Good Points
Perfect Midrange sound.
High Quality.
Good for Home Cinemas.
Relatively Cheap.

Bad Points
Low bass output.
Only comes in Brown color.
EPOS doesn't have a center speaker yet (If you wish to match all speakers).

General Comments
The Epos ELS3 received a 5 Star from HiFi choice UK magazine compared to the more expensive and big B&W 602-S3.

This supprised me in the beggining because the 602's are bigger speakers and have a very good reputation.

However EPOS is known for high fidelity quality and thats what they had in mind when they produced the ELS3.

The speakers are amazing for their size. They produce perfect Midrange and good bass. however you will need a subwoofer to get the full bass effect.

I use them as surround and back surround speakers allong with a pair of Epos ES11 for main and an Energy Subwoofer. The output from the Pioneer VSX-811s is amazing with these speakers.

Choose your speakers based on your needs and be sure to match them between them as well as with the amp.

I've just read Stereophile's review and they loved them. Their center channel is out now and should go nicely with my P812 a/v. The center and the els3 both go for 299.99, hmmm may just use the pair for center?

Good point, The P812 is running my Maggies(Front) just fine and they are power hungry. Will keep it in the 4-8 ohm range. Thx.

In reference to the 'bad' points, I believe the ELS-3s now come in 3 colors of vinyl wrap: light and dark cherry, and black ash. In regard to using a pair as a center channel, I would suggest looking at the Ohm load going to your amplifier. If you use the ELS-3s as your front Left-Right, this will give a 4-Ohm load. If you wire a pair in series, you will present an 8-Ohm load to the centre (4+4=8). Wire the pair in parallel, and the centre has a 2-Ohm load (4/2=2). It might be best to run the single centre channel speaker and retain a 4-Ohm load across the front three channels.
