    Great information, thanks. I'm on the fence re: buying this speaker. My only concern is whether my NAD C700 hybrid streaming amp at 80 Watts per channel is enough to bring the woofers to life at low to moderate sound levels. The unity UB 52 is also on my short list. Do you think the UB 52 would be a better fit with the NAD C700? I hope you have time for an answer. Thanks in advance.

    Hi, just watched your review of this speaker. If you have any contacts with Kali, it would be great to see a review of Kali In8v2 studio monitor. They are similiar to these Elac's but with 3 amps built into the speaker plus they have unbalanced RCA -10db allowing easy connection to home av equipment. I enjoy your channel. Thank you.

    These speakers are great! I have the UBR 62 and they actually smoke my Klipsch rp6000f towers in every category except bass. To be fair, I'm in a small 1 bedroom apt that might be too small for the Klipsch. The soundstage, imaging, and clarity are so nice. They are also way less fatiguing than my Klipsch…But once again the room is too small for the towers. I will eventually get a subwoofer for just some rumbling during movies though. I likey!

    One of AJs worst projects. Upper mids and treble is harsh even though measurements show everything is shelved down from 1.5khz to 20khz, it has a weird timbre and just dont sound right. Point source speakers do not sound like that. The DBR62 is just a better sounding speaker and Elac should just stick to conventional designs (although AJ is no more there).

    I just "received" a Onkyo TX-NR6100 home theatre receiver for Christmas. Would the Elac Uni-Fi Reference work well with it? I'm asking because I know they like more juice and I'm not super knowledgeable about amp and speaker pairing. I'm looking for a good speaker that is good with music and movies.

    They look beautiful. I record music and I am looking for a nice set of speakers. 1100 for the pair wow. I need to know if this will work. To bad they aren’t powered at this price.

    I hate the 2 colours trend, they should have made it black only and a brown one separatly, they all do 2 tone speakers nowadays

    For $1200 you don’t even get real wood veneer, just vinyl? What’s the baffle made of, mdf? Plastic?

    Looks like B&W and similar higher priced speakers now have dangerous competition, yes? I'm guessing these are still about half the price of similar B&W speakers but have almost the same sound. Any thoughts out there? Thank you for the great review! – (happy dbr62 reference owner). Also own B&W's.
