Designed in Melbourne
Back in 1958, at the age of only 24, Alex Encel set about building locally-made stereo systems for Australians. Over half a century has passed since Alex built his first pair of speakers by hand here in Melbourne, and now that tradition continues with a colourful range of bookshelf speakers: Gelati.
Gelati were tuned based on extensive listening tests here in Melbourne by the Encel team, and we’re thrilled with an overall balance that makes them musically dexterous across a number of genres. They confidently serve up sweet highs, decadent mids, and a low-end dripping with punch and authority. Gelati are packaged with a minimum of disposable materials and manuals.
A defining trait of the Encel brand is artistic collaboration, with Melbourne-based illustrator Alice Oehr designing the Gelati’s cardboard packaging. And of course, Gelati are manufactured with sturdy, durable materials like MDF and kevlar, meaning their gift of great music will continue for years down the line.
Alex founded the Encel brand with the aspiration of making beautiful music systems affordable. His evangelical yet egalitarian approach to audio endures in the brand today.
