Estelon Aura Floorstanding Loudspeakers Revealed

Estelon's Aura loudspeakers are a three-way passive sealed box design that has been created with consideration of real-life listening spaces.

The new Aura floorstanders from Estelon have been designed by Alfred Vassilkov and promise an immersive and captivating audio experience like no other speaker of this size.

Thanks to meticulous attention to detail and cutting-edge technology, the Aura not only looks like a unique piece of art due to its distinctive shape, the technically sophisticated design and advanced surface geometry result in characteristics that allow for a three-dimensional soundscape as well as the lack of parallel walls allowing “only pure and uninfluenced sound to emanate from the high-performance drivers”.

The cabinet is created using a thermoformed proprietary composite. This makes the advanced surface geometry and various internal chambers possible, resulting in characteristics that “allow for ideal acoustical properties”, according to Estelon.

Those drivers include a 26mm (1-inch) Scan-Speak Illuminator textile dome tweeter, Satori's 130mm (5-inch) mid-bass and 250mm (10-inch) Faital woofer.

The tweeter features a symmetrical drive motor that promises outstanding sound quality and linearity, regardless if the music is reproduced at high or low volume levels. Additionally, we are told that the tweeter waveguide has been fine-tuned to the driver and, along with the soft curves of the cabinet, eliminates the negative reflective impacts from the driver output. The upshot being the speaker's directivity is homogenous and wide.

The mid-woofer is by Satori and uses a proprietary Egyptian Papyrus Cone for “transparency and effortless sound delivery”. Meanwhile, the vented aerodynamic cast aluminium chassis provides optimum strength and low compression, says Estelon, adding that the driver features a soft, low-dampening rubber surround for the optimum transient response, and its neodymium motor system is optimised for low distortion. In addition, the Estonian-based company says the silver lead wires are attached 180° apart for improved stability.

Finally, bringing “articulate, deep bass” is the downward-firing 10-inch Faital woofer with a semi-pressed paper cone. Estelon tells us that the curved base plate's design and driver elevation from the floor allows the bass to propagate properly through the provided opening, even when the speaker is placed on thick carpeting.

Furthermore, the acoustical environment created in the base of the Aura provides an additional low-pass filter. This low-pass curve is deeper than the electrical filter; therefore, the higher frequencies produced by the bass driver, at around 80Hz, are eliminated.

Together this three-way loudspeaker claims a frequency response of 35 Hz-25 kHz and 90 dB/2.83 V sensitivity. Nominal impedance is rated at 4Ω (min 2Ω at 58 Hz).

Estelon's Aura floorstanding loudspeaker is available now priced at AU$27,500 and comes in white and black options and sports magnetic grilles.

    applause awards

    Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.

    Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.

    The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.

    We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
