ESL57 "QA“

Solid, meachanically stable, visually coherent... this is how the option "QA" could be described in short words. The longer siderails bring the ESL57 into a position optimised for the listening position. The sturdy real wood finish below the front grille gives it a solid, visually coherent appearance. At the same time, the entire construction becomes invisibly mechanically more stable. The siderails and the rear foot, which is also longer, have invisible threads on the underside. Screw-in spikes or rubber feet allow further adjustment and provide a secure stand on different floors.

 price: 890€ incl. VAT surcharge when ordering a pair of ESL57 (different types of wood available).
Price: 1190€ incl. VAT when ordering the longer siderails plus longer rear foot plus real wood finish below the front grille individually. The kit "QA" contains all parts for a pair. Craftsmanship required for assembly.
