* Wireless music playback
* Simple installation
* Stereo soundstage allows you to locate all of the musicians in your favorite band

* AirPlay delivers wireless or wired music playback at high resolution (up to 24/192) from any computer or smart phone.

How does one go about getting plugged into the loaner program?

Disregard that question. I sunk so quickly into the narrative on the product I missed the email address.

Hi All,

 

Thank you for your interest in the Eclipse TD-M1 speakers!

 

Here are the Eclipse TD-M1 loaner program rules:

 

We have 2 pair of the speakers available for loan. We will be sending 1 white and 1 black speaker so you can see what they look like. You will receive the speakers along with a music sampler memory stick for use for 1 week.  So 7 days after you receive the Eclipse TD-M1 speakers you will be required to pack them as they arrived to you along with the memory stick (feel  free to copy the music) to the next loaner recipient. That shipping is at your cost. You will also be required to write a short review on your experience with the speakers. I am really expecting you to do this!

 

We will need you to email us at todd@ttvjaudio.com your Name, address, phone number, and Head-Fi  user name.

 

You will be notified when it is your turn to receive them. We have a rather long list of those wanting to participate and we will do everything we can to insure you all get a chance to listen to them as quickly as possible.

 

Todd

Dumb question alert :

 

Is that loaner program open to international participants ?

post #11 of 77
Mine seem fine...

So any recommendations from Todd or anyone as to how to power these suckers? I have a wide enough variety of options of hooking these bad boys up.

The claim that this will match something multiples of $ more is intriguing.

 

I am interested but wondering about the 70hz and up frequency range. I don't know of anything $2600 (just two multiples) that has bass extension only to 70hz. Anyone tried to integrate these with a subwoofer - how does one go about it as these are active speakers?  

 

70hz is really insufficient low frequency extension for me but with a good sub, would work. 

 

I do assume that these have very high resolution. 

 

Anyways, interested but have not taken up the offer to test yet.  Asking questions to get a sense of what these will do. 

 

Thanks,

UL

This looks really interesting. I'm pretty much a complete newbie when it comes to speakers, let alone "near-field" speakers, but I hope to get into them eventually when speakers are more of an option for me. Are participants required to write a review or anything? Is there a preferred shipping method? i.e. 100% insurance, Fedex vs USPS, etc.

Oh wait, never mind. I didn't see this post.

Question: Does the 1/8th inch jack input BYPASS the internal DAC?  Or does it still go through the DAC like the KEF X300?  

 

The KEF X300 is very articulate and has high resolution. As both are either single driver or concident drivers, it would be interesting to compare this to the KEF.

I have a similar question. Is there a way to use them as passive loudspeakers, ie, hook them up to my receiver? Or do they only function as powered near-fields.

I'm sure that the 1/8 inch jack bypasses the DAC, as that's an analog input. The only question is how well it'll play with various external DACs.

Edit, oh pooey, looks like they don't play with android over wireless, that's a shame. It looks like all wireless tests will be with my super old 3GS, or girlfriends 4S...
