Emerald Physics EP2.3 OB spkrs-GREAT Jan.2015 TAS review
The EP2.3 was formerly called the CS2.3 MK2. See the Jan 5, 2015 The Absolute Sound review at:http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/emerald-physics-cs23-mk-ii-loudspeaker/Paul Seydor sums with:"This speaker excels in so many areas, including those that are central for the truthful reproduction of music in the home, that they warrant the highest recommendation. When you factor in their price—$4800 a pair in the current configuration then their value is quite off the charts."See our new video tour at: http://www.avshowrooms.com/Emerald_Physics_Tour.htmlOur new Show place in Broomfield, Colorado is now available for auditions. Seven Emerald Physics systems are set up. Call for an appointment. Virtually every customer who hears them there buys a pair. Emerald continues to get Best Affordable Sound at the Shows. We have received it for the Newport, Axpona and now RMAF from both Stereophile and The Absolute Sound. We must be doing something right. And yes we are, by offering tremendous sound at very low prices with no dealer profits. And built in the USA. Save $1150.00 on a new pair of EP2.3’s. Plus you can buy any of our 3 amps if you need a second amp to biamp for 50% off. Our $1000.00 EP-60.2 is only $500.00. The $1600.00 EP100.2 is $800.00 while the $2200.00 EP100.2SE is only $1100.00. Plus we can now offer these speakers with a full range crossover so you do not need to biamp them. In the October 2013 Newport Beach show report Paul Seydor says: “The CS2.3 mk2 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. Dynamic range is extremely wide, bass response subterranean, midrange rich and open. Orchestral music is spectacular while Sinatra on “Angel eyes” is palpably present, three dimensional and spookily real- also rare at this show a true baritone (it took all of maybe 20 seconds before a smile appeared on my wife’s face). Biamping is required but the crossover is supplied. If this thing performs in most rooms the way it did here it may be just about the best performance per dollar I know in high end loudspeakers.” We are now shipping our new EP2.3 (formerly called CS2.3 MK2). This speaker was the hit of the Newport Beach show (see above reviewer comment) with many listeners commenting that we outperformed systems selling for 5-10 times our price. We have an intro deal this month at $1150.00 off, just $4800.00 for a $5950.00 set. Plus you can buy any of our amps for 50% off to run the midrange/tweeters in a biamped system if you need a second amp. Use your amp for the bass and ours for the midrange and highs. We also have the beautiful $1200.00 Tri-coat finish option available for 50% off at only $600.00. The new Emerald Physics EP2.3 is an upgrade to the CS2.3 that garnered great raves. The CS2.3 was a radical step forward and a worthy successor to the legendary CS2. This new EP2.3 version does not use a single part from the original CS2.3 and offers a major step forward in sonics. Emerald speakers are unique in the following ways: 1) Our controlled dispersion design eliminates the room over 300Hz 2) Our open baffle design eliminates box cost as well as all box coloration’s 3) Our DSP speaker control eliminates frequency aberrations for amazingly flat response 4) Our design allows very good performance with inexpensive electronics although better electronics will make the speakers sound better. 5) Our equalized pro drivers are extremely low distortion and play very loud with virtually no listener fatigue 6) Our point source midrange offers exceptional imaging combined with the huge soundstage of planar designs. 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 (or Triamplified or single amped now), full range dipole speaker design. It can also be run now with a single full range amplifier. 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 long throw 15" woofers. These woofers move 80% more air than the woofers used in the original CS2.3, while the midrange moves twice as much and the tweeter is 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 2.3. DSP equalization and active crossover functions are provided by the included new Emerald Physics DSP2.4 Digital crossover/EQ processor. There is also an optional upgradable outboard passive midrange/tweeter crossover and our beautiful new cosmetics. We now also offer the speaker in a full range single amp version. The EP2.3 was redesigned from the ground up using the original Emerald Physics design concepts with all new parts. There are no parts from the original CS2.3 used in this new version. EP2.3 Pricing: Standard Satin black semi gloss finish with DSP Processor ..... $5999/prIntro sale this month for $4,800.00 a pair. SAVE $1199.00 A Special Edition passive crossover is also available as a $600.00 a pair option. On sale this month for $300.00 Shown in black Tri-coat. Standard finish on sale at $4800.00 is black satin. We have the $1200.00 beautiful Black, Anthracite, Blue, white or red automotive Tri-coat on sale for $600.00.

