Now at True Audiophile.
Price is for 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
"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.
Debut 2.0™ Series by Andrew Jones.
Everything ELAC does is different.
Few speakers have garnered such critical acclaim as the original Debut Series by ELAC. They established a new value proposition, with build quality and performance never before attainable at such an affordable price. Debut “changed the game,” and has now changed it again with the Debut 2.0 Series—proof that ELAC can’t leave well enough alone. Redesigned from the ground up, these speakers sound even more remarkable than the ones that sparked the revolution in affordable high-end sound
DEBUT 2.0 SERIES FEATURES
All-New Design—All-New Debut! Everything about Debut 2.0 has been improved, including completely redesigned custom drivers that deliver greater accuracy, and robust cabinets for even higher resolution and freedom from resonances.
New Tweeter with Wide-Dispersion Waveguide A new silk-dome tweeter features a wide-roll surround and takes response up to 35,000 Hz for even more lifelike high frequencies. The waveguide improves directivity control and eliminates the diffraction modes inherent in traditional box enclosures.
New Woven Aramid-Fiber WoofersThe revised shape of the aramid cones offers even greater stiffness and damping, far superior to polypropylene or paper. The added strength allows more flexibility in design to achieve a smoother, extended low-frequency response.
New, Larger Cabinets Thick MDF cabinets with a luxurious black ash vinyl finish are larger, and incorporate specially designed internal bracing to add stiffness and strength. This bracing greatly reduces cabinet vibrations that cause unwanted coloration to the sound. Because the only parts of a speaker that should be moving are the speaker drivers themselves.
