Elac B6 sounds good
Okay, I've been listening to a pair of B6's since they arrived on Oct 16 and they sound really good. They are clear, detailed and lacking in any kind of irritation. Vocals sound great whether female or male. I tend to listen to a lot of jazz, but also well recorded rock and blues. For the first three days, I listened to the Elacs by themselves and the bass was nice and solid, without a hint of boom; that could be due to the placement of the speakers five feet from any walls. The last two days, I integrated an SVS subwoofer that was unable to be integrated well with any previous speakers. The combo worked quite well. The sound of instruments and voices appear free of the location of the speakers; I guess that's called soundstaging and imaging, but those descriptions always sound pompous to me. The speakers simply sound right to me and the low price is just an added bonus. I'm happy!
