    Elan 15 is the larger of the two bookshelf speakers in this new range. It has been designed to hold true to Epos's purist principles of simple crossover, well-behaved drive units and clean understated aesthetics, yet deliver a 'big-speaker' performance. It has a larger cabinet and woofer cone than Elan 10 and, as a result, offers notable advantages in sensitivity, bass output and power handling. As you would expect, the Epos design philosophy delivers the very best sound quality and musical performance.


    Design

    Epos has applied the finest wood veneers, for a high-quality finish. To minimize unwanted vibration and coloration, extensive horizontal and vertical internal bracing has been added to the sturdy 18mm MDF cabinets. For optimum performance, Elan 15 should be stand mounted. Epos make a stand to suite this and other Elan models.


    Elan 15 is supplied with an audiophile baffle with no visible fixing screws, grille-fixing holes or cloth. The baffle fits snugly around the tweeter and is gently contoured around the woofer. So, unlike a conventional grille frame, there are no obstructions or sharp edges to cause reflections and sound colorations.


    For a more family-friendly appearance and improved protection, optional cloth-covered grilles are packed in the carton. It's simplicity itself to change them over.


    Tweeter

    Epos has developed a new soft-dome tweeter. By using virtual-performance CAD simulation tools, Epos has achieved very high performance with a sound which combines clarity and smoothness, in equal measure.


    The new tweeter has a low resonance frequency, high sensitivity and extended high frequency response. With its 25mm (one inch) doped-fabric dome, short horn, high-temperature Ferro-fluid cooled voice-coil, and shielded neodymium magnet, it is capable of high output levels for extended periods.


    Epos has also developed a brand new 187mm bass/mid driver for the Elan 15. This is built on to an open-frame cast aluminium alloy chassis with a generously ventilated spider and vented magnet pole, to minimize colorations and distortions.


    Mid-Bass

    This bass/mid unit features a high-quality polypropylene cone and 'bullet'-shaped dust cap. These form a stiff yet pliable, well-damped structure which retains its shape, even under high power, and help the woofer to produce a dynamic sound, with a very even frequency response and smooth roll off.


    The woofer is loaded by a good-sized port, flared at both ends to reduce turbulence, to produce more deep, clean, detailed bass than expected from such a modest cabinet, coupled with a clear and smooth mid-range.


    This medium-sized speaker is much more sensitive than you'd expect, making it suitable for use with a wide range of amplifiers, from as small as 20 watts to as large as 120 watts.


    Crossover

    In typical Epos fashion, the Elan 15 crossover is as simple as we can make it: both the woofer and tweeter networks are 2nd order filters at 3.2 kHz. To ensure the highest sound quality, all the resistors are metal oxide, all the capacitors are high-quality polypropylene-foil dielectric, and internal wiring is solid core. Inductors are designed for low distortion even at high powers: air-core for the tweeter and an over-sized laminated-iron cored coil for the woofer. The input terminals are bi-wirable.


    Detail

    We paid great attention to every single minute detail during the design of the Elan 15, to give customers the best sound at the best price. It comes as no surprise that this elegant speaker will have you in awe from the first note. In addition to the astonishing bass power for its size, sound stage, depth and detail are truly exceptional, with a clarity that outshines the competition and many higher priced speakers.


    This is a truly eye and ear-opening loudspeaker that will keep you enthralled listening to your favorite tracks for many years to come.

    Elan 35 Speakers - Black

    Elan 35 is the largest floor-stand speaker in this new range. Its design holds true to the purist principles followed by Epos. The two woofers work together at low frequencies to provide even higher sensitivity and power handling than the bookshelf models - in addition to delivering deeper and more powerful bass. We believe this design philosophy delivers the very best sound quality and musical performance for the money.