King Sound King III Full Range Electrostatic
These Stats do bass better than non planar speakers. By better I mean there is much more articulation in the bass that you won't/can't get from cone speakers. The King III excel at Rock N Roll as well as Classical plus Vocals are totally Real on these speakers. Want to have your socks knocked off let me play some Tommy Bolin on these for you. These speakers have all the air around instruments you could ask for and bass slam. The King III Full Range Electrostatic Speaker on Display in Castle Rock Co. Stop in for a listen. I had my demos on display at RMAF and they were a big hit with everyone. Here are some links to see what the reviewers thought of my room and the sound. http://www.stereophile.com/content/kingsound-shaker-logic-audio http://parttimeaudiophile.com/2013/10/17/rmaf-2013-sound-science/ http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=120504.msg1267168#msg1267168 http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php? Harbeths are famous for their midrange but these are better, Those other planars, you know the ones, they sound dark and veiled next to these and these have better bass. I know I can say antyhing here but what I am saying is true, these smoke the competition at this price and well beyond. topic=120535.msg1267553#msg1267553 I sell Harbeth, King, Marten, Polk and Usher speakers, come and listen to the King III and hear why I chose the King III as my main speakers. These are high altitude Electrostats good to elevations up to and including 10,000 feet. Hear why Kevin Hayes of VAC uses King Speakers to voice his amplifiers. When you want your speakers to play what is on the source without applying its own signature to the sound the King III may be your best choice and for the Money i.e. $14995 they clearly are the best value. The King III are the most wonderful sounding speakers I have heard in my system ever. If you are used to point source emulating speakers i.e. a normal 2 or 3 way speaker or even a one way speaker floor standing or book shelf type you just can't imagine what the difference is from a line source dipole like the King III. Certainly they aren't for everyone, they are very tall at 5'10" tall and like to come out into the room some for the best sound and they image better without their grills on. If you are a slave to your Interior designer you may not be a candidate for a pair of King III. If on the other hand you are a person in pursuit of the most realistic sound you can imagine I encourage you to stop by for a listen. The bass from these is nothing short of astonishing as is the whole audio spectrum. $14,995 isn't peanuts but after you hear the King III set up properly you will never long for another pair of speakers as they do everything just right. For Smaller Rooms the Prince III is the best choice. If you set out to design the worlds best sounding speaker you might list the problems one has to solve so you would know what to do. The first problem is the listening room and wow what a doozy the room is. You have problems with reflections, absorption and room resonances to name the big basic problems. In a conventional box speaker you have box resonances and if the woofer is not right at floor level you get floor bounce which tends to cancel certain mid bass frequencies. If you put the drivers in a box then the box vibrates and contributes negatively to the sound. Well you get the idea and have probably heard this all before. The King III solves all of these problems even the room problems. First the King III is a dipole panel speaker and while you may be thinking panel speakers have their problems too the King III has cleverly done away with those problems too. The King III is a 2 way line source speaker. It has separate electrostatic modules for the highs and separate panels for the mids and lows. The high frequency panels are lined up on the inside edge of both speakers as they are a mirror imaged pair. Large panel electrostatic speakers are known to beam the high frequencies like lasers but by building the high frequency panels the right size the beaming is eliminated. By placing the the Electrostatic tweeters on the inside edge of the speakers you minimize or eliminate side wall reflections of the high frequencies. The King 3 has Mid/bass frequency panels that occupy the rest of the 68" tall by 26" wide speaker. Having line arrays eliminates the floor bounce. Eliminating the cabinet i.e. a planar speaker gets rid of cabinet resonances and because it is an open panel dipole speaker you get a figure 8 radiation pattern of all the frequencies which allows you to steer the sound including the bass frequencies towards you the listener rather than pressurizing the whole room with bass. The figure 8 radiation also minimizes room reflection problems. The King has other wonderful qualities, it uses