Big ass, tube friendly monitor for less
Wednesday, November 18, 2020

Eltax has decided that now is the moment to take a nostalgic look back at the imposing monitor speakers of the 70s, to create a new ‘vintage’ design loudspeaker, the Vintage PWR 1959. A 3-way bass reflex, twin 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. Available in the UK from early December, they’ll boast an SRP of £899 per pair.
