SVS sealed subwoofers were chosen for their musicality, quickness, style, and value befitting the Model 1200 and 1600 Electrostatic Speakers and will now be available via the Essence website and through dealers worldwide.
Girard, OH – July 29, 2014 –SVS, a worldwide leader in high performance home audio products, was chosen to be the exclusive subwoofer brand recommended and sold by Essence Electrostatic Speaker Systems. The SVS Gloss White SB-1000, SB-1000 in Black Ash, and the SB13-Ultra Gloss Black sealed subwoofers were chosen for having qualities that complement the unique sound profile of the Essence 1200 and 1600 electrostatic speakers and will be available from the Essence website and its audio/video dealers worldwide.
“After conducting exhaustive research on every subwoofer brand we could think of, it became clear that SVS sealed subs were more articulate, musical and transparent than any others we tested,” said Bob Rapoport, vice president sales and marketing for Essence Electrostatic. “We call the Essence Electrostatic speakers the “ultimate listening experience” because they are capable of producing a palpably realistic stereo image, something that’s easy to hear and gives you the goosies. SVS sealed subwoofers will only enhance this experience.”
Unlike traditional speakers with magnets and woofers, electrostatic speakers use an ultra low-mass thin-film Mylar diaphragm suspended in an electrostatic field between two perforated acrylic panels called “stators” to propagate sound out the front and back of the panel. Electrostats are known for rendering astonishing clarity, resolution, transient response, and image specificity in the mid to high frequency ranges. As a result of this design, electrostatic speakers don’t generally move enough air to fill a listening room with visceral bass output. Knowing its strength is in electrostatic speakers, Essence chose SVS to fill in the low frequencies, the bottom two octaves of bass.
SVS sealed subwoofers feature sophisticated Class D amplifiers with custom DSP (digital signal processing) for effortless performance and refinement at all volume levels. Sealed subwoofers are known for providing cleaner, tighter bass than ported models with heightened musicality, articulation and transient response. SVS sealed subwoofers integrate with both electrostatic and traditional speakers.
“Essence Electrostatic speakers provide a sense of realism and transparency that is unique in the world of audio and there’s no doubt the new models are an impressive achievement,” said Gary Yacoubian, president and CEO of SVS. “Most subwoofers would muddy the experience of listening to electrostatic speakers, so we’re flattered to be chosen and consider it a real validation of the engineering we put into our sealed subwoofer designs.”
Essence loudspeakers and SVS sealed subwoofers are available now from www.Essenceelectrostatic.com and from select specialty AV retailers.
