers under $2,000, the German magazine Stereo declared the Model 15: “The best speaker in its price range." Fitting testimony to one of the great values in high-end audio.
The Model 15 is gutsy and offers all the legendary magic of the well designed two-way. Although it captures the smallest details, it is warm and smooth. And it produces a wide and deep soundstage with pinpoint imaging. The accuracy of its tonal, timbral and spatial presentation is hard to beat at any price.
The Model 15 is one of those rare loudspeakers that accurately reproduces music to the extent it can make you believe that the performers are right in front of your eyes. Its pinpoint soundstaging makes every position and movement palpable and appear touchable.
If you seek music's essence and soul, and if you revel in acoustical space, the Model 15 is the right speaker for you.
