Pioneer Elite SP-EBS73-LR
Dolby Atmos enabled Elite Concentric Bookshelf Speakers designed by Andrew Jones
The Elite Bookshelf Speakers are suitable for use as main or front-channel speakers and rear-channel speakers in the most sophisticated surround-sound or music systems.
While most bookshelf speakers compromise performance with a two-way design that requires the bass driver to reproduce a range of frequencies beyond its capabilities, Andrew Jones has designed the Elite Bookshelf Speakers to be a true, three-way design, so each major frequency band is represented with a separate high-, midrange and low-frequency driver.
A Once-in-a-Decade Breakthrough.
A Pioneer product has to be special to carry the Elite name, and the latest Elite Home Theater Speakers are just that. From the brilliant mind of Andrew Jones—Pioneer's and TAD's Chief Speaker Engineer—these are the first speakers from the Elite brand in more than a decade. They are designed to take advantage of advancements in engineering, transducer technology and of course, groundbreaking Dolby Atmos sound.
Value Exceeded Only by Performance.
Delivering a sound experience far exceeding their price, the Elite Home Theater Speakers have been designed as a complete Dolby Atmos-enabled system comprised of four models. Together, they offer an unbeatable value-to-performance ratio for putting together a high-performance 5.1.4-channel surround sound system.
Attention to Details Makes the Difference.
The Elite Home Theater Speakers include such details as Gold-plated connectors and multi-element, complex crossovers. Cabinets of floorstanding, bookshelf and center-channel speakers are designed with gently curved sides to eliminate standing waves encountered in typical square-box designs. CST driver is mounted in its own individual enclosure, isolating it from the pressure waves in the main enclosure. The black-finished cabinet integrates perfectly with contemporary and traditional interiors, while a small footprint allows flexible placement in the room.
Special Drivers for Dolby Atmos.
Of course, even the best speakers can’t create the startling realism and holographic sense of height and air of a Dolby Atmos recording or soundtrack, unless they’re engineered specifically for the task. That’s why both floorstanding and bookshelf Elite Home Theater Speakers are equipped with a vertically-firing Dolby Atmos-enabled driver. To maximize the performance capabilities of Dolby Atmos, the Elite Home Theater Speakers utilize Pioneer’s high-performance two-way CST to achieve the highest performance for the most accurate, uniform sound.
Its Concentric Driver Hits the Spot.
At the heart of the Elite Home Theater Speaker System is the CST (Coherent Source Transducer), a revelation in accurate sound. This driver dramatically reduces interference between the midrange and tweeter, precisely controlling sound directivity at all frequencies and ensuring that direct and reflected sound arrive at the listening position with identical timing and timbre. It does this with a 1-inch tweeter positioned centrally at the apex of the 4-inch midrange drive unit. Unlike a coaxial driver, which positions its high-frequency driver further forward of a larger cone, the CST concentric design eliminates audible time domain errors which cannot be avoided when drivers are not aligned on the same axial or vertical plane. Such distortion is readily apparent but is virtually eliminated in the sophisticated, proprietary CST used in the Elite Home Theater Speaker range.
Bass That's Fast, Tight, Dynamic and Low.
Critical to the realism and authority of the Elite Home Theater Speakers is bass response that delivers all the power and impact of the most challenging music and film. Developing a driver that seamlessly integrates with mid- and high frequencies is a particular challenge: large drivers can be too slow and smaller ones may fail to convey weight and substance. The 5-1/4-inch aluminum cone and dust cap of these woofers ensures true pistonic action, eliminating break-up modes within their operating range. A large diameter vented pole piece allows unrestricted airflow under the dust cap, reducing unwanted noise caused by turbulent air. An oversized magnet ensures greater bass control, while a 1-1/2-inch long throw voice coil improves power handling for full, dynamic bass.
