The most refined compact loudspeaker for high-resolution audio sources.
In the past decade, the world of high-end audio has evolved dramatically, with the prevailing factors being the rapid pace of change in the current economic ecosystem as well as the unparallelled development in today's mobile-accessible, socially enabled Internet. These are undoubtedly the forces behind the unbelievable level of continuous advancement in high-end audio technology we're currently witnessing. For example, whether in a personal sense or on the broader level of public arena, cloud-based music services are now the new norm; and to think that not that long ago downloadable music was widely regarded as the best thing that ever happened to the music listening experience. We've come a long way indeed.
A central concern emerging from all of this upheaval, more evident and apparent then before, is: Are high performance audio gears, which are pricier than ever in today's environment, capable of meeting – or even dare exceeding – the information-abundant expectation of a new generation of cost-conscious audiophiles?
Since the introduction of the 2012 CES Innovation Award winning Finale series, ENIGMAcosutics has been widely recognized as an innovative force with unmatched talent in loudspeaker design. Now, ENIGMAcoustics is proud to present its latest creation in high-resolution music playback, and by far the most refined compact loudspeaker ever conceived: the Mythology series.
Both acoustically and aesthetically, Mythology is truly one of a kind compact loudspeaker. The woofer is custom designed by ENIGMAcoustics for the pure purpose of delivering the lowest distortion while delivering the most dynamic performance possible. The audio effects of Mythology is greatly enhanced by employing a tweeter with exceptional dome size covering mid-range and smooth rollover filter for minimum phase distortion and time domain accuracy. Utilizing carefully selected components and cabinet made of heterogeneous materials, Mythology is a high-performance loudspeaker committed to an absolute maximum level of self-regulating color reduction. Simply stated, Mythology is poised to be recognized as one of the most visually stunning speakers ever designed with an unsurpassed sound ever created in its class.
At the same time, Mythology is designed to work seamlessly alongside the state of the art Sopranino electrostatic super tweeters by ENIGAcoustics. A separate enclosure housing the super tweeter driver is put in place in order to minimize coloration and distortion induced by vibration of the main loudspeaker. When paired with Sopranino,the effects of Mythology is immensely amplified to meet the high-quality audio standards set by today's high-resolution media sources.
Catering to the new generation of audiophiles, the Mythology series is also available in both active and wireless versions. Together, the Mythology and Sopranino series, for the enjoyment of modern high-resolution recordings at the highest level, will forever redefine the music listening experience.
|Power and Persuasion
The Mythology M1 represents a significant step forward in mini monitor loudspeaker design. The most striking, and telling, aspect of its design is the seamless blending of dynamic drivers with an electrostatic super tweeter in an augmented 2-way configuration. The transition between the dynamic components and the electrostatic tweeter is accomplished via a phase coherent first order crossover, simplified to allow the soft dome mid / HF driver to roll off acoustically, with no inductive reactance to electrically taper its response. The result is incredible transparency, inner detail, and enhanced ambience retrieval.
As the second ENIGMAcoustics product to embody the company’s patented Self-Bias Electrostatic (SBESL™) Technology, Mythology M1’s design eliminates the need for an external AC source to produce a polarizing voltage. SBESL™ circuitry, instead, derives the bias voltage from the signal itself.
Woofer and mid /HF driver designs were the result of an extensive evaluation of materials, over a year of design and refinement, all with the delicate integration of their attributes with those of the electrostatic driver as the ultimate mission. No detail was overlooked. And while Mythology M1 exhibits excellent measurements in the lab and generates superb numbers, its sonic performance is something that simply must be heard to be appreciated.
