Inspired by monitor speakers of the 1970s and the demand for retro audio products, Elipson Audio announces the introduction of their new Heritage XLS15 loudspeakers.
Vintage in design but versatile in function, this new Elipson speaker is supplied with two different bases and one optional Norstone stand, enabling the sound to be directed towards the discerning listener.
This powerful 3-way loudspeaker has been tuned as a bass reflex design with front-firing flared port that can be plugged for further low frequency adjustment depending on placement. Driver compliment includes a new 30cm diameter cellulose coated bass unit with high power magnet, a new 55mm diameter treated dome mid-range driver covering nearly three octaves and a 22mm diameter silk dome tweeter, found on the flagship model of the Prestige Facet series.
A finite measurement of 2dB allows you to adjust the mid and high frequency levels according to your listening room or music genre. In addition, inserting the base plinth (supplied) creates a 7° tilt for perfect acoustic phasing, or the optional metal stand from sister company Norstone raises it by a further 19 cm from the floor.
Live energy and bass control, mid-range definition and purest high-frequency extension characterise the audio attributes of this new loudspeaker.
Elipson’s new Heritage XLS15 loudspeaker will be available in the UK from January through selected authorised dealers at an SRP of £1,790 per pair. Vintage stands will be £199 per pair.
