Model 30M upgraded with sweet sounding TPX driver

The Model 30M has been upgraded with a sweet sounding clear cone 7.5 inch TPX concentric driver array.

NSMT Loudspeakers 30M

Although expensive, TPX is one of the best sounding cone materials available. The previous 6.5 inch concentric driver array that was used in the 30M was legendary for its musicality, imaging, and soundstaging. The new driver array features an elaborately reinforced driver basket that improves imaging stability and reduces cone distortion. Coupled with the new TPX cone material, the new driver array makes the 30M provide a even more engaging, sophisticated, musical performance, featuring an even more detailed and exteded soundstage.

The Chorus: Now with TL-ABC Transmission Line Bass Tuning

NSMT Chorus
READ REVIEW

 As of December 2017, all Chorus speakers feature TL-ABC transmission line tuning. Changes in the demensions of the Chorus cabinet have also been made. TL-ABC is a way of lowering bass response by fine tuning the transmission line's response by adding a device (TL-ABC) to the end of the transmission line. TL-ABC can lower bass response by as much as one octave. For example, if the low bass response of a speaker is 50 Hz, TL-ABC can potentially lower its bass response to 25 Hz.  As a result the TL-ABC application, the latest Chorus  has noticeably more lower base than the previous model. TL-ABC is proprietary NSMT Loudspeaker technology.

 

Positive Feedback reviews the Model 100

NSMT Model 100

"... the deepest most powerful ... drum whacks that I have ever heard." " ...the minutest of detail without fatigue."
"...built like the proverbial Abrams tank."

Our thanks to Francisco Duran of Positive Feedback for this thorough and insightful review of the the Model 100. Among his comments:

"...detail and dynamics sounded natural and not overdone for the sake of reproducing good stereo."

"These speakers have the ability to wring out the minutest of detail without fatigue."

"...the M-100 clearly showed me just how deficient my regular speakers handle deep bass on movies."

"Their reproduction of timber and tone is very natural and very realistic. And they are built like the proverbial Abrams tank. Mix that all together and you have one hell of a musical speaker very capable of easily drawing you into whatever you listen to with the greatest of ease."

(Francisco Duran , Positive Feedback, Issue 92, 07-01-2017)

One of the strengths of the Model 100 is that it can be driven extremely well by low powered and inexpensive amplifiers because of its built in active subwoofers and the efficiency of the monitor section. To prove the point Francisco Duran discribes how the NSMT modified Lepai amplifer outclassed all his reference amps driving the Model 100. He says:

"I heard an accurate tonal balance, natural timbres, nice decay of instruments and I could play the system as loud as I wanted with this little amp in the system thanks to the efficiency of the woofer/tweeter section of the M-100. Kicking in the subwoofers was icing on the cake. For sheer irony and bang for the buck, this was the best amp I used with the M-100's. Save yourself some money and invest in some kind of remote for the little Lepai because it doesn't come with one. While you're at it go and tell the emperor he is naked. This little amp can cook and it thoroughly embarrassed the hell out of the amps I have laying around my house."

(Francisco Duran , Positive Feedback, Issue 92, 07-01-2017)

Imagine, audiophile nervana with the Model 100 and the little NSMT Lepai.
