EPI & Epicure Speakers:
The Epicure 20 and 20+
This pair has been freshly rebuilt with all new HUMAN parts:
The Epicure 20 and 20+ (and their stablemate, the EPI 201) were Winslow Burhoe's best early attempts to get his speakers to "blend in" to the room using his "module" design of woofers and tweeters that were engineered to complement each other. These featured an eight inch woofer and one inch concave dome tweeter on both the front facing baffle and a precisely angled top panel. Designed to be placed against the wall, and on the floor, the sound would simply wrap up and around the cabinet and flow into the room.
