Plus.. “O H!”
I am really surprised there is not much more talk about these vintage EPI speakers .. maybe alot of folks have never actually listened to them. They just seem the perfect match with my Marantz 2245 and Sony ps-x600 turntable, the sound to me is very very good and everyone who i've let listen to them is really impressed
There is, do a search for them and you’ll find plenty. Also, in many, many ways those are very much “just the beginning...” so often times folks get curious and try the 110’s, or come across the 150’s, or the 201’s, 202’s and so forth...
The original 100’s are the base “module” from a wonderfully brilliant speaker designer with an strong pedigree, Winslow Burhoe.
A very knowledgeable former EPI/EPICURE employee is a member here, and at times is a frequent contributor (saea501), most who venture into EPI/EPICURE speakers who heed his advice are often very, very pleased that they did. He really knows how to get the absolute best of many of the orginal and many agree “best” EPI models.
Several other AK members have (or have had) several models, from the 100’s up through the M1000 towers. Enjoy the ride man, enjoy it!
Didn’t think about trying Pa woofers for replacements . In a speaker ! Haha.cool
Looks higher end did it cost a lot?
Found theses 30 years ago no speakers. Showed someone on here a picture of them, they pointed me to Huw . The rest is history . I love them.
Those are exactly what I have. I liked them so much, they are going into a bedroom system I’m putting together featuring the EPI M100s, McIntosh MA-6200, a Dual 1019, and an Aiwa M700 Cassette Deck. I’ve already tested them together and really loved what I heard. More importantly, my wife does too!
202’s, nice, solid low frequency reproduction, beautiful high frequencies, directionally.
Looks like a bi or dipole design way before surrounds sound . Epic !!! So cool what’s the model #?
There are 202's or 250's they were empty so had nothing to go off of to really tell. I know am on the look out for their big brother.
Congrats to you, Tadd. I have a pair of Epi Model 20's that I transplanted to a pair of 201 cabinets. I also used Huw's crossover.
The sound is exceptional, tho they're idle right now. I have too many speakers.
Yep, I have a picture very similar to that one... , though my son was a couple years older than the boy above.
Nice speakers Tadd. I bet they sound awesome. I'm always on the lookout for 100's, and I would like to try the human speakers in some cool looking cabinets
that I have.
I do have a set of M150's that I love the sound and looks of. However, all this talk of ferro-fluid has me slightly concerned.
Mine have the masonite tweeters identical to those pictured in post #10. Does anyone know if these use ferro fluid?
Nope, Masonite’s are Air-Spring tweeters, no fluid, all good!
