Eden Acoustics TÔMEI Active Loudspeaker System, RRP: £16,890
We are pleased to welcome yet another innovative new brand to the Elite Audio portfolio: Eden Acoustics.
Founders Jean-Pierre Boudreau and Christian Bisson's mission is to "[build] loudspeaker systems that transcend the boundaries of traditional designs with new visions of the modern loudspeaker". After three years of research, they finally created their Open Air Loudspeaker system.
Using the latest technology and the best craftsmanship, the TÔMEI Loudspeaker System offers an outstanding listening experience as well as a stylish talking point within any room.
The TÔMEI started life as an open baffle loudspeaker and after further testing and experimentation, everything was removed apart from the drivers;
"If you measure such a system, you will find that from 400 to 2500 Hz, the midrange driver performs better in all aspects without a baffle with better power response, smoother frequency response and less distortion.
"Over 2500 Hz we are in tweeter territory and baffle or not makes no difference. Below 400 hz. this is another story and at bass levels, a baffle is beneficiary to get more efficiency and dig deeper. In the TÖMEI we solved this by using a stand-alone bass unit that sports a small baffle and sits low near the floor.
"To get omnidirectional bass, we use a low crossover frequency. Our multi-channel DSP controls the bass unit and gets articulate bass down into the 20’s from that 330 mm (13 inches) driver. "
Eden Acoustics use an ultra precise DSP system that can tailor all aspects of the sound, including phase and driver delays.
Balanced and unbalanced analogue inputs are available for all types of source materials meaning you can hook it up to your TV for a fantastic cinema-like experience.
And the best part of the TÔMEI system? It's an active loudspeaker, meaning you can drastically downsize your hi-fi system. Simply plug-in your computer to the USB connector of our ACU-01 control unit and run your preferred HD Audio software application. Use your phone or tablet to control everything with ease.
