Build Quality, Sound, and Looks Converge in the ELAC Debut Reference DBR62 Bookshelf Loudspeaker: Andrew Jones Design Features New Waveguide, Woofer, Bracing, and More

The ELAC Debut Reference DBR62 bookshelf speaker has no small aims. It sets out to provide audio fidelity (and stylish looks) that will change the way you think about hearing music in your home, all for a cost often associated with mass-market models anonymously assembled with cheap off-the-shelf parts. The lofty goals owe to Debut Reference DBR62's inspired pedigree, with its genesis originating with ELAC's original Debut Series. Engineer Andrew Jones was thrilled with the groundbreaking line. And rightly so. After all, he designed it from top to bottom, and it redefined affordable high-end performance for thousands of listeners. Yet Jones always lamented the aesthetics got shortchanged. No more. With Debut Reference Series, Jones and company strike an enviable balance between outstanding build, sonics, and looks. But appearances aren't the only upgrade.

Internally and externally, Debut Reference DBR62 goes all out to separate itself from its crowded class. A new waveguide and open-grill design improve high-frequency response. A dual flared slot port increases bass output and dynamics. A new, 6.5-inch cast chassis woofer – loaded with oversized ceramic magnets for powerful bass; aramid fiber cones for control; a woven fiber spider for excellent linearity and stability; low carbon-steel top and bottom plates for high magnetic conductivity; and a butyl rubber surround for inherent damping – minimizes resonances and supplies robust, full, dynamic extension. New, full-perimeter bracing joins the top and side panels all the while lessening cabinet colorations. Jones' one-inch cloth dome tweeter sings. In sum, quite a debut by any name, Reference or otherwise.

Boasting 86db sensitivity and a 44Hz-35kHz frequency response, the two-way bass reflex design also has a CARB2-rated MDF cabinet, five-way metal binding posts, and a magnetic fabric grille. And the 18-pound, 14.13 x 8.18 x 10.82-inch (HWD) Debut Reference DBR62 easily fits in most spaces. Most importantly, it will bring alluring levels of emotionalism, clarity, and insight to everything you play no matter the source.
