Talis S 300 Floorstanding Loudspeakers By T+A HiFi
The Talis S 300 is a gorgeous compact floor-standing loudspeaker built with precision and for performance. Solid aluminum cabinets and refined drivers deliver 25Hz bass and incredible nuance.
The S 300 is a compact floor-standing speaker of great beauty and quality. These unique loudspeakers are just 21 cm wide and 105 cm tall (8.3″ x 41.4″), and typify the philosophy behind the entire series in terms of technology and sound quality: heavy cabinets made of solid aluminum, high-end speaker drivers and cross-over units, and an open sound image, devoid of distortion, with a wide dynamic range and superb bass response.
The newly developed drivers are the key to the S 300’s incredible performance. It incorporates two high-end bass drive units which generate a deep, high-pressure bass even at very high levels. The mid-range unit provides perfect control of the full vocal range and has a lively, dynamic character. The new super treble dome unit is airy, fast, dynamic, and without any trace of edge or hardness.
The sophisticated three-way cross-over unit has an effortless ability to control all three frequency ranges superbly, ensuring an open, ultra-spacious sound stage.
For outstanding bass response, critical that the speakers stand on a firm, secure base, free of resonance, and are isolated from the sub-surface. That is why T+A’s developed a new design of spike for these speakers. The heavy spikes are machined from solid stainless steel, can be dismantled, and terminated either in pointed metal cones or plastic glide pads for delicate floors.
Under normal circumstances, a relatively small cabinet volume limits the loudspeaker’s bottom limit frequency and maximum sound pressure in the bass range. However, this does not apply to the S 300 because the net internal volume of the aluminum housing is much greater than that of a comparable wooden one. At the same time, the design engineers have developed extremely sophisticated High-End bass units fitted with high-performance magnet systems; they are also capable of extremely long linear travel thanks to their triple surround. The drivers are tailored precisely to match the cabinet, and their stiffened cones generate an incredibly deep, high-pressure bass which remains stable even at very high volumes.
The new super treble dome unit forms the perfect complement, extending the transmission range up to 30,000 Hz and beyond; it is airy, fast, dynamic, and without any trace of edge or hardness. The sophisticated cross-over unit is assembled using the finest available components. Precisely calculated, and fine-tuned for optimum cone travel and transmission characteristics, it has an effortless ability to process extremely high levels, thereby ensuring that all three frequency ranges are superbly controlled.
The mid-range driver is an ingenious design which provides perfect control of the full vocal range from 300 to 2000 Hz, while its lively, dynamic character creates an outstandingly natural impression. The embossed and stiffened cone is totally devoid of resonances, while a special triple surround eliminates any trace of overshooting.
Talis loudspeakers are built to uniquely high standards: every detail is faultlessly implemented – even inside the cabinet.
“We loved everything from the quality crates/boxes used to the cabinet design to the performance. In the article he also mentions several other pieces of T+A that he has heard and that have been reviewed in TAS. He also talks about the DAC 8 DSD that one of the other reviewers got him to buy, and happy that he did!”
“I do want to emphasize that the qualities described above were not evident when the S 300s were freshly unpacked—they needed 150–200 hours of playing music to come into their own. Before that, the speakers were quite “accurate” with loads of detail, yet provided only a very ordinary listening experience. With time, the preternatural clarity remained, joined by an organic ease and naturalness surely related to the tonal verisimilitude noted above. Loudspeakers under $20,000 are the class of products I cover at shows, and I’ve not heard ones better than the S 300s. Sonically, they hold their own with competing models from Wilson and Magico that cost thousands more, despite having to cross an ocean to get here, and the T+As will likely get higher marks for appearance than products from those other two fine manufacturers. Most importantly, the Talis S 300 can make you forget that you are listening to a recording.”
