What is it good for?

Talisman speakers are designed to sit on your desk, but they have plenty of power to fill the whole room. They are self-powered, meaning they can be paired with almost anything. The built-in phono preamp input allows for direct connection to record players.


For us, the reason that justifies the existence of Talisman is having exceptional sound quality. But every manufacturer says that. At Serene Audio, we back up our claim by showing you how we did it. Time to get your geek on!


Expensive ultra low distortion driver with fast transient response. Learn More


Wood, Leather, and Brass create a beautiful pallet of colors and textures Learn More


Meticulously designed internal amplifier saves the integrity of the signal Learn More


Our palette of materials consists of wood, leather, and metal. They provide a beautiful combination of colors and textures.

We maintain a high level of craftsmanship by a deep understanding of our materials, and by working with them patiently. We are sure when you hold one of our speakers in your hand, you will appreciate the quality. See More


Our goal is to create products that induce visceral joy with every glance. We are often asked whether Talisman design was inspired by the work of Antoni Gaudí. The truth is, Talisman emerged out of a few odd strokes of pen on a sketchbook, and so were many others, but Talisman was the design we fell in love with. It just looked and felt right.

“I brought your speakers to Magnolia Audio so I could try multiple subwoofers. They were blown away by the speakers. They brought in everyone to hear them. I wish you could hear it. It sounds as good as my B&W PM1s!!!!” Lou. S.

“I just wanted follow up so you know how successful these are "in the wild." I was pleased and surprised at how well they image, and the sound is so clean. They're on at least 8 hours a day in my office, playing everything from grunge rock to choral symphonies - whatever mood strikes me, and they enhance it all. Thanks for a great product!” Bruce. S.

“I LOVE the speakers, by the way. Fidelity excellent and design is just gorgeous.” Leslie. H.

“Right out of the box, I was impressed. I can't believe how a 'computer's speaker can be so laid back and yet detailed at the same time. Not sure how you guys did it but great job!!! I plan on buying another pair or two as presents for Christmas time. ” Lawrence. C.