relatively small electrostatic sections that can easily be replaced should one become damaged. The King now has a separate outboard crossover network. If you came by our room at this past RMAF you know what I am talking about. These speakers have a phenomenal pure full range sound including lots of bass. We often don't think of a panel speaker as a good choice for rock and roll but the King III plays all kinds of music superbly with room filling bass. So what is the down side a speaker that does all these things the King III must have some weakness? They will not work with a flea power single ended triodes, minimum amplifier power is 100 watts. Since they are a line array instead of a point source the sound only drops off by 3 db as you double your distance from them rather than the 6 db of a point source loud speaker. This means the volume in your room is much more consistent than with a point source loud speaker. The King III have all the air one associates with Electrostatic speakers and all the bass one associates with a cone woofer with none of the trade offs of either. You would expect the price of these to be over the top but this world class speaker with few peers if any is only $15,000 This is a Review of the King III by Doug Schroeder I am going to tell you why the Kingsound King III is inherently superior sonically to three popular Panel speaker brands with models under $20,000. I am also going to tell you why it is amazing to me that it is. If ever there was a paradoxical speaker company, it is King’s Audio. Its products present a conundrum; they are seemingly quick and dirty designs, but they sound superior to very serious, very high dollar competitors. The King III follows on the heels of the impressive King ESL, which took me about ten minutes to determine would be my reference Panel speaker. If you want the background to the article and conclusions, read that review. In short, I concluded that the King was the panel speaker to beat in the under $20K class. I’ll go further in this article, declaring the King III has no serious competition in the under $20K class. I have heard the popular panels by Quad, MartinLogan and Magnepan, and I wouldn’t trade the King III for any of them, regardless of model. How’s that for being blunt? It would be a real pisser if the King III failed me a year after this is published, but I doubt it. The King has been flawless in terms of reliability over the past three years, and given that track record, I expect similar from the King III. I am extremely familiar with the King, so it only took about five minutes to conclude the King III is holistically superior, and not by a small margin! My first glance at it was when I went to CES and T.H.E. show in 2011 and discovered that Kings Audio, based in Hong Kong, was releasing two new versions simultaneously, one of which was more similar to the King and the other like a giant Quad 2905 – the short-lived King II. The lovely King Tower omnidirectional was shown in an unimpressive display two years, then discontinued. I am grateful to Roger that I obtained what seems to be the only pair of the King Tower in North America. King’s Audio moth balled what I consider to be one of the greatest speakers I have ever encountered under $5K. Consider, an omnidirectional speaker with detail and vast soundstage to make a Panel speaker jealous for about $5K. If people had heard what the King Tower could do I believe the speakers would have sold like hotcakes. Consider, for a fairly reasonable sum the ardent audiophile could have had a pretty doggone good true omnidirectional at a price which would have been very attractive. At the recent 2013 CES I picked up another Kings Audio oddity, a pair of a Kingsound “Guitar Speakers.” These are not in contention for any awards based solely on sound, but I have seen precious few lifestyle speakers with anywhere near the cool factor and décor-friendly appearance. The Guitar speaker incorporates what appears to be a 5” dynamic driver in the space which is normally the guitar’s (this is a replica of a guitar) sounding hole, and an electrostatic element running the length of the guitar’s neck. The ESL driver rests between the two outer limbs of the neck, which act like posts holding the driver between so that it can radiate backwards as well. On the backside is a plate amplifier which powers the ESL element and incorporates a sturdy brace to incorporate the replica tri-leg speaker stands. It is a truly splendid art piece with sound, most recommendable to those who consider aesthetics of the highest priority. The King ESL took a back seat to no peers, but the King III has no peers. It quite simply is superior to any panel you care to name for $20K and under, and more than a few well above that price point. How do I know? I have heard almost all of them – Analysis, Magnepan, Quad and MartinLogan among