The Nordic Tone - Model 1 Music reproduction as it was ment to be

The Nordic Tone - Model 1 is the first product based on one of the largest research and development projects within loudspeaker design that has been carried out. The multi disciplinary team consisting of industrial designers, specialists in acoustics, engineers and metallurgists have been working for three years to develop these exclusive high performance loudspeakers.

Our goal has been to attain a natural sound in home environments, and at the same time focusing on giving our products a stunning, modern design that will work well - as part of the interior of a private residence for years to come.

Be prepared for sound reproduction and an experience of presence rarely heard...

The Nordic Tone is the name of the loudspeakers produced by Electrocompaniet in Norway. Our goal is to present fine, high performance loudspeakers, designed and produced by skilled craftsmen in Norway.

There is a special place in the hearts of music enthusiasts for true high fidelity audio equipment. The most important value of our products is their ability to reproduce musical performances so natural and uncolored that the listeners can close their eyes and enjoy concert experiences at home.

We strive to reproduce the musical and holographic information provided via the loudspeaker cables as naturally as possible. This gives our listeners the best basis for joyful and living music experiences at home. Our goal is to design loudspeakers that add positively to the home environment.

The cabinet technology developed breaks with the traditional and cost-efficient loudspeaker enclosures of thick, heavy wood based enclosure walls. We believe a cabinet should be made of a thin, light, stiff material, shaped with spherical surfaces. Spherical surfaces are very important as it increases the stiffness hundreds of times compared to the flat and tenfold compared to extruded aluminium profiles.

The reason for our search for thin, light, stiff enclosures is based on the following: Hi frequency resonances, as those found in light and stiff materials, are much easier to muffle. We combine the outer 7 mm cast aluminum wall with a heavy dead muffler sandwich on the inside. Our muffling method is basically the same as the ones used in aircraft to enable the passengers leave the plane with their ears intact - which actually is quite remarkable considering that they have been sitting only a few meters away from one of the strongest sound producers made by man - a large jet engine.

To improve this method even further we pre-tension the complete enclosure with pushrods loaded with 2500N. The absorbers inside the enclosure are shaped as wedges, preventing reflections from the sound waves reaching the rear side of the elements.
