Mingus Quintet 2


Confident control.
Mingus Quintet 2 has five drivers with immaculate control and power, including a pure diamond tweeter, pure ceramic mid-range and aluminium sandwich bass domes. We’ve also geared the first order crossover for a more open, clean and dynamic sound.

Resonance control is greatly improved with an advanced damping mat and solid wood tops and bottoms for a more neutral cabinet. Marten Isolators further reduce resonance by separating the cabinet from the supporting surface.

Our second generation Mingus Quintet 2 has strong foundations of proven design to build on. Using the CELL technology drivers that the Mingus series relies on, it’s full-range, with deep bass and wide dynamics.

With every upgrade I listen a lot, not only for what can be improved, but what should remain to keep the sonic character true

Pure and brilliant.
Pure diamond is the ultimate material for speaker membranes – that’s why we use a Cell diamond tweeter from Accuton. In the high-frequency range, its stiffness-to-weight ratio and internal sound velocity are unsurpassed.

The sonic character of our diamond tweeter is not what you might expect. Our crossover has been carefully designed to bring out the pure and clear sound of this precious stone, softening any harshness.

Diamond is also the best heat conductor known to man, which is essential for loudspeaker membranes, providing the best heatsink for the voice coil – resulting in high power handling and very low compression.

Advanced tech, natural sound.
Stiff ceramic is light, yet extremely rigid, making it one of the best materials for speaker membranes – it’s also known as Sapphire.

Our ceramic domes have a high internal damping factor, due to a refined electrochemical process. The membrane has a high material resonance frequency, meaning distortion is minimal. This offers a level of clarity that is perfect for high end speaker domes.

Low frequencies. Low distortion.
Cell bass driver units have long excursion, extremely low distortion levels and a hidden surround. Made of aluminium sandwich honeycomb, the drivers offer rich, dynamic bass performance with a powerful presentation.

Form and function unified.
Mingus Quintet 2 is tapered to create less sound reflections and a sleek form. Crafted with the finest materials, it is finished with solid wood tops and bottoms to reduce resonance.

We use specially selected, medium-density fibreboard with optimum rigidity to create high-quality, resonance-free cabinets. The internal structure and bracing keep the cabinet rigid, whilst inside the resonance is further dampened with advanced materials.

Each cabinet is finished with precision veneer and lacquering. The lacquer is carefully built up of 7 layers, each hand-polished in between drying.

Natural charm with neutral sound.
The warm quality of wood contrasts and compliments the gloss Piano Black cabinet, while offering further stability. This natural material carefully balances the design and function of Mingus Quintet 2.

Premium cables for pure sound.
We use Jorma internal wiring, for exemplary quality and performance. Handmade in Sweden, the cables use separate + and – for enhanced shielding and the highest quality copper.

This offers natural, transparent sound; the perfect choice for our speakers.

Cables are integral components, so they must work harmoniously with our design and build. Jorma delivers exactly what a Marten speaker needs.

A new level of isolation.
The reduction of resonance is important to the design of our speakers – it can mean the difference between a good speaker and a great speaker. With IsoAcoustics we created Marten Isolators. This precision product allows the cabinet to be completely isolated from the floor, reducing resonance and distortion – leaving the soundstage free.

  • Dynamic bass with increased power and control
  • Natural openness and clarity
  • Optimised for cabinet weight
  • Resists lateral movement and oscillations
  • Reduces internal reflections
  • Suitable for carpet (with discs)

First class as always.
The first order crossover has been integral to Mingus since inception. With refinements, today’s crossover is even better – it’s more open, cleaner and more dynamic. And very powerful in the bass frequencies.

The first order crossover makes it possible to have perfect time and phase coherence; and flawless time coincidence. This means that all registers are generated at the exact same moment, as it was recorded.

Statement Edition.
Mingus Quintet 2 can be upgraded to Statement Edition, featuring Jorma Statement internal cables and higher quality crossover components.

“To improve Mingus Quintet 2 we greatly reduced the resonance, tweaked the crossover and carefully upgraded components.”

Lounge and listener friendly.
Mingus Quintet 2 is suited to a wide range of rooms, offering true audiophile sound in a sleek, contemporary package. And with 4 levels of bass control, it is easy to place in smaller living spaces.
