We are excited to announce the availability of our new Model 100 loudspeakers. Those of you who have followed NSMT Loudspeakers closely will notice some similarity to the Model 100M loudspeaker that was offered in our Mastering Series. In fact, the Model 100 is inspired by the design of the Model 100M. The Model 100M is now discontinued as its performance is surpassed by the new Model 100 which is now offered in our performance series of positive polarity loudspeakers.
Our approach to designing the Model 100 was to design a no-compromise, high resolution, musical loudspeaker that checks off nearly every box in the holy grail of loudspeaker performance. As a result, the Model 100 is a time coherent, minimum phase, positive polarity, hybrid design combining a two way acoustic suspension monitor section with a bandpass subwoofer section that is informed by the design of our highly acclaimed 15 EXP subwoofer.
The Model 100 features a 1 &1/8 inch hand coated textile dome tweeter, an 8 inch broad band woven carbon fiber driver and a 10 inch paper cone subwoofer. The tweeter is positioned where it is perfectly timed aligned with the carbon woofer driver. The bandpass subwoofer is vented to the front of the cabinet for seamless integration.
What makes the 100M resolution exceptional and its performance electrifying is that the broad band carbon fiber driver is crossover-less and covers the fundamental frequency range of most instruments and voices from 35 Hz to 4,750 Hz. Only the pipe organ has fundamental frequencies above this range. There are no crossover induced phase or frequency abnormalities to muck up the sound in the fundamental frequencies range. The tweeter covers the harmonics of instruments and voices from 4,7500 Hz to 20,000 Hz. The tweeter's output is seamlessly integrated with the carbon fiber driver's with a 6 dB slope. The subwoofer provides low bass reinforcement from 20 Hz to 200 Hz. All three drivers are wired in positive polarity to preserve the waveform of the original music source.
The Model 100 is a melding of our extensive experience building two-way loudspeakers and bandpass subwoofers. It has the magical imaging, resolution, soundstaging that only the best time coherent, minimum phase, positive polarity, two-way acoustic suspension loudspeaker can achieve. Combined with the articulate, dynamic performance of our 15EXP subwoofer, the Model 100's performance is hard too beat.
The Model 100 is available as passive speakers or with active subwoofers. The passive version costs $8,995 per pair. The active version of each speaker has a 200 watt RMS amplified subwoofer with adjustable crossover, volume, and phase controls. A pair of active Model 100 costs $9,995.
The standard finish for the Model 100 is satin black top and bottom panels with black cloth applied as a veneer. The deluxe finish is satin black with red birch side panels. Because we manufacture our own cabinets we can offer the Model 100 with a custom finish of your choice.
The Model 100 is made to order with a delivery time of two to three weeks.
We are sold out of the NSMT modified Lepai amplifier. We plan to resume production of the amplifier.
We are shipping NSMT Modified Amplifiers as of 9/1/14. In addition to all the previous upgrades, the new amplifiers feature cabinets that are more beautiful and more finely crafted.
