French manufacturer Elipson has  announced the Prestige Facet range of loudspeakers.

The Prestige Facet Series is a comprehensive 14 model range, that features stand-mount and floor-standing speakers, centre-channel speakers, sub-woofers, bi-polar surrounds and Atmos specific speakers, all for both two and multi-channel applications.

The first product from this new range to hit the UK will be the Prestige Facet 8B. This stand-mount/bookshelf loudspeaker promotes many of the range generic technological innovations including the most visible… the crown of carved facets  surrounding each drive unit, from where the range takes its name. This  multi-faceted carved silicone trim surrounding each speaker is intended to reduce diffraction and create a more linear and softer response curve.

Within its mid-sized cabinet dimensions, this bass-reflex, rear ported design houses a 170mm mid/bass drive unit with central aluminuim dust cap to eliminate turbulence and distortion. A 25mm soft dome tweeter takes care of the high frequencies, whilst the cabinet enclousre boasts a front baffle produced from two inert materials, stiffened by internal cross-sectional ribs.  An optional base plinth offers additional stability.

The Prestige Facet 8B is available in black, walnut and white vinyl cabinet finishes with black or white matching high gloss lacquered front baffles, at a UK SRP of £549 per pair.

Elipson’s new Prestige Facet Series is available from selected UK dealers with prices ranging from £229 for the Facet 11 C Centre speaker up to £1,590 for a pair of Facet 24 F floor-standers.
