Super unique and rare speakers from Proclaim Audioworks. These rarely go on the market and we're lucky to have a pair in the shop to experience. With an MSRP of $30k at the end of production in CT USA, there aren't many sets around.
Each DMT-100 speaker consists of a trio of individual spherical enclosures arranged on a milled aluminum base that allows each driver's position to be independently adjusted for optimum performance. The included external crossover network allows further customization thanks to adjustable midrange/tweeter level controls that can be used to balance the stereo image and adjust tonality. This adjustment circuitry can also be removed from the circuit and replaced with precision audiophile resistors for the greatest possible signal purity.
The first major departure from traditional high-end design is in the DMT-100's unique Driver Manipulation Technology (i.e. desk lamp arms), which allows for individual adjustment of each driver's position and orientation. The system's milled aluminum speaker stands feature fully articulating individual arms for the tweeter and midrange drivers to allow for up to 12" of vertical and horizontal positioning flexibility. Additionally, all three of the driver enclosures can be individually aimed up to 45-degrees off-axis, thanks to acoustically decoupled rubber mounting rings. Because of these capabilities, the relative position of each of the system's six drivers can be individually tailored to optimize acoustic balance, phase, and frequency response for perfect time alignment and optimal performance in any room, and at any listening position. It's enough to keep a dedicated tweaker busy for years.
The second unique feature of the DMT-100 system lies in its adjustable external crossover circuitry, which provides the ability to individually adjust output for each midrange and tweeter to optimize balance and linearity for any environment and driver arrangement. Once the driver levels have been optimized, the installer or owner physically removes the L-Pad adjustment circuit and measures its resistance. Using a specially designed jumper, the L-Pad circuit is then replaced with audiophile-grade resistors of the proper value, which are hard-tapped into the circuit to create a crossover network of the cleanest possible signal path and purity.
Each of the DMT-100 system drivers is housed in an individual spherical enclosure constructed of a dual-layer fiberglass shell with a compacted sand core, creating a non-resonating and extremely attractive enclosure. Their spherical shape provides the enclosures with superior frequency response linearity and symmetry as well as greater rigidity for reduced resonance when compared to conventional 'box' enclosures. Additionally, because there are no parallel surfaces, the problem of bass distortion due to standing wave formation is eliminated.
We have tested these speakers in our shop and they are working as they should.
Condition is very presentable but the high gloss black finish does show some scratches and chips on close inspection which would be hard to spot a few feet back. We have highlighted these areas in our pictures.
Your purchase includes the speakers, stands, crossovers, and cables connecting the crossovers to the speakers.
These can be shipped freight on a single pallet for a flat $600 anywhere within the lower 48 US States. If you're outside of this area please inquire as we ship worldwide. Local courier also available.
SkyFi Cosmetic Notes:
- Misc paint chips on scratches on various drivers.
- Misc paint chips on crossovers.
- Minor cosmetic blemishes throughout consistent with age.
5 way binding posts for speaker cable inputs.
Big beautiful musical sound with little fatigue.

Our speaker evaluation process starts with a visual inspection of all drivers. We are looking for damaged or deteriorating woofer surrounds, dented tweeter domes, and cone damage. We also inspect the speaker connection points for loose or broken connectors.
After the initial visual inspection we connect the speakers to a reference amplifier with our preferred test tracks. With the speakers placed with proper distance we listen to each driver to make sure that they are producing the intended frequencies with no signs of distortion or rattle. During listening tests with test tracks we check for proper stereo imaging and bass response at various listening levels. If there are any audible signs of issues, the speakers are taken to the bench where we perform a frequency sweep to isolate the issue so that it can be resolved by component repair or replacement.
Our subwoofer evaluation process starts with a visual inspection of all drivers. We are looking for damaged or deteriorating woofer surrounds, cone damage, or rubbing voice coils. We also inspect the input connections for damage.
After the initial visual inspection, we connect the sub at our bench and perform a sine wave sweep from about 200Hz down to around 10Hz. During this sweep we are listening for excessive rattle or other signs of improper function. If the sweep passes, we then increase the input level to evaluate how the woofer performs at high output levels. If the woofer has built in crossover features or multiple connection options these features are tested at this time.
We complete the subwoofer evaluation by feeding the unit with an audio signal in conjunction with our house music system to see how it responds to low frequency content in real world conditions while paired with a full range system.
