ELAC Adante Series

After turning the audiophile world on its collective ear with the remarkable Debut and Uni-Fi Series loudspeakers, ELAC undertook the mission of creating one of their most ambitious speakers to date. About it, ELAC’s chief engineer Andrew Jones says, “With Adante, what we’re trying to do is bring excellent value to a new price point.”

Adante will surely redefine your concept of what it is possible for an affordable loudspeaker to achieve. Adante’s advanced design starts with a precision built cabinet that features Interport-Coupled Cavity bass loading to exploit the highest performance from new active and passive bass drive units. The inherent superiority of this design solution delivers some of the most authoritative, realistic bass around. Complementing Adante’s custom low frequency drivers is the all new concentric midrange/tweeter, a natural sound wonder engineered expressly for the Adante series. To make sure they look as good as they sound, each Adante cabinet features a furniture grade finish in a choice of gloss White, gloss Black or genuine satin Walnut veneer. The face of each cabinet is an elegant, bonded Aluminium front baffle for maximum rigidity, contoured to incorporate waveguides that ensure optimum dispersion from each driver.

Dynamic Performance - Daring Design

The ultimate Adante is a bold loudspeaker that breaks through boundaries and challenges the limitations of traditional designs. Engineered and built to quality standards that exceed every expectation, the ELAC AF-61 floorstander delivers performance that will satisfy the most demanding audiophile. It is a loudspeaker of substance for uncompromising listeners searching for the loudspeaker that does it all, at a price as satisfying as its sound.

All New Concentric Midrange/Tweeter

ELAC’s proprietary concentric drive unit technology has been taken to new levels of performance with a brand new design that delivers astounding point source accuracy, linearity, power handling, speed and articulation on virtually all types of music. The large, 5.25 inch diameter midrange cone, made of pure Aluminium for maximum rigidity with lowest coloration, features a revised profile and generous 2 inch voice coil that results in greater output level and higher sensitivity than smaller concentric designs. The larger 2 inch voice coil also provides more room for a newly engineered tweeter to be situated in the centre. This soft dome design uses new fabric material and employs a wide surround that results in improved lower treble output, lower resonant and crossover frequencies. Additionally, the whole concentric drive unit chassis is mechanically isolated from the other drive units and the Adante cabinet itself with anti vibration mountings that eliminate the transmission of vibration throughout the loudspeaker.

Two Amazing Bass Drive Units That Work Together

Fundamental to ELAC Adante’s superior performance are two new bass drive units that deliver extraordinary low frequency performance far superior to less complex drive units  and cabinet solutions. Engineered specifically to work in concert with the elaborate Interport-Coupled Cavity cabinet design, the first bass drive unit is a 6.5 inch active drive unit with wideband frequency response. It features an Aluminium cone and cast basket assembly with a substantial magnet and voice coil. The Aluminium cone is fast, stiff and low in distortion artefacts that otherwise compromise bass realism. Mounted inside the complex cabinet structure, it remains invisible to the eye but its presence is readily apparent to the ear.

Partnering with the active drive unit is a lightweight 8 inch passive radiator. Front firing, it is mounted to the bonded Aluminium front baffle of the speaker cabinet and features a stiff Aluminium diaphragm and cast basket assembly. Its light weight makes this passive radiator faster and less prone to distortion artefacts than active drive units of similar diameter, so it moves air more quickly, with minimal coloration.

Together, this active/passive combination can handle all the power it takes to deliver crushing low-frequency crescendos with the dynamic realism of a live performance.

Four Binding Posts For Added Options

Each Adante model is equipped with a dual set of binding posts. A supplied link allows use of a single pair of loudspeaker cables and only two posts, while dual posts allow the option of bi-wiring with a single amplifier, or choosing bi-amplification with the use of two amplifiers, one for the concentric midrange/tweeter and the other for low frequency drive units.
