Oscar Duo meets the demand for a reasonably-priced Marten speaker, without sacrifice to our renowned sound and quality. To achieve this we re-designed the build and created a bespoke driver.
The build offers exceptionally controlled and natural sound; true musicality that is the mark of a Marten speaker.
- Custom designed drivers
- True Marten sound
- Competitive price-point
“To keep the same Marten sound we designed brand new drivers, allowing more control of the details”

Hard ceramic is light, yet extremely rigid, making it one of the best materials for speaker membranes – it’s also known as Sapphire.
Our ceramic cones have a high internal damping factor, because of a refined electrochemical process. The membrane also has a high material resonance frequency, meaning distortion is minimal; offering a level of clarity that is the holy grail for high end speaker cones.
The exterior is an exercise in minimalist design – no unnecessary details; no embellishment. Marten cabinet design is a balance of strength and elegance: the perfect compliment to the sound.
The optional magnetic cover snaps on with a satisfying click, instantly streamlining the form without changing the sound.
To ensure the stand would work perfectly with Oscar Duo, we designed it ourselves – with as much consideration to resonance, as to form.
It had to be rigid enough to deal with vibrations, but also look good. After many iterations, we settled on a triple pillar design: making the overall appearance lighter, while keeping it stable.
We prefer to use lower order crossovers, as the higher order crossovers tend to limit the dynamics and details. Our second order crossover has been creatively designed to make the best of the dynamic range.
