Eltax goes retro with the launch of their Vintage PWR 1959 monitor speaker
AV Industry, Paris, France, 18th November 2020. Renowned Danish audio brand Eltax takes a nostalgic look back at the imposing monitor speakers of the 70s, to create their new ‘vintage’ design loudspeaker.
A 3-way bass reflex, twin front ported loudspeaker, the new Vintage PWR 1959 is equipped with a newly designed 38cm diameter cellulose bass driver, a 16cm diameter cellulose midrange and two horn tweeters with 25mm diameter domes. The floor-standing walnut veneer cabinet benefits from multiple reinforced braces including a separate enclosure for the midrange drive unit. With high sensitivity and very large power handling, this new Eltax loudspeaker explores the lower
frequencies with impact down to the lowest bass notes, supported by the accuracy of the midrange and effortless clarity of its treble, allowing the listener to experience the music with live concert-like audio reproduction… expected of a large, true monitor speaker.
Eltax is reputed for producing high-quality loudspeakers at value for money prices and these new PWR 1959 monitor loudspeakers are no exception. Available in the UK from early December, they’ll boast an SRP of £899 per pair.
