Epos Epic 1 (available on 0% finance when you spend over £1000) are the smallest speakers in the Epic range, designed to deliver big performance from a compact cabinet, but still hold true to Epos’s purist principles of simple crossover, well-behaved drive units and clean understated aesthetics. At first glance, the Epic range harks back to an 80’s look, but with a modern twist. Epos uses a high-quality vinyl wood veneer to produce a high-end appearance whilst keeping the Epic’s entry-level price point in mind.
Uniquely, its front baffle design presents two surprisingly different faces. Straight out of the box the Epic 1 is supplied with an audiophile baffle with no visible fixing screws, grille-fixing holes or cloth. The baffle is machined around the woofer to create a gently contoured horn shape and, unlike a conventional grille frame; there are no added obstructions or sharp edges to cause reflections and sound colorations.
In the carton you will also find an optional cloth-covered grille if you prefer not to look at speaker drivers. The spare grille has the same audible reflection-free advantages found in the ‘audiophile’ baffle, but elegantly hides the drivers under a fine acoustically transparent cloth, providing protection to the more delicate parts of the speaker.
Epos paid great attention to every single minute detail during the design of the Epic 1, to give customers the best sound at the best price. It comes as no surprise that this little speaker will have you in awe from the first note. The level of sound stage, depth and detail is truly exceptional, with a clarity that outshines the competition and even some higher priced speakers.
The Epic 1 is a truly eye and ear-opening loudspeaker that will keep you enthralled listening to your favorite tracks for many years to come.

'Outwardly the 20Kg Epic 5 appears to be rather a lot of speaker for the money... and it sounded like it too. Punching considerably above its weight the Epos sounded smooth and refined, belying its modest price.' (Hi-Fi News Magazine May 2012)
"Hugely likeable speakers with a broad sonic appeal. 98cm tall and 32cm deep, the Epic 5s are fairly big but don’t dominate a room. There are solid MDF plinths in the box, plus a set of sturdy spikes. We also found the speakers sound their best at least a foot from a rear wall and toed in slightly towards the listener. There’s a simplicity to the Epic 5s’ sound which is quite charming. They don’t have the dynamic versatility and spark of the class-leaders around this price, but they’re still extremely easy to live with." (What Hi-Fi Magazine Awards 2013)
"It delivered in-room bass that was tight, controlled and highly expressive. Outwardly the 20kg Epic 5 appears to be rather a lot of speaker for the money.... and it performed like that too. The Epos 5 was reviewed in our May '12 group test of six floorstanders and awarded our Outstanding Product badge on account of its epic performance at low cost. Finely voiced,it sounds large and open, and delivers good dynamics. An excellent choice for the audiophile with a restricted budget." (Hi-Fi News Magazine Yearbook 2012)
