ELAC Debut series speakers available in Australia

pretty exceptional price point for such a high-quality speaker

Andrew Jones may not be a household name, but in the audio and speaker market he’s certainly renowned for his design and engineering which he’s now brought to the ELAC brand with the “Debut” series of speakers now available in Australia.

When you put quality brands and quality engineers and or designers together you’d normally push the price right up, which is why I was stunned to find the entry-level ELAC speakers hitting Australia at $499 for the pair.

Distributed here through Synergy Audio Visual the ELAC Debut series offer a refined yet elegant and almost understated design with a solid sound performance.

Here’s how Andrew Jones describes them : “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”

Philip Sawyer, Managing Director of Synergy Audio Visual here in Sydney says “We are excited to be bringing the ELAC Debut range to Australia – it will challenge consumers expectations about affordable loudspeakers forever. With a distinct look, unparalleled performance that rivals speakers which cost thousands of dollars more, high-end audio is no longer just for the audiophiles”

The speakers are made from a “lightweight, weather-resistant aramid fibre” and come in just one colour which should suit most Hi-Fi systems I’d think.
