E2 Evolution Two Speaker System
A BLEND OF A SERENE AMBIENCE AND ACOUSTIC ARTISTRY
A floor-standing speaker system that has emerged from the long tradition of TAD’s proprietary speaker technologies.
All TAD loudspeakers and their legendary TAD drivers are 100% developed in Japan and custom machined/handcrafted to the strictest specifications.
Made in Japan
years of experience
"EVOLUTION TWO BY TAD are loudspeakers delivering a sound that cannot be confused with any other. They resemble studio monitors, but with nicer, better saturated colors. They are equally dynamic, differentiating and resolving, but they add sweet high tones and sounds filled with information. Their tonal balance draws our attention to the midrange and its upper range, because there is no trace of coloration in their bass."
"Immersive Reise durch den Klang-Kosmos"
"What an incredibly beautiful speaker TAD has with the Evolution 2. This is potentially a competition killer. Seriously. This plays so incredibly easy, layered, insightful and big without being contrived or unsettled; unique. If we had the Alpha Ultimate Award, it would have been handed out. Don't deprive yourself of it if you're looking for a speaker in this class."

|Special Features||Waveguide Beryllium Tweeter
FLAWLESS, BRILLIANT HIGH-FREQUENCY DETAILS
As is the case with the critically acclaimed TAD E1TX and TAD ME1 speaker systems, the TAD E2 features a tweeter with a 25-mm beryllium diaphragm that delivers a polished sound in the mid-to-high frequency range — a signature of all TAD speakers. The directivity of the tweeter is optimally controlled by a newly developed waveguide on which it is mounted. The guide is made of rigid cast aluminum to suppress unwanted resonance and helps disperse soundwaves smoothly over an extended frequency range. The shape of the diaphragm is determined by an advanced optimization method based on the HSDOM (Harmonized Synthetic Diaphragm Optimum Method) computer analysis to provide a frequency response up to 60 kHz.
MACC* Woofer (*Multi-Layered Aramid Composite Cone)
POWERFUL EXPRESSION OF CLARITY IN THE MID TO LOW RANGE
The combination of a newly developed MACC (Multi-layered Aramid Composite Cone) diaphragm and a delta bracing structure incorporated into the twin woofers produces a powerful bass with smooth directivity changes. The vibration-suppressing center cap with excellent flexibility and the corrugated surround back-coated with damping material contribute to a clear, distortion-free, powerful mid- to low-range sound. In addition, a long voice coil with a short magnetic gap, which is responsible for delivering considerable driving force with exceptional linearity, has the long pole piece structure that generates a symmetrical magnetic flux and is positioned in a double short ring to minimize its inductance fluctuations over the entire frequency range and reduce dynamic distortions.
Bi-directional ADP* (*Aero-Dynamic Port)
RICH, NATURAL BASS REPRODUCTION
The port positioned on the bottom of the enclosure has openings to the front and the rear, essentially creating a port area the size of a large bass reflex port. This ingenious design lets the air pass through the port more slowly and contributes to a clear sound with a high signal-to-noise ratio.
