Eclipse will showcase speaker ‘invisibility’ with 3D audio at New York’s upcoming Audio Engineering Society convention (October 18-20). Take the 'invisible' hyperbole with a pinch of salt. The demonstration is intended to showcase the advantages of of its waveform reproduction technology, which offers highly precise spatial imaging which the brand says makes physical speakers seem ‘invisible’. The frame-mounted system will suspend nine egg-shaped TD508MK3 speakers and a TD725SWMK2 subwoofer  

Eclipse, the loudspeaker division of Fujitsu Ten, sells the TD508MK3 for £960 a pair. They feature a newly developed 8cm fiberglass drive unit, combined with a range of waveform reproduction technology. The speaker includes settings for both ceiling and wall-mounting, making it suitable for hi-fi and home cinema environments, as well as installations in designer space and commercial venues. A purpose-designed stand or mounting bracket (the CB1) is an optional extra.

The TD725SWMK2 sub, which has been designed to seamlessly partner them, uses compact dual drive units designed to be driven at high speed by an ICEpower amplifier. The back-to-back units are connected with an aluminium shaft and driven in-phase. The drivers ‘float’ inside the cabinet and special materials are used to suppress vibration. It retails for £5,100.
