Premium loudspeaker brand Estelon debuts Extreme MKII flagship and it’s jaw-dropping

Luxury loudspeaker brand Estelon has unveiled a spectacular update to its flagship floorstanding loudspeaker. The new Extreme Mk II incorporates a significant number of sonic advancements for greater clarity, but retains the original’s head-turning form factor.

Designed by Estelon co-founder Alfred Vassilkov, the unique two-module design stands over 2 meters tall and allows the user to adjust the height of the upper part of the speaker, as well as the depth of the tweeter, in order to achieve superior levels of Hi-Fi performance in any given listening room. The two-part design also helps save the upper drivers from vibration created by the woofers.

Priced at 198,000€ ($256,000), the Estelon Extreme Mk II is being offered in stunning two-tone, ultra-premium high-gloss finishes: Midnight Opera, Bronze Royale, Lunar Eclipse, and Nordic Emerald. 

The cabinet and proprietary marble-based composite material not only elevate overall aesthetics, they prevent unwanted resonances.  We’re told the movement systems of this new Mk II have been designed and built from scratch out of precision-milled and 3D printed components, allowing wireless control of adjustments to exceptional precision.

Formed in 2010 and based out of Estonia, Estelon is a two times ‘Innovation Award’ winner at CES and holds a Red Dot Design Award. Its mission statement is ‘to derive aesthetic and acoustic excellence through the merger of ingenious creativity and cutting-edge science.’

Technical innovations are many. The Extreme Mk II sports a new 168mm ceramic membrane midrange driver with CELL technology from Accuton. It’s described as super-fast and accurate, able to portray everything from vocals to piano, strings, horns, and cymbals with enhanced realism.

The speaker sports a new 25mm diamond membrane Accuton tweeter, said to be capable of reaching 60 kHz without distortion, along with an upgraded crossover network that integrates improved inductors, capacitors, and resistors.  High-end Kubala-Sosna pure copper cabling is used for all internal wiring.

The manufacturer also states that all unnecessary metal-to-metal transitions have been eliminated, in a further refinement of performance. Estelon’s proprietary connectors accept banana, spade, or bare wire termination.

The end result, says the brand, are airy, articulated micro-dynamics from bass to highs: ‘The sound of the Extreme Mk II is an event on its own where the speaker itself completely disappears as a sound source, replacing its presence with the venue in which the recording was made.’
