ESS Nine


New, in appearance and in it's driver crossover complex. A classic bookshelf size but excitingly styled and with all the sonic glamour and mystery of an ESS super system.

The deep, rich appearance of the ESS Nine fully complements its luxurious sonic character. A painstakingly perfected three-way system it rolls forth deep, incredibly taut bass with enough force to overwhelm the most avid rock fan while projecting an overall purity impeccable enough to excite the chamber ensemble enthusiast.

Thoroughly transparent and uncolored in character the Nine dominates by its versatility and by the amazing acceleration of its drivers. Guitar transients leap forth, snare drums are crisp and clear in their attacks, pianos sound like pianos, the bow of the string bass really bites.

The ESS Nine misses nothing - the complex interplay of a Santana, the breathy purity and stunning accompaniment of Carly Simon, the searing excitement of a Clockwork Orange by Walter Carlos.

The Nine captures it all. Total clarity through instantaneous acceleration. Sound as clear as light.
