Latest Agon reviewer David P purchased 11/27/20 :

I’ve been searching for a speaker with a specific sound, style and build quality. after many years and dozens of speakers, my search is over. The craftsmanship, design and overall tonality are outstanding. They fill the spectrum of sound beautifully, even at low volume. Just a crystalline, dimensional, lush sound. Simply put, these speakers are awesome

Reviewed by Terry London of Stereo Times:

Here’s, my conclusion regarding the Shinjitsu Audio Carbon Daisho speaker. It is an extremely well-built design using excellent internal parts, first-rate transducers and uses a very innovative back loaded horn approach to produce a great base foundation to the music in a very small cabinet. It offers an easy load that can be driven by low watt tube or solid-state amplifiers.


These are our Wood speakers
utilizing Japanese designed back loaded horn with Heil Air motion Transformer
enhanced to smooth and extend the critical high frequencies and midrange musical

All True Baltic Birch Laminate Labyrinth construction with 1/4 inch thick
solid Monkey Pod Wood front panel. Neutral Danish Oil finish hand buffed with
Meguiar's Gold Class Carnauba Plus Premium Paste Wax. 


The low frequency driver is a Mark Audio Pluvia PHD 70mm wide range
drive unit with double ferrite magnet and a natural blue uncoated paper
cone. Wide operating range 40 Hz to 20 kHz with an extremely broad
directivity pattern. Advanced low-distortion motor design. Long-stroke
suspension with arrestor and progressive-rate spider. Low-profile surface-mount
reinforced polymer basket. Crossed over with a phase coherent first order
design at 2 kHz to avoid beaming of the low frequency driver.


The high frequency
is the critically
acclaimed original Heil Air Motion Transformer widely recognized as the world’s
best midrange tweeter. The Heil diaphragm, made of soft, quiet mylar to
reduce background noise, is bonded with conductive aluminum strips. It is the
equivalent in surface area to a conventional cone eight inches in surface area.
The low mass diaphragm is suspended in a massive magnet structure concentrating
an intense magnetic field around the diaphragm. The ESS Heil Air Motion
Transformer (AMT) is recognized by the audio industry as the most significant
loudspeaker breakthrough of the last half-century. Shinjitsu Audio sources each
Heil Transformer directly from ESS with a certificate of authenticity
provided. Once you have heard it, you will agree that the ESS Heil AMT
indeed delivers “SOUND AS CLEAR AS LIGHT.”


The laser cut
solid maple back plate is terminated with solid copper heavy duty speaker
terminals and a unique attenuation network. The attenuation resistors provided
allow for infinite adjustment of midrange crossover point and high
frequency SPL and help to compensate for room response and age related high
frequency hearing loss. Tailor the highs to your desires. 


Versatility in placement
allows for tilt back floor standing, stand mounted or shelf mounted placement. 

Designed for deep bass in any venue these speakers are tested to energize rooms
up to 1000 square feet with punchy deep bass and are perfect for small apartments
as well. Ideal for low level listening late at night and can reach
crescendos of live music at 100dB with just 15 watts of input.


These speakers are
designed to be high sensitivity and can operate with as little as 8 watts and
are rated to produce up to 100 dB of sound pressure level in an average sized
room. Comfortable with chamber music to all out rock and roll these speakers
provide a wide gamut of musical tastes. 


  • Dimensions: 22 inches height / 17 inches depth
    / 9.5 inches wide

  • Weight: 47 Lbs.

  • Sensitivity: 87dB to 90 dB depending on
    high frequency attenuation selected

  • Maximum Power Mark Audio Pluvia PHD: 15
    watts with +/- 4mm Xmax    

  • Maximum Power Heil AMT 40 watts

  • Maximum combined SPL 100 watts which is
    equal to: 100 dBA tractor, helicopter or racing car 10 meters
    from the stage at a loud rock concert.



The most elegant way to
enhance bass response is the backloaded horn speaker.

  • Designed to collect the back wave (which in
    normal speakers is wasted or absorbed) the speaker driver amplifies the
    bass via a professionally designed labyrinth enclosure which exits the
    horn located on the back of the speaker enclosure. This clever design
    enhances bass more efficiently and accurately than bass-reflex and sealed
    enclosure types.

  • Back loaded horn type enclosures make the
    most efficient use of such back sound waves. Back-loaded horn system
    enclosures work in such a manner that, as bass comes out of a horn mounted
    on the back of a driver, the rest of sound spectrum, e.g. mid- and
    high-frequency ranges, is radiated directly from the driver.

  • Speakers employing back loaded horns
    are highly efficient by actively utilizing sound output from the bass
    driver and respond well to the subtlest components of music signals.
    Improved transient response, speed and effortless sound quality are some
    of the hallmarks of this type of driver arrangement.
