What is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning? 

What is the first thing you do when you return home from a busy day at work? 

For many of us, there is only one answer: to turn on a speaker and let music flow through personal space. 

MIN7 is an elegant multi-function wooden speaker that is handcrafted and engineered to produce a pure audio and visual experience.

The market today is flooded with mass-produced products made with excessive plastic and metal parts. We all miss the time when products embodied craftsmanship, personality, and beauty.

Carpentry is our expertise and we love working with timber. But we are also aware that forestry practices can damage the environment. So we insist on using wood such as Teak, Oak, and Walnut from large furniture. Through special wood splicing technology, we join these wood panels together to create an environmentally friendly product.

Every MIN7 is made of joined solid wood panels of 15mm thickness. Its natural tone beautifully matches your home decor. 

MIN7 embeds 2 amplifier board chips to power 150W 2.1 stereo system. In order to engineer the best sound, our speaker drivers expert with over 26 years of experience specially designed a new 1” silk dome tweeter, 4” paper cone woofer, and 5.25” subwoofer to deliver the best transition from low to high frequencies.

The unique micro-horn design of tweeters and pointed spikes on the bottom improve the overall sound performance. MIN7’s unique 3 sound chamber design reduces interference between the subwoofer and main speaker, making the sound crisp and clear.

The cones on the woofers are made of paper and wool fibers. The cone paper forming technique is between pressed cone and semi-pressed cone to achieve better sound quality. The polypropylene cone subwoofer has low distortion. It is injection-molded with rubber, which yields a high strength bond between the cone and its surroundings.

MIN7 uses a differential amplifier circuit, which has great anti-noise capability and can better suppress electromagnetic interference. It has low distortion and wider dynamic range. 

In addition, every single MIN7 is handmade and exclusively adjusted by craftsman according to each of their qualities. Our tuning expert with more than 20 years of experience ensures it has harmonically rich sound. Any note that slips away from your ear, MIN7 will help you catch it. 

MIN7 has multiple pairing options. You can easily stream music to MIN7 from your favorite devices through WiFi (AirPlay), Bluetooth, USB, optical, coaxial, and analog audio cable.

You can also use MIN7 as WiFi or Bluetooth audio receiver and connect to existing audio devices or an active subwoofer to enhance the bass performance.

In order to support up to 24bit/192kHz resolution (High-Resolution Audio), MIN7 uses:

-amplifier chips TDA7492 and TDA7498

-digital audio receiver CS8416

-digital/analog converter (DAC) system CS4398 

-low-noise dual operational amplifier JRC5532 

Its higher sampling frequency and greater bit depth boast greater detail and texture.

Teak 

Noble wood from the Southeast Asia. It has high tensile strength, high oil content, and tight grain, which all contribute to making it durable and highly weather-resistant. It is an excellent choice for solid wood cabinet.

Walnut 

Its grain is usually straight, but becomes wavy toward the roots. Its color can vary from dull brown to rich purplish-brown. It is decay resistant and holds its shape well. It is therefore a top choice for furniture and a highly prized wood.

Oak

Heavy, strong, light colored hardwood with mostly straight-grain. It takes finish beautifully. Classic coarse texture and very durable. It is valued for its strength and resiliency. 

 Remote Control

Founded in 2013, a group of carpentry, design, engineering, and audio professionals came together to form the Minfort team. The Minfort design language is inspired by the endless blue sea and the splashing waves of Corpus Christi, a coastal city in Texas, USA. Our products aim to bring a sense of peace and nature to the users.
