MAKE A STATEMENT

Because the Music Matters.

You may have heard expensive speakers attempt the success of Alex - but none better - not at this price

Eddie set a standard for musical transparency, spacial imaging and transparency. Alex set forth to follow that path, build on the DNA of Eddie, to create a bigger statement. Alex has achieved that goal.

No don’t get us wrong. Alex and Eddie coexist. There is no sibling rivalry between these two musical artists. But there are differences. With a second mid-bass driver, a dedicated subwoofer and mandatory bi-amping Alex takes the performance of Eddie to a new level. Of course that comes at a price.

If you can imagine even great spacial imaging and dynamic range than Eddie. With the second mid-bass driver and bi-amping there is a greater sense of ease in the top end that takes on an almost etherial quality. As a nice side effect, Alex is 3 dB more efficient. Finally, the subwoofer by itself, extends down to 19 Hz. More than that – without any equalization. If you never heard the ‘air’ around bass possible – not only will the hair on your neck stand up when listening to Alex – it might just fall out

There are a number of reasons Alex is a concert-worthy reproducer of music. Let’s start with our proprietary Strat 1 planar midrange. It features the strongest neodymium magnets and the most rigid structure imaginable. And when you put a physicist who is a musician in charge of creating the F1 there are virtually no compromises.

Alex also features a true ribbon tweeter with the moving mass of only 16 mg – something no accordion pleated tweeter can achieve. Dual RM7 mid-woofers also have a low moving mass and phase plug with the speed and phase coherency to achieve a seamless transition to the planar. And with dual mid-woofers there is 3 dB more efficiency and driver fatigue is all but eliminated.

Alex’ crossover is without compromise. Point-to-point wiring with proprietary silver coated multi-gauge wire with silver solder, along with expensive hand-matched Mundorf Supreme capacitors assure a transparent sound.

There is some extraordinary engineering that goes into the cabinet as well. Wall thicknesses vary from 1 1/2″ to 3″ with quad-bracing. Try a knuckle wrap on that. [Be careful not to hurt your hand.] This allows the subwoofer to perform to 19 Hz without any amplified equalization. Try that with a small amp and box. 

All of this delivers an overall organic result – to deliver you-are-there performance levels – whether classical, jazz, rock or movies.

The Absolute Sound Names EDDIE Best of Show

A number of editors from the top audiophile magazines auditioned EDDIE at T.H.E. Show in Newport Beach the first week of June. Here is the first reaction to EDDIE.

“The Eddie speaker from a new speaker company called Evoke caught my ear for its tremendous price-to-performance ratio. The $3995-per-pair Eddie features a ribbon tweeter, planar-magnetic midrange, and a cone woofer. Driven by NuPrime electronics, it sounded clean, fast, and transparent—and like it should cost much more than $4k.” [Read more…]

“I am awed by the music…”

Comments from a new EDDIE owner: “I chose your setup recommendation and … went back to my 45 Hz subwoofer setting. I also raised the height of my listening position to be level with the planar midrange drivers. I made minor adjustments to the midrange and treble controls to balance the sound (nice attenuators!).

I’m hearing life sized instruments and voices. It’s like my much valued, huge soundstage disappeared to be replaced by musicians and their instruments. [Read more…]

WOW Says New Owner of EDDIE

I just got the EDDIE speakers. I am running them in class A mode up to 35 watts (I haven’t used more than 10 watts so far). The speakers are efficient. The EDDIE’s are wired with Nordost flat speaker wire with banana plugs. I left the mid and tweeter settings at your recommended 10 o’clock positions.

The EDDIE speakers are currently crossing over to a pair 8″ Eton Hexacone mid bass/bass drivers that are mounted in a fairly large, custom, semi-aperiodic sealed dual chamber enclosure of my design. The Etons run with no low pass filter. I use a Martin Logan servo controlled 10″ aluminum coned subwoofer below 45 Hz. [Read more…]
