             " We are talking unprecedented levels of coherency here from a small speaker that is amazing, literally amazing Its the midrange performance that, to me, makes the Sapphire a most remarkable speaker what really sets the Sapphire apart from the rest of the speakers is the purity, its complete lack of grit and grain.

             And absolutely none of them, that I know of, that will give you everything else that Mark & Daniels do - unbelievable bass and smoothly refined and articulate midrange C along with that perfectly airy treble. It aint gonna at anywhere near the Sapphires price range.

             The Maximus-Sapphire is the Mark & Daniels monitor-grade miniature speaker made with state-of-art technologies, suitable for Pro Audio applications and/or for audiophiles who are seeking for the finest sound reproducer ever made in miniature size speakers.

Based on the success and design of the Maximus-Ruby; significant detail improvements have been painstakingly crafted to create the Sapphire monitor system, specifically on:


- Fully rein-forced structural enclosure, and back panel with two reflection ports to further cut down on extraneous noise and distortion;


- A larger rubber surround with heavier cone mass for the new 5.5 SX woofer is utilized; the woofer incorporates an 40% magnetically strengthened motor which provides even higher output capability, and optimized bass control during high SPL reproduction;


- A new crossover network design, including larger diameter inductor and high quality capacitors for detailed sound alignment;


- Bi-wire speaker terminals are provided allowing bi-wire connection or a bi-amp playback system for the best possible sound reproduction.






             A DM-4 AMT Dreams module is mounted on front panel to cover the 900Hz-25KHz wide audio band with excellent dispersion characteristics. An improved 5.5 SX woofer with a superb 10mm linear excursion has been assembled into a rein-forced miniature Compound Marble enclosure, with system F3 response lowered deep down to an amazing 45Hz!


             Maximus-Sapphires dimensions are H 29.0cm (11.4) xW 17.0cm (6.7) xD 21.3cm (8.4), same as the Maximus- Ruby; the rein-forced enclosure is extremely solid and heavy, each weighting 9.5 Kg (21 lb). The nominal impedance is 3-6 ohms with average efficiency being 83.5dB/2.83V/1m. Maximus-Sapphire speaker does not equip the mask on the panel for the best possible sound reproduction.


             For proper operation, a high current amplifier with 100 watts output per channel connecting with the bi-wire cable is the minimum requirement for driving the Maximus-Sapphire.
             For better sound performance and cost saving, two mid-power amplifiers can be configured as the bi-amp playback system recommended by Mark &Daniel®.
