The Marlow CE has the same classic-appearance and BBC-style cabinet as the standard Marlow. It also features the same Jordan Eikona and originally there was no intention of refining the design further.
Enter Tom Evans.
Our connection with Tom goes back many years. In the 1990s, he and Ted Jordan collaborated to produce the Acoustic Precision Eikos FR1, a radical, ultra-lightweight loudspeaker that won plaudits around the globe. Tom’s audio amplifiers are legendary, and he continues to use Jordan drive units in their development.
Tom was intrigued by what we were doing with the Marlow, and he told us that he had recently developed exclusive, pure-copper loudspeaker binding posts. During early tests, it was clear that these would offer additional performance advantages. The binding posts are matched to his recommended internal wiring and, together with additional critical damping within the cabinet, these developments resulted in the Marlow CE.
The Marlow CE is available in walnut and rosewood veneer, and can be mounted on the same custom-built floor-stands as for the standard Marlow. The loudspeakers are individually numbered and supplied in matched pairs.
The Marlow CE is hand-built in England.
