Recording Engineer

Jim Anderson

They are a wonderful addition to my aural palate.

When I listen to the Eclipse TD712zMK2, I am struck not only by the precision of their imaging, but their musicality, as well. I find the speaker’s sound stage to be precise and very well defined, with sound that is warm and inviting. The 712 compliment a wide range of musical styles and reveal subtleties even in the most familiar of recordings. I also find that, while listening to the 712, I’m deeply moved by the music that I’m hearing. My experience is that I’m not aware that I’m listening to speakers, only music, and that’s the highest compliment that I can give any speaker.

Also, as an ardent fan of modern design, I feel that the TD712zMK2 are an exquisite example of form that superbly follows function. They are a wonderful addition to my aural palate.
