The Mythology M1 represents a significant step forward in mini monitor loudspeaker design. The most striking, and telling, aspect of its design is the seamless blending of dynamic drivers with an electrostatic super tweeter in an augmented 2-way configuration. The transition between the dynamic components and the electrostatic tweeter is accomplished via a phase coherent first order crossover, simplified to allow the soft dome mid / HF driver to roll off acoustically, with no inductive reactance to electrically taper its response. The result is incredible transparency, inner detail, and enhanced ambience retrieval.
As the second ENIGMAcoustics product to embody the company’s patented Self-Bias Electrostatic (SBESL™) Technology, Mythology M1’s design eliminates the need for an external AC source to produce a polarizing voltage. SBESL™ circuitry, instead, derives the bias voltage from the signal itself.
Woofer and mid /HF driver designs were the result of an extensive evaluation of materials, over a year of design and refinement, all with the delicate integration of their attributes with those of the electrostatic driver as the ultimate mission. No detail was overlooked. And while Mythology M1 exhibits excellent measurements in the lab and generates superb numbers, its sonic performance is something that simply must be heard to be appreciated.
