ELAC 330 CE: Sunet si design in sinteza perfecta

"CE" provine de la "Crystal Edition", noua tehnologie Crystal pentru membrane, ce a facut senzatie in intreaga lume. De aceea am decis se echipam si "ELAC 330" cu aceasta apreciata tehnologie, pe langa tweeterul JET si alte caracteristici de inalta tehnologie.

Caracteristica extraordinara este cabinetul din aluminiu. Acesta consista din aluminiu extrudat de 7,5 mm, intarit in interior cu o ranforsare transversala. Astfel rigiditatea inalta a materialului permite cabinetelor sa atinga un caracter lipsit aproape 100% de rezonante.

In plus acest tip de cabinete ofera posibilitatea atingerii celor mai compacte constructii. Modelul are panoul frontal redus la minim, ajungand astfel foarte aproape de sursa de sunet punctiforma ideala. Imaginea sonora tridimensionala si aerisita rezultata se desfasoara deosebit de bine, mai ales pe standuri.

Acest model clasic este un exemplu de sinteza perfecta a tehnologiei si designului, si se distinge prin estetica uimitoare si functii tehnologice avansate.
ELAC LS 65 speaker stand Disponibil ca accesoriu: standul LS 65 este perfect adaptat pentru aceasta incinta acustica. Protectiile metalice inserate in baza incintei se potrivesc exact pe cele trei spike-uri ale placii superioare. In plus exista posibilitatea fixarii cu suruburi pentru stabilitate si siguranta sporita.

Treble Unit

ELAC JET III tweeter used in all 180 Series range

The ELAC JET tweeter is one of the most legendary tweeters in the hi-fi trade and has won international renown with its unusual transparent and effortless sound image.

The JET tweeter was delveloped to perfection on the basis of the famous 'Air Motion Transformer' by loudpseaker pioneer Dr Oskar Heil. Its principle: a concertinaed foil membrane is driven by a strong magnet system of neodymium rods.

This 'motor' drives the air considerably faster than the conventional pistonic technique. High sensitivity and extraordiary dynamics are the result. Due to continuous improvement, the JET III tweeter creates an effortless and airy resonance-free image up to 50,000 Hz, and with its linear frequency response is ideally suited for the reproduction of Hi-Res Audio music.

ELAC JET DC (Dispersion Control) ring
ELAC JET DC (Dispersion Control) ring
The ELAC "JET Dispersion Control DC" is a flat ring made of open-cell rubber foam which is mounted around the JET orifice with four clasps (or with adhesive tape).

The JET DC results in a broadband reduction of about 0.5 dB of the radiated sound level nearly independent of frequency. The JET DC is best suited for rooms with little sound absorption at high frequencies, especially for rooms with large windows without curtains or with a smooth floor without a carpet.

All loudspeakers of the 300 series are supplied with the JET Dispersion Control as an accessory.

LLD (Long Linear Drive) Midbass Unit

ELAC LLD (Long Linear Drive Technology) - ELAC 330 CE

The LLD driver technology (Long Linear Drive) is based on the movement of a short-wound coil (winding height: 6.5 mm) in a long air gap (height: 16 mm) with a homogeneous magnetic field. This design results in extremely linear (without distortions) movement within an amplitude of ±8 mm. The voice coil exactly mirrors the applied audio signal. The maximum displacement is an impressive ±16 mm.

ELAC's LLD woofers use high-quality titanium bobbins for greater mechanical stability. This also reduces eddy-current losses and helps achieve deeper and more precise bass reproduction.

Neodymium magnets are used to increase magnetic flux density and to save space, providing optimum magnetic field geometry and greater efficiency. Using several small magnetic plates reduces air noise and helps to keep the temperature low even under high load.
