Introduction – what is the Heritage XLS 15?
The Elipson Heritage XLS 15 (hereafter ‘XLS 15’) is a three way standmount speaker (I mean, notionally, there’s a bookshelf somewhere in the world that could handle them too but we’ll stick at ‘standmount’ for now). Even a cursory glance at the pictures should confirm that this is a rather different proposition to what normally passes for a ‘standmount’ speaker in 2021. I don’t generally stick an image in the intro section but – just so we can be in no doubt what we have here – below is a photo of the Elipson with a PMC twenty5 21i for scale.
