ECLIPSE Launches the TD712zMK2 Speaker,
the Flagship of the ECLIPSE TD Range, in Europe

Feb. 20, 2009



February 20, 2009 -- FUJITSU TEN LIMITED, manufacturer of leading automotive electronics, has announced that the TD712zMK2 speaker, the flagship of the ECLIPSE TD range, will be available for sale on the European market in March 2009.

A new High-End Time Domain speaker with integrated stand. The unique design focuses on speed, accuracy and imaging, delivering a stunning musical sound.
In 2004, Eclipse released the TD712z speaker, the flagship of the ECLIPSE TD range. This became the ultimate standard for the brand and received exceptionally positive review coverage globally.

Five Years of Perfect Evolution - The MK2

Analogue speaker technology has changed little since its inception and achieving landmark progress presents a considerable challenge.

A five year research programme into the fundamentals of loudspeaker design, materials and technology, has allowed Fujitsu-Ten to markedly upgrade the performance of the TD712z, with the new MK2 version.

- One of the world's very finest loudspeakers

- Five years of research to make the MK2
- Floor standing Time Domain design
- Radical innovative design and appearance
- Eclipse's statement product
- Initial launch as a stereo pair
- Home Cinema variants coming soon

Every element of the design is focused on speed and accuracy. From the outside a simple form, the internal elements are extremely complex. The 712 delivers only the signal from the drive unit, with the cabinet itself adding nothing.

The dramatic speed of the design, ensures that listeners hear the vital first microsecond of a plucked guitar string or drum kick, details that are lost by the slow heavy drive units in most conventional speakers.

The changes that deliver the advances in performance

- more powerful motor system for the drive unit
- re-designed damping system for the driver surround
- new design of coupling to the integrated stand
- new ultra-efficient high-power magnet structure
- high-density zinc internal components
- cabinet 50% larger in volume

The way its built

- highly advanced single drive unit
- vertical angle adjustment of the head
- spiked energy earth path from head to stand to floor
- steel, zinc, aluminium and composite construction
- completely integrated nonresonant structure
- knife-edge wing stand
- full cable management
- speakers weigh a massive 25 kilos each

Audible improvements

- improved transient response / speed
- increased maximum loudness without compression
- further improved spatial imaging and air
- enhanced dynamics
- enhanced bass and extended treble response
- unprecedented clarity

What you don't get

- crossovers with their inherent distortion and phase problems
- internal standing and diffraction waves
- time and phase distortion effects that destroy imaging
- cabinet resonances adding boomy bass
- cabinet coloration that changes human voice
