Maria 350 Systems

Maria 350 Amplifier

Powered by the exclusive Daniel Hertz Mighty Cat® Audio Chip with C-Wave technology that delivers sound better than pure analogue from any digital music, including streaming. It is a DAC with analogue power output that has a native resolution of 384kHz. Mighty Cat® has the most elegant and shortest signal path possible, eliminating signal degradation by multiple chassis systems with many meters of cable, power supplies and loading issues.

Mighty Cat® has no audible noise. High output current and low output impedance enable Mighty Cat® to drive all high quality speakers with ease. Power supply regulation, a rare and costly feature of only a few pure analogue amplifiers, is provided by a state-of-the art SMPS (switching mode power supply), enabling rock solid bass, astonishing punch and dynamics, and pin point imaging. 3 analogue inputs have one megohm input impedance, an innovation introduced by Mark Levinson, which eliminates loading of analogue source devices. The Maria 350’s digital inputs include Wi-Fi (Airplay), Bluetooth, digital coaxial, and USB Audio 2.0 for connection of a Mac/PC or audiophile streamer/music server.

The Maria 350 is as new on the outside as it is on the inside. Made in Venice, Italy, Maria’s chassis is made of hand-assembled art-grade black mirror finish Perspex panels, with hand-polished stainless steel knobs and buttons. Typical amplifiers made of anodized aluminum have the look of an appliance. The Maria Amplifiers are closer to the quality of fine jewellery.

Maria’s chassis is artisan made, not industrially produced, and is at home with luxury home interiors and architecturally designed spaces. Daniel Hertz is the only audio company that designs and builds its own speaker connectors. They are made from machined Delrin® and brass with a speaker connector tightening tool made from Delrin® and stainless steel.

Maria 350 amplifiers are also available separately – £13,500

Eva with Maria 350 – £21,000 

Most compact speakers lack natural sound and deep bass. Eva uses highly engineered drivers, a crossover and cabinet, personally tuned by Mark Levinson to deliver astonishingly natural sound and deep bass to below 30Hz, with wide dynamic range and flexibility at affordable cost.

The Daniel Hertz Eva has a 1” silk dome tweeter, high resolution 6” woofer, precision crossover, ported 25mm thick enclosure, high quality connectors, and a flawless black piano finish.

This may be the most affordable Daniel Hertz system, but it can outperform systems costing many tens of thousands more – it is the epitome of a market disrupter!

Eva loudspeakers are also available separately – £7,500

Chiara with Maria 800 – £56,000

The Chiara ultra dimensional speakers faithfully reproduces the sound of instruments and voices with stunning accuracy that enables you to clearly hear the acoustic detail of the performance space. Chiara’s hand-built Aerostriction Tweeters and 8” Woofers are the products of decades of intense engineering and artisanal craftsmanship, made in small quantities without compromise.

Mark Levinson personally designed the Aerostriction Tweeters to produce the widest sound stage available. Chiara has an exclusive 8” woofer, handmade by Daniel Hertz, with a resonant frequency of 27Hz. This enables it to faithfully reproduce the main body of recording and it pairs beautifully with the open sound of the exclusive Aerostriction Tweeters. The pairing of these drivers means that the Chiara is capable of seamlessly reproducing sound from below 20Hz all the way through 20Khz with a dynamic range of 112db SPL. Chiara’s cabinet is handmade and assembled by Daniel Hertz in Italy with ultra-dense Marine Grade Plywood for superior bass and energy management.

M4 with Maria 800 – £166,000

The M4 is a more compact version of the flagship M1 Reference. The M4 was created to put the M1’s incredibly high standard into a living room size speaker without compromise.

The Daniel Hertz M4 reference bi-amplified system is the finest living room sized system Mark Levinson has ever created and he believes is the only speaker of its size that creates an emotional experience that challenges live music. Using state of the art pro audio technology with proprietary refinements, the M4 has an efficiency of 95dB/1W/1M/8 ohms. In practice, most listening consumes less than 1W of power.

The compression driver tweeter and Daniel Hertz exclusive molded horn reproduce the fine details of the most delicate instruments and also the full force of high SPL Rock and Pop tracks with sound pressure at the maximum sustainable levels.
The monster 12” Midrange reproduces the main body of the sound with extreme transparency and dynamics. The 15” Subwoofer has the speed, low distortion and power handling to shake rooms as well as recreate the subtle low level ambiance of a concert hall. Daniel Hertz speaker connectors eliminate solder joints and terminations, insuring perfect signal transmission between the Maria 800 and the M4.
