e-Class Architectural Element Systems

The new e-Class Architectural Element Systems is a unique range of products designed for installation applications that establishes a new paradigm that will change sound designers basic assumptions about the size, look and the performance of compact loudspeakers. Paired with VUEDrive electronics, the e-Class provides audiophile quality and professional audio sound pressure levels from ascetically pleasing compact loudspeakers.  The integration of Dante networking and in-speaker and in-wall VUEDrive systems in development will enable ways of thinking about distributed audio and audio for video.

The first member of the e-Class the e-352 Nano surface mount loudspeaker is just the start.  It will be followed by the es-296ACM with dual 15 x 23 cm elliptical cone driver subwoofer. The es-269ACM protrudes 8.5 inches from the floor or wall, while providing more output down to 40 Hz than a much larger dual 8-inch system. VUE will be sampling e-Class systems this summer with full production of the e-352 planed for the third quarter of 2017 and the es-269ACM production planed for the fourth quarter of 2017.

The new V2.5 rack-mount VUEDrive system will support e-Class products and offer 2 inputs and four 500 watt zone outputs with preset DSP configurations for all e-Class products.  It will feature full remote via SystemVUE software on iOS, Mac OS and Windows along with Analog, AES digital and Dante network audio inputs.
