MarkAudio-SOTA’s flagship 2-way, stand-mount loudspeakers combine Italian style with British engineering design that follow the company’s “Hear Our Difference” audio philosophy.
The speaker utilizes custom all-range symmetric driver technology to create a full range loudspeaker in an elegant and finely finished cabinet. [MA1] A minimalist control network complements the custom drivers, delivering music to the listeners while minimizing artificial processing. Laminated dual-core panels and polymers provide enclosures of maximum strength and acoustic stability. The result is statement-level sound quality for the discerning listener.

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 30kHz, 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.
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 Viotti Tower crossover network is a low-order design using a minimal number of components to reduce electrical interference. It exploits the exceptional range and symmetrical dispersion behaviour of our custom drivers to blend the outputs in a more progressive manner than the steeper crossover slopes often encountered.
The crossover components are mounted on a custom printed circuit board with heavy-gauge tracks for minimum losses. Key features are polypropylene-film capacitors with copper wires and two different types of inductor, optimised for their different functions.
The result is a 2-way loudspeaker without any obvious crossover transition, and a smooth, transparent but dynamic and natural musical response.