them. Did I hear them in my room? No, I heard them at shows; if you want to dismiss my conclusion due to that fact, go right ahead. But before you do, I’ll share some uncomfortable truths about some of these other technologies and why I believe the King III is inherently superior. My complaints about these other speakers are not subjective quibbles, but technological trouble spots which the King III does not share. In what follows, readers inclined to rage against me for taking their favorite speaker company to task need to calm themselves and look at the hard facts before sending me hate mail. What follows may generate some strong responses, but I do not plan on defending my perspective to readers’ comments. Other panels I will start with the Quad 2805 and 2905, both of which are the most coherent sounding contenders to the King III. The Quads were obviously more coherent than the original King. The King was as nuanced and as tonally accurate, but superior in terms of scale, macrodynamics and bass extension. Quad has ridden on its reputation for a long time, and I believe these two models have been eclipsed by the King III. I understand Quad is coming out with a reiteration of its current design with the uninspiring names 2912 and 2812. The 2912 seems to be nearly five feet tall, which would address the problem of them being historically, woefully short. However, I suspect questions regarding these models’ reliability need to settle. I had noticed a year or two ago things got really quiet in the audio community about newer Quads; they may as well have disappeared. Magneplanar and Quads both have shall we say “build longevity,” issues historically. Magneplanar addressed lingering issues of delamination by moving to an all Quasi-ribbon design in its lower and middle models. This was hardly innovative, as I have in my office a dual magnet array, foil ribbon driver Eminent Technology LFT-VI which is about 20 years old. There have been whisperings about Quad speakers arcing and keeping ESL repairers happy. We’ll see if anything changes on that front with the anticipated 2912 and 2812 models. The improved coherence between the Mid/Treble and Bass driver arrays on the King III is evident, the interlacing much tighter. The driver sets on the original King could be distinguished during listening, but not so with the King III. Perhaps the concentric nature of the Quad design still holds a slight edge in terms of driver coherence. However, the increased resolution and acreage of the new King III panels, similar to those on the Prince II speaker, make it a tough competitor to the Quads. In every other parameter besides coherence I feel the King III is superior. I have heard older and newer Quad panels sound lush tonally, and with the right electronics this is a strong point. But the King III cedes no ground in that respect. Timbre is exemplary, and the voicing of instruments exquisite. In relation to the Quad the tonality of the King III is a strong point, not a weakness. My preference is that I will not even entertain the lower physical size of the Quads – the older Quad ESLs are knee scrapers – which sinks the soundstage almost as though someone opened a cellar door to the band down below! The bottom line is I feel Quad is running to catch up with the King III. I was a huge magnetic planar fan for many years, and was in fact a rabid Magnepan 1.6QR owner who thought the company could do no wrong. But over time I have concluded it has done wrong sonically, and has done so for decades by wrapping the speaker in a non-removable shroud, because floating grill material in front of a panel speaker desiccates the sound quality. Consider the breakwater at the beach; the wall of grill material affects sound waves similarly – crash! Send a big, wide sound wave at high speed toward a semi-permeable membrane and you will have the sonic equivalent of launching a tomato at a strainer, a catastrophe! I was not aware of the appalling degradation of sound of a panel speaker with a permanent grill until I owned and subsequently reviewed the Eminent Technology LFT-8A (See my review of the changeover from the “A” model to the “B” model). Removing the grills resulted in no small improvement to the speakers performance. Magnepan’s use of Mylar with wires glued to it presents another technological challenge. Compared to the nano-like, vaporously thin character of the King III drivers the magnetic planar panel seems ponderous. I now associate the magnetic planar sound technology with slow sound, at least when compared to Kingsound ESL speakers. On the other hand, the challenge to achieve coherence between the hybrid true ribbon and quasi-ribbon mid-bass as seen in the 20.1 testify to the fact that the mid-bass panels are slow. The effect is only worsened with the implementation of non-removable grills. Be sure to read my feedback.

