ELAC has announced the Uni-Fi Reference line of home speakers. This new line builds upon the success of the Uni-Fi 2.0 series and incorporates a variety of performance and cosmetic improvements.
“This new line removes the price limitations of the Uni-Fi 2.0 series along with the technical barriers associated with that price point,” says James Krodel, senior vice president sales, ELAC. “The Uni-Fi Reference series offers significant performance improvements such as cast chassis for both the concentric and bass drivers, newly developed bass and concentric drivers, enhanced bracing, and improved crossover design, along with luxury cosmetics.”
Some of the notable new features of the Uni-Fi Reference line-up include.
- Newly Developed 4-inch Concentric Driver with Cast Chassis: A wide-surround tweeter enhances its low and high frequency extension allowing for improved blending with the midrange. An entirely new midrange driver with large diameter voice coil, vented rear spider, and new neodymium magnet allows for better excursion and control of midrange frequencies. A new cast chassis was designed to minimize reflections back to the cone, resulting in better clarity.
- Newly developed 5.25-inch and 6.5-inch Aluminum Woofers with Cast Chassis: Improving low-end reproduction, this newly developed bass driver features a single-piece compound curvature aluminum cone with a large rear-vented magnet, delivering improved linearity and better low frequency response of any previous Uni-Fi bookshelf speaker.
- Sophisticated 3-way Crossover: An entirely new design improves response linearity, improves driver integration, and delivers a true 6-ohm nominal impedance for compatibility with virtually all AV receivers.
- Full Perimeter Bracing: Reducing the speaker cabinets influence on audio quality the Uni-Fi Reference line implements full perimeter bracing, significantly reducing cabinet vibration and cabinet coloration.
- Front Firing Ports: Placing the vents on the front of the bookshelf and center speakers allows for greater freedom of placement, even in restricted places like a cabinet or up close to a wall.
