Elac’s Debut in India - Getting to know the affordable audiophile-grade speakers series better
Ooberpad brings you premium-grade speakers from the celebrated German audio brand Elac’s Debut series. Designed in southern California by legendary speaker designer Andrew Jones, the Debut series consists of bookshelf, floor-standing, surround and subwoofers speakers to bring high-end audio performance to consumers at an affordable price point.
"ELAC Debut series delivers superior performance thanks to custom made key components, with no off-the-shelf parts," says speaker designer Jones. "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."
The Debut speakers aim to deliver an incredibly accurate, powerful and lifelike sound from a compact enclosure. Made from lightweight aramid fibre, each speaker driver in the series is custom-designed. This empowers control over sound dispersion, minimises vibrations and delivers incredible sound during movies and music playback.
The ELAC Debut series' powered subwoofers feature a unique BASH amplifier that is preferred by many audiophiles for its efficiency and tonal characteristics. Interestingly, some models of the ELAC Debut subwoofers can be easily controlled from any smartphone via Bluetooth on iOS and Android smart devices. The powerful AutoEQ app automatically adjusts the woofers' EQ to suit the room's acoustic characteristics for an enhanced bass response.
Let’s have a closer look at the Elac Debut series loudspeakers.
