The distinctive style of YB Mk II may be a masterpiece of sleek design, as with all the Estelon products, but it is also a triumph of “form follows function”. With an emphasis on lines and surfaces, as opposed to the X-Series’ organic curves, the resulting Y shape, from which the YB name derives, is obtained by the system’s asymmetric driver positioning.
The newly upgraded YB Mk II contains new crossover and cabling and it's now coming in the same marble based composite cabinet for a quality of sound that immerses the listener in both the technical brilliance and the emotional ebb and flow of the audio experience.
With their asymmetrical design, the Estelon Model YB speakers are a prime example of a functional design approach. The cabinets are molded from a marble based composite material and shaped to optimize sound quality. The placement of the drivers in the cabinet is also well thought out: the mid-woofer is positioned above the beryllium driver to minimize sonic reflections from the floor. The wider speaker base accommodates the bass driver with aluminum diaphragm. Since the woofers are angled towards each other, they can be placed close to a wall even in smaller rooms without having to cope with overlapping sound.
The Estelon Forza, which personifies technologies trickled-down from the Extreme (Estelon’s ultimate flagship model), was introduced in 2019 and has already received much worldwide recognition and numerous awards. Estelon is now releasing a special Anniversary Edition that is limited in production to a total of 10 pairs. It features a combination of Black Pearl Gloss and Gold accents highlighting its elegant curves, presenting a truly luxurious finish.
Estelon Forza’s unique shape and soft curves of the cabinet eliminate the effects of reflective diffraction, while the frequency characteristics of the dispersion remain straight and linear not only in front of the loudspeaker but also at various angles. This widens the ideal listening position. The combination of the curved cabinet walls and specific interior chambers eliminate cabinet vibrations so the audio signal remains pure and will only come from the driver elements. Every nuance dances through the air, creating a realistic soundstage and filling the listener with rich emotions. You can just close your eyes and enjoy the best that music can offer.
