Elipson x Bleu de Chauffe, made in France
Founded in 2009, the goal of the Bleu de Chauffe leather goods company is to create exceptional pieces. The relationship with Elipson therefore came naturally. On the Elipson Chroma 400 RIAA BT turntable, the leather goods manufacturer uses full-grain French leather. Fulling makes the leather soft, revealing its natural, pigmented grain. Combined with the birch of the turntable chassis, the natural aged leather maximizes vibration absorption. As a result, the turntable’s design limits distortion.
Available from October 16, the Elipson Chroma 400 RIAA BT Bleu de Chauffe turntable will retail at 999 euros. The curious can also discover this model on October 21 and 22, 2023 on the Elipson stand at the Paris Audio Video Show!
