“AS A GREAT ENGINEER ONCE SAID, “TAKE THE BEST THAT EXISTS AND MAKE IT BETTER”. THAT ENGINEER WAS SIR HENRY ROYCE AND IT IS HIS UNCEASING PUSH FOR PERFECTION THAT HAS INSPIRED OUR NEW HIGH-PERFORMANCE SPEAKER, ESTELON EXTREME LEGACY EDITION.“
Founder and Chief Designer, Estelon
The pursuit of excellence is a goal shared by many but achieved by only a select few – a fact that inspired Estelon’s Founder and Chief Designer, Alfred Vassilkov, to undertake his own personal voyage of discovery. It was one that led him to Paulerspury in Northamptonshire; a leafy, unassuming village that also happens to be home to the world’s foremost collection of all things Rolls-Royce.
There, in the archives of the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club, Alfred drew inspiration from the marque’s rich heritage of exceptional engineering and iconic design to create the pinnacle of audio experiences – the Estelon Extreme Legacy Edition.
While firmly fixed on writing a new chapter in audio technology, the Estelon Extreme Legacy Edition is finely attuned to the heritage of luxury that precedes it.
Cabinets are molded from marble-based composite material and have no parallel walls thus eliminating all the resonances and reflections. Each speaker weights 285kg ensuring the absolute stability.
The system’s cabinet is finished in light Tudor grey metallic paint – a colour more associated with classic Rolls-Royce motor cars than high- end audio equipment.
Each speaker hand-finished with 14 layers of paint and lacquer as part of its meticulous 2,300 man-hour production process.
Diamond’s stiffness to weight ratio is unsurpassed, thus making it the best material for speaker membranes in the high frequency range. Diamond tweeters are being built into the most respected reference loudspeakers of today’s high-end world.
The chrome rims that encircle each of the Legacy Edition’s drivers are hand-polished to perfection, as is the elegant, Estelon logo-ed front “grille”, which is subtly back-lit when the system is in use.
On the speaker’s reverse is a small, smart nameplate, signed by Estelon Founder and Chief Designer Alfred Vassilkov and featuring its own unique serial number.
Every element of the Estelon Extreme Legacy Edition is conceived and handcrafted to deliver the ultimate listener experience, producing live-performance- quality acoustics in a home environment. To achieve this, the Legacy Edition offers a pioneering combination of self-sustainable technology and innovative design.
The Legacy Edition’s modular brain, which features cutting-edge Estelon Intelligent Audio (EIA) technology, ensures that the whole system is entirely futureproof. Redefining the possibilities of audio technology, EIA allows for the speaker’s hardware, as well as its software components, to be updated with ease, as and when required.
