Elipson Audio has announced the final addition to its Heritage line of speakers. The brand new XLS7 book-shelf model joins its larger siblings, the XLS11 and XLS15, to create a complete family of speakers.
The XLS7 brings all the performance elements of the larger models and combines them with a compact form factor to give further flexibility when integrating into smaller rooms. The XLS7 is vintage in terms of styling and design, however the performance side of this loudspeaker is anything but.
Blending vintage aesthetic with a contemporary sound was key for the engineers in Paris. Therefore this two-way speaker is a bass reflex design with a front-firing flared port. It features a 6.5” domed drive unit for the midrange and for the high frequencies the twin magnet 0.87” silk dome tweeter which performs so successfully in the XLS11 and XLS15. As with the other Heritage models in the range the XLS7 has the additional flexibility of a fine adjustment on the front of the speaker.
This can tune the amplitude of mid and high frequencies by + or – 2dB to allow for variables in the listeners room. Musicality was key when developing the book-shelf XLS7, this is reflected in the speed and control of the drive unit across the frequencies.
Partnering stands have also been designed to match both the aesthetic and the performance required for these speakers.
The XLS7 speakers are designed in Paris and engineered in Burgundy and are priced as follows: XLS7 speaker – £799.00 per pair, Stands – TBC.
The Elipson XLS7 speakers with stands (to follow) are available now from Elipson Heritage retailers or by contacting the company’s UK distributor, Avoke Ltd.
