The first customer from Seoul got curious about my speakers when I was just crawling with promoting, I only had 4 photos and 20 follower(s) on instagram.
WooJae Kim #21follower_korea bought this very set, shown above and to the right, model M, graphite [ RAL-7024 ].
let's go now to Poland
Polish manufacturers in the field of professional audio are very appreciated in the world.

I mentioned only a handful of companies, but they are known and respected in every corner of the world - Mexico, USA, Germany, Japan, France, Korea, India, Nigeria
... every corner of the planet, there are professional and hobby recording studios everywhere.
Not only that, the products of these companies are some of the best in the respective branches of pro audio!
... Here is an example of how one of the most famous sound engineers in the world Bob Katz
, mastering Guru, winner of 3 Grammy awards, author of a book and a number of valuable publications about mastering, speaks about Polish company - emphasizing this fact
Even if we go back to the middle of the last century, a good example of outstanding achievements of Polish engineers in the audio field is Stefan Kudelski. His tape recorders were used on the Moon and at the bottom of the Mariana Trench. The Kudelski Group, a company he founded, produced NAGRA tape recorders. At the end of 1950s the "NAGRA III" model became the basic equipment of radio and television reporters. From the very beginning "NAGRA" tape recorders were distinguished by their compact size, incredibly precise workmanship and at the same time recording studio quality sound. At the same time "Nagra III" made the work of filmmakers so easy that in 1965 Stefan Kudelski received an Oscar for outstanding scientific and technical achievements. He was awarded another statuette in this category in 1978, thanks to the "NAGRA 4.2" tape recorder. In total, the Polish constructor won four Oscars.
I'm still far from global success, and I don't want to invest in traditional marketing so as not to raise the price of the product. I chose a very unusual and difficult way of publicity. But I have partially succeeded, my speakers are already in South Korea, USA and will soon reach France, then Germany.

One of my favorite memories and a key period for my brand.
This was the final listening for the model M, which then flew to a customer in Korea.
I'll tell you more about the story in the above photo and the Korean adventure another time ...

S model & applied technologies
S (smaller, near-field monitors) is not yet approved for sale outside Poland.
Model S is very successful, but compared to model M (nearfield and midfield monitors),
it does not yet meet my exorbitant standards (mastering grade).
At this point, only the M is worthy of being called one of the best linear speakers in the world (linearpro™ brand // www.linearaudio.pro).
The Model S is currently offered only to a Polish group of audiophiles, with whom we are jointly refining the HiFi RISM™ modes
(the passive crossover in the S is still under development).
The second problem is the current price, due to the fact that this is a less frequently ordered and thus produced model, its price is practically the same as the M model.
model S/grey [ RAL-7004 ]
The LDRRad™ (Linear Dual Ring Radiator) tweeter eliminates diffraction ripples (edge diffraction diffuser).
The special foam
around the driver helps smooth out the reflection effect and balances the bandwidth. It's not
a horn guide. Similar analog equalizer solutions have been used by Duntech Audio &
Dunlavy Audio Labs (John Dunlavy), Lipinski Sound (Andrew Lipinski), Bauta Speakers (Jacek
Gawlowski) or audiophile Wilson Audio (David A.Wilson & Sheryl Lee Wilson), Avalon Acoustics
(Charles Hansen & Neil Patel) and others.
[ RAL-9003 ]
One more ideology that I followed during the design was to make the speakers very small, with high parameters (compact size / high linear SPL power):
Custom tweeter LDRRad and custom woofer created a relatively small speaker with powerful sound.
In addition, taking the active electronics outside and placing them in a separate 1U rack enclosure further reduced the size of the speakers.
The ability to use a VESA (standard 100x100mm) mount and multiple connections (back or bottom) gives you the flexibility to position the speaker or hang it on the wall or ceiling.
Speakers can be placed in any position, upside down or fully flush to the wall.
A sealed enclosure offers nicer bass in the first place.
But it also means more precision and fast bass response.
These days, such designs are used less and less by manufacturers because it is difficult to design and thus not very profitable in terms of revenue.
Physical time alignment gives ultra-precise phase alignment between tweeter and woofer.
In addition, a special tweeter foam eleminates diffraction ripples.
Combined with 100% analog design, it gives a natural reference sound without distortion
The solid and thick MDF cabinet eliminates „boxy“ sound.
In addition, the whole structure is very heavy, which translates into better sound quality due to the elimination of vibrations.
All of the infographics and points above also apply to model M.
The M model, in a nutshell, has one more woofer - it improves bass sound pressure by 4 times.
This fact makes the M model to have much lower bass.
I will post more photos of S in some time, as pictures are sent in by customers...
reviews about appearance
„Amazing and unique design with a reference to timeless classics. Simple but beautiful“
If you like perfect analog sound and unique timeless ascetic design ...
... you've come to the right place
„After many years I visited my old friend Marian (#mlodnicki) at his company D79 in the center of Warsaw.
As I've been interested in building audio components and everything related to great sound since I was young, my eyes were immediately drawn to those beautiful, solid enclosures“
„They looked quite inconspicuous. The casing - very simple, without any spoilers, holes or other protrusions (closed enclosure).
An unusual light gray color.
The only distinctive elements were the foam around the tweeter and the blue tip of the tweeter (edge diffraction diffuser with time-alignment).
No logo or lettering on the front.
Was the ascetic design supposed to give the impression that the whole construction is oriented towards sound?
I would not mind“
„What caught my attention was the front look, it was unique, not like the regular monitors we know of.
You'll always want to have that second look if you're seeing it for the first time.
I have heard the speakers production in some of the videos you have posted and it sounds amazing“
Speakers can be ordered in any RAL color (currently without surcharge).
f you don't want to decide on your own color, I suggest my carefully selected branded colors: graphite RAL-7024, grey RAL-7004 or white RAL-9003. Semi-matt lacquer.
