Elipson Prestige Facet 8B Speakers (Pair)
Phenomenal in every facet
Neutral and accurate, the Elipson Prestige Facet 8B speaker delivers sound that is free from coloration and faithful to the original recording. Impressions of smoothness and serenity emanate from each track as it is masterfully reproduced, without any hint of harshness. The Prestige Facet 8B's high sensitivity allows it to be paired with any amplifier with a power rating of 85 W or less per channel. Its lively performance makes it an excellent surround sound speaker for a home cinema installation.
The Elipson Prestige Facet 8B speaker introduces a host of innovative technologies. The most visible is undeniably the ring of sculpted facets surrounding each driver, which gives the range its name. The multifaceted, sculpted silicone surround rings encircling each driver reduce the baffle effect and limit diffraction. The result is a more linear response curve and a smoother listening experience.
Elegant from sound to style
A rigorous design process ensures optimal acoustic performance, while an elegant finish allows the speaker to blend in harmoniously with your interior decor. The Prestige Facet 8B is available in black, walnut and white. Signs of a high-quality finish include a double-layer front panel to which a black or white lacquer is applied.
Medium-sized, it is equipped with a 17 cm low mid-range driver featuring a bullet-shaped phase plug to limit vibrations and, consequently, reduce distortion. A 25mm soft dome tweeter reproduces highs with finesse and precision.
Extra attention has been paid to the speaker's cabinet. The lacquered front panel is composed of two dense, thick materials and strengthened by several internal brackets. The speaker's steep-slope filter relies on highly efficient, audiophile-grade components. As for the finish quality, it is not overlooked and offers benefits such as premium-quality vinyl and a lacquered front panel.
