OFF - FOR SALE: Mark and Daniel Maximus Diamond Plus
Rare and awesome Mark and Daniel Maximus Diamond + speakers in starry black up for sale. The Diamond + are a nice upgrade from other small bookshelf speakers I've had in the past like the KEF LS50, Totem Sky, Ref 3a Dulcet, Harbeth P3ESR etc.. Posting as my 22 inch stands are not suitable. I advise anyone looking to purchase the Diamonds to have 25 inch or higher stands, it's imperative for proper listening.
The Diamonds were Mark and Daniel's first offering from the premium plus line of speakers. Upgrades include the superb Dreams-4a AMT driver that allows the crossover point to be lowered to 700Hz, the SX5.5q-1.0 5.5" woofer raised excursion from 0.75" to 1" and lowered the frequency response down to 42Hz, the marble enclosure was reinforced, a diamond shaped panel was designed for effectively reducing diffractional sound, crossovers were upgraded as well.
The 700Hz crossover point allows the Diamond + to have a 50/50 ratio so the tweeter and woofer each become responsible for roughly 5 octaves. The sound is refined, open, clear, transparent and dynamic with superb tone. The bass and sound stage are very large for a speaker this size, larger than some small tower speakers I've had in the past. The overall quality of sound is similar to great companies like ATC although the presentation is quite different. To my ears they sound like a high end studio monitor. Quality power should be considered mandatory with the Diamond + as they will reflect the sound signature of associated gear. With a neutral or warm setup and high quality recordings the Diamond + will likely exceed any expectations you have for a speaker this size, or price.
There are 2 small scuffs on the corian on top of one speaker and there is mild marking on the bottom from stands (pics included) not a big deal but should be mentioned. I'd rate condition between 7-8. Pics don't do Mark and Daniel speakers justice, they are very nice looking in person. Speakers ship in 2 boxes so shipping estimate is for one box only. Local buyers are welcome to test the speakers and confirm they are working but I no longer give demos. Cash/EMT payment only, buyer pays all shipping.
