Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Many at the 2017 LA Audio Show pick the New ELAC Adante AF-61 Speakers the Best Sounding at the Show!



I think if there is any issue, is that the Adante line is not really 'special'. These are properly designed, well built speakers that are priced to cover the costs of the quality build. Being designed by Andrew Jone, most will automatically say the Adante line sounds better then speakers costing 3x as much.

The perceived issue for me is that at the price, the Adante's can be awesome, but really anything at this price range can be awesome, and the sound comes down to the design philosophy.

I think the Adante line will indeed sound good to awesome, but it will come down to preferred listening tastes.

Of course there is the public perception of Andrew Jones building price beating speakers. This will make them popular, and I think that is GREAT because the more the average audiophile WANTS a $5000 speaker, the better it is for ALL audiophiles.

Yay Adante! :)
