Supremely Sophisticated Aesthetics and Sound

Atop the outstanding new Elan series, the Epos Elan 35 is the largest and grandest of this new range. Its design holds true to the purist principles strictly followed by Epos. The two woofers work together at low frequencies to provide even higher sensitivity and dynamic response than the rest of the line in addition to delivering deeper and more powerful bass. The Elan 35 is also incredibly sensitive, suitable for use with a wide range of amplifiers, from as small as 10 Watts to as large as 200 watts into 4 Ohms. Tube fans rejoice!

Epos has developed a new soft-dome tweeter for the Elan 35. 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 1" 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.

A new long-throw eight-Ohm 7-1/3" bass/mid driver has been developed for the Elan 35. Built on to an open-frame cast-aluminum alloy chassis, with a generously ventilated spider and vented magnet pole, this driver minimizes colorations and distortions while allowing greater sound pressure levels than earlier Epos drivers.

The Elan 30's 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 (filtered) above 800Hz by the crossover, allowing the top mid-woofer to play bass and mid-range smoothly. The mid-woofer is rolled-off (filtered) at 3.6 kHz by the crossover to integrate properly with the tweeter. This is essentially a true 2.5-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.

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 minimize 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 can be fitted with the plinths supplied, together with the adjustable spiked feet, designed to decouple unwanted energy from the cabinet into the floor.

The 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.

In typical Epos fashion, the Elan 35's crossover is as simple as can be: both the woofer and tweeter networks are second-order filters at 800Hz and 3.6kHz. 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. 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, and the input terminals are bi-wirable, using a proprietary metal panel with solid metal binding posts equipped for 4mm plugs and large spade lugs.
