"The rare achievement of true audiophile quality at a low price. Speaker shoppers always want bargains – speakers that blow away the competition at a rock bottom price without sacrificing quality. The ELAC Debut B6 is that speaker. It's a stunning achievement."
—Steve Guttenberg, CNET, five-star rating
"The great thing about this speaker is that it covers its tracks well; anything you play through it fast becomes a musical event and not an exercise in analytical listening. This is a rare trick to pull off, even for a high-end speaker."
—Hi-Fi Choice, Recommended review
"$279.99? For the price? Are you kidding me? Who cares what they cost? Elac’s new Debut B6 loudspeaker is an extremely competent audiophile design that is more musical and concise than any other speaker I've heard that costs less than $1000/pair."

Andrew Jones-Designed Drivers Match Intricate Crossover, Spheroid Waveguide
Andrew Jones custom-designed both the tweeter and bass driver to deliver an exceptional audio experience that can't be delivered with typical off-the-shelf parts. A custom crossover with audio-grade components ensures smooth transition between drivers. In addition, a custom-designed tweeter waveguide with a deep spheroid profile improves directivity control and shields the tweeter wavefront from cabinet diffraction.
Aramid-Fiber Cones Add Strength and Smoothness
Woven aramid fiber offers a superior stiffness-to-weight ratio and damping over common polypropylene or paper cones. The added strength allows more flexibility in design to achieve a smoother, extended frequency response.
