German manufacturer ELAC has announced the launch of the Uni-Fi Reference line of home audio speakers. The new line builds on the Uni-Fi 2.0 series and incorporates a variety of performance and cosmetic improvements. The range consists of three 3-way concentric designs, the UBR62 bookshelf speaker ($999.98 per pair), UCR52 center ($599.98 each) and UFR52 floorstander ($999.98 each). All models are available in black or white.
“This new line removes the price limitations of the Uni-Fi 2.0 series along with the technical barriers associated with that price point. The Uni-Fi Reference series offers significant performance improvements such as cast chassis for both the concentric and bass drivers, newly developed bass and concentric drivers, enhanced bracing, improved crossover design, along with luxury cosmetics” said James Krodel, senior vice president sales, ELAC.
The company has incorporated a newly-developed 4-inch concentric driver with a ‘cast chassis’ as well as a tweeter which promises to enhance low and high frequency extension for better blending with the midrange. A new midrange driver also promotes better excursion and control. New 5.25-inch and 6.5-inch aluminum woofers with cast chassis designs improve low-end reproduction. According to ELAC, the single piece compound curvature cones improve linearity and low frequency response compared to earlier Uni-Fi bookshelf models.
The Reference line includes a crossover enhanced for linearity and driver integration performance combined with 6-ohm impedance for AV receiver compatibility. Perimeter bracing reduces cabinet vibrations and colorations while front firing ports allow for more placement options, including in-cabinet or close to walls.
