Stratton Acoustics, well-known for their innovative approach to high-end audio equipment, has introduced their latest creation, the Element 12 loudspeakers. These standmount loudspeakers combine exquisite craftsmanship with advanced acoustic engineering to deliver a truly captivating sonic experience.

Handmade in the UK, the Element 12 is the brainchild of David Fowler, founder, designer, and manufacturer at Stratton Acoustics, along with Phil Ward, electro-acoustic engineer. Following the success of their previous model, the Elypsis 1512, the Element 12 aims to provide audiophiles with a smaller yet equally compelling option for immersive listening.

At first glance, the Element 12 loudspeakers stand out with their striking design and attention to detail. Crafted from bamboo ply panels, the cabinet houses a custom-made 12-inch paper bass/mid driver with dual voice coils, ensuring reduced distortion and compression for pristine sound reproduction. The speaker's reflex ports, cleverly located on the underside, contribute to a frequency response down to 38Hz while maintaining an impressive sensitivity of 94dB.

In the realm of high frequencies, the Element 12 loudspeakers employ a 29mm soft dome tweeter with its own neodymium-iron-boron magnet motor. This tweeter is housed within Stratton's patented Mechanically Isolated Tweeter Assembly, enhancing radiation efficiency and dispersion for crystal-clear highs.

According to David Fowler, the Element 12 is designed to provide a "singular, uncommon focus on dynamics, rhythm, and engagement," a philosophy evident in every aspect of its construction. From the precision-engineered cabinet to the carefully selected crossover components, each element is optimized to deliver an immersive listening experience that captivates the senses.

The Element 12 is not only a feat of engineering but also a work of art. Available in four gloss mirror finishes—piano white with silver, piano black with black and gold, maple with silver, and ziricote with black and gold—the speakers exude elegance and sophistication.

“There are many, many forms of addiction,” said David. “Ours is simply the desire to continue creating beautifully crafted, artisan-built loudspeakers that nail you to your seat the instant you hear them playing the music you can’t get enough of. In short, we get our ‘fix’ by supplying customers with theirs.”
