The next step

To come as close as possible to the original has always been the ambition of Manger Audio. Along this path Josef Manger has accomplished a technological masterpiece: the Manger Sound Transducer. The passive flagship model p2 consistently acts on this maxim and takes another important step in approaching the ideal of time correct and faithful audio reproduction. The p2 open up a new horizon.

Nature as Touchstone

The sudden breaking of a branch, the gentle patter of a summer rain - to faithfully reproduce these sounds and sounds is a difficult task to master. Too fast, too abrupt are the pressure changes in the air. This also applies to percussion or the clapping of an auditorium. Ordinary sound transducers cannot follow the tempo and sound undifferentiated. In addition, these sound events often contain low-frequency components. They are crucial for natural reproduction, but they especially demand the bass precision of a loudspeaker.

Speed is the Key

A precondition on the path to authentic reproduction is time correct and integral rendition. Due to its design the Manger Sound Transducer provides an impulse fidelity, in other words the ability to rapidly track short signals, that is far superior to conventional drivers. The newly developed woofer system of the p2 also achieves an extraordinarily high signal fidelity and perfectly complements the Manger Sound Transducer. The two innovations merge into a uniquely authentic reproduction system.

Deeply Impressive

The p2 woofer is groundbreaking. The patented drivers, developed and manufactured in Germany, features a modern sandwich-type membrane. Two carbon fiber reinforced cellulose layers flank a layer of high-tech foam. The sophisticated material mix combines high inner damping with little weight and extreme rigidity. Partial vibrations and fractured radiation to higher frequencies are thus effectively eliminated. The stable base construction made of aluminum, in conjunction with the innovative Manger cone feet cf1, guarantees a rock-solid stand on any surface.

Rock in the surf

In operation, considerable force is sometimes applied to the loudspeaker housing. If it is stimulated to vibrate, this leads to audible color discoloration. The housing of the p2 is a manifestation of solidity. Inner struts and stiffeners at defined points effectively prevent natural vibrations. The chassis reside in a 38-millimeter (!) strong front and the elegantly rounded edges optimize the radiation behavior. A solid base construction made of aluminum guarantees rock-solid stand on any surface.

Plays perfectly with Devialet and Linn

To bring powerful technology to your passive Manger speaker, the p1 and p2 seamlessly work with both Linn’s Exakt and Devialet’s SAM Processing.
In combination with Linn Exakt, your passive speaker is enhanced with powerful software and performance features, becoming an active speaker.


As a manufacturer, Manger can offer an almost unlimited variety of the finest veneers and color options, including the individual design of housing and base.
You can order nearly every color or veneer in matt, satin finish or Ultra high gloss.
