What is stereo?

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

EPI 100

 The Linear Sound of EPI
At first glance, it may seem like a contradiction in terms. How do you correlate a sound, something you perceive with your ears, with a line, something you perceive with your eyes.
The answer is surprisingly simple.
Linear Sound is the way a perfectly reproduced audio signal would look when plotted across a frequency response graph; a perfectly straight line, with no dips or peaks in the middle, and no unexpected drop-offs at the frequency extremes.
Linear Sound is accurate sound. And while no loudspeaker to date is perfect, the more linear it looks on a frequency response graph the more accurate it will sound your ears.
Thanks to many years of research and development by some very knowledgeable people, EPI loudspeakers are the most linear you'll hear.
Few loudspeakers have even relatively linear response that extends as low into the bass region, or as high into the treble as EPI loudspeakers.
And EPI loudspeakers dispers all those frequencies over a broader area of the typical listening room than any other conventional loudspeakers (at 15,000 Hz, EPI loudspeakers are still virtually linear 90 degrees of axis). Which means that unlike other loudspeakers , EPI speakers are entirely free of the "boxiness" that makes a loudspekers sound like a loudspeaker … instead of like music.
 "The Linear Sound of EPI" expresses our continuing dedication to creating perfectly accurate loudspeakers.

The EPI 100 has become the industry standard for bookshelf loudspeakers. Leading consumer and audiophile publications have consistently given the EPI 100 their top ratings. It does everything yoy want a loudspeaker to do, and it does it al. In a compact cabinet.
The EPI 100 features all the technological advances made by EPI.
You will hear "extended frequency response", which is the ability of a speaker to reproduce both the very lowest, and very highest, musical frequencies.
You will hear "extreme linearity", common to all EPI speakers. Music doesn't come out of the EPI 100 sounding like it's coming out of a box. There is virtually no exaggeration, or coloration of the signal fed into the speakers.
You will hear excellent "dispersion", over 1180 degrees, made possible by EPI's unique one-inch linear air-spring tweeter. No matter where you sit in your room to listen to the EPI 100, you will enjoy a sharply-defined stereo effect.
And, unlike nearly every other speaker, you can listen for hours to the EPI 100 without suffering listening fatigue. The reason is EPI's "minimum distortion" - both harmonic and intermodulation.
Remarkably, the EPI 100 gives you so much, without costing so much.
