ELAC UB5 - Uni-Fi Series 5.25" Concentric 3-Way Bookshelf Speaker, Pair, by Andrew Jones
Now at True Audiophile.
Price is for a PAIR
When friend of True Audiophile, Andrew Jones went to ELAC and we hear these new inexpensive speakers we were ready. The reviews of Andrew's new efforts were off the charts in their enthusiasm. Its almost insane. We normally don't carry anything at this price point but these speakers demand to be in the hands of people who love music even if their budget isn't audiophile friendly. We also have some started bundle with these speakers so you can get an entire system that will shock your friends without denting your wallet. --TA
This is the top-of-the-line for bookshelf speakers in the new series. A step up from the B6 in terms of resolution and speed with a captivating midrange that just crushes others speakers 2x its cost.
After weeks of testing the results are just like below. Astonishing for what it does for a system at it's price. It gets a BEST in CLASS award -- TA

Beyond the bookshelf. The latest and finest rendition of a bookshelf from audio price pioneer Andrew Jones.
Space constraints should never compromise great sound, and the Uni-Fi UB5 is the perfect solution when floor space is at a premium, but demand for audiophile sound is not negotiable. Using the same outstanding driver and crossover components of its bigger brother, this compact, 3-way, bass-reflex monitor delivers the sonic signature of Uni-Fi in a smaller package.
