Elac Navis ARF-51 Powered Floorstanding Speakers
Designed by Andrew Jones to everything you wanted in a powered speaker, but also to offer an upgrade path.
ELAC’s new Navis Series answers every minimalist audiophile’s dream of a no-compromise powered speaker driven by best-in-class amplifiers that are truly deserving of the name “high end.” While most powered speakers rely on Class D digital designs, ELAC engineers build in 300 watts of pure analog amplification— for maximum power and exceptional sound.
"For four pennies under six grand, I think the ARF-51s are a screaming bargain, especially when you consider that each speaker has built-in amplifiers with 300W total output"
"Per Joni Mitchell, will I know what I’ve had when it’s gone -- when the time comes to send the ARF-51s back to their rightful owners? I won’t let that happen. I’m buying the review samples. You’ve just met my new reference speakers"