    Design

    Only the finest real-wood veneers are selected, book-matched and hand-laid. Several coats of polyurethane are applied and polished for a high-quality finish. To minimise unwanted vibration and coloration, extensive horizontal and vertical internal bracing are positioned inside the sturdy 18mm thick MDF cabinets. For optimum performance and stability, they should be fitted with the plinths supplied, together with the adjustable spiked feet, designed to decouple unwanted energy from the cabinet into the floor.


    Elan 35 is supplied with two baffles. The standard audiophile baffle with no visible fixing screws is fitted. If required, this can easily be swapped for the alternative cloth covered version, which is designed with the same profile as the naked baffle. Both types of baffle fit snugly around the tweeter and are both gently contoured around the woofers. So, unlike a conventional grille frame, there are no obstructions or sharp edges to cause reflections and sound colorations. The sound from both types of baffle will therefore sound similar.


    Tweeter

    Epos has developed a new soft-dome tweeter for the Epic and Elan range. By using virtual-performance CAD simulation tools, this new tweeter has been designed to achieve the accuracy and speed of a metal dome but with smoothness associated with a soft dome. It has a low resonance frequency, high sensitivity and extended high frequency response. With its 25mm (one inch) doped-fabric dome, short horn, high-temperature Ferro-fluid cooled voice-coil and shielded neodymium magnet, it is capable of high output levels for extended periods. Its natural high sensitivity is necessary to match the much increased output from the new bass and mid-range drivers.


    Mid-Bass

    A new long-throw eight-Ohm 187mm bass/mid driver has been developed for the Elan 35. Built on to an open-frame cast-aluminium alloy chassis, with a generously ventilated spider and vented magnet pole, this driver minimises colorations and distortions while allowing greater sound pressure levels than earlier Epos drivers.


    The bass/mid units feature a high-quality polypropylene cone and 'bullet'-shaped dust cap. These form a stiff yet pliable, well-damped structure which retains its shape, even at high power. This helps the woofers to produce a dynamic sound, with a very even frequency response and naturally smooth roll-off. The lower woofer is rolled-off by the crossover (filtered) so that it only plays bass, allowing the top mid-woofer to play bass and mid-range smoothly. The mid-woofer is rolled-off (filtered) at higher frequencies by the crossover to integrate properly with the tweeter. This is essentially a true 2 ½ way configuration.


    Both woofers are loaded by a very large diameter port, flared at both ends, to reduce turbulence. Together they produce plenty of clean deep bass coupled with a clear, smooth and detailed mid-range. In some rooms, or in placing them close to a wall or corner of a room, this may be too much, so we have supplied a custom foam bung to fit inside the entrance to the port to restrict the airflow and roll-off the bass earlier.


    A special feature of this floor-standing speaker is its high sensitive, making it suitable for use with a wide range of amplifiers, from as small as 10 watts to as large as 200 watts into 4 Ohms. So, tube fans should find this amp a perfect match.


    Crossover

    In typical Epos fashion, the Elan 35 crossover is as simple as we can make it: both the woofer and tweeter networks are 2nd order filters at 800Hz and 3.2kHz. To ensure the highest sound quality, all the resistors are metal oxide, all the capacitors are high-quality polypropylene-foil dielectric types and internal wiring uses proprietary solid-core wire covered in a sponge sheath to prevent vibration. Inductors are designed for low distortion even at high powers: air-core for the tweeter and an over-sized laminated-iron core for the woofer. All connections to drive units and crossover are hand soldered. The input terminals are bi-wirable, using a proprietary metal terminal panel with solid metal binding post equipped for 4mm plus and large spade lugs.


    Detail

    We paid great attention to every single minute detail during the design of the Elan 35, to give customers the best sound at the best price. It comes as no surprise that this elegant speaker will have you in awe from the first note. In addition to the astonishing bass power, detail and depth, sound stage, depth and detail are truly exceptional, with a clarity that outshines the competition and many higher priced speakers.

