The Elac Uni-Fi range of speakers are designed by audio guru - Andrew Jones.
The Uni-Fi BS U5 bookshelf 3 way speakers deliver a clarity and punch like few others in their price point. Being a co-axial 3 Way speaker design brings a detail and clarity that few speakers at this price point can match. Although detailed - there is also a fantastic clean, fast bass from these slimline, award winning Elac speakers. Elac also make a compact, modern amplifier (Model : EA101EQ) as a matched companion.
A new chapter in coherent, concentric sound.
All three Uni-Fi loudspeakers—bookshelf, floorstanding and center-channel—employ a concentric driver. Because of its ideal time-domain characteristics, a concentric design—combining a tweeter and midrange diaphragm within a single voice coil—delivers the most coherent and accurate reproduction across the treble and midrange frequency spectrums. Because of their high cost, concentric drivers are traditionally used in only the most expensive speakers.
ELAC’s chief engineer Andrew Jones explains how Uni-Fi speakers build on a new foundation: “My goal with the Uni-Fi series was to create a line of speakers with technology and performance normally reserved for speakers costing significantly more. By going with a 3-way design and employing a new in-house developed concentric driver, I’ve achieved a sound that is more true to the music than similar priced products.”
Uni-Fi can be the basis of an outstanding two-channel system, or used to build an awe-inspiring multi-channel surround-sound system. Add an ELAC subwoofer to rock your world of music and movies like you never imagined.
Beyond the bookshelf.
Space constraints should never compromise great sound, and the Uni-Fi BS U5 is the perfect solution when floor space is at a premium, but demand for audiophile sound is not negotiable. Using the same outstanding driver and crossover components of its bigger brother, this compact, 3-way, bass-reflex monitor delivers the sonic signature of Uni-Fi in a smaller package.
