Some of the most important milestones in the history of high fidelity audio have been marked by the ESB Company. On this page are some of them: Ideas, insights, basic applications of electro-acoustic principles and above all a passion for high fidelity audio. These are the foundations of our history.
For ESB making good sounding speakers is not enough. ESB goes beyond, to optimize other factors as the listening environment and the soundstage. So the UMA, the DSR, the DSR/DSP. These are some of the technological goals have now been adapted by many other manufacturers.
ESB has transferred all the experience and innovation of its 50 years of audio leadership into the ESB Car Audio products. The car audio speakers have the same performance as those used in home loudspeakers, but engineered to fit musically within a vehicle.
Just like live.
The listening environment and the soundstage have been the subjects of extensive research with the most modern and advanced tools at ESB, just as the quality of the drivers has been a key factor in ESB research and development. ESB has one of the world's largest anechoic chambers (it can drop as low as 20 Hertz and to make measurements up to 3 meters), reverberation chambers, and more environments so as to simulate the different domestic conditions, etc. These are the technical tools that have allowed engineers to measure and analyze the ESB speakers for 50 years. But the instruments and computers were never the final solution. Listening was always been the factor that determined the final choices, a subjective listening made by Italians, who have always had a passion for music (classical or light makes no difference ) and they have developed, in many generations, a hearing, sensitive and refined, that we can consider the real crux of the ESB Sound. Come dal vivo: "JUST LIKE LIVE"
Super High-End Speaker Series
The DIECIMILA series has been designed without considering any kind of economic, constructive and technological limitations, in order to obtain absolute sonic purity in music reproduction.
We have focused our research and development laboratory on the ability to have full control over all speaker features and parameters, allowing us to build these products without the typical compromises that many high-end speaker manufacturers have to make.
8000 - Elevated to perfection
The 8000 series can be considered the direct heir of the 7000 series. The goal was to renew a variety of speakers in itself exceptional, with the help of the latest technologies and the use of the best materials available today; always with an eye to the versatility of installation. Key to the development of this type of system in the car was so take full advantage of their exceptional musicality. In the 8000 series every detail was taken care of with the utmost care, from the choice of materials to the forms, from the construction and finishing of the baskets to the ventilation systems of magnets and coils. It has improved what was thought to be difficult to improve and we strongly believe that it has laid the foundation for another decade of success.
