If you've been a fan of Heco's speakers from afar, you'll be glad to hear the company's Aleva range is to be released in the UK by distributor Pure Sound. If you'd never heard of them then, hey, take a look...
Prices range from £500 for the bookshelf Aleva 200 speakers and go up to £1000 for the floorstanding Aleva 400s.
The Aleva range has newly developed drives complete with 'Kraft' paper cones, which are made from a mixture of long fibre pulp and wool. These are said to resemble the paper used in 'classic drivers' – we're talking Western Electric and Saba, not Ayrton Senna.
The driver chassis are diamond finished aluminium castings, while the tweeters have an aluminium faceplate, too. The MDF cabinets are available in cherry read wood veneers as well as silver and black lacquer finishes.
The floorstanding models feature integrated plinths and are biwirable.
Other than the prices listed above, details remain sketchy – not least on the subwoofer and any 5.1 system. Keep your eyes on the site for more details as and when we get them.
