Elac Adante AF-61 – an ultra-high-end 3-way floor standing speaker from the iconic German audio brand. Designed by the legendary audio engineer Andrew Jones, the floorstander represents Elacs revolutionary approach in speaker design.
The floostander flaunts a newly designed interport-coupled-cavity cabinet enclosure. Essentially, the cabinet is actually multiple enclosures in one. It incorporates a 1″ soft dome tweeter concentrically mounted with a 5.25″ midrange aluminum cone driver fitted in its own isolated coupled cavity. The result is outstanding point-source accuracy, linearity, power handling, speed and articulation of the mid and high frequencies.
Additionally, it sports 3 x 6.5″ aluminum cone woofers internally mounted in the interport-coupled cavity and connected to the crossover for amplification along with 3 x optimally placed 8″ passive bass radiators which are visible on the front baffle. The result is a stunning and powerful bass output.
The Elac Adante AF-61 is housed in a robust cabinet draped in a premium furniture-grade gloss black finish to match any decor. The floorstanding speaker graciously sits on top of a high-quality plinth with feet for isolation from the floor and to minimize rattling.
You can use the AF-61 as a standalone stereo setup for your Vinyl collection or part of a multi-channel surround sound setup by pairing it with other speakers from the Elac Adante series. Brace yourself for a superior listening experience in your movies, music, TV shows, and gaming sessions.
The Elac Adante AF-61 features a newly designed interport-coupled cavity cabinet enclosure developed by Andrew Jones. Essentially, the cabinet is actually multiple enclosures in one. All the drivers have their own isolated space connected via a complex network of internal ports and passive radiators. This allows getting rid of external ports will produce noise and other distortion artefacts especially at high volumes. The result of this complicated engineering means a clean, distortion-free, natural, accurate, and powerful output never experienced before.
Two amazing woofers that work in unison
The Elac Adante AF-61 incorporates a truly revolutionary approach in speaker design. It features 3 x 6.5aluminium cone woofers internally mounted in the interport-coupled cavity and connected to the crossover for amplification. Right in front of the 6.5″ drivers are optimally placed 8″ passive bass radiators which are visible on the front baffle. The lightweight cones of the passive radiator are faster and less prone to distortion artefacts than active drivers of similar diameter, so it moves air more quickly, with minimal colouration. The result is a stunning and powerful bass output.
Proprietary concentric midrange/tweeter
The Elac Adante AF-61 features a 1″ soft dome tweeter concentrically mounted with 1 x 5.25″ midrange aluminium cone driver fitted in its own isolated coupled cavity. The whole concentric driver chassis is mechanically isolated from the other drivers in the cabinet with anti-vibration mountings that eliminate the transmission of vibration throughout the loudspeaker. The result is outstanding point-source accuracy, linearity, power handling, speed and articulation.
Audiophile-grade binding posts for versatile connectivity
The Elac Adante AF-61 is equipped with a dual set of binding posts. A supplied link allows the use of a single pair of speaker cables and only two posts, while dual posts allow the option of bi-wiring with a single amplifier, or choosing bi-amplification with the use of two amplifiers, one for the concentric midrange/tweeter and the other for low-frequency drivers.
Acoustically-matched with the Elac Adante Series
Timbre-matched with the Elac Adante Series, the floorstanding speaker can be either used as a standalone stereo system or part of a multi-channel setup for a seamless surround sound experience. Bring home Elac’s ultra-high-end sound clarity in your music, movies, TV shows and gaming sessions.
