“Sounding fast, tight and uncannily well-timed, the Eclipse TD508MK3 is a rare hi-fi loudspeaker that has been clearly designed for music enjoyment and a temporally authentic sound, rather than blindly ticking the usual textbook boxes. Married to a good amplifier these Eclipse speakers can open your ears to the purity of single-driver musical bliss.”
In this new review Andrew explains what Eclipse’s Time Domain philosophy sets out to achieve:
“… focused on the timing accuracy of music rather than the widest possible bandwidth…
There are manifold tidyings to the sound, the kinds of details that allow musicians to spot the differences between different designs and vintages of concert grand pianos for instance.
It is in the leading edges of notes that so much information about an instrument can be heard, and this is where the Eclipse speaker seems to reward in its rendering of transients so faithfully.”
