The following is a press release issued by Estelon.
February 21, 2017 - The new Model YB is an asymmetrical three-way design delivering the finest sound and placing listeners at the heart of the audio landscape.
As with all Estelon models, the cabinets feature a proprietary composite material specially developed to maximize rigidity and eliminate cabinet coloration. The cabinet shape was carefully designed to minimize vibration and resonance, facilitate in-room placement and optimize performance of the drive units.
An 8-inch woofer features an extremely stiff aluminum cone which results in tremendous bass precision and deep natural bass. A 5.25-inch mid-woofer, known for its sliced paper cone technology where the slices are filled with damping glue, dramatically reduces breakup modes in the diaphragm delivering an accurate and natural sound. A beryllium membrane 1-inch tweeter provides extreme rigidity along with very light weight and high damping. This results in negligible distortion, distinct clarity, and an incredibly fast and dynamic sound.
Estelon follows a meticulous hand-crafted approach which includes careful testing and pair matching of drivers and very fine tuning of all the ultra-high quality internal components resulting in a life-like captivating sonic performance.
The YB retails for $21,900 US or $28,900 Canadian.
