Maximum supertweeters

    • In the same way that a sub-woofer extends the low end of your system, Maximum Supertweeters reveal a wealth of detail in the midband and treble. Most striking is the amazing improvement in bass detail.
    • Maximum supertweeters reproduce high and very high frequencies in the most coherent and realistic fashion, delivering a rich harmonic structure that dome tweeters simply can not match.
    • Coherent high frequencies affect the brain both physiologically and psychologically, revealing the full potential of your favorite recordings.
    • Maximum supertweeters enhance and define bass, mid and treble. They are the key to high resolution.

Maximum supertweeters are raising the sense of realism in music by extending the frequency response of conventional hi-fi speakers up to 90kHz. In spite of this, the presence of these frequencies creates a sense of naturalness and reveals detail right down into the bass.

Maximum supertweeters allow you to get utmost pleasure from both digitally and analogue formats by revealing high frequency detail above 6kHz. Even though a CD can not produce information above 20kHz Maximum Supertweeters make the format sound more natural and reveal a wealth of extra detail when compared with dome tweeters. This is because of the much faster response of the ultra-light ribbon diaphragm.

The Maximum Supertweeter works from 6kHz upwards making it better able to produce the leading edge of each transient without time smear. That's why it makes a system sound more relaxed and natural, it can respond to the signal with greater speed and greater accuracy.

What surprises people the most is that they hear in the bass. You might expect the greater sense of ease and openness which is revealed throughout the entire audio tape is nothing short of miraculous.

The Maximum Supertweeter is engineered to work with the 1.5m link cables provided. The Supertweeters are wired in parallel with the main amplifier feed or the tweeter connection at the main speaker. There is a six position level switch which allows for seamless integration with your speakers.

Testimonials

  • It's not often that I write reviews, let alone for HiFi equipment where I have limited technical knowledge. However, what I have heard is the experience of listening to recorded music. I must declare my allegiance to the Townshend brand. I use Glastonbury's 2 loudspeakers, which I've never read to change, Isolda speaker cables and DCT 300 interconnect, It's all used with a Copland amplifier and cd player of good quality. I have decided that a pair of Supertweeters What I'm Looking For? When the Townshend Supertweeters arrived I set them up, very simply done, and just sat down to listen. Perhaps I have had the most positive reviews they made. Literally from the moment the music started I was gripped and then astonished. I am not so easy to get off the hook but there is no such thing as an emotional connection to the music that I had tears in my eyes. I do not exaggerate this. I read one review of super tweeters which suggested that it had a new amplifier. I think it's more than that because my whole system has been transformed. How to clarify the timbre and body of lower strings solo? Well they do and much more besides. I could write pages about the improvements across the audio spectrum, including sound staging, depth, ambience and dynamics. All anyone needs to know is the bottom line. They make recorded music more like real music and in the process pack quite an emotional wallop. Anyone with doubts needs to forget all the debate and just listen.

  • Brinkmann la grange turntable with its10.5 inch arm and Koetsu Jade cartridge, Allnic H 3000 phono stage, Canary 903 pre amp, Radford STA 25 power amp, Quad ESL 57 (One Thing Audio ) and Audiophysica Luna subwoofers. The effect of the SuperTweeter what is impressive as the system has been majored on that. To begin with I had the supertweeters at 3 (based on an online review I read). 2 which had an interesting effect in that the sound stage became notably more layered and textural - which is exactly what I aim for. I have been listening to 20 years in which the vocals have always sounded a bit edgy - despite huge upgrades and substantial financial outlay. For the first time the vocals were sweet and I may have been listening to a different track. I would say it would be a serious sound upgrade.

  • I suppose they are about them, they sound wonderful, I own quad 989 = 92s and they really do not improve the sound, from the bass up!

  • Every speaker should have these! Stunning in every way.

  • 989's is superb, a great combination! I would like to say that I have had the supertweeters for a few weeks!

    Better than you have, so I tried your cables with the tweeters, first with them directly back to the amplifier (instead of piggy back from the spkrs) and what made the tweeters even more fantastic, so I told them my spkr leads must have been very average, so I moved the spkrs closer together and what duly blown away, they were now the most transparent, detailed, natural, open, balanced, uncoloured sound.

  • I'm just writing the supertweeters made a great improvement to my system, and of course, I'm keeping them.

  • ESL-63 quads, and recently got a pair of horns over the Colorado Audio Fest.
    My initial impression of your speakers on the quads was not favorable. No matter what I did, my speakers simply sounded more natural without your tweeters. However, the other day, I went back and re-read the instructions, with particular emphasis on the issue of speaker phasing. Much to my surprise, and delight, reversing the leads from the tweeters into the quads (positive of tweeter connected to negative of quad, etc.) did the trick. Apparently when connected in normal fashion the tweeters were out of phase with the quads. I would now enthusiastically endorse ESL-63 WHEN connected as noted. I sent this so that you could alert other quad lovers.

  • Tweeter in Titanium finish and have to say they are fantastic.

  • I recently purchased a pair of SMC (after gentle persuasion for a trial), the results are amazing, the other people have discovered, but the effects are instant , Even on setting 1 the soundstage opens out, quite how to improve the low frequencies I can not work out but they just do! After many years of hi-fi "tweaking" this required very little effort and time in setting up, anyone who thinks that's a lot to spend on supertweeters alone think again, I use PMC's OB1 speakers with a rel sub, the addition of super Tweeters means I have a A34500. speaker package, everyone who has heard them said the sound is an improvement over many speakers 2-3 times that amount. Thank you for a wonderful product, I can heartily recommend them to anyone who loves music, even if they think their systems are perfect!
