10FH – Fullrange Hornspeakers
For me more than the beginning, for others it’s the goal
The perpetual evolution of my speaker range led to a small revolution: While I started modifying conventional understructures and drivers 30 years ago, I now have them manufactured completely in accordance with my very own specifications. Only in this way was it possible for me to meet the requirements regarding my ideal sound concepts.
The Monitor 10FH is my start in producing my own speaker range. It was not designed as a so-called “budget model” with sound compromise, but as full-featured standard loudspeaker.
The Monitor 10FH takes you directly to the music: coherent, vibrant and authentic. I dare say: Where other loudspeaker ranges end in terms of “flagships“, mine are only about to start – with the Monitor 10FH.

PRODUCTION AND PHILOSOPHY
I live and work in Central Switzerland next to beautiful Lake Lucerne, surrounded by mountains. Empowered by my wonderful family, I work with a team of unique experts to make those audio dreams come true. I take a lot of time to develop and manufacture high efficiency coaxial speakers, tube amps and DACs. Deeply rooted in audio history, I am also fully aware of today’s manufacturing advantages and apply them whenever they will be useful. Please take your time to experience my components and I can promise you, it will only take moments before you realize that you are listening to something special, something musical: a gateway to the music. Let me introduce you to some secrets behind the making of these products.
We at Tobian Sound Systems believe that the beauty of our audio products lies in the hands of the makers. I may be the originator and driving force, but the products have more than one father.
Our wire is very slowly dragged and carefully isolated with natural resin and then baked. The next step is the alignment of the wire on the core. The core of the transformer is made of a special, grain oriented steel, that only one company in the world makes – in Switzerland. Each layer of oval-section wire is then hammered into one homogenous surface. It is along the outside of this augmented surface that the signal will travel. Each layer is then isolated with mu-metal shielding before the next layer goes on. After a transformer is finished, it is submerged in natural resin, and baked. Every step of the process, the materials, the execution, the duration of each phase, the precision that only comes from experience, turns these transformers into something you cannot just buy. You have to be dedicated to have them made like this. It’s as if they are dreamt into reality. Put your hand on one of those transformers while the amp is on – are you sure it’s really on? You cannot tell. Like driving a Bentley: only when you look at the dashboard do you realize how fast you are really going.
