Excerpt: Who says loudspeakers have to be plain old wooden cabinets? French company Elipson certainly wants you to think outside the box with its Planet L, one of the most striking designs we've tested in recent years.
Pros: Considerable style, good fit and finish, strong imaging and midrange transparency
Cons: Don’t like big bass, big rooms or big volume levels
Excerpt: Design can often be divisive: one person’s eye-candy can be another’s eyesore. Bravo, then, to French firm Elipson for daring to be different with its new Music Centre, which shatters the monotonous 435mm-wide regimentation of most hi-fi design.
Pros: Lucid imaging and enjoyable balance, great build and spec for the price, unique style
Cons: A more conventional pair of speakers will sound better all-round
