Major innovative break through: The new NSMT Loudspeakers reference speaker

In the next two weeks my Stereo Times review on the new NSMT Loudspeakers reference System Two will be posted. I wanted to give a heads-up to the GON members because I consider the System Two, which is composed of the Clairvoyant Monitor and SUB-DUO active band-pass subwoofer platforms to be a revolutionary break through both in performance and retail price $15,985. For example I compare the NSMT System Two to a great speaker, the Stenheim Alumine Five SE Dynamic Loudspeaker, and found the NSMT System Two to be superior in it's performance. Punch line- The Stenheim Alumine retails for $72,000! For all the details of why I came to the above conclusions take a look at the review when it is posted.

There is absolutely nothing special about these speakers. They use the same old technology. I did not say the were bad but hey are not in any way shape or form a breakthrough. 

Hey mijostyn,

I answered this question already why the NSMT System 2 speakers offer two "breakthroughs". First, the development of a dual driver band-pass subwoofer strategy. Secondly, the financial cost vs, performance ratio. The performance level of this speaker is off the charts. You would have to spend immense amounts of money to equal the System 2's level of performance and still might not even equal it regardless what you spend.


NSMT does not show up in the Capital Audiofest 2023 list of exhibiters. You sure they are attending?

Their website seems to be currently only showing last year's exhibitors, or am I missing something?

Under Capital Audiofest 2023 "2023 Exhibiters and Brands" lists exhibiter names and rooms.

@bernardo When I click on "CAF 2023 Exhibitors and Brands" it sends me to a page titled "Exhibitors CAF 2022  Check Out Last Year's List Of Capital Audiofest 2022 Exhibitors". I can't seem to find this year's exhibitors on their website, odd as the show is only about a month away!

Hey Guys,

I'll get in touch with Erol to see if he will be at the show. I hope he will be there with the NSMT System 2 speakers so more people will be able to hear them and decide on their merits through direct experience. 



I don't understand why you can't access the 2023 info. There is a pulldown under the Exhibitors and Brands heading for both 2023 and for 2022 shows. If you are using the Search feature below that may be that is the problem.

I have to vent a little concerning NSMT speakers. It is very disappointing that someone like myself can live 45 minutes from the speaker manufacturer's base but apparently has to travel hundreds of miles to hear these new System 2 speakers (or the Model 100) .

For the hundreds and thousands of people clamoring to hear the the NSMT Clairvoyant System Two at Capital Audiofest (just kidding) we will be demonstrating there. I will fill you in with the details later (not kidding).

The NSMT exhibit at Capital Audio Fest will be in room 641. We will be exhibiting  the Clairvoyant System Two driven by SPL amplification.


For even better sound I recommend changing your coil to a 12 gauge copper wax foil coil from Jantzen (go into the inside of the coil and out the outside)....also bypass your cap with a small value teflon Vcap (make sure both caps are in the best sounding direction....usually outside foil to output). Binding posts should be WBT nextgen coppers (not silver). Of course , use great sounding wire and wire directly to the voice coil wires on the woofers....not to the back of the tab but to the place the voice coil wire is attached to the tab (much more real sounding). Use my Ground Enhancers and Music Purifiers ($125 the pair) on the speaker terminals to take it to another whole level, I would also felt the entire front of the speaker right up to the surrounds of the drivers....tweeter too. Do all the above and you will have people drooling.....he he. Just call it the SE model and charge a few more hundred dollars.....everyone will want it.

There is absolutely nothing special about these speakers. They use the same old technology. I did not say the were bad but hey are not in any way shape or form a breakthrough

@mijostyn , +1...any dude can tinker in his garage and think that the crap he churns out is worth upwards of 20k anymore.


The technology is very valid here.  Same as what Dunlavy was doing 30 years ago.  Time Aligned.....6 db per octave crossover with very little parts (so reasonably in phase).....and very good drivers.  I am sure they sound as described.  However, as stated above as well.  This is nothing new and you can build such a system for practically zero money......however, that does not mean that these speaker are not great.....and great for the money.  These are different things.  My own speakers are like the 100s he sells.  I use a woofer with no crossover and a set back time aligned modified tweeter on top with just a super cap and super resistor on it.  Very transparent.....$45 woofer and $25 tweeter.  Would blow your mind if you heard it.

BTW.....cryoing the xover parts and jacks would improve the sound even more.

In the last few days I had two guests over to listen to the NSMT System Two speakers. Both are seasoned audiophiles with vast experiences with top notch equipment and systems. Kirby, who also is a bass musician, was taken aback with the total performance of the System Two's overall performance and also felt that from the lower midrange to the deepest bass frequencies was the best he had heard in a system regarding pressurizing the listening space with accurate bass with correct timbres/tonality.

My other guest Nick, was very familiar with the sound of my system and was wondering if the System Two speakers could significantly out perform the NSMT 100 speakers. He was amazed at the level of improvement that the System Two's delivered over the Model 100 speakers. We both agreed that the Model 100s are still great speakers, but not approaching the higher level of performance delivered by the new NSMT design.

Hello, Jayctoy why don't you come over to hear the System Two speakers. You are more then welcome, so are other GON members, it would be great to see you again.


I visited Terry at his home last weekend and got to hear the Clairvoyant speaker with the larger NSMT Bass Foundation active Band-Pass subwoofers and they made a difference in the over sound stage. The system is just fracking amazing on all aspects we care about in audiophile world. Great job Erol.


Hello gentlemen,

Wanted to share that at the Capital Audio fest later this month NSMT Loudspeaker will be showing the System Two speakers. I was informed that the upstream equipment will be provided by Mike Kay (Audio Archon), a NSMT retailer, and will replicate my reference system that Erol described in an earlier post. The preamplifier/DAC is the SPL Director and the amplifier is the single chassis SPL S1200. Besides, the obvious difference between the acoustic space, I use a Reimyo Tuko DAC and a SPL Elector pure preamplifier which does not have an internal DAC. 

So, I hope you attending the show will visit the NSMT room. I'm confident that you will immensely enjoy what you hear, now that I know what gear is driving the NSMT System Two speakers. Please post what your opinion is after you visit the room when you have a chance. Enjoy the show! 

Thanks, Teajay (Terry London)

Thanks for the updates and hopefully a video will show up to get a sense of their sound.


Many thanks to the people who came to our room. The debut was great. Many people thought the Clairvoyant System Two were the best speakers at the show. Several people made return visits.

The room was difficult to work with. The first day, Friday, we set up the speakers at the back of the room. The soundstage was not as high as it should be. The imaging was not rock solid. The sound was not the best.

Saturday and Sunday we changed the setup to a near field setup with the Clairvoyant Monitors nearer to the center of the room and the subs behind them.  The sound was stunning. The Clairvoyants showed their prowess as near-field monitors producing a deep, holographic, soundstage, totally detached from the speakers. Great integration, great imaging.

People were surprised how the speakers disappeared despite how close they were sitting to the speakers. We demoed the Clairvoyants without the subs for several listeners who were surprised by their bass performance. Some notables from the industry came and stayed a long time. All in all, a great show.

Many thanks to our Chicago area dealer Mike Kay (847-687-4800) who loaned us the wonderful sounding SPL amplification, Black Cat cabling, and Puritan PSM 156 power conditioner. A special thanks to Koby of Hi Fi Logic (973-313-9080), our new Jersey/New York dealer, for driving down to help run the room and for providing the wonderful sounding Resolution CD  player and Aurender Music server. A big up to long time friend and former dealer Christopher who drove down from New York to help run the room. Could not do it without you!

Hey, GON members

Did any of you visit this room? If so what was your "take" on its performance.
