T+A makes incredible amps, but did you know their stereo speakers are also stunning?! The T+A Criterion S 2200 CTL offers warm, detailed sound. CTL stands for “Compensated Transmission Line” which is an alternative to the bass reflex system wherein the sound guide behind the bass drivers is long, like an organ pipe, to generate extremely low frequencies.
This construction method also lends to a heavier speaker which completely eliminates resonance effects and creates a more spacious sound. To be more specific, the mid-range driver has been upgraded from their last model and combines with the textile treble unit and organic baffle to create what they’re calling “Constant Directivity,” which is all shop talk to say that it disperses sound elegantly and evenly in any space.
The Criterion S 2200 CTL comes in a wider variety of finishes than any other option we’ve featured, from high gloss carbon or black lacquer, to arctic silver, white lacquer, and even dark walnut and whitewashed oak. Whatever wood combination is already featured in your home, T+A is prepared to fit right in.
The sensitivity on this model is 88dB, and the nominal impedance is 4 ohm. If you’re looking for a unique listening experience with incredible bass response, we’d love to demonstrate these tower speakers for you in person.
