Welcome to Taylor speakers, created from a passion for music and the pure joy of hearing everything in a recording. Years of building fine furniture while listening to classical music has led to an interest in acoustic design.
Acoustic engineering meets fine furniture making, resulting in our line of hand made speakers. ‘drop dead gorgeous’ (Stereophile). Through relentless engineering work we are able to deliver the energy and dynamic sound so many of us strive to hear, the Taylor Sound that can only be called ‘musical’.
Each speaker we produce is designed to create a studio quality sound. Our speakers use the very best in components; hand made, well braced cabinets with architectural veneers, among the very best drivers available, including our own hand turned inductors, high power precision resistors, foil-film capacitors, silver solder, pure copper / teflon internal wiring.Our cabinet design is the result of 10 years of study and experimentation. Among the finest sounding enclosures made.
We have chosen to sell direct, allowing a freedom to build and design a few hundred pairs of speakers a year. Each design is engineered with advanced computer aided software and measuring hardware, the sound is finalized through critical listening, measuring and of course music. For Music is what our speakers are all about. Classical music is without a doubt the most demanding music for any speaker and ours are ‘voiced’ through this music.
The price listed in the site is for direct sales, we do not sell through outlets. A sample price of $885 for the Concerto would have a $1800 retail price.
