MarkAudio-SOTA’s medium-sized, two-way bookshelf speaker utilizes custom all-range symmetric driver technology to create a full range loudspeaker that encourages listeners to “Hear Our Difference”.

A simple control network complements the custom drivers, delivering music to the listeners while minimizing artificial processing. The speakers use a Billow waveguide baffle for optimum dispersion in practical room environments. Styled with a clean, minimalist industrial design, the speakers are produced in a finely lacquered finish at a level that is rarely seen at this price. Available in three colors (black, red and white) they are suitable for everything from stereo to home theatre and small studio use.

Key Features

MarkAudio-SOTA utilizes a number of key features to produce the uniquely rich, natural and detailed sound of their loudspeakers. From the Symmetrical Sound Field technology and simply elegant crossovers, to the All-Range Driver Approach, the speakers are built from the ground up with a goal to faithfully reproduce the music.

Built from the ground up
MarkAudio-SOTA loudspeakers are built from the ground up, including the cabinets, crossovers and speaker drivers. Many manufacturers choose off-the-shelf components that aren’t always a perfect match to their system design target.
Symmetrical Sound Field
MarkAudio-SOTA uses its own symmetrical technology. The dual, wide dispersion, shallow-profile cone drivers replace conventional cone-woofer and dome-tweeter combinations.
Global Design – The best engineers and designers from around the world
The global dream team at MarkAudio-SOTA recruited a global dream panel of experts to help tune the sound character, thus creating outstanding loudspeakers for discerning listeners.
All-Range Driver Approach
MarkAudio-SOTA’s unique dual-driver, all-range approach offers the rich midrange that is typical of a wide-range single speaker design, while providing a full frequency range extending from 40Hz to 25kHz, and the high-impact dynamics of more typical multi-way speakers.
The simple but elegant crossover design progressively transitions the higher and lower ranges of the audio signal to the driver optimized to handle that part of the spectrum.
Money Back Guarantee
We are so confident that you’ll have no problem getting great sound from your MarkAudio-SOTA loudspeakers that we offer you 30 days to order the speakers, get them home, set them up and listen to them before final decision.
Hear Our Difference

MarkAudio-SOTA searched the world to find the best designers and engineers in their respective fields with the goal to create a unique series of loudspeaker products that provide simple and faithful musical playback. The speakers employ a number of key features, such as wide-range driver-technology and minimal control networks to produce natural, detailed music that preserves the realistic richness of voices and instruments.

The Crossover Network

Our 1.8 kHz crossover frequency uses gentle 2nd order electrical and acoustic slopes that gradually blend the outputs, maximizing the advantages of our symmetric wide-dispersion drivers. The simple design, with few reactive components, also aids in amplifier matching, allowing MarkAudio-SOTA speakers to be easily driven by low-power designs.

The result is a 2-way loudspeaker without any obvious crossover transition, and a smooth, transparent but dynamic and natural musical response.
