The natural sound of a live performance

Who wants that?

The JansZen Valentina

Electrostatic nuance and clarity
with bass and punch to match

No back wave -- easy setup

Elegant cabinetry suits any decor

Passive and active versions

Stand-mounts, too

Our stand mount loudspeaker is called the Carmelita.

Both the Valentina floor-stander and the Carmelita stand-mount are available in passive or active versions. Both models are compact at only about 40" [1m] tall. Both have the sonic hallmarks of much larger speakers.

The actives feature a high grade, on-board DAC and five independent inputs -- two analog and three digital. The analog inputs are sensitive enough not to need a preamp. The inputs automatically self-activate, based on which one has a signal, A remote control comes standard for volume and other functions.

Imagine eliminating your amplifier, preamplifier, DAC, and speaker cables, all at once, and getting not only more convenience, but also exquisitely clear and natural electrostatic sound.

There's a new special option available on the Valentina, called Sound Everywhere (SE). You get real-time, remote control selection between directive vs. omidirectional sound dispersion. In the sweet spot, the difference is between a you-are-there vs. a they-are-here experience. In omnidirectional mode, the sound is uniform throughout the room, so you still get great sound when you're not in a listening seat.

Let us hear from you

When the music sweeps us along like a sail in the breeze, you can figure that'll happen to you, too.

It takes high-tech to make organic sound
