French audio specialist Elipson has introduced a new range of loudspeakers, Inspired by monitor speakers of the 1970s. Its Heritage XLS15 are vintage in design but versatile in function. Supplied with two different bases and one optional Norstone stand, the manufacturer says mid-range definition and high-frequency extension characterise its audio attributes.

This 3-way loudspeaker has been tuned as a bass reflex design with front-firing flared port that can be plugged for further low frequency adjustment, depending on placement. It features a newly designed 30cm diameter cellulose coated bass unit with high power magnet, a 55mm diameter treated dome mid-range driver and a 22mm diameter silk dome tweeter, derived from the brand’s flagship Prestige Facet series. Sensitivity is rated at 92 dB.

A 2dB adjustment allows you to adjust mid and high frequency levels according to the listening room or music genre. Inserting the supplied base plinth creates a 7° tilt for perfect acoustic phasing, while an optional metal stand from sister company Norstone can be used to raise it by a further 19cm from the floor.

The 28kg Elipson Heritage XLS15 loudspeaker will be available in the UK from January, priced at £1,790 per pair. Vintage stands, for that finishing touch, sell for £199 per pair.
