product description image

At Daniel Hertz, we believe that “No compromise” is not marketing hyperbole; it lives in the engineering, craftsmanship and attention to detail in everything we do.

Max Studio Monitors

The Max Studio Monitors offer natural sound with pro audio muscle.

This new Audio System replaces the traditional industry mindset of needing separate components.

They fulfill the need for the ultimate in accuracy. Max delivers refined, natural sound, punch, wide dynamic range, precision imaging and high reliability.

Max's cabinet is slightly larger than a typical bookshelf speaker due to the 24mm (.9”) thickness of the walls, internal air volume and massive bracing. Max's rectangular black matte finish cabinet is built with the most expensive ultra-dense Marine Grade Plywood for superior bass, punch and energy management.

Maria 200

The Mighty Cat® Class D chipset is at the heart of the Maria 200. It is a DAC with analog 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 analog 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 analog inputs have one megohm input impedance, an innovation introduced by Mark Levinson, which eliminates loading of analog source devices.

Maria 200
The audio industry pushes expensive speaker cables that put the stereo signal through 4 solder joints and 4 additional pieces of metal. Daniel Hertz speaker connectors eliminate these unnecessary sources of signal degradation by sandwiching the bare copper wire between two brass plates, making a connection with no virtually no limitations in voltage and current, that last a lifetime, and are able to accept almost any size wire. The threaded rod that is the mechanical and electrical connection attaches to the amplifier output stage located inside the chassis, only millimeters away from the connector, adding no extra wire or materials to the signal path.
The Maria is as new on the outside as it is on the inside. 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 jewelry. Maria's chassis is artisan made, not industrially produced, and is at home with in 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.