    Encore 50 Speakers


    Have a question about this product? Please email our href=mailto:audioadvisor@soundstagedirect.com>audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    There is no substitute for the pure musical involvement and enjoyment to be experienced when listening to the new Epos Encore 50. This unique Epos Flagship loudspeaker has been 3 years in the making but, there is no doubt the time taken to develop this exceptional loudspeaker has been well worth the wait.


    Each and every part of the Epos Encore 50 has been developed by Epos engineers to a standard not previously achieved by the company. From the original design concept through to the cabinet construction, speaker drive units, crossover and final voicing, the Encore 50 stands superior in every way.


    Cabinet

    It is tall and imposing yet exhibits elegance synonymous with Epos. Standing 1.2 metres high, it is deeper rather than wide and is supplied with a strong stylish painted MDF plinth to support its 50 kg weight and spread its footprint for improved stability and mechanical decoupling. Fully adjustable turned aluminium and steel spiked feet can raise or lower the speaker to adjust or tilt the level. The cabinet itself is made from a composite of birch-plywood and MDF which has been extensively strengthened internally using plywood bracing within the mid-range and bass enclosures.


    To ensure the lowest colouration, the cabinet and bracing have been optimised, following accelerometer measurements and listening tests. Hand selected and book-matched real wood veneer has been chosen give the most luxurious finish on an Epos speaker so far.


    Separate Bass, Mid-range and Crossover sections of the cabinet are hermetically sealed and allow the Crossover to be located in a convenient section at the bottom of the cabinet, accessed via the large, ventilated terminal panel on the bottom rear with a letter box opening in the plinth. All drive units are separately wired to the crossover section, using custom Epos solid core wire.


    The bass enclosure has a volume of 43 litres. Two 220mm woofers are bass-reflex loaded by one large diameter 90mm port, positioned mid-way between the woofers and flared at both ends to minimise port turbulence and harmonic distortion. The height and spacing of the woofers has been chosen to minimise the 'floor-bounce' cancellation, optimise bass output and ensure a smooth bass-mid range transition in room. The mid-range unit is in its own, braced, 8 litre sealed-box enclosure.


    Drive Units

    The 2 x 220 mm woofers and 158 mm mid-range cones are made from a Kevlar/carbon fibre/pulp mixture to combine high rigidity, with good inherent damping and feature concave dust caps coupled tightly to the cone. Frequency responses of both woofer and mid-range are inherently very smooth. They each incorporate a copper shorting ring in the magnetic circuit to reduce and linearise inductance and therefore, reduce harmonic and inter-modulation distortions at high sound pressure levels. The two woofer cones couple acoustically at low frequencies and are port loaded for extremely high power handling.


    The tweeter is a specially developed version of the Epos Mi tweeter, with anodised aluminium dome, Kapton voice coil former, braided lead-out wires and Ferro-Fluid damping. The centre pole is damped under the dome and vented into a contoured, felt-filled, rear chamber to damp the fundamental resonance frequency.


    Crossover

    The crossover design of the Epos Encore 50 is revolutionary. It allows the user unparalleled flexibility to compensate for individual room acoustics, without compromising sound quality in any way. The tonal balance of the speaker may be easily changed by the user to increase or decrease the tweeter and midrange output in 1.5dB steps, via an aperture in the bottom of the speaker and plinth. The crossovers use high-grade customised 'Epos' polypropylene capacitors and non-polarised electrolytic capacitors, which are bypassed with polypropylene capacitors on the mid-range and tweeter. It also uses air-core inductors, a tapped autotransformer for adjusting the mid-range output and laminated steel-core inductors. Metal-oxide resistors are paralleled where necessary to achieve high power rating and a custom heatsink is used to reduce the temperature.


    The high sensitivity mid-range is attenuated by a tapped auto transformer, which doubles as the high-pass crossover inductor. The tweeter network also has variable attenuation via metal-oxide resistors. The maximum sensitivity treble position by-passes all attenuation. Passive components are mounted on a high quality, glass fibre PCB, mechanically isolated from the cabinet.


