ELAC Launches the 330.3 JET Third Generation Audiophile
If you want to surround yourself with big
music, not big speakers, you will be surprised to see what's new
at the High End Show in Munich. The ELAC 330.3 JET is the third
generation of this cult audiophile loudspeaker which has caused
quite a sensation worldwide.
At only 28 cm in height and 19 cm in width
(but weighing a substantial 10kg), this loudspeaker is suitable
for both bookshelf and stand mounting. The 330.3 JET's sound so
good they will send a shiver down your spine and make your ears
That's no surprise because ELAC has provided
this diminutive loudspeaker with the same technology that has, until
now, only been employed in their flagship loudspeaker.
This technology is centred around the new
180mm LLD mid/bass drive unit which incorporates the movement of
a short-wound voice coil in a long air gap with a homogeneous magnetic
field. This endows the ELAC 330.3 Jet with extremely linear driver
movement, ensuring pure and punchy deep bass, a high maximum output
level and precise sound even at high levels. Also incorporated is
the JET III tweeter which, due to its exceptional transparency and
smooth linear sound reproduction (all the way to 50kHz), has become
one of the most legendary tweeters in the world of hifi.
With the ELAC 330.3 JET's beautiful extruded
aluminium cabinet essentially wrapped around these two amazing drive
units, there is effectively no front baffle and the sound is freed
from any unwanted diffraction effects. This results in fantastic
spatial depth, outstanding imaging and perfect instrumental localization
in both small and larger rooms.
The ELAC 330.3 JET is completely manufactured
by ELAC in Germany - an engineering achievement considered remarkable
in the hifi world.
