ELAC’s first consumer audio product was the PW1 record player. ELAC continued to lead the burgeoning audio industry with innovative turntables and electronics. During the 1970s and 1980s, every serious music lover had a high-quality turntable, and the fortunate few owned an ELAC.
By 1984, ELAC began designing loudspeakers in conjunction with AXIOM Electroacoustic Speaker Specialists. One year later, ELAC’s newly developed 4Pi omnidirectional tweeter turned the listening world on its collective ear and launched ELAC into the company of the most elite speaker manufacturers.
ELAC and innovation go hand-in-hand, and in 1993, ELAC introduced the JET folded-ribbon tweeter. With an expanded frequency response up to 35 kHz, the JET tweeter has been continually refined and is featured today in home and automotive applications.
Today, ELAC offers a complete range of speakers, including active, wireless and custom-install models. ELAC has earned its reputation—from the beginning—with advanced technology, uncompromised build quality and modern European style. And now, a whole new range of affordable speakers by renowned designer Andrew Jones brings ELAC within reach of dedicated music lovers on a budget.
