Music Hall Debuts first Loudspeaker Product

The Marimba loudspeaker from Music Hall features a MDF cabinet that houses a 1-inch silk dome tweeter and 5 1/4-inch polypropylene woofer that work in tandem to help the speaker reproduce a frequency response of 50Hz to 35kHz.


Music Hall says its new Marimba two-way loudspeaker is rated to have a 6-ohm impedance and a sensitivity level of 87dB. The company adds the speaker can handle 75 watts of power and it provides a frequency response of 50Hz to 35kHz.

Long before two-channel, stereo became fashionable again the New York-based company Music Hall  had developed and marketed a line of affordable CD players, turntables, cartridges, digital-to-analog converters (DACs) and other products that are designed to meet the sonic attributes that audiophiles crave at prices that are acceptable to a mainstream, non-audiophile consumer.

During the recently completed audio enthusiast Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF) show the company demonstrated how consumers and dealers can assemble a good sounding audio system that doesn’t cost a lot of money. In its room the company exhibited a $3,500 system that included its Creek evo 50a integrated amp, with its Music Hall mmf-5.1se turntable set up with a Music Hall Cruise Control 2.0 turntable power supply and speed control, and a Music Hall 15.2 DAC. Rounding out the system was a pair of its new $349 Miramba two-way bookshelf loudspeakers that were engineered through traditional scientific methods and real-world listening evaluations.

The Miramba bookshelf speaker is designed to provide clean and clear sound with aesthetics that allow it to blend into a variety of home interiors. Music Hall says the speaker utilizes a MDF (medium density fiberboard) enclosure that is heavily braced to eliminate cabinet resonances, and internally it incorporates a 1-inch silk dome tweeter with a neodymium magnet, as well as a 5 1/4-inch polypropylene woofer and bullet-style dust cap. Music Hall adds that a complex crossover network that features high-purity copper internal wiring and a rear-mounted tuned port helps the speaker to reproduce a frequency response of 50Hz to 35kHz. The 11 inch by 6.6 inch by 8.7 inch 6-ohm speaker also has a rated sensitivity level of 87dB and a power handling capability of 75 watts.
