Elac Navis ARB-51 Powered Bookshelf Speakers (pair)

Regular price $2,999.00

Elac Powered Speakers

We say: The ELAC Navis active speakers have been around for at least a year and both the floor-standers and the bookshelf models have received high praise from many reviewers. 

These are analog baby!

ELAC’s superstar designer Andrew Jones chose to eschew having an integrated A/D and D/A section, or any sort of DSP - all the D's stand for Digital - which is a whole bunch! - Digital is what your Sonos or speaker competitors such as KEF’s LS50 or  Dynaudio Focus 20 all use. You get ok results with ok digital. If you want to move to the next level the secret sauce is using a really good DAC. 

The BluOS starter System

Consists of: Elac Navis + Bluesound Node 2i

We are having great results with the Bluesound Node 2i streamer as a hub for the Elac Navis. 

The Next Level Audiophile System

Consists of: Elac Navis + Bluesound Node 2i + Mytec Liberty Dac

Adding the Mytek Liberty Dac brings this system to jaw dropping territory

 

Elac Navis ARB-51; Inside

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.
