elysia xpressor 500 meteorStudio processor manufacturer elysia has announced a limited edition version of its xpressor 500 compressor – the xpressor 500 meteor.

The 500 Series rackmount xpressor 500 meteor retains the sonic profile of the standard unit, but boasts a unique appearance reminiscent of metallic meteorites found in the natural science museums all over the world. The 3D-structured surface of the special aluminium involved in making the xpressor 500 meteor live up to its name was never meant to be used for front panels of high-grade audio equipment, not least that its pleasing patterns are actually the result of gigantic buzz saws used to cut the massive blocks into big slices. While difficult to work with, elysia has managed to create a smooth, anodized panel after many experiments producing details reflecting in changing light. Labelling has been burned into the highly-structured aluminium with a special MOPA laser.

‘We are very happy that we could tame this tough material and finally turn it into high-grade faceplates,’ says elysia co-founder Dominik Klassen. ‘It has certainly been a lot of effort, but the result is simply breathtaking.’

The xpressor 500 meteor will be strictly limited to 100 modules worldwide, and will be available from select elysia dealers in November 2018.
