MarkAudio-SOTA’s small bookshelf speakers combine Italian style with British engineering design that follow the company’s “Hear Our Difference” audio philosophy.

The speakers utilize a single all-range symmetric driver to create a full range loudspeaker in an elegant and finely finished cabinet.

Our proprietary minimalist control network [MA1] intelligently controls the driver, delivering pure music to the listener while minimizing artificial processing. Laminated dual-core panels and space-age polymers provide enclosures of maximum strength and acoustic stability. The result is statement-level sound quality for the discerning listener.

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 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 single, wide dispersion, shallow-profile cone driver replaces conventional dual 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 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.
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.
