Space Constraints Are No Problem With ELAC Uni-Fi BS U5: Slim Bookshelf Loudspeaker Features Concentric Drivers, Refined Cabinets, Small Footprint, Matte-Satin Finish, Remarkable Sound

Distinguished with an attractively thin profile, refined rounded cabinets, and hand-painted matte-satin finishes, the ELAC Uni-Fi BS U5 Slim bookshelf loudspeaker laughs at the sonic compromises often wrought by space constraints. Loaded with the same groundbreaking driver and crossover components used in its bigger brother, Uni-Fi FS U5 Slim, this Andrew Jones-designed compact monitor provides remarkable audiophile sound while fitting in places off-limits to other bookshelf and nearly all tower models. The high-value Uni-Fi BS U5 Slim also makes for an outstanding surround-sound speaker. Anchored by an in-house-developed concentric driver – a trait uncommon in models in this price range – Uni-Fi BS U5 Slim plays with stellar precision, coherency, and responsiveness. Your music will sound more natural, smooth, fluid, and lifelike. In Uni-Fi BS U5 Slim, a one-inch soft-dome tweeter and rigid, four-inch aluminum midrange cone account for excellent directivity, power handling, and dynamics. A 5.25-inch woofer delivers taut bass, while top-tier components reside in a crossover that lends to seamless, smooth integration between lows and highs. Internally braced cabinets add stiffness and reduce resonance, while magnetically attached grilles give you the option of either seeing or concealing the drivers. Our 100% Money-Back Guarantee takes care of the rest. ELAC and Andrew Jones have done it again.

Usually Only Found in Costlier Designs: Custom-Made Concentric Driver
Just like they do in the larger Uni-Fi FS U5 Slim, in Uni-Fi BS U5 Slim, the delicacy of a one-inch soft-dome tweeter and harmonic accuracy of a rigid four-inch aluminum midrange cone come together in a sonic symphony. Positioning the tweeter concentrically within the midrange voice coil achieves a uniform directivity pattern, for flat frequency response and formidable power handling, along with enhanced imaging for both on- and off-axis listening positions.

Stellar Frequency Response Via Three-Way Design and 5.25-Inch Woofer
ELAC realizes a three-way speaker offers many advantages. In assigning dedicated drivers to high, mid- and bass frequencies, each is optimized for the frequency range for which its design and material composition is best suited. A three-way speaker complement also allows for a more straightforward crossover and cabinet design, eliminating costly solutions. By using aluminum for the woofer, resonances that affect the linearity of common paper cones are placed beyond the driver's operating frequency range. An extended-size magnet with vented pole piece increases power handling for accurate, clean, and powerful reproduction of bass frequencies.

Differences Between Uni-Fi and Uni-Fi Slim: Taller Enclosures, Refined Cabinets, Luxury Finishes
Uni-Fi Slim enclosures are narrower, taller, and deeper than the original Uni-Fi Series, the latter engineered for the long run with thick MDF outer walls. Yet each maintains the same internal volume, resulting in sonic characteristics indistinguishable from the originals. The cabinets incorporate specially designed internal bracing to add stiffness and strength to the cabinet’s outer walls. This bracing greatly reduces cabinet vibration, which causes unwanted coloration to the sound. ELAC believes the only parts of a speaker that should be moving are the speaker drivers. The other difference that distinguishes Uni-Fi Slim is the elegant matte-satin paint finish of the outer cabinets. Instead of being wrapped in black brushed vinyl like the original Uni-Fi, Uni-Fi Slim upgrades the appearance and feel with a durable surface that's as elegant as it is durable.
