Audiophile miniaturization – small, but perfectly formed

ECLIPSE TD speakers bring the technology used by sound engineers and musical artists to the small speaker. Sound theory, award winning design, technical know-how, carefully chosen material and a precision attention to detail go into achieving a highest sound quality - at an affordable price.

Although it is classed as a small speaker system, the TD307II's construction and technology is as superior as our larger models. The driver unit has been developed to achieve better impulse response and a wider frequency range, vibration resistance has been improved to provide better low-frequency response, and it can be mounted in any direction. You'll experience a speaker that's out of its class.

Concept

Once, listening to music was all about performance. In fact, the first home audio system made nearly a century ago, were aimed at recreating the live performance experience. But over time this changed. Audio equipment came to focus more on the technicalities f reproducing a wide range of frequencies accurately, rather than recreating the sound and the spirit of the actual performance itself.

ECLIPSE TD, however, recreates pure performance to reveal the very essence of the artists’ passion and craft. We believe that music should be reproduced just as it was created, with nothing added or reduced.

Our unique Time Domain theory* technologies achieve the most accurate sound reproduction

Custom Full Range Driver

The material for the drive unit has been selected to provide the optimum performance from the cone. It needs to be extremely light with great elasticity, combined with high radial rigidity. It is supported by a highly flexible surround and damping system in a magnetic circuit to provide precise piston movement.

Mass Anchor

A high mass, conical anchor weight has been placed on the back of the drive-unit magnet. This structure acts as a mass sink, which 'grounds' the drive-unit ensuring the ideal piston movement.

Eliminating Vibrations & Acoustic Solutions

In order for its floating enclosure to be effective we have achieved an air-tight seal, whereby the drive-unit is sealed to the enclosure, eliminating the transmission of unwanted vibrations. This requires a permanent bond combined with a flexible coupling.

Magnetic Circuit

To make the most of the custom driver, it must be driven correctly by the magnet, which effectively the engine of the speaker. The ECLIPSE TD speakers incorporate a specially designed circuit to ensure a high magnetic flux density, creating a powerful magnet with an optimized voice-coil.

Diffusion Stay

Colouration of sound reproduction will occur if the speaker cone is allowed to cause the speaker enclosure to vibrate. ECLIPSE TD speakers minimize this issue with a sophisticated 'diffusion stay' whereby the drive-unit is held in a floating mechanism so that no residual vibration can be transferred from the unit itself to the enclosure.

Egg-Shaped Form

The internal standing and diffraction waves generated at the front baffle edges are largely eliminated by adopting a rigid yet tactile egg-shaped form, in which no two radial surfaces are in the same plane.

* Time Domain theory is an audio theory proposed by Hiroyuki Yoshii, President of TimeDomain Corporation.

The three elements of ECLIPSE TD speakers that make the difference

Clarity

Hearing all the details clearly

Through ECLIPSE TD speakers you can actually appreciate the quality of sound that makes a Stradivarius an exceptional violin. You can hear the artistry of a guitarist's fingers, manipulating the strings. Without any distortion there is more of the natural sound to experience and enjoy.

Space Reproduction

Painting an accurate acoustic image of the recording's time and space

When a speaker doesn't add its own resonance, the speaker disappears from the scene altogether and what you hear and experience is the three dimensional stereo image. Natural sound occurs in the space around you, just as it would in the best concert seat or on the set of a film.

Speed

Accurate reproduction of rhythm

Rhythm depends upon recreating the precise beginning and ending of a sound. Our technology captures this pin point timing because the driver can react instantaneously to move the air, and then dampen this movement immediately for the exact timing of every note.
