Product Description

Andrew Jones new raved about ELAC UF51 3-way, bass-reflex floor standing speakers 

Now at True Audiophile.

Price is for ONE speaker; pair is x2

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

"Best speakers under $1,000. The Elac Uni-Fi UF5 sounds twice as good as speakers that cost twice as much and it's crazy value for money." -- Cnet

"In sonics, the pint-sized B5 would be a tough act to follow under most circumstances, but the F5 still manages to steal the show. It takes the strengths of the B5—a warm, relaxed, and responsive midrange, surprising bass extension and tunefulness, a lack of cabinet and port colorations, and a strong sense of musical truth, then significantly builds on them. In sonic criteria like tonality, micro- and macro-dynamics, and transient speed, the B5 and F5 have got the essentials down pat." Absolute Sound Magazine. Full Review.

"You can score a pair of these ELACs for a hair under $1,000 US, and let me tell you, this is a hell of a deal. Look past the somewhat pedestrian appearance of these guys (the drivers do look cool, though), you will be in for a sonic feast of the highest order. We’re talking horn-o’-plenty here, so listen up...when the thought of about any pair of speakers topping $10,000 seemed utterly ludicrous. Now that manufacturers offer up sophisticated speaker systems in excess of $250,000, one starts to really appreciate the value provided by the ELAC UF5s. Fortunately for folks like me who live within the confines of a real-world budget, audio technology has both advanced and trickled down to the point that the level of quality in sound reproduction available from these ELACs would have been unthinkable just 20 years ago, particularly at $1000 price point...In the end, I fully believe that Andrew Jones/ELAC made the right choice by putting the money where it matters: into the sound.

Tower of power.

Like a precision instrument, Uni-Fi’s flagship floorstander offers advanced technology with its concentric midrange/high-frequency transducer and proprietary aluminum-cone drivers. These support a 3-way, bass-reflex design that delivers a sound unequalled at their price point. Add a subwoofer to create a very serious two-channel system, or use it as the heart of a no-compromise surround set up.
