Product sold in pairs.

The Elipson Prestige Facet 8B 80th Anniversary compact loudspeakers celebrate the 80th anniversary of the French high-fidelity brand Elipson and are only sold in 200 units. For the occasion, they adopt a beautiful matt black and gold finish, and also benefit from an upgrade of the loudspeaker filtering, with audiophile components that are more high-end than on the standard version.

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. 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 availble 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 midrange driver featuring a bullet-shaped phase plug to limit vibrations and, consequently, reduce distortion. A 25 mm soft dome tweeter reproduces highs with finesse and precision. The multifaceted, sculpted silicone surround rings encircling each driver reduce the baffle effect and limit diffractions. The result is a more linear response curve and a smoother listening experience.

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.

At Elipson, the back counts as much as the front. That is why our designers have created rounded, high-end dual speaker terminals which offer the possibility of biwiring and biamplifying while benefiting from silver-plated contacts to maximize signal transmission. Banana plugs may also be connected to the terminals.

Neutral and accurate, this speaker delivers sound which is free from colouration 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 experts weren’t wrong when they awarded the Elipson Prestige Facet 8B speaker with the Choc Classica and Diapason d’Or awards. A champion in its category!

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 make it an excellent surround sound speaker for a home cinema installation.

AN AUDIOPHILE DESIGN

The faceted crown surrounding each speaker is made of custom-cut synthetic rubber. It surrounds each speaker in order to limit the baffle effect and diffractions.

The response curve is thus less disturbed, more linear, for a softer listening experience.

An innovation made in Elipson.

NEUTRALITY AND ACCURACY

Devoid of any coloration, the Prestige Facet speakers deliver their music without adding or subtracting anything from the original recording.

The listening experience reveals a sensation of softness and serenity, each piece being faithfully reproduced with mastery and without aggression.

SMOOTHNESS AND PRECISION

In order to eliminate internal vibrations and resonances as much as possible, our engineers made the choice of a front panel made of two materials of different density and thickness, but also of a box with numerous internal reinforcements.

As for the steep filtering, it uses audiophile components.

The finish is not to be outdone, with a lacquered front panel and a high-quality vinyl cover.

STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY

The aluminium midrange drivers are ceramic surfaced, offering lightness, rigidity and low resonance in perfect harmony with the performance and velocity of the AMT tweeters.

DOLBY ATMOS® CERTIFIED

DOLBY ATMOS® is a surround sound reproduction technology for cinema and home theatre.

The DOLBY ATMOS® process allows the management of vertical sound in addition to the Dolby 5.1 or 7.1 (horizontal plane) formats, and thus creates total sound immersion.

To access the DOLBY ATMOS® experience, you need to equip your 5.1 or 7.1 system with dedicated speakers to emit sound vertically.