    The crossover PCB's are designed to be completely, or partially, by-passed, to enable the user to configure the speaker in passive or active mode. Epos, will offer a custom DAC with programmable digital crossover to suit any make of amplification system. In short, it has unparalleled flexibility.


    The ongoing development for a future user upgrade to the Epos Encore 50 will represent yet another great leap forward in Epos speaker design and will have music lovers giving it a 'standing ovation' whilst applauding this exceptional speaker.


    Plinth

    A custom made MDF plinth helps to extend the footprint of the speaker and decouple mechanical vibrations from the cabinet. This makes the speaker more stable in a domestic environment and improves low frequency performance.


    It also allows access to the crossover adjustment patch-board. Adjustable metal feet allow the height and angle of the speaker to be adjusted. This enables a custom skateboard to fit underneath so the speaker can be transported on wheels to a different position and then carefully lowered into place. This is supplied with the speakers.

    The Garden Of Unearthly Delights

    Mighty Doom icons CATHEDRAL from Coventry, England for sure are one of the most unique and unpredictable acts around. These legendary merchants of slow-motion sound could care less about redundant genre restrictions and have so far incorporated everything from Doom, Psych, Folk up to Funk in their works. With their eighth album The Garden Of Unearthly Delights CATHEDRAL have achieved much more than simply living up to that reputation - the guys created timeless songs that couldn`t be farther away from standardisation, stagnation and convention.


    Produced by Warren Ryker (DOWN, CROWBAR), The Garden Of Unearthly Delights is probably the most varied effort of the band so far. While a song like 'North Berwick Witch Trials' will bring back memories of such immortal riffs`n`groove as in 'Hopkins' or 'Ride', 'Tree Of Life And Death' simply tears everything to pieces with its ultra-heavy guitar sound and fierce vocals courtesy of Lee Dorrian.


    The centerpiece of it all certainly is the 27-minute-long mammoth epos 'The Garden' that almost bursts with such a wealth of ideas and changes in atmosphere that other bands probably couldn`t come up with on a whole album. Using every stylistic device from female vocals up to violins and embedding it all in that typical CATHEDRAL brand of Doom, The Garden Of Unearthly Delights is a treat for every fan of the band, old and new alike.


    Starting with quite sinister and ultra-slow songs on the 1990 EP In Memorium and the full-length album Forest Of Equilibrium, CATHEDRAL quickly gained cult status. The 1992 follow-up EP Soul Sacrifice brought changes soundwise and saw the band mixing traditional Doom with 70s - Hardrock and showed a first glimpse of the trademarks CATHEDRAL still represent nowadays.


    After having previously toured with MORBID ANGEL and SAINT VITUS, the band embarked on the legendary Gods Of Grind - Tour with ENTOMBED, CARCASS and CONFESSOR. „The Ethereal Mirror" featured alltime faves like 'Ride' and 'Midnight Mountain' and suddenly gave CATHEDRAL the reputation as „the next big thing in Metal".


    Struggling with this label, the band started to experiment on the EP Statik Majik and probably tried out every single instrument they could lay their hands on to churn out a 20-minute-track like 'Voyage Of The Homeless Sapien'. After touring with BLACK SABBATH, the guys went on to record the landmark „The Carnival Bizarre" in 1996 that brought us immortal tunes such as 'Hopkins (The Witchfinder General)' and 'Utopian Blaster' - the latter featuring Tony Iommi on guitar. Supernatural Birth Machine was released in 1996 after touring in South America, Europe and Japan amongst others. The catchy songwriting on that album echoed on Caravan Beyond Redemption in 1998, but with a heavier twist to it. The next serious change in style occurred on the gloomy and sludgy Endtyme that went almost completely without sound experiments and concentrated on ultra-grim riffing. 2002`s The VIIth Coming combined catchiness with heaviness to form a well-balanced mixture between old and new CATHEDRAL.
