NSMT Speakers?

Has anyone heard of this speaker company? I'm looking for a full bodied, time coherant design that can be placed close to the real wall. After doing dome searching I came across this speaker mfg. and am interested in their "Chorus" model- http://www.nsmt-loudspeakers.com/brochures/chorus.html

Pleace let me know if you have heard their speakers, or have any comments on the design in general. Thanks
"We make the best loudspeakers". Says so right there on the page.

The Chorus has a sensitivity of 96 dB, bass extension to 35 Hz, and an internal volume of about 1/2 cubic feet.

The gap between a truly high-end company like NSMT, who makes the best loudspeakers, and a hack like myself, is truly astounding:

I have built speakers that are roughly ten times the size (and ten times the cost) of the NSMT Chorus, and mine do not match the combination of sensitivity and bass extension that the amazing little Chorus offers.

Now I'm embarrassed to even write this... the thought crossed my mind that perhaps NSMT is measuring with a different yardstick than the one I'm using. But then I remembered that they make the best loudspeakers, and I don't, so who am I to question them?


(yes, I really am a speaker manufacturer)
"Nothing you have seen and nothing you have heard prepares you for The Chorus audiophile on wall loudspeaker."

Quote from website.
If they said it on their website, it must be true, right?
They used to simply be NSM Speakers. I owned the 10S. Terrific speakers, sealed boxes. They were also a sister company to Role Audio. They began in Florida but moved to where they are now. It's been a while (7 years) since I owned the 10S. I also had the opportunity to talk to the owner on the phone. He was a pleasant, helpful individual.
Not to jump on anybody's bandwagon here, but they were showing their model 100M at the show here in Atlanta last weekend. I found them to be quite an enjoyable speaker, certainly not something that I would totally discount if I were in the market for loudspeakers. The designer(forgot his name) was also quite knowledgable and friendly. The pitch "best loudspeakers" might be a stretch but they were better than a number of other speakers (costing a lot more money)that I listened to that day. Again not trying to sway anyone, just my two cents. And I have no affiliation with this speaker manufacturer.
I auditioned a pair of NSM floorstanders (don't know the model)a long time ago. They sounded very good, had good bass for bring so small. I wouldn't count them out because of the over the top sales claims.
Here's a review of the NSMT 100M speakers from Positive Feedback: http://www.positive-feedback.com/Issue54/nsmt.htm
Thanks guys! It looks like they might be decent speakers, based the feedback from previous models.

Since posting this iv'e also been looking really closely at the Direct Acoustics Silent Speaker II which is also another unknown company.
I have had a pair of NSMT speakers for more than a year and find them to be very good. It took me a while to understand the design, but it sounded good in my room, better than other options in my range—under $6,000.

I was set on a stand mounted speaker, and found little compromise in frequency response. I think some of the claims, and you can find silly claims from almost any maker, can be confusing because they do seem to be impossible. I've found that mine claim time coherency, but I've come to realize that time coherency for any design can only be accomplished in a small area, and that my speakers can't be perfectly time coherent as designed. They are minimum phase though, just as advertised, and the crossover is minimal—cap and coil.

What appears as an MTM design is really a ported three-way. It uses variants of the same 6.5 inch SEAS TPX driver. One driver is made to be sealed in an acoustic suspension box. The other appears to be the same driver but has a different magnet, tuned to what I suspect to be semi-ported design. This driver, I suspect, runs full range while the acoustic suspension driver gets the coil. Now I may have this wrong, but it does explain how a design can be transmission line and acoustic suspension, both.

Errol Rickets is the designer. He's a nice guy, and I feel like I got an amazing deal. I would not hesitate to audition any of his speakers. I think he has some very creative solutions and also puts lots of ear-tunning time into his designs.
