French audio brand Elipson has announced that it is celebrating its 80th anniversary by launching special editions of some of its best-selling audio products.
Elipson first manufactured spherical speakers from a French workshop in Vitry in central France back in 1938. Over the years Elipson speakers have been installed in some of the most beautiful venues from the Chateau de Chambord, the 1968 Winter Olympics stadiums, French radio and TV stations to the more recent prestigious Hotel de Crillon and New Morning, Temple of jazz and soul in Paris, the company says.
To mark its 80th birthday occasion, the brand has selected three of its best-selling products to rerelease in limited edition finishes. The spherical shaped Planet L and more traditional Prestige Facet 8B speakers feature enhanced crossovers using the highest grade quality components available, in addition to a satin black finish with gold trim. The Alpha 100 RIAA BT turntable also enjoys the same black and gold treatment, with an enhanced integral phono stage.
