    Eclipse of Japan, are pleased to announce that the TD-M1 Active 24/192 Desktop Music Monitor / Airplay System, is now for sale on the Apple Online Store.

    The TD-M1 is THE audio accessory for serious Mac users, already in use by many noted musicians and producers, for music making, film soundtrack editing and pure unparalleled listening pleasure.

    Paul Burnip, Eclipse TD Sales Manager commented

    “We have many Apple users as customers and this is a very important step in introducing our new active system to a wider audience. “Many musicians, engineers and producers who create on the Mac, are buying M1’s as the ultimate quality control tool, because no other desktop speaker does the job as well"

    From Fujitsu Ten Eclipse, comes the TD-M1 Active Wireless Airplay Speaker System

    - one box, two speakers, incredible sound

    - wide-ranging wireless and wired connectivity

    - ultimate clarity in a wireless / desktop speaker system

    - full implementation of Eclipse’s noted Time Domain design theory

    - use as Hi-Fi, Desktop Monitor, TV Sound enhancer, PC, Mac, iPhone/Pad/Pod, UPnP and more

    The TD-M1 combines the very latest audio technologies, with the experience garnered from Eclipse’s decade long development of Time Domain speakers and amplifiers. Music enthusiasts, can enjoy the musical expression of the finest recording artists and the warmth of live music, with no need for an in-depth knowledge of technology.

    A cut above - it’s not cheap - it is better

    Most AirPlay Systems and Desktop Speakers are built down to a prices as ‘consumer audio’ The TD-M1 is a very different beast, designed from the ground-up as serious high-resolution Hi-Fi.

    Whatever the source, the TD-M1s deliver music with speed, immediacy, imaging and accuracy unheard of in desktop or wireless systems like this.

    High-Resolution in & out

    Very few speakers have the resolution to take advantage of the new high-res 24/192 and 24/96 music formats. The TD-M1 does, sharing the famous clarity and transparency of the whole Eclipse Time Domain range. "Better In” really does equal "Better Out”

    The sleek aesthetics are not accidental

    Nothing looks like an Eclipse and nothing sounds like an Eclipse, every element of the design is functional, a direct result of the requirements of Time-Domain anti-resonant construction.

    The Electronics

    The digital electronics are built into the base of the right speaker and comprise a 192kHz/24 bit USB interface, an ultra-low distortion non-oversampling DA converter (NOS-DAC), for clearer sound and a small form factor, ultra-high-efficiency Class D digital amp. An advanced circuit design, focused on temporal waveform accuracy, is used for the circuits around the amp IC.

    The Speaker

    - highly engineered Ultra-Fast 8cm single driver design

    - massive magnet structure for an astonishing transient response

    - no crossover to smear the sound

    - no DSP Processing to destroy phase and timing

    - non-resonant composite egg cabinet

    - cabinet effects effectively eliminated for superb clarity

    - cabinet design effectively eliminates diffraction effects

    - high-density zinc internal components with heavy mass anchor

    - alloy stand carries the energy earth path

    - one-touch vertical angle adjustment

    The Sound

    - absolute transparency, purity and clarity

    - a remarkable sense of scale

    - accurate transients to capture the leading edge of notes

    - the most accurate reproduction of human voice

    - probably the world’s finest stereo imaging

    Egg-shaped for a reason

    To varying degrees the sound from most loudspeakers is coloured by the flapping panels and resonance of a box shaped wooden or plastic cabinet. The egg-shaped mineral-loaded resin cabinet of the TD-M1, provides the most rigid form known to nature and the internal construction and design inhibits resonances. All unnecessary energy is earthed through the internal zinc-alloy structure to stand.

    Single Driver

    The use of the single driver, avoids the time and phase distortion associated crossover circuitry and multiple drive units. A highly advanced single full-range drive unit is employed in order to maximise time, phase and impulse characteristics.
