Beautiful special edition Emerald Physics EP 2.3 speakers in custom rosewood finish (a $2,000 upgrade). Emerald Physics is becoming a legendary design in the world of High End Audio. Numerous ‘best in show’ awards over the past 10 years and I would concur. I attended several Rocky Mountain Audio Fests and felt the Emerald Physics designs stole the show and embarrassed many $50k and up speakers. What’s not to like? They are extremely efficient and easy to drive and sound incredible. They were a 2016 and 2017 Absolute Sound Editor’s Choice award winner Best of Show Axpona 2015 As an Absolute Sound reviewer wrote: “The CS2.3 II offered simply the most precise imaging and best soundstaging I have ever heard anywhere; for once and without exaggeration I could use the word holographic. Read the whole review here: http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/emerald-physics-cs23-mk-ii-loudspeaker/ With all new drivers, passive outboard crossovers, Emerald DSP, upgraded baffles and cosmetics, the EP2.3 is a true 3-way, 4 driver bi-amplified, full range dipole speaker design. Cutting edge sonic performance establishes a new level of realism and dimensionality at anywhere near its cost, or as our customers can attest to even double or triple their cost. The EP2.3 uses the new Emerald Physics designed custom designed Point Source 12" midrange and compression tweeter along with two Emerald Physics custom designed 15" woofers. These woofers move 80% more air than the woofers used in the original CS2.3, while the midrange and tweeter are far more linear. Our unique Aperture Bass Propagation technology, as introduced in the original CS2.3, is continued in the EP2.3. This proprietary system is used for both 15" dipole woofers, improving low frequency power and linearity, while retaining all the speed and articulation of the original CS2 & 2.3. DSP equalization and active crossover functions are provided by the included new Emerald Physics DSP2.4 Digital crossover/EQ processor. 3-Way, 4 driver, Active Dynamic Loudspeaker Dipole below 900Hz, Monopole above 900Hz Controlled directivity design, DSP controlled Emerald Physics Concentric midrange/tweeter drivers Impedance 4 Ohms Treble Driver One 1 inch (25mm) exit custom Emerald Physics compression driver Midrange Driver One 12 inch (300mm) custom Emerald Physics 12.1 driver Bass Drivers Two 15 inch (380mm) custom Emerald Physics woofers - pulp fiber cones Sensitivity 97 dB 2.83V @1M @ 1kHz Mid/Treble 1000Hz Butterworth 3rd Order - Internal Passive network Bass/Mid 200Hz Linkwitz-Riley 8th Order - DSP based active network Amp Configuration Can be single amped, Bi-amplified or Tri-amplified (amplifiers not included) Signal Processing Included outboard 4 channel Emerald Physics DSP2.4 (DSP processor) unit Emerald Physics proprietary software pre-loaded Frequency Response
I bought these new and have the original boxes and DSP unit. Prefer local pickup in the San Antonio, TX area but willing to ship via FEDEX at buyer’s expense. Serious Inquiries only please.
