ELAC has announced the Solano line of premium home speakers, which, the company states, are “the perfect solution for the 2-channel enthusiast or the home theater connoisseur.”
Some of the notable new features of the Solano line-up include.
- JET 5 Tweeter: Delivering true high-definition sound, ELAC’s JET 5 tweeter has a fast response and wide dynamic range, offering minimal distortion, lots of headroom, and a wider frequency range than conventional dome tweeters.
- Aluminum Sandwich Woofers: Custom 6-inch aluminum cones are joined to paper cones utilizing a proprietary gluing process that results in a cone that is stiff, precise, linear, and lightweight. This unique driver delivers mid and bass frequencies that are clean, clear, and powerful.
- Cast Chassis: Cast chassis have been utilized for all drivers in the Solano series, minimizing reflections back to the cone.
- Dual Binding Posts: All three Solano series speakers are outfitted with two sets of heavy-duty binding posts allowing to bi-amp or bi-wire each loudspeaker. These binding posts ensure a secure connection to many types of cable and connectors.
- Premium Finishes: The Solano speakers come in either high-gloss black or white paint with the bookshelf and floorstanding models featuring lacquered cast aluminum bases.
- Downward firing ports: Downward Firing Ports allow for more flexible speaker placement and minimizes ventilation noise. The bass reflex port on the Solano series is directed to the floor, exiting the bottom of the speaker cabinet in a down-firing configuration.
All six models are available at the end of July at ELAC retailers nationwide.
