Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

TeJay Audio Reviewer - Stereo Times:


These speakers were placed in my upstairs system, if you go to Six Moons website and look in the archives for my review on the Perfect Set speakers there is a picture of the space, which is a type of second floor balcony with no back wall or side wall. The system is setup for near field listening. Yet, the Daisho speaker did very well with both the mid bass and excellent taut and extended bass. I would attribute this to the tuning of its back loaded 5.5 ft. horn loading. If you read my review for the details of what this speaker has to offer and you are intrigued, you might want to take the risk of the 30 day trail period. Also these are small speakers, so you don't have to break your back to audition them.


I'll still stick to what I said in my review, you need to get them up at least six inches off the ground to get them to 'sing" regarding their ability to sound-stage and image like a big panel speaker.


If you love big electrostatic panels, but have a small acoustic space-a speaker for you! My review on the Shinjitsu Audio Carbon Diasho speaker just went up on the Stereo Times website. As stated in the title of this thread, if you have always loved the sound of big electrostatic panels, but your listening space is small, this speaker will deliver that sonic perspective even though it’s quite minute in size. Beautifully built with an ESS Laboratories AMT and a horn loaded bass driver it does extremely well with both low wattage tube amps, think SET designs, along with sounding excellent with higher powered Solid State amplifiers. Take a look at the review for all the details and you might be interested in auditioning this speaker with the comfort that you get a 30 day return policy if is not to your personal taste.

I was initially put back by the small size of these little gems. I thought how could they make good bass from such a small 4 inch driver? Well to tell ya the horn thing really works! Also was unsure about the compressor but its smooth and has real good imaging. The only gripe is that the stand should be included in the price as I had to buy a 14 inch stand and that was not easy.

We had our final meeting of 2020 on December 2nd with Morris Emerick of Shinjitsu Audio demoing a pair of his unique speakers. They are a folded horn design marrying a Mark Audio Alpair mid-woofer to an ESS ATM tweeter. These compact speakers packed quite a punch with surprising bass performance in our large room. The ATM tweeter provided great air and sparkle in the top end and the speakers produced a convincing holographic image. I was quite impressed by what Morris has accomplished in a condensed package. For more information, check out the Shinjitsu Audio webpage.

I’ve been searching for a speaker with a specific sound, style and build quality. after many years and dozens of speakers, my search is over. The craftsmanship, design and overall tonality are outstanding. They fill the spectrum of sound beautifully, even at low volume. Just a crystalline, dimensional, lush sound. Simply put, these speakers are awesome.

Here’s, my conclusion regarding the Shinjitsu Audio Carbon Daisho speaker. It is an extremely well-built design using excellent internal parts, first-rate transducers and uses a very innovative back loaded horn approach to produce a great base foundation to the music in a very small cabinet. It offers an easy load that can be driven by low watt tube or solid-state amplifiers. As I shared in the review, to get it to its ultimate level of performance you need to place it on a riser about six inches off the ground. I would recommend that Mr. Emerick consider changing the height of the plinth or include a riser to address this one concern. I believe that if you have a small acoustic space and have always loved big electrostatic panels for their box-less spatial quality, see-through transparency, transient speed, micro-details, and purity in overall tonality, the Carbon Daisho speaker would be a great match for your system and listening environment.


Big panels do not do well in smaller acoustic spaces. However, this speaker does perform at a very high level, just like a planer in a large acoustic space. So, if you always dreamed about owning one of those large panel designs and just don’t have the room, I suggest you audition a pair of Carbon Daisho speakers. A great safety net for you is that Shinjitsu Audio has a 30-day return policy, if for any reason you are not satisfied.

My husband has been researching these items for a month now. He has hesitated to buy as the economy is poor in my area (Virginia) but he is my love and I bought the wood solo speakers. Needless to say he loves them! Happy husband happy home!

I was looking for a new type of speaker as I have owned Martin Logans, Quads, Polk Audio and LFT8B. I have been interested in trying back loaded horns. I found these listed on Audiogon and went to the website here for further questions. Mr Morris was very helpful in assisting me with questions as it is hard to know what a speaker sounds like without audition. I I had hoped these speakers sound like an electrostat with a more precise sound stage. Wide sound stage and wall to wall wide. Placement in my 30x20 foot room is 3 feet from back wall to sound best. Powered with pair of tube amplifiers 30 watts each and are plenty loud for casual listening. Company is very response to my questions. 5 Stars
