Unboxing 1st New Eclipse TD307MK3 in N. America, revised with greater bass extension

Working with Eclipse TD has been very refreshing as this is a company that tells you exactly what they are going to do and does it to the tee with such grace.  Both Pandora and I have been big fans of their speaker line from unique technologies that stemmed from the life’s work of its then Design Chief, Hiroshi Kowaki.

We both use the Eclipse TD508 monitors for our go-to listening pleasure at our desktop.  Thanks to these workhorses, the COVID19 year of zoom meetings and video calls was made so much more pleasurable.  While there is no comparison to actual human contact, these monitors provided such a realistic and fast sound that oftentimes we forget the attendees are not in the same room with us.  When phone calls come in, unlike most desktop monitors, the details of the sound do not wane when we lower the volume to have a conversation.  See a recent correspondence from a new owner of a pair of TD508’s.

Yesterday, the business manager sent us advanced units (one black and one white pair) of their new TD307MK3 along with their beautiful new brochures.  With frequency response at 80 Hz – 25 KHz (-10dB) vs its predecessor with 100 Hz – 25 KHz, the new TD307MK3’s vow to deliver much noticeably more bass extension with extended musical enjoyment to listeners.  These are available in black and white only and production units begin shipping July this year.

The prospect of being able to listen to our favorite music with a new spin put both of us in such a great mood that we decided to share the fun we were having while unboxing the units.  Stay tuned for more sharing.
