From time to time, we experiment with new/exciting/special materials in order to figure if these could be used for creating new looks for our products. These projects require a lot of time and manual work on materials which are everything but easy – this is why these unique editions are limited to a single run and only a few pieces at a time.
The meteor edition is a limited version of our best selling compressor, the xpressor 500. The completely unique appearance reminds of metallic meteorites which can be found in the great museums of natural science all around the globe, and hence the name was born.
The amazing 3D structured surface of this special aluminum was never meant to be used for front panels of high grade audio equipment, as the beautiful patterns it shows are the result of gigantic buzz saws used to cut the massive blocks into big slices.

The origin for this limited series was a lucky find: Two stunning, rare batches of premium spalted beech wood, showing striking individual waveform patterns and amazing discolorations – a result of natural processes within the wood over a long period of time.
Handcrafted by the elysia team, the stunning front panels created from these pieces of wood are rock solid, and a truly sophisticated four-layer construction: beautiful spalted beech on contrasting dark wenge on regular beech on black powdered steel.

Each individual module features a unique groove pattern based on the individual record from which it was crafted. The vinyl front panels are supported by a sepia-colored layer of acrylic glass, gently emphasizing the vintage vibe of this ultimate analog appearance.
