  1. Late reply to Lawrence 001, re. slogan writing, answer no, I was a Land Rover employee at the time, now retired, but maybe I should look into it if, as you claim it pays thousands!?. I could be rich!!!.. Ps, if anyone out there is interested in doing a trade for my ES 25s for a pair of ES14's or W.H.Y. pls. message me.
  2. The slogan was to reflect the epos ethos of simplicity in their approach to speaker building, eg. No complicated crossovers, in house design and build of thier own drive units etc. So I submitted a slogan which read, using the four letters of EPOS....Evolutionary-Pure-Outstandingly-Simple. Which I couldn't believe won me a £1505 pair of speakers!!!.I also won a pair of NEAT speakers in another hifi world comp. again for another unmemorable slogan.
  3. His thanks, I know what you mean about the tri-wire business but the difference in sound quality is worth it, I have an audiolab 8000p driving the mid and bass and an 8000s driving the tweeters. My particular 25''s were the actual pair that were featured in Hi fi world magazine for the launch of the es range in 1990 and we're first prize in a slogan competition, which I won!, second prize was a pair of 14''s which I actually would have prefered !. And would swap the 25' for!. I also have a pair of 11's in a second system, rotel pre and power with rega appollo cd.
  4. Hi, did you ever solve your issue?, I have a pair of ES 25''s, I think all the ES range were built the same way, the only way to access the drivers and internals is to remove the front black trims surrounding the drivers, I didn't like the look of them and wanted to expose the drive units to make the speakers more conventional looking. They can be removed but it's not easy as they are fixed on with adhesive, I started with a Stanley knife, very carefully scored all the way around the edge and then got a blade and gently got behind the plate, you can then very slowly remove the trim and expose the drive units, this can cause minor damage to the cabinets but after some gentle sanding and some satin black paint I much preferred how they looked. I still have the trims and they can be re- fixed if needs be. Hope this helps.