See us at the AXPONA and Newport Shows See our new video tour at: http://www.avshowrooms.com/Emerald_Physics_Tour.htmlAsk us about 6 MONTHS NO INTEREST & NO PAYMENTS thru PayPalIntroducing the new Emerald Physics EP4.3. Save $1000.00 for a limited time at Introductory prices. And get any of the Emerald amps for 50% off with purchase if you need a second amp to biamp. The $1000.00 EP60.2 at only $500.00 with purchase is excellent running the midrange/tweeters. The new Emerald Physics EP4.3 is the big brother to our CS3 MK2 and the little brother to our top selling CS2.3 MK2. It is the CS2.3 MK2 with a single, instead of two 15" woofers. Looked a little differently it is the CS3 MK2 with a 15" open baffle woofer for extended bass response and the ability to run without a subwoofer. The CS2.3 MK2 sounds the same as the EP4.3 with the exception of the last 8Hz in low bass. The Absolute Sound said this about the CS2.3 MK2's:“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. Dynamic range is extremely wide, bass response subterranean, midrange rich and open. Orchestral music is spectacular, while Sinatra on “Angel Eyes” is palpably present, three-dimensional, and spookily real—also rare at this show, unmistakably a true baritone (it took all of maybe twenty seconds before a smile appeared on my wife’s face). If this thing performs in most rooms the way it did here, and given the quality of these hotel rooms that should be practically anywhere else, it may be just about the best performance per dollar I know in high-end loudspeakers.""This speaker excels in so many areas, including those that are central for the truthful reproduction of music in the home, that they warrant the highest recommendation. When you factor in their price—$4800 a pair in the current configuration (but see sidebar)—then their value is quite off the charts." Read the entire review here:http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/emerald-physics-cs23-mk-ii-loudspeaker/The EP4.3 comes with our $600.00 Special Edition midrange/tweeter crossover thta is optional for the 2.3 MK2. Efficiency is the same 95Db as the CS3 MK2 but bass response now extends to 28Hz in a small open baffle design that will fill virtually any room with Emerald’s unique sonic signature. And just like all Emerald designs the EP4.3 removes most of the rooms sonics so they will work in virtually all rooms. More than one customer has called our speakers Magnepan’s on steroids. Feel free to compare these to any $20k speaker and you will be amazed. With its new Emerald Physics designed 12" point source professional driver system, the EP4.3 is a true 3-way, bi-amplified, dipole, controlled directivity speaker. Cutting edge sonic performance establishes a new level of realism & dimensionality at anywhere near its Internet Direct cost. This new EP4.3 model does not share a single part from the original CS2 or CS3/2.3 series products. It has new outboard Special Edition crossovers, Emerald DSP crossover/EQ, new Emerald designed drivers, upgraded baffle, connectors and much improved cosmetics of the older CS series The new Emerald point source midrange/tweeter offers amazing imaging and soundstaging. The innovation continues in the Bass range with our unique Aperture Bass Propagation Technology. This proprietary system is used for the custom Emerald 15" dipole woofer, improving low frequency power and linearity, while improving on the speed and articulation of the original CS2.3. The new custom designed Emerald 15" woofer moves 80% more air than the original CS2.3 and CS2.7 woofers so a single 15 gets us almost as much bass as the dual 15’s of the older models. DSP equalization and active crossover functions are provided by the included Emerald Physics DSP2.4 Digital Processor and the upgraded included $600.00 passive Special Edition crossover uses custom Emerald Physics caps as well as many other upgraded parts & internal OCC long grain wire.
