Upon first glance on the Eclipse TD-M1, you would immediately mistake them for something like a miniaturized version of airplane turbines, but these are, in fact, a wireless desktop audio system. Made from a Japanese brand, Eclipse brings a lot of audiophile flair into your workspace. But its design and outstanding audio reproduction is met with quite the hefty price tag.
The Eclipse TD-M1 Brings a Modern Flair to Your Workspace
The Eclipse TD-M1 has egg-shape enclosures that look more like smaller versions of airplane turbines. They not only look very stunning but also have acoustic benefits as well. They suppress any internal standing waves which could otherwise hamper down audio performance. It takes its design from the company’s own TD-712.
It is available in either a white or black lacquer finish. Both versions are equally attractive. While many speakers and audio systems tend to lean towards the rectangular form, this one has a striking, distinctive design to it. It will make your workspace something straight out of a science fiction movie. The system is met with an angled silver stern that connects the main body and also acts as a very sturdy base.
Said base of the TD-M1 has a set of touch capacitive controls. Said controls include volume up/down, and a standby button which also acts to toggle through various inputs. To turn the volume up and down, run your finger along a row of dots. Knowing the volume level is as simple as looking at the row of LEDs showing along the front edge. These will glow different colors to indicate the current status, or even the selected input.
But what do they sound like? Simply put, much like the choice of design it has been given, listening to it is an absolute charm. Well, provided that you spend some time adjusting its position. Because of the way they are shaped, you would want to place them in a position that toes them inward with the drivers pointing directly at your ears. When you do get to the right position, then you can enjoy crisp details from just about every track you throw at it. However, bass frequencies could do a bit better.
The Eclipse TD-M1 brings some added futuristic spice to your workspace. Its design and build quality are top-notch, and audio is fantastic especially if you want your tracks to sound as detailed as possible. But should you want this audio system, do prepare to spend quite a bit on them.
