Sony launched at this year's CES show a new line of speakers into a new assortment in their ES Line.


Quote:
The ES Speakers, like the earlier (and pricier) AR line, include a rigid cabinet crafted of Scandinavian birch to control harmonics. Both the tower and bookshelf models are two-way speakers, like the AR series, with partitioned woofers to isolate the mid-range and minimize the effects of woofer back-radiation.
Quote:
The tweeters are Sony’s I-Array which couples one tweeter with two super tweeters to function as a single tweeter. This system is designed to avoid the peaks and dips that can unnaturally color audio reproduction and offer a natural balance across frequencies.


Quote:
SS-NA2ES is a 3-way, 6-driver, bass reflex floor-standing speaker system with a
One25 mm soft-dome tweeter,
Two 19 mm soft-dome tweeters,
One130 mm paper cone midrange
Two double-drive 165 mm aluminum-cone woofers

The SS-NA5ES is a 2-way, 4-driver, bass reflex bookshelf speaker system with a
One 25 mm soft-dome tweeter
Two 19 mm soft-dome tweeters
One 130 mm aluminum-cone woofer

The SS-NA8ES is a 2-way, 5-driver, bass reflex center channel speaker system with a
25 mm soft-dome tweeter
Two 19 mm soft-dome tweeters
Two 130 aluminum-cone woofers

SA-NA9ES is an active subwoofer system with two 250 mm aluminum-cone woofers.

The floor-standing speakers will sell for $10,000/pr; the bookshelf speakers for $6,000/pr; the subwoofer for $4,000 and the center channel for $3,000.


What do you think about these puppies?

I'd love to have a pair of the floor-standers. My last pair of Sony speakers - SS-K90ED - were great, often made me feel like the 'Maxell Guy'. These are much more serious. When Sony's engineers are given carte blanche, they usually deliver. Makes me reminisce about the days long ago when I had an all Sony ES rig.

I must say Sony ES has always delivered some outstanding products. A buddy of mine had the same speakers you had SS-K90ED and I hear ya. They we're actually impressive.
