ELAC UniFi UF5 Floorstanding Speaker

When doing some research for my buddy, I saw that it looks like Amazon is having a blowout on ELAC Uni-fi UF5 Floorstanding Speakers:

Amazon is $332.49/each, $665/pair.

Whereas other sites like Crutchfield and BB have them for $580/each, $1160/pair. Honestly, that's cheap enough to make me want to buy a set and I don't even remotely have a need for them.



I haven't used these myself but I did order the bookshelves a few years back, but they had a cosmetic issue so I sent them back and just took a refund.

I will say the concentric design yields a better soundstage, a more 3-D soundstage at least to me, than other designs like an MT or MTM assuming the crossover is implemented correctly. That's something that just can't be replicated with a standard MTM or MT design. Soundstage is a huge factor for me. With most AVRs you can correct for tonality easily via the auto-eq but you can't fix polar response issues at the crossover caused by the non-coincidental mounting. And that's the big advantage coincident mid/tweeter designs like the ELAC offer.

I pulled up some reviews and all are very positive, as expected. This guy's reviews are always excellent: https://parttimeaudiophile.com/2017/...ding-speakers/

If any of you guys are looking for a nice set of speakers for home audio use I'd say jump on these at this price.

Looks like the price is still there. I figured by now they'd have bumped it back up. I'm half-tempted to order these to do a review on. Anyone here have any first-hand experience they'd like to share or link to?

I heard them at Cedia a couple of years ago and thought they were pretty good especially for the price.


By the way, Medley Musings goes to some Chinese website.

Interesting. I'm not seeing that on my end. But doesn't matter. I let the site go about a year or so ago for personal reasons. I'm working on a different site but plan to have a repository of the old data for people to peruse there as well. I do need to update my sig, though. So thanks for the reminder!

I believe you were one of the only sites that had measurements on the Tectonic BMR that Dennis Murphy is now using.

I probably was. I got them (the specific ones I tested) before anyone even started selling them in the states, I believe.
