What you get
Same team. New players.

With custom designed technology and perfectly balanced build techniques, Parker Duo is new in every way, but remains faithful to the Marten way of recreating sound as it is in life. With extreme resonance reduction, the cabinet is truly free of the soundstage, letting music and emotion take centre stage.

 

  • 2-way stand speaker
  • Brand new custom designed drivers
  • Multi-diverse crossover technique
  • High sensitivity: 88 dB
  • Marten custom stand (optional)

“Parker began as an update to the Heritage series, but the upgrades to technology and build were so radical, we created a new series instead.”

Leif Olofsson | Chief Designer, Marten
Cabinets
Distortion free; pure and powerful.

The cabinet features sleek, tapering sides created from M-board, a multi-layered material offering extreme resonance reduction. Parker Duo is so resonance-free, it completely disappears within the soundstage. The newly designed cabinet balances visual appeal with low-impact on sound.

Ceramic drivers
Smaller scale design for bigger results.

Ceramic drivers are custom designed by Leif Olofsson to meet the needs of a loudspeaker in this class. Each unit has a very long linear excursion and utilises the powerful Neodynium magnet system for control. Custom designed components allows a more holistic way of building a system, making Parker Duo a super-refined Marten speaker.

Bass and midrange
Full. Controlled. Dynamic.

Designed for the system, the 7.5” bass/midrange ceramic driver offers a large surface area resulting in a large, precise soundstage and great dynamics. While the passive radiator gives the control and dynamics needed for Parker Duo. A speaker of this class demands the ultimate in bass response.

Crossover
A harder working crossover.

A multi-diverse crossover technique was developed through hours of listening and testing, plus rigorous simulation, calculation and measurement. We’ve really put the work in with this crossover, using the best components and precisely tuning it to work with the system.

Internal wiring
Premium cables for purer sound.

We use Jorma Design internal wiring, for its 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 precision design and build. Jorma Design delivers exactly what a Marten speaker demands.

Stands and feet
A new level of isolation.

The optional stand is Marten designed so it works in concert with Parker Duo. Three extremely rigid pillars are mounted on a steel base plate which is weighted for stability.

The new Marten pucks by IsoAcoustics reduce resonance further, freeing the speaker of the soundstage while delivering controlled sound and detailed, rich bass.

Diamond edition
Upgrade to elite.

Parker Duo can be upgraded to Diamond edition, featuring a Diamond tweeter, more advanced crossover components, improved terminals and Jorma Statement internal cables. All models in the Parker series can be elevated to the ultimate in premium loudspeakers.

“Parker confidently shows off our design process - in refining each component, we have reached a new level”

Jörgen Olofsson | CEO, Marten
Your space
Powerful performance. Anywhere.

Parker works well at every scale - from the most modest, to the grandest of rooms. It’s a broad statement, but because each model has the same quality of driver units, cabinet and crossover, even the smallest model, Parker Duo, has the ability to command a large living space.
