Back in November, French speaker manufacturer Elipson announced it would be bringing its Planet L range to the UK, and it forms the centrepiece of its display here at Bristol.
The Planet L is a revival of Elipson's original spherical speaker, and is the result of two years research and development. It features a bass reflex enclosure made from an inert glass-fibre resin compound and finished in a choice of three gloss colours: red, white and black.
Within the cabinet is a two-way, 16.5mm coaxial driver with a 25mm soft-dome tweeter. The speakers can be used for table, floor, wall and ceiling mounting and can be bought as a stereo pair for £599, or used to make up a multichannel system.
Later this year, Elipson plans to develop active wireless audio systems.
Also on the Elipson stand at Bristol is Parrot's Zikmu iPod dock system, designed by Philippe Starck, and AKG's latest headphone range, endorsed by Quincy Jones.
