Merlin Black Magic!!!
Black Magic versions of all Master VSM and TSM models are now available. What is a Black Magic version? It is a Master VSM or TSM built with proprietary Cardas Clear wiring, cryoed versions of the new UpTone Musicap, a solder formulation change and connection treatments for the terminals, jumpers and RC networks. JP in Europe says, "After a lot more listening they sound incredible, just amazing. It is like a new speaker compared to the older versions..." and we, could not agree more!

Merlin VSM & BAM Improvements & Upgrades
Another profound improvement and low cost! All current Super BAMs, Master BAMs and VSM's are built with Cardas Clear geometry cable. The difference in the coherence, tonal balance, relaxed nature and sense of realism is not to be believed. An inexpensive upgrade for any BAM and/or VSM, especially when you consider the benefits. Call the factory for a quote and have your bam upgraded. Bobby says "its a must do!" Click here to view some customer comments.

TSM Speaker Upgrades
We are also happy to announce that we are offering Clear geometry cable as an upgrade to "all" previous versions of the TSM (and VSM too - see above). We have already performed this upgrade to a number of older models with exceptional results. Another must do! call the factory for prices.

Dual Mono Dual Input/Output Master BAM
New dual monaural, dual ops (RCA & balanced inputs/outputs) Master BAM. Two full and separate channels on two chassis. Superior separation, less distortion, 50% longer battery life and the AC sounds virtually as good as battery ops does. Increased bandwidth, clarity, dynamics, expanse and just more live sounding. Contact us for upgrade information of existing dual ops S-BAMs.

Master BAM and Master RCs  Please call or e-mail us for details on our Master Bam and Master RCs. While the original Super BAM and RCs are still available, these Master series Merlin products incorporate very special (proprietary) Duelund capacitors that significantly improve the performance of both the RCs and the BAM!
