Estelon has recently unveiled the latest limited edition X Diamond Signature Edition loudspeakers, boasting several enhancements that elevate the already exceptional performance of the X Diamond Mk II model.

Featuring terminals inspired by the Extreme Mk II model, these loudspeakers showcase a distinctive clamp-like design. These spring-loaded terminals ensure optimal cable connections and eliminate unnecessary metal-to-metal transitions, all crafted using a 3D printer.

The internal wiring of the speakers mirrors that of the Forza and Extreme Mk II models from the company. Sourced from American Kubala-Sosna, these wires utilize OptimiZ technology to enhance transparency in the mid and high frequencies, delivering an immersive listening experience with improved spatial awareness and enhanced separation.

The X Diamond Signature Edition crossover is equipped with German Mundorf Ultra resistors for the mid and high frequencies, along with resin-baked coils for the low frequencies. This insulation method involves applying epoxy resin to the coils during manufacturing, followed by baking in an oven to harden the resin, ensuring complete insulation.

The speaker’s design exudes the elegance of the X Diamond Mk II, enhanced by intricate stainless steel finials meticulously crafted to add a touch of luxury to its aesthetic.

For an enhanced audio experience, the X Diamond Signature Edition comes with Ultra SS V2 isolation feet from American Stillpoints. Each speaker proudly features Alfred Vassilkov’s signature, symbolizing his unwavering dedication to excellence.

Limited to just 20 pairs, the X Diamond Signature Edition loudspeakers are a true collector’s item.
