Finally decided to upgrade and update my home theater system, I researched and used crutchfield advisor for the sound signature I wanted. I have 4 book shelf elac speakers with 2 front surround atmos speakers, powering these I have a denon avr s960h, I am using a 10 inch powered sub from polk. The most important thing for me was the speakers were neutral and didn't influence the sound, these speakers are just amazing, my music taste ranges from heavy metal to classical the sound reproduction is just incredible, the first 4k movie I watched was The Shawshank Redemption then Ford V Ferrari, I wish I could more accurately describe the depth of the sound stage and reproduction better than what I have written but suffice it to say I am absolutely impressed by the quality and build of these speakers. While the walnut option was a bit more pricey I was cognizant of this and see it as an investment, I really like the look of the walnut grain which matches the polk subwoofer.
Achetées en modèle noyer (walnut), enceintes bibliothèques sobres et classiques, bien finies qui ne vous "embarquera" pas sur son design mais est-ce le plus important? Elles sont néanmoins très bien finies. Ici, on se "soigne" les oreilles avec une scène sonore digne d'enceintes d'un prix beaucoup plus élevé. Associées à un ampli "couteau suisse" Denon ceol RCD-N11, c'est presque le nirvana dans cette gamme de prix, enceintes achetées à 300 euros. Elles sont encore en rodage mais...quelle claque. Tout est bien restitué : aigu, médium, basses même si je restreints le volume dans l'immédiat. Vous pouvez y associer un caisson de basses pour compléter la scène sonore sur les infras mais ce n'est pas forcément nécessaire. Merci monsieur Vibrasonique, vous m'avez convaincu de faire cet achat.+++++
If you are like me, chances are that by now you've watched every single review on the TUBE that has everything to do and say about these speakers. After watching and reading all reviews I could find on the internet I decided to purchase these speakers (went with Walnut) as an upgrade to a pair of Sony SSCS5 that I had purchased from Amazon several months ago. As a side note, my system consists of a Crown amplifier paired to an Emotiva pre-amp and a Schiit equalizer. I run a topping DAC for my streaming as well as my CD playing.
I immediately hooked up these Elacs to my external speaker selector and proceeded to A/B the Sonys vs the Elacs. I played some of my favorite songs/bands both via CD and streaming. To my disillusionment these Elacs were not delivering the performance I was expecting based on the dozens of reviews I had watched and listened to. I placed both speakers side by side, in exactly the same position I had place the Sony speakers.
The first thing I noticed was how narrow the sounds seemed to be when compared to the Sony's. The music dispersion was not at all as wide and far-reaching as the Sony's. The highs were lacking, just weak and somewhat muted. It was as if the tweeter was playing thru a wet towel. I decided to adjust the listening angle and also to eq the highs to see if I could improve upon what I was hearing, but it was fruitless. This was really shocking, I was dumbfounded. The Elacs were not even close in reproducing the high frequencies as efficiently as the Sony's. On the other hand, I observed that the Elacs had excellent mids sound reproduction. Both male and female voices were reproduced very detailed and were crystal clear. At this point I was thinking, well maybe they need to be broken in, so I'll wait up until I have put some mileage on them.
As far as the low notes, I just could not believe that the smaller bass in the Sonys were surpassing the sound coming from the Elacs. I kept adjusting my eq trying to find the deepness and fullness in sound that the Sony speakers reproduce, but again it was unproductive. It didn't matter how close or far I placed these speakers from the wall, any difference achieved was not good enough to match the low frequencies of the Sony's. Once again I though, these speakers just need to be played for several hours and then they will be able to perform and shine as they should, at least according to the reviews. My comparisons/tests were done at relatively low to medium volume levels. From time to time I might play a song or two at higher levels than usual but it is not my norm.
In addition to the above A/B test, I also compared the Elacs to my vintage JBL s38 which are at least over 20 years old. The results were the same; the Elacs never stood a chance.
Today (4/18/21), I've decided to sell these speakers. After two months and many hours of music playing I haven't found any reason to consider these speakers to be an upgrade to my Sony SSCS5 or my JBLs. Don't take me wrong, these Elacs are good looking, especially in walnut. One may compare them to the trophy wife that has all the beauty; that is until she opens her mouth to speak. I feel the same way with these speakers, all physical beauty but heartless when they "talk" to me. When it comes to sound, these speakers do not trigger any pleasure in me, do not make me feel exited, do not bring any joy. Simply, these Elacs Debut 2.0 B6.2 are not for me.
If you are in the market for speakers and perhaps considering these Elacs, you may want to watch GR Research on the Tube. On this channel you'll find research and feedback done on both the Elacs and the Sonnys. On this channel you'll get professional information and assessments related to the aforementioned. Gather your facts, listen to both speakers/brands if you have the chance to do so and then you'll be able to make an educated decision. Please note that I'm not affiliated in any way, shape or form to GR Research. I'm just a grateful viewer with the content and feedback that is offered on this channel.
