There’s a lot of competition out there in the world of audio, but German brand Elac, which has been around for 90 years, has launched a brand new range dubbed "Elac Debut", thanks to the Elac team along with the Jones' efforts.
iTWire colleague Ray Shaw has already written about the Elac range late last month in his article entitled "ELAC German speaker quality at ‘Aldi-like’ prices", stating that "Elan Debut establishes a value proposition for bookshelf, floor standing, centre and surround sound, and Dolby Atmos add-on modules".
Ray also wrote that "The Debut speakers deliver incredibly accurate life-like sound from a compact enclosure. Made from lightweight, weather-resistant aramid fibre, each speaker is custom made to control sound dispersion and minimise vibrations, meaning complex movie and music soundtracks sound incredible."
Although Synergy Audio Visual is the distributor of Elac products in Australia, and distributes many other high-end AV products too, the products are generally sold through specialist audio visual and Hi-Fi stores that cater to clients who desire quality audio, rather than much less richer audio you get from products in big box stores or consumer electronics retailers, many of which can be at correspondingly vastly lower prices.
However, Elac wants to bring its products to a much wider audience, so even though Elac’s Debut speakers originated in Germany and are designed in Southern California by Jones, the Debut range of bookshelf and floor-standing speakers and subwoofers bring high-end audio to the mainstream market, at a very affordable price point.
Jones himself states: “ELAC Debut series delivers superior performance thanks to custom made key components, with no off-the-shelf parts. Unlike many more expensive speakers that mix parts-bin drivers, bare-bones crossovers and generic cabinets – every ELAC speaker is built from a clean-sheet design."
However, I now present to you an interview with Synergy Audio Visual’s NSW and ACT area manager, Jack Sarkissian, who took us through the range and cranked up an electrifying track for us at the end of the interview to give us just a taste of Elac’s larger floor-standing speakers and the type of audio they can deliver.
