Jullien aka Violet from Passion Elipson has just shared these photos with me. They have been taken during the installation of the Elipson Expo, where Jullien has loaned a number of his collector's items. I will let you enjoy them without further comment...
This 12th edition of "Salon du Vintage" in Paris will have a section dedicated to Vinyl and an exhibition of the famous Elipson vintage speakers - with tons of speakers - literally - on loan from Jullien of Passion Elipson's fame
I am sure the new/old BS50 will be on display. So for your dose of nostalgia, rush to the "Enceintes en Blanc" event in Le Marais this week-end. Check their website for details: http://salonduvintage.com
Just a quick detour from Las Vegas and back in Paris, actually in "Cote Paris".
I just got the latest copy of "Cote Paris" - the January issue - obviously, we are on the other side of the Planet (lol...) and to my utter surprise, there is a full page on Elipson, their new Planets ( no, not the ones from Holst..., but certainly of Helmholtz fame!).
And these little beauties have been designed by our good friend Jullien Thaler who just posted a photo on his Facebook page of the very rare "Religieuses" used by the French Radio (ORTF) as monitors for a long time.
And in another twist of fate, I had a long conversation with my ex-HP colleague, Marc Fontaine, who bought Mulidine back in 2005 - more on these speakers in a later post - and happens to be a neighbour and friend of Jullien: The World is Flat (a must-read book by Thomas L. Friedman)
In October last year, after the Paris HiFi Show in Paris, I had a chance to go and listen to the Elipson 4260 and 4050 at the house of Violet of Passion-Elipson.
We had a ball (so to speak...) and you can read all about our adventures on my "Interviews & Reviews" page.
