ELAC is not new comer in providing bookshelf speakers. The company is already founded in 1920 in Germany and until now they have produced so many great line up products. One thing that I love from them is their original characteristics. They don’t give us any modern sleek design, they are more interested to provide us a bold and classical presence that sometimes looks so charming for us an audiophile. Design is not enough to judge it as the best and I really want see more detail about it. To make it easier for you to decide, here the full review about this furniture. So we hope you enjoy it.
The original Characteristic
The B6 is probably the largest bookshelf speaker in their entire line up series. I need to say that it’s really big and you have to provide more spaces as you want to place it. it is well equipped with two ways driver combined with 25mm cloth dome tweeter. You also could find 16.5 cm woofer with an extra firing power at low end sounds. The price is talking here and they put the best thing that you could find here. I really found an interesting part when I am testing it. I see that the speaker is able to extend its frequency wider. They claim that it is capable because of the fiber cones that give an extra stiffness that able to give more flexibility in achieving wider and smooth frequencies range. This thing is much superior to what I found most products.
There is no need to worry about the audio performance since the mount is big and looks powerful. There is nothing wrong with the performance; the balance on much music that I have played is much better, but sometimes I found some little problem on the bass on mid-range sounds. It doesn’t affects to the performance because it’s rarely happen and it’s unnoticeable unless if you are a critical listener. Playing oldies music from the Beatles gives a generously original quality and provided a breathable performance. This is what I expect for such an expensive audio gadget.
The overall performance is really overwhelming. They put their originality on both of design and performance and then they add few enchanting too make it suitable for this trend. There is plenty of details especially on older songs. The sounds are not trying to be over, but they rather keeping the originality of the song. The original version is always better without any enhancement on it. There are many of them are trying to some enhance on the audio, but sometimes it only makes it worst. You could depend on it if you are having many plans to play any classical or modern music on it.

Nice Finishing By Andrew Jones
I have been huge fan of Andrew Jones since the first time he is working with Pioneer. He is already working with that company for long time after he decided to join ELAC. I am really interested to see this one because it is personally designed by him. The idea of putting five way binding posts and removable front grills are really great. It is finishing by aluminum, but not entire of it because I could see some textured vinyl on the surface of MDF. If you checked on the people, you will see that there are many people impressed by it.
You could find few of local dealers of running a demo on it. You are able to make comparison of it before deciding to buy it. It would be hard to find it, but I still able to find some of them on my city. That is the first time I tried and I feel instantly fall in love on it. With the design from legendary designer and great performance, there is no way that you are not going to be interested on testing it.
