Back for an encore

The Acute CD player is reborn. When designing the new EAR Acute Classic, Audio Designer Tim de Paravicini took inspiration from the original EAR Acute. Building on its virtues, his all-new design was built from the ground up to provide an improved listening experience. An elegant design and EAR’s extensive knowledge, amassed over a thirty-year history, has culminated in the Acute Classic.

The new classic

With sleek modern styling and more than a nod to classic quality, the EAR Acute Classic is built to last. Its details are lavished by a hand-polished mirror chrome finish, forming the basis of a timeless design. Its aesthetic is married to leading digital and analogue technology, creating a visual and audible feast for the senses.

The display and power light both emit a luxurious warm hue, providing subtle cues to the glowing valves within. The large volume knob is also a statement of the product’s analogue nature, emphasising the simplicity of interaction. This is honoured by the Acute’s interface, which makes it even more intuitive to experience your digital media.
