Japanese audio brand Eclipse has announced that its iconic TD-M1 active desktop monitor system – one of our Stars of CES 2014 – is now available to purchase through the Apple Online Store.

In our review of the TD-M1s, we found them to offer "great stereo imaging" for the £1000 price tag, while we also struggled to think of any similar products that were quite as elegant in appearance.

Eclipse TD sales manager Paul Burnip said the Apple Online Store launch was recognition of the manufacturer's Apple-using customers and crucial to introducing the TD-M1s to a wider audience.

The TD-M1s comprise two speakers with integrated amplification and electronics in the right-hand speaker base, high-resolution 24-bit/192kHz USB-B inputs for use with desktop devices, and UPnP wi-fi streaming.

AirPlay and AirPlay Direct are also on board, which will let you stream music from your Apple devices, as well as a USB-A Direct input. There's also a 3.5mm stereo input for TVs and other devices.

Under the exterior, you'll find a 24-bit/192kHz digital-to-analogue converter; a Class D digital amp; and a multiple in/out (MIMO) Diversity Antennae, in addition to an inbuilt router for AirPlay connections.

Burnip said: "We have many Apple users as customers and this is a very important step in introducing our new active system to a wider audience. 

"Many musicians, engineers and producers who create on the Mac, are buying TD-M1’s as the ultimate quality control tool, because no other desktop speaker does the job as well."

Elegant!

Look great. Is a test in order anytime soon? Would love to know how they fare against the B&W's desktop speakers and other style/sound speaker sets.
