85 YEARS IN THE MAKING
The ZELLATON membrane has been the benchmark for true-to-life music reproduction for more than 85 years. The complex three-layer membrane structure overcomes the disadvantages of ubiquitous and conventional speaker manufacturing. With ZELLATON, one acquires a loudspeaker of unparalleled speed and tonal beauty. Elements of musical color and touch are conveyed with profound realism.
Winner of multiple awards and accolades, a ZELLATON loudspeaker must be heard in order to appreciate its unique qualities. Only then, can one understand why it is referred to "The Stradivarius of Loudspeakers".

The ZELLATON membranes are individually manufactured by ZELLATON co-founder Manuel Podszus, involving a sophisticated and manual procedure, quite similar to ZELLATON methods of manufacturing from the past.
ZELLATON PLURAL LOUDSPEAKER - 1950's
The special ZELLATON hard foam membrane is characterized by piston-like vibrations far into the inaudible range, and thus it holographically conveys the aura of the music in three dimensions – this for the first time enables the reproduction of also the high frequency range. More than 30 years of development have gone into the current version of ZELLATON high frequency extension and range.
The manufacturing process itself is comparable with the production of a highest quality musical instrument and with the lengthy procedure of tuning the instrument perfectly.
All drivers from ZELLATON have a specially balanced membrane. In an extremely time-consuming procedure they are individually tuned in the speaker housing.
This kind of "fine adjustment" is probably unique worldwide.

Our multilayered configuration and the housing’s timeless design - as well as the dedicated materials - were selected in years of engineering work; all in our quest to provide ZELLATON drive units with optimal cabinet geometry. The manufacture of the loudspeaker cabinet and the special multi-layer polyester coating, resemble that of a grand piano - but with the decisive difference that our lacquer has even greater depth and superior durability.
High efficiency and fundamentally low controlled bass reproduction are basically antipodes. All loudspeaker developers are confronted with this problem. At ZELLATON we have chosen a solution that overcomes the known disadvantages: A small, extremely fast bass that guarantees the best impulse response and, unlike large diaphragms, blends in perfectly with the music. Even bass runs of simultaneously playing instruments are reproduced precisely and true to detail as well as with extraordinary body. The housing is open at the rear and dampened with natural flow resistance, ensuring perfect music reproduction without compression.
The production of an excellent full-cone tweeter is the greatest challenge in loudspeaker construction, which is why it is extremely rare on the market. The ZELLATON tweeter with hard foam cone works up to well over 40 kHz, allowing notes to linger with ease and elegance. All these factors contribute to extremely elaborate manual work, but ultimately yield a speaker enduring in both sound quality and value.
