Estelon Announces Next-Gen X Centro Mk II Centre-Channel Speakers

Estelon's high-end centre channel speakers have been upgraded to next-gen status with the X Centro Mk II and X Centro Diamond Mk II.

The X Centro Mk II from Estelon promises “unparalleled sound performance” in its duty as a centre channel loudspeaker within a high-end home cinema or multichannel music system. Furthermore, the X Centro Mk II takes its design from the Estonian company's XC offering. You have a couple of models to choose from, with the X Centro Mk II offering a ceramic inverted dome tweeter. Meanwhile, the aptly-named X Centro Diamond Mk II boasts a diamond tweeter.

As with all X Series models, it uses high-quality drivers designed and produced by the highly regarded German driver manufacturer Accuton which is one of the best driver manufacturers in the world right now.

Estelon says that the ceramic 25 mm (1-inch) inverted dome alpha corundum tweeter keeps the distortion exceptionally low, with the first break-up modes pushed out of the audible range. Opt for the diamond 25 mm (1-inch) chemical vapour-deposited “diamond membrane” tweeter, and you are promised a driver that can reproduce sounds up to the highest frequencies for human hearing range distortion-free.

We are told that the two 158 mm (7-inch) ceramic mid-woofers produce an immaculate impulse response with extraordinarily low total harmonic distortion and intermodulation distortion.

The result is that X Centro has a claimed frequency response of 45 Hz-30 kHz, while the Diamond version takes that to 45 Hz-60 kHz. Both versions have a stated 91 dB/2.83 V sensitivity and 150 Watt power handling capability.

All internal wiring is taken care of by Kubala-Sonsa, and the X Centro Mk II benefits from a revised crossover, featuring new and improved resistors and capacitors that offer a wider dynamic range and greater transparency, says the manufacturer. Additionally, we're informed that all filter components are point-to-point connected, hand-soldered with high-quality silver solder while using the shortest possible cable runs between drivers, crossover and binding posts.

The 48 kg X Centro Mk II sits on an integrated stand featuring a milled thick billet aluminium base attached to a sleek aluminium tube that secures the speaker.

The Estelon X Centro Mk II range is available now, with the ceramic tweetered version costing US$18,000, and the X Centro Diamond Mk II is priced at US$27,000.
