I see the Ascend thread has been pretty quiet of late. That's probably a good indicator that everyone is too busy enjoying their Ascend speakers to post. I was just curious if anyone out there has by...

Are the Elac Uni-Fi UF5 the real deal at $1000 a pair? Really thinking about pulling the trigger on these floor standers for use in a dedicated two channel setup. Preferably with no sub woofer.

Not sure what brand or model I would buy, but I would probably audition at least a dozen different brands in my new treated theater room before making a decision, with price being no object.

I would not pay someone for just the specific placement of my speakers. If they are rear ported you definitely do not want the back of the speaker too close to a wall though, this would result in too...

You have made a valid point Russ. But I would much rather have the black ash or black oak type finishes that are used in SVS subs and speakers. That black vinyl looks so cheap on the Elac speaker.

That would probably give me the most speaker for my dollar. But there would be no 30 day audition period, that you get with Amazon and other internet direct companies. I would have to rely on reviews.

Best Floorstanding Speaker $1000

What floor standing speaker would you buy with a budget of $1000. It would be a music only system, with a sub maybe added down the road. Although, I would like to get away without using a subwoofer.

Warren Mi. But if I buy, I would be foolish not to get the "new" 206's off audiogon. They are almost 50% off retail price. I appreciate your offer!

The only receivers that provide true per channel wattage specs are two channel stereo receivers. Five channel or seven channel and so on, home theater receivers, wattage specs are very misleading.
