With more than 50 years in the speaker industry, Elipson offers a range of hi-fi products and stylish spherical speakers, including the Elipson Planet speakers, which take inspiration from the highly regarded BS30 vintage design (circa 1960).

Founder Joseph Leon, born in Bordeaux 1908, was an engineer from the School of Arts and Crafts and passionate in acoustic research. Elipson began in 1938 as a company called Multi-Engine which manufactured toy engines of miniature electric trains. The company's current director and engineer Henry Bazin Maurice Latour made a decision to move towards the development of speakers consisting of a sphere and an ellipsoidal reflector in 1940.

Joseph Leon aimed to concentrate all of the loudspeaker's acoustic energy through the reflector to enhance sound in an ultra-modern design that hadn't been seen before. In developing the system of the conch, Elipson allows sound to use a large space with precision and quality. Each model was worked for a place with a specific commitment; a vent, a specific speaker, a special reflector ellipsoid.

In 1948 Joseph became CEO of the company, going on to change its name to Elipson and instilling research on all-round reflectors and resonators etc. By 1960 the company began the search channel speaker with numerous patents.

Joint research resulted in a first series of around twenty models oriented at 30 degrees with an elliptical princeps, a shift in medium (HP Cabasse), a micro Melodium as a tweeter and positioned mechanical shift to optimize the phase response with other speakers. This model is legendary for its technical advances and aesthetic helping Leon become medallist of the Order of Merit for research and invention.

This collaboration also delivered another legendary model 4050 as well as the accompanying series including the 4240, 502, 402. This assured the public of the success of smaller models like the BS40 and 4040 which were sized for apartments.

In 2009, the company returned to the sources of expertise, with a series of spherical enclosures, L planet that were a modern evolution of the 4050 and the 4260. To meet the needs of both communities and individuals, Elipson offers a range of integrated speakers. High definition and very versatile, these can be used for many applications including conference rooms, shopping centres, amphitheatres, restaurants, shops, hotels, business premises, private dedicated rooms, schools.

Elipson's range will please your eyes as much as your ears and also includes a range of speaker packages, from simple 2.1 desktop solutions, to 5.1 speaker packages for home cinema, through to the highly impressive Sound Tree.

By having speakers positioned around the room, in front and behind of your listening position, Surround Sound Speakers offer an unrivalled home cinema experience – enabling you to immerse yourself in your favourite movies and TV and really feel that extra bit closer to the action. Some models use smaller, purpose-built home cinema speakers, which are easier to accommodate in the average living room and may even include wall or ceiling mounting options. However, many of our Surround Sound Systems utilise hi-fi speakers as the front and rear channels, either bookshelf or floorstanders, which benefit from improved soundstage, imaging and fidelity and can help to offer a much greater cinematic experience.

The addition of a dedicated subwoofer adds significantly better bass performance than just speakers alone. Bass is responsible for the rumble of the engine in a car chase, or the impact of an explosion in an action movie. By having a good quality subwoofer, these scenes will be more impactful and more immersive, resulting in a much better cinematic viewing experience.

Some Surround Sound Systems that we offer utilise Floor Standing speakers as the front channels – which are ideal as they can offer greater scale, soundstage and bass performance. This improves the overall coherency and stereo imaging of the system, which will help with creating the impression of immersion in the audio of your movie or TV show. Alternatively, as a compromise between space and sound, Bookshelf speakers can also make excellent front channel speakers as, while they lack the added bass of their floorstanding counterparts, they can more than make up for it with rhythm and attack, particularly as a dedicated subwoofer handles the majority of bass frequencies. Like hi-fi stereo speakers, bookshelf speakers used as Surround Sound Speakers will perform much better on dedicated speaker stands, which will position the speakers at the ideal listening height, and will prevent unwanted resonance effecting the overall sound they produce. Many models of speaker stands can be filled to add mass and weight. This not only improves the stability of the speaker stand, but can also add bass impact and authority to your speakers.

The centre speaker makes up a large amount of dialogue and mid and high frequencies – meaning that selecting a centre speaker to tonally match the rest of your Surround Sound Speakers is a must. This isn’t a worry with out hand selected range of systems as we offer bundles of speakers designed and built to sound perfect in unison with one another. Once again, a centre speaker will perform better on a dedicated speaker stand.
