ELYSIAN Centre brings a new dimension to the ELYSIAN series performance, tuning the application for mind-blowing home theatre settings.

A proven concept in the form of the award-winning ELYSIAN 4 and ELYSIAN 2 models, the ELYSIAN Centre continues with the specially engineered AMT HF driver; a radically different way of moving air, using a large, pleated, lightweight diaphragm driven across its surface by rows of strategically placed metallic strips immersed in a strong magnetic field. The pleats in the diaphragm contract and expand under the influence of the musical drive, squeezing the air between them to form the desired waveform. Featuring an ultra-lightweight diaphragm material called ‘PET‘ and an acoustically damped rear chamber, the ELYSIAN AMT stands out against comparable high-frequency units by delivering even more spellbindingly clear and sweetly extended high frequencies.

Operating in a three-way configuration, ELYSIAN Centre is also fitted with a custom, glass fibre matrix cone bass units. Terminated with a highly flexible rubber surround and driven by a specially developed low-distortion motor system, the 220mm (8.5”) bass units are capable of reaching down below 27Hz. The result is impact and bass excitement that offer a totally immersive theatre experience.

As found in the ELYSIAN 2 and 4 models, the ELYSIAN Centre utilises a proprietary woven glass fibre matrix mid-range. This structure provides a superb combination of low mass and high strength, with the addition of a high-plasticity coating to control its acoustic behaviour. With such a low-mass cone, only a low-damping, foamed, rubber-like material would match for the surround – again, coated for durability. A linearised output across a wide bandwidth, even off-axis, enhances a natural response to the music that can be heard anywhere the listener wishes to sit..

Further tuned for purpose, this combination of drivers brings a new level of vocal tangibility and soundstage presentation. The musical timing, spacious presentation and precision in delivery, means that ELYSIAN Centre is nothing short of jaw-dropping in terms of realism in audio / visual applications. Soundtracks come to life and cinematic scenes explode with energy!

Beautifully finished, the ELYSIAN speaker cabinets are designed to enhance the acoustic output of the drivers and provide a piece of furniture of which the owner can be justly proud. Handcrafted veneers are enhanced by true piano finish lacquers, hand-polished to six levels of depth. This exquisite touch offers a truly standout aesthetic, unmatched at this price-point.
