"Compelling" Affordable Reference Bookshelf Speaker

The new DBR62 is ELAC's latest high value bookshelf speaker. Building on the iconic status of ELAC’s Debut Series, a new Reference line from designer Andrew Jones upgrades the performance. The Debut Reference brings significant acoustical and visual advancements. Designed to blend with traditional or contemporary styles, Debut Reference sounds as great as it looks.

"I demoed the $ 500/pair Debut Reference Bookshelf model at RMAF 2019 and found the sound to be compelling," notes Greg Kennelty, avsforum.com, September 10, 2019. "Love it when treble has 'snap' to it but is not bright or grainy. Translates well for pop music or classical. Arguably their ability to handle orchestral music is the greatest trick performed by Andrew Jones latest design."

The Debut Reference Series

The Debut Reference Series features begin with improved high frequency response, thanks to a newly developed waveguide combined with a more open grill design enhances upper high frequency response. At the same time, ELAC's new dual flared slot vent allows for lower noise and higher bass output for improved bass dynamics.

A new full perimeter brace that joins the top and the side panels significantly lessens cabinet vibrations, reducing cabinet coloration. ELAC's new cast basket for the woofer provides improved stiffness for both strengthening the front baffle and minimizing chassis resonances.

High Performance Drivers

The Debut DBR62 has a high-performance 6-1/2" woofer with an aramid fiber cone and a 1" cloth dome tweeter. Aramid fiber offers a superior strength-to-weight ratio and improved damping characteristics over conventional paper or plastic drivers. This added strength means arriving at designs that achieve a broader bandwidth with smoother response.

The shape of the aramid cone along with the new cast basket offers even greater stiffness and damping, far superior to polypropylene or paper. The added strength allows more flexibility in design to achieve a smoother, extended low-frequency response.

ELAC's silk-dome tweeter features a wide-roll surround and takes response up to 35,000 Hz for even more lifelike high frequencies. The new waveguide and grill improve directivity control to eliminate the diffraction modes inherent in traditional box enclosures.

New, Larger Cabinets

Thick MDF cabinets incorporate new specially designed internal bracing to add stiffness and strength. This bracing greatly reduces cabinet vibrations that cause unwanted coloration to the sound – because the only parts of a speaker that should be moving are the speaker drivers themselves.

You'll love the look of the Debut Reference Series speakers, too, whether you choose the White Baffle and Oak Cabinet Finish or the Black Baffle and Walnut Cabinet Finish.
