MBL
101 E MKII Radialstrahler

The “Radialstrahler“ ensures equitable distribution of energy throughout the whole room and thus works in perfect harmony with its environment. It’s in the lower middle tone range that the MBL 101 E MK II really shows its special qualities. This is the range in which the loudspeaker connection to the air in the room is as problematic as it is decisive for the quality of the sound because it is the point that determines the naturalness and flexibility of the sound. And as true art is created by attention to details, MBL has given the 101E MKII two different loudspeaker cables which enable two separate entry points to the chassis. At the same time, a variety of different materials allows you to choose further options. All this means that the MBL 101 E MK II achieves an incredible level of flexibility. Their masterpiece brings music together with your home environment in perfect harmony.

The technological tour de force has continually redefined audio playback for over 30 years. 101 E MKII’s are the refined version of the earlier 101e Radialstrahler which garnered worldwide recognition as a truly great and classic loudspeaker. A speaker that is equally competent at reproducing the delicacy of a string quartet and the bone-crushing transient dynamics of a rock performance. Combining performance, looks, and luxury, the 101 E MKII does not produce sound as a conventional forward-firing point source, but as genuine 360-degree-radiating omnidirectional spheres. “Radialstrahl” means to “emit sound in a circular signal.”

The tweeter, midrange, and bass modules are each pulsating spheres, while a custom-designed subwoofer module is housed below. Each hand-finished 101 E MKII is a thing to behold — a sculptural device that benefits from classic German attention to detail, and obsession with perfection.

In practice, the concept is not as easy, of course. MBL had to develop and process the components and the materials that create such a totally new sound adventure.

The Radialstrahler concept includes a circular vertical arrangement of lamellas around an axis for each frequency range (tweeter, midrange driver, and subwoofer). On the upper side, these lamellas are firmly glued in a thrust bearing, and on the lower side, they are connected to a moving coil. If a pulse of the music is now transmitted from the amplifier to the speaker, these slightly bent lamellas (therefore the Radialstrahler is also called “Biegeschwinger”) are oscillated – they radiate sound waves, in this case, music. The result is a sound of unusual acoustic space and realism that is absolutely free from coloring, that is neutral and homogenous.

In order to meet the high demands, especially concerning realism, the numerous lamellas being arranged around the axis in the tweeter and midrange driver are made from one of the highest-quality materials: they are manually made from carbon fiber, pressed under high pressure, and hardened at an exact temperature. The assembly of the exactly controlled components requires absolute precision in fine mechanics.

The same applies to the lamellas of the woofer, which show the lowest sound distortion when they are manufactured from an aluminum/magnesium alloy.

With other procedures that are no less complex, we optimize the sound of all three systems in order to avoid distortions, vibrations, and other undesired modifications of the sound. Thus, MBL attaches importance to a highly effective system for cooling the moving coils, so that the coils only convert a very small part of the fed energy into heat that may have an influence on the sound. For such a high pulse power like that of the Radialstrahler (2200 W), this influence may be important. The MBL 101 E MKII still reproduces the fastest musical pulses like that of an orchestra neutrally and without any distortions, when many other speaker systems already have to give up.

In order to create a solid basis for the homogenous realism of the three Radialstrahler systems, MBL integrated a subwoofer into the MBL 101 E MKII that has also been carefully developed and that substantiates the precise play in the subwoofer range. Like the tweeter, the midrange driver, and the woofer the subwoofer is submitted to the objective of the overall system as a whole: the natural sound. Accordingly, it is perfectly integrated into this 4-way speaker system which is unique – not only with regard to technology.

The sound of the Radialstrahler should be just perfect, but its appearance should not be less: MBL's acoustical showpiece should not only be just beautiful; it should be an esthetical pleasure, making the avant-garde design justified by its functioning a statement of the senses. And we have been confirmed from many sides that we got very close to our objective.

The MBL 101 E MKII simply lights up with natural elegance: It is modern and timeless in one, it differs in every respect from conventional speakers, but it is discreetly beautiful. It is a harmonic complement to every stylish living space without making a negative impression as musical furniture. especially as the Radialstrahler really sounds brilliantly everywhere). But whoever regards it deliberately – and which visitor would not like to do that? – will be bewitched by its appearance: even when looking at it, the manually selected materials make you feel like touching, feeling the brilliant workmanship.

But listening is believing. And it's safe to say that the new 101 E MKII provides a thrilling and unforgettable musical experience. Whether you're hearing it for the first or the hundredth time, the 101 E MKII is bound to raise goosebumps, to increase the pulse. With the 101 music doesn't seem to come from the speakers, but is simply there, in all its majesty and beauty.
- New Base Drivers - offering more control
- Improved Upper Midrange
- New subwoofer cabinet design, aquatic center more improved bottom end
- New Crossover Technology
