Music is more than a collection of notes, tones and bars - it combines creativity, art and passion in a temporal context. Temporal perfection is the framework of the music - in the original as in the reproduction. The Manger s1 active loudspeakers follow this choreography more consistently than any other loudspeaker and are thus able to reproduce music unadulterated and holistically.
Time of maturity
Faithful reproduction has been the goal of Manger Audio for more than 50 years. All the knowledge, all the experience of research, engineering and craftsmanship over these years are reflected in the Manger s1 sound systems. Their timeless design is an elementary part of the overall construction. The masterfully crafted housing offers the electronics and chassis the working conditions that are crucial for perfect reproduction.
Design and technology in harmony
Their attractive shape cleverly hides the effort and meticulousness that goes into every detail of a Manger s1. An ultra-stable frame inside the loudspeaker prevents sound-damaging resonances from the cabinet walls and standing waves in the interior. The chassis are meticulously embedded in a 1,5" millimeter (!) thick front baffle and each has its own closed compartment. Generously rounded housing edges reduce sound diffraction, optimize the radiation behavior and underline the timeless elegance of these exceptional loudspeakers.
Under the sign of the star - the Manger sound transducer
Achieving top performance means leaving the beaten track and going new ways. Conventional loudspeaker chassis were quickly ruled out for Manger in his search for time-correct reproduction. The development of a sound transducer that does not suffer from the systemic errors of conventional chassis resulted in the patented Manger sound transducer. This innovative system is world-wide in the disciplines of time-accurate reproduction and signal fidelity without comparison. A powerful woofer in the Manger s1 seamlessly complements the lowest octaves and offers sufficient reserves to effortlessly fill large rooms with euphonic sound.
Ellaborated in every detail
No element of the s1 has been left to chance. As Manger puts it: Even the smallest component is of critical importance as part of a chain that is only as strong as its weakest link. The chassis not only are attached to the cabinet with durable threaded screws, but the amplifier and control electronics as well. The electronics housing consists of diligently crafted, almost resonance-free aluminum and butts up seamlessly to the loudspeaker enclosure. The cables are fed in through a generous recess at the bottom to avoid bending. The solid socket construction of the s1 models stands on adjustable cone feets and makes perfect contact with the floor.
Strength and comfort
Uncompromisingly designed as an active loudspeaker, each Manger s1 driver unit has its own powerful analogue amplifier that is optimally tailored to its area of application. With a bandwidth of 250 kilohertz, the high frequency amplifier allows the Manger sound transducer to fully exploit its unique potential. Modern, analogue filters allow the Manger s1 to be conveniently adapted to the installation, the spatial conditions or personal listening preferences. Intelligent protective circuits always guarantee maximum operational safety.
Unique in sound, as diverse as life
Thanks to their elegant shape, the Manger s1 fit harmoniously into any ambience, whether classic or modern. In the finish, you decide on the finishing touches. White, gray or black underline the technical note of the speakers - but Manger is also happy to manufacture the housing according to your individual color requirements. Benefit from the possibilities that only a highly specialized manufacturer can offer.
Manger regards loudspeakers as holistic structures and components of everyday life. Manger therefore offers a wide range of colors in glossy or matt, such as a diverse selection of the finest veneers and enables perfect integration into the personal ambience.
