MUSICLIFE ML-2 -sunburst-

Full-range studio model with Bluetooth Great practicality and even better price reduction!
After more than 10 years of research, we have finally arrived at a handmade Japanese speaker with the highest level of sound quality. The speakers are equipped with a balanced input for professional use and Bluetooth for versatility.

Full-range speakers use 3-inch paper cones and neodymium magnets for high resolution and natural sound quality. The horn mechanism is machined from wood to achieve a natural spaciousness.

The amplifier section is a high quality sound design with a proprietary BTL system and frame grounding. The combination of parts selected through repeated listening tests reproduces even the joy of music with the best sound quality beyond its class.

The ML-1 was completed after a thorough trial and error process to reproduce the sound of the SMB-02, which has received the highest acclaim in the world, on speakers, and the ML-2 has been further upgraded and priced down after continued trial and error.

Input gain setting was changed.
Bluetooth chip change
EQ circuit bypass
Speaker unit tuning
Increased wood density
Sunburst paint

The sound quality has been dramatically improved with the above minor changes.

In addition to its use as a high-resolution professional monitor speaker, the new ver. 5.1 Bluetooth chip has also made the ML-2 even more versatile.
The ML-2’s original power to produce the best sound with easy installation and operation is now even more apparent in this upgrade.

Equipped with new Bluetooth chip

The full-range speakers (3-inch) use paper cone and neodymium magnet to transmit natural sound quality in high resolution. The shaved wood horn mechanism realizes a natural spreading of the sound. The amplifier delivers our commitment to high-quality sound with an original BTL (balanced transformerless) schematic, frameground processing, and more.

Comments from sound professionals who listened to our prototype…

The PHONON MUSICLIFE is a great referencing tool in the studio when you want to shift away from NS10’s or your main reference monitors. Although it has a similar shape to an actual boombox, the fidelity of sound is surprisingly good, and the added bluetooth functionality is pretty handy as well – no cables required!

Equipped with professional studio standard XLR balanced input (+4 dB) and consumer audio equipment standard LINE input (-10 dB), with an SW gain switch that enables level matching between connected devices (XLR / LINE combo jack). Also features the convenience of Bluetooth, with SBC and high sound-quality AAC as well as aptX correspondence.
