Technology & philosophy
PE is back! WE AUDIO SYSTEMS produces the renowned Perpetuum Ebner (PE) record players again. The first model in 2014 was the PE 4040, a successor to the once legendary PE 2020. The high-end record players were carefully crafted by the master of principle of classic industrial design „form follows function“. The result is an ideal mix of sophisticated engineering and perfect ergonomics: finest wood and a tonearm-board finished with black piano lacquer, combined with a powerful motor from European OEM production. The innovative „Integrated Floating Board“ (IFB) – specifically designed for effective resonance absorption – and the top-of-the-line tonearms from own as well as OEM production are the most obvious features of the new classic PE analog high-end players. When it comes to music reproduction, the PE 4040 is certainly the best product ever developed under the PE brand. In addition, beginners as well as proud owners of large vinyl record collections will appreciate the availability of other sophisticated and excellently equipped models. After the PE 1010 and the PE 2525 – which also incorporate the „Integrated Floating Board“ – the firm launches this year the PE 1000 and the PE 800: two new very costeffective models ideally suited for beginners.
