The following is copied from a vintage magazine advertisement:
Traditionally, the audiophile has had to choose between the East Coast Sound and the West Coast Sound, each with its own particular advantages and disadvantages.
The East Coast Sound is extremely accurate. The dispersion characteristics of East Coast speakers are, as a rule, excellent. Unfortunately, they usually need a lot of power to perform.
West Coast speakers are noted for their efficiency and volume. Unfortunately, accuracy isn't one of their strong suits.
Introducing the EPI 200
After years of research and development, the engineers at EPI have created a speaker that combines the best qualities of East and West.
With its 12-inch passive radiator, the EPI 200 has all the efficiency of the most popular West Coast speakers. A 30-watt receiver powers it with ease.
With that power, the EPI 200 produces the king of sound EPI is famous for: Linear Sound. A pure, rich, accurate sound from 20,000 Hz all the way down to 34 Hz.
And dispersion? In a word, the Model 200's dispersion characteristics are superb. Up to 15,000 Hz, the speaker's off-axis dispersion is down an average of only 3 dB - a performance even other East Coast speaker makers can only dream about.
At $400, the EPI 200 would be an exceptional value. But at under $300, it is nothing short of phenomenal.
The EPI 200: The best of the East. The best of the West.
