ME1 Micro Evolution One compact speaker
TAD's UNIQUE TECHNOLOGIES - CONCENTRATED IN A COMPACT CASE
Even the smallest member of the Evolution series uses all the key technologies that make TAD's compact speakers the best of their kind in the world. The CST-Beryllium-Magnesium Koxial driver is known for its holographic imaging, the powerful 16cm MACS woofer guarantees impressive, extremely precise bass performance. The innovative bi-directional ADS port - a unique feature of TAD Labs - simplifies placement, especially in smaller rooms.
All TAD loudspeakers and their legendary TAD drivers are 100% developed in Japan and custom machined/handcrafted to the strictest specifications.

years of experience
"The TAD ME1s aren’t inexpensive, but they are a handsome pair of speakers that exude quality in their build and excellence in their ability to reproduce clean, accurate sound."
"Big, uber controlled bass, textures finely ground out and controlled energy delivered in a relatively small package take the TAD Micro Evolution One to new levels for the category."
"[...] when you connect the TAD Micro Evolution One to your audio gear, you will face the beauty of music in the interpretation of masters in building the reality of a virtual world."
"Die TAD Labs ME1 sind echte Genuss-und Präzisionslautsprecher, die mit großer Spielfreude, Durchsichtigkeit und stimmigen Klangfarben für einen starken Auftritt sorgen."
"Dank des Koaxialchassis mit Beryllium-Kalotte und des bruchlos angebundenen Tieftöners zeichnet sie sich besonders durch eine phänomenale Abbildungsschärfe und holographisch räumliche Wiedergabe aus."
"The ME1 is truly one of the greatest little loudspeakers to hit the audiophile market in years."
"Gebaut für die Ewigkeit, dabei klanglich angenehm-informativ. Die Micro Evolution One spielt kraftvoll und doch geschmeidig, räumlich-transparent ohne übertriebene Analytik."
"From 40Hz up, it rivals anything else at any price. [...] The pair of them imaged like lasers, and could cast a soundstage as wide and as deep as my room allowed."

SOUND IN VIVID TRUE COLORS
TAD’s micro CST* Driver, created to produce truly natural sound. With the 14cm CST Driver already having a proven record of success, the 9cm micro driver has been made even more compact in pursuit of the point sound source concept. In addition, the directional characteristics of the coaxially configured midrange and tweeter have been matched to eliminate audio interference. The tweeter diaphragm represents a superior standard of design, produced from lightweight, high-rigidity beryllium. Over a wide band from 420Hz to 60kHz it delivers outstanding stable sound localization and a natural sound field space.

INCREDIBLE, EXPANSIVE MID AND BASS
The 16cm woofer employs the new MACC* Diaphragm that has enhanced strength and low internal loss for ideal vibration characteristics, as well as a magnetic circuit with outstanding linear drive characteristics. This diaphragm employs Aramid fabric and non-woven materials that are separately formed then laminated, achieving rich and smooth mid and bass tones free of coloration with excellent linearity.

Bi-Directional ADS* Port (*Aero-Dynamic Slot)
RICH AND NATURAL LOW TONES
An innovative approach to achieving ideal sound: the Bi-Directional ADS* Port. Slit-shaped ports are positioned on both of the enclosure’s side panels with flared openings to the front and rear. The symmetrical front-back, left-right layout eliminates the effects of unwanted sound from the port as well as standing waves within the enclosure. Considering the compact size, you’ll be amazed at the rich and powerful sound field that will fill your listening room.
