totaldac

Totaldac designs and builds speakers, all of them sharing the same original idea, they are made for Totaldac reference use but they can also be sold to customers.
Available models are d100, d110 and d120 but Totaldac is also open to sell custom speakers, selecting some technologies found in these 3 speakers with the customer, or some on-demand technologies like field coil midrange or active crossover.

d120 speakers

The d120 is the very high end speaker of Totaldac, made to develop the electronics and to demo a full system.
It will be used at the Munich High End show in May 2024.

This speakers are made of pure solid wood (from France), with oil finish for the cabinet, the horn is made of solid wood as well, the compression driver back chamber is made of solid wood as well and even more exceptional the driver frame is also made of wood for an even better sound.
It uses the same drivers and same crossover as the d110 but the cabinet is much more complex, internally and externally.
The design is curved in 3D for a better response to the acoustic waves, the inside is completly covered with wooden diffusors, the cabinet is much thicker with no parallel wall, more reinforced and is visually more appealing.
The sound is ultra real with this speaker, making you simply enjoy all musics, forgetting the system.

"The sound in that room was as impressive to me as the D120’s build quality. Played via a pair of D120s, some haunting female vocal music with a sparse piano accompaniment had such a wonderous sense of scale that it was easy to get lost in it. The speakers seemed right on the money tonally as well, and they conveyed the emotion in the singer’s lament just as competently as they did scale." Matt Bonaccio, SoundStage!

d110 speakers

The d110 is a high end speaker of Totaldac, made to develop the electronics and to demo a full system. Its drivers and crossovers are higher end than those of the d100.

This speakers are made of pure solid wood (from France), with oil finish for the cabinet, the horn is made of solid wood as well, the compression driver back chamber is made of soid wood as well and even more exceptional the driver frame is also made of wood for an even better sound.
These speakers are so fast that you get the "feeling of being there" with most music tracks, not just with some selected tracks.

During the design phase some music recorded by Totaldac in the large Totaldac auditorium have also been used.
This gave an absolute feeling of how these instruments should sound.
The speakers have also been tested with success in small rooms.
You can give them a chance against any other speaker at any price.

"Augmented by Brient's solid state amplification and D100 speakers with optional super tweeters and subs, the D1-Sublime made a Qobuz stream of Leonard Cohen's "Show Me the Place" as natural as I've heard it, with thoroughly believable textures, ultrahigh resolution, and terrific portrayal of rhythm and pace." Alex Halberstadt, Stereophile

Totaldac d100 speaker

The Totaldac d100 speakers have been designed to offer the most natural music reproduction while being compatible with your living room and without being too expensive.
Their high sensitivity allows them to produce a very controlled sound at all frequencies and with realistic and rich bass, making them suitable for all types of music genres, from classical music to electro.

"A big, standard looking 2.5-way loudspeaker that manages to transcend its looks with a sonic performance that draws you in and captivates with its rightness.
They are dynamic and detailed in a way that they just shouldn’t be and with a presentation that seems neutral and natural whether you play them loud or at more moderate volumes.
I want some!
Editor's choice"
Stuart Smith, HIFI PIG
"The sound was immediately pulled into focus with the d100s.
I’m not sure if I need anything else from a loudspeaker.
They are superb full-range speakers that are well worth the cost."
Marc Philips, PartTimeAudiophile
"The immediacy of the d100 allows the listener to interact with the magic of the music rather than observe sonic commodification,
which is all too often the case with many speakers with much higher price tags.
Totaldac d100 wins the 2021 Mono & Stereo Highly Recommended award."
Matej Isak, Mono&Stereo
"Plus qu'une enceinte hi-fi, c'est une enceinte pour écouter le réel." Diapason
"les d100 ont fait état d'une transparence et d'une énergie qui vous met tout de suite de bonne humeur. Incroyablement efficaces sur tous les registres, aucun message ne leur fait peur.
Jamais prises en défaut, elles libèrent la musique telle qu'elle a été enregistrée."
Jean Razzaroli, Vinyle&Audio
"La d100 est l'exemple même du haut rendement qui laisse s'exprimer la musique sans contraintes avec le sentiment du direct, et toutes les variations d'énergie et de timbres associées sans forcer." Vincent Cousin, Diapason
"Les D100 offrent un réalisme sonore assez phénoménal, sans contrainte apparente, de haute résolution sur une très large plage de fréquence." Bruno Castelluzzo, Haute Fidélité

Totaldac sub-d100 subwoofer

The sub-100 is a subwoofer made to extend the sub bass response of the d100 speakers up to 18Hz, and even more it can be placed in a corner of a room which is often more efficient for low bass than the main speaker location.
The sub-d100 uses the same bass driver as the d100 speakers for a perfect sound matching with the d100 speakers.
Due to the fact that the dimensions are exactly the same as the d100 speakers it is also perfectly matching the d100 visually.
The external crossover is connected from the main stereo amplifier outputs to the subwoofer amplifier XLR input.
The subwoofer amplifier is sold separately. Totaldac recommends the Amp-1 amplifier in monobloc version (1000W) as best matching amplifier.
This solution allows you to get very clean and detailed sub bass, so helpfull when listening symphonic orchestra, drum or organ.
One unit can be enough to complement a pair of d100 speakers.

"On listening, we were confronted with a mature, complete, organic and extremely detailed performance. It is a high-efficiency system with a sub that can range over all musical geniuses with authority and control up to live concert levels. It is noteworthy and one of the very few cases in my memory where the subwoofer improved the overall performance without giving the feeling of something added afterwards, a perception of emissive uniformity that made everything even more credible." GIONA ORLANDI, Quotidianoaudio