I purchased both the Sony and Elac with my own money, no funny business here. This is my humble opinion and nothing else. Feel free to take it for what it is worth. I've reached this conclusion after listening to the Elacs for many long hours and days, changing the speakers location and adjusting the sound via eq. All these efforts trying to find all the tributes most reviewers have talked about. Unfortunately I had no such blessing.
These speakers leave me almost speechless. I got my degree in, and worked for decades as, a recording engineer, so I know a wee bit about sound. When I needed to add a small system for our dining room, I wanted to get something small, simple, but good quality. I bought Cambridge Audio amps and transports (always loved that British sound) and Blue Jeans cables. That part was easy, but what about the speakers? I bought these Elac's almost as a joke. I did not think that you could get a nice set of bookshelf speakers for 300 bucks, and yet everyone was raving about them. I knew Andrew Jones knows his stuff, so I wanted to see for myself. Holy moly, these are amazing. Crystal clear sound stage. Immaculate imaging. And bass that my $1,500, 70 pound Klipschs can't even touch. From a little 6.5" driver. It's almost magic. These are now my favorite speakers in the house, even though I have speakers that cost many times what these cost. In fact, when I just visited my mother, I noticed that her speakers were dying, so I bought her a pair, too. I can't recommend these enough for the money. You DO need to be aware of one thing though: It is the old "weakest link in the chain" axiom, and how true it is. Hook these up to some mediocre home theatre amp, and the result might be "meh". Same with cables. You don't need to spend a fortune for your cables, but if you think using $20 speaker wires are going to do these justice, think again. I wanted to keep this within a small budget, so I chose Blue Jeans Canare speaker wires (~$100) and BJC interlinks between the CD player and the amp (~$50). Do some research and you can make these little speakers sound like a million bucks. I am so impressed, I am now looking at their bigger brothers for another system (No, not the $85k Elac Concentros - I wish).
I picked up a pair of Walnut 6.2 Elac Debut on black Friday, at a much-reduced sale price. I want to like these speakers much more than I should, the build quality is very good and they are solid chunks. After 100 hrs of break-in, I like the spkrs but I don't "love" the sound quality. The Elac's sound less dynamic than my JBL S38 bookshelves or my Fluances SX-6, I'm sure they will sell tons of these, I'll keep them for lighter use but they are not my go-to's as the sound is too clinical and muted for my taste. Sensitivity is average - they do sound better on my Onkyo amp than my Denon. The biggest area for improvement is the tweeter, the driver sounds more than decent. The tweeter could go up a few notches. My 30 yr old Boston Acoustic HD9's sounds a tad better than these, which says a lot for the BA's. Very good but not excellent, hence rated at 4/5.
At first I was impressed with these Elac Debut's. They had excellent bass for their size and good all around clarity. But after a few days, I noticed that they lacked any kind of punch in the range where snare drums tend to sit, and rock music lacked a lot on them. I have some smaller kitchen speakers to use as a comparison, and they were putting the Elacs to shame on anything with a strong snare. Granted they are designed to bring out that range, and lack in other areas, but they made it clear what I was missing in the Elacs.
But over the course of a couple weeks, the speakers really opened up and gained more upper-range punch. And the advantages of their even tone spectrum became more clear as well. Classical, jazz, electronic, ambient, rock - any kind of music, whether dense or sparse and spacious, all sound detailed and dynamic on these speakers. You really can't ask for more at this price reange.
Edited: Since I wrote my review I delved down into the woods of the options of my amplifier, and there were a lot of settings that had been optimized for my original small speakers. Adjusting these settings made the speakers sound amazing. Leaving my original review below incase other people find the same problems when swapping from small bookshelves to these larger ones. However now I hear both the mid range and bass perfectly.
My tiny but powerful front Mirage Nanostats speakers finally died and thought these speakers would be an upgrade in power. However, compared to my old Nanostats which I loved ,the bass is really heavy with these speakers. Doesn't help that they are filling up a small living room (with my last three working Nanos taking centre and back left & right) and the bass was overwhelming (powered by a Onkyo TR-N747) when I first plugged them in. It took a lot of tinkering with the amplifier settings to not have the bass just obliterate everything. Now they sound pretty good but I'm still going to get some speaker pads to remove an occasional tweeter trill when playing a record that naturally has a lot of bass. I fell in love with the clear, even Nanostat sound but perhaps they just made me used to very little bass in my music? Going to give them a week or so workout to decide if I'll keep them. Try them in a few different locations in the room.
They look and feel fantastic and the build quality is solid.
Great sounding speaker. I like the forward facing port, which means you can place it close to a wall. Exterior is plastic wood grain but not bad looking. I read the weight spec but was still surprised how heavy they were. I guess "bookshelf" is more of a size-class of speaker than anything else. Putting them on a bookshelf does not seem practical.
