A continuous pursuit of absolute perfection   www.estelon.com

Estelon ExtremeSummer 2014 sees the debut of the revolutionary new flagship loudspeaker from Estelon. Building on the design credentials of the X series, the Extreme incorporates the very latest technology and unique features, all designed to achieve state-of -the-art performance.

This monumental sculpture of a speaker, standing up to 2 meters high, craves for attention through Estelon’s signature design. Extreme gives you a perception of the quality it performs, even before you embrace the entrancing sound it delivers.

The proprietary marble based composite material with the finest aesthetic finish presents the familiar sculpture-like design that Estelon has trademarked over the years. Following the principles that have proven itself with every product launched by Estelon, the shape and the material of the speaker are an essential part of the powerful performance the speaker provides. The truly mesmerizing experience begins when the design and the technology fuse together, as the audience will be left in awe after being absorbed in seamlessly blended soundscape.

Every aspect of Extreme’s sound is rich, dynamic and immersive. All the details are delivered with perfection, providing the listener with a truly natural and pure experience. The sound of Extreme is an event on its own, where the speaker itself completely disappears as a sound source, replacing its presence with the venue in which the recording was made. The Extreme features adjustability to allow tailoring to room dimensions and seating position, whilst maintaining perfect phase alignment across the full audio bandwidth. Has perfection been attained?

 X SeriesIn the Estelon X Series loudspeakers, the user can find a melding of both aesthetic beauty and  performance into one. Their shape - the E-lon cabinet - allows for ease of integration of the speaker into a room; beautiful like sculptures, but at the same time totally 'invisible' when listening to the music.

Estelon - a continuous pursuit of absolute perfection by mixing science and art. High-End loudspeakers where aesthetics are driven by functionality and innovation, whilst never forgetting the emotion. Handmade in Estonia by Alfred & Partners OÜ.

X DiamondThe X Diamond is far more than simply speaker drivers in a cabinet. It is a genuine musical instrument in its own right. One that, when carefully integrated into system and room, is capable of connecting the listener to music in a most profound way. Everything expressed naturally and simply with balance, order and measure. It possessed an eminently musical temperament that is immediately evident upon your first and each subsequent listening experience.

Emotional. Involving. Engaging. A simple perspective of balance – perfect, captivating, providing exceptionally wide imaging, deep sound staging and thrilling life like dynamics, while building and delivering expectations of refined power and listening pleasure

XAThe Estelon XA is both Alfred Vassilkov’s first tribute to the Estelon brand and the birth of a new approach to loudspeaker design. Chief among the physical design elements is the use of the E-lon cabinet form, having been developed and honed over a five year period; its design and construction allow it to easily couple with even difficult room acoustics.

With the XA, the most beloved element of Estelon products has been reaffirmed: Simplicity. The “minimal” electrical second order crossovers, the raffinated mix of other elements as drivers and acoustic enclosure, has allowed Estelon to find again, trusted and confirmed qualities, a rediscovering and refinement of old but never obsolete design principles, technological principals that are the true expression of Estelon’s sonic aesthetics.

XBThe Model XB is much awaited addition to the Estelon X-Series. Sharing the similar E-lon shape with XA and X Diamond, it is a smaller speaker designed for smaller listening rooms (suggested room size 20-50 m2) while keeping the hallmark of Estelon loudspeakers – the exceptionally wide imaging, deep sound staging and thrilling life like dynamics.

The Model XB will surprise a listener with very defined and unexpectedly deep bass, clear and articulate mid and extremely good dynamics in high frequencies. The Model XB is capable of reproducing the finest nuances of music.

XCInspired by the development of the Estelon XA, the Estelon XC offers much of the XA’s qualities in a smaller and less expensive full range monitor. Exceptionally wide imaging, deep sound staging and thrilling life like dynamics are a hallmark of Estelon loudspeakers and the XC is no exception.

By combining these legendary sonic attributes with a musically detailed presentation, Estelon has again redefined the standard reference in a small speaker design. Cosmetically, like its full-sized, floor-standing brother, the diminutive XC features the same seductively shaped E-lon cabinet and multi coated lacquer finish. When high-resolution performance is required, the Estelon XC is the ideal choice for listening rooms where the larger Estelon XA would be impractical or excessive.

 Estelon Workshop  For Estelon, the new brand, the visionary development started in 2006 when Alfred Vassilkov started to analyze materials and technologies for producing cabinets with streamlined shapes that could not only reproduce the best sound but also assimilate into an interior, with their elegant “sculpture” look. Years of work had led him to a proprietary, crushed marble based composite. The material having excellent stiffness and damping factors, as well as technical features that allowed for the creation of cabinets with a design that enhances the sound reproduction capability of the system as a whole.

Estelon WorkshopThe special E-lon shape of the loudspeaker creates ideal conditions for sound reproduction. Its rounded form excludes corner reflections. A narrowing of the tweeter area - the front panel sculpted - to achieve zero-phase at the listening point, while its larger radiuses maintain their excellent influences on the direction diagram. The cabinet becomes wider and deeper at its base for both stability and to allow for the volume required for effective low frequency reproduction.

Finally, every loudspeaker produced must pass Alfred & Partners extreme level of quality control - each pair of loudspeakers is assembled, tuned and then listened to individually. And lastly, all the products are handmade in Estonia, to their exacting standards.

 

Alfred & Partners, the Tallinn based design studio and think tank, is not simply a business but a dedication, a dedication to a single, heartfelt idea - the production of Instruments, Sound Diffusers, Sculptures - capable of unveiling the rich, emotional tapestry of music in a personally involving way.

For more than 25 years, the designer and founder, Alfred Vassilkov, has been designing loudspeakers - achieving success both in design and patents - with developed products, in Europe. A decision was made - that to establish his own brand based on his gathered experience and knowledge.

Such dedication carries with it the implicit responsibility of a wholly uncompromising approach to audio design. Pride of craftsmanship shares equal footing with sonic innovation. Their visionary achievements, their quest for musical truth, continuously pushing the envelope - the result is a product line that offers unrivaled musical revelation packaged in designs of unparalleled beauty.

More importantly, we hope that their efforts can, in some small way, offer a key that assists listeners in unlocking the vast structure of emotion that is music."
