for sound technology began when he was a boy growing up in
the French countryside
Endless days pulling apart old boom boxes, speaker cabinets and
radios fueled Matthieu's quest for the perfect sound.
In Matthieu's own words: I love
music... the ability of listening to a piece of art at home and
experiencing it through feelings is a blessing for me.
As a kid, the fact that some vibrating material could produce a
sound was fascinating me. Today, I design and build speakers so
that you and I can appreciate every single detail recorded and
My creations are ENTIRELY handmade out of plaster-mortar that
provides a stone rendering and avoids vibrations of the cabinet;
in other words the only thing you listen to is the driver
The choice of sphere enclosure was obviously for the design but
the main reason is because it has a real impact on the fidelity
of the speaker. A sphere is mechanically almost perfect:
- It does not vibrate which is
supportive for mid and low frequencies with a
lot of energy.
- There is no diffraction on
its surface and that concerns high frequencies
that have a tendency to break on angles.
Each sphere has a
minimum 25mm thickness (1") for the smallest and can reach 40mm for
the biggest boxes, that is to give an idea of the solidity and
weight of the speaker.
They are molded
in one piece (instead of two half-spheres) with at least 10
layers of plaster and several steps of sanding, last one being
water sanding which provides a soft and natural stone rendering.
There is an exception for the subwoofers with a colored light
included where a translucent polymer sphere is used.
electronic part or crossover, I use a special technique called
di-aural, designed by
kimberkable. It provides a good balance
between the drivers( tweeter to woofer) and requires fewer
parts, that contributes to reduce distortion.
I am of course available to be contacted by
email, snail mail or phone. You
are welcome to ask any question.
We can work
together on the system of your dreams, designed on your
specifications with passion and knowledge.
