Adante -AF-61 Floorstanders



Breakthrough Performance, Andrew Jones Design,
Unprecedented Value, Luxury Looks: ELAC Adante AF-61 Tower Loudspeakers
Play with Authority, Natural Sound, and Incredibly Realistic Bass

Conceived from the ground-up by designer extraordinaire Andrew Jones, the ELAC Adante AF-61 tower loudspeakers are bar-none the finest all-around-sounding floorstanders in their class. Nothing else comes close. What Jones and company achieved with the internationally acclaimed Debut and Uni-Fi Series, they do in triplicate here. The value, sonics, craftsmanship, engineering, and appearance are utterly off the charts. AF-61 stands as a breakthrough that will force nearly every other speaker manufacturer to rethink their approach. ELAC loads AF-61 with
with cutting-edge technology, no-compromise structural elements, and
innovative solutions to age-old challenges. The expertise, logic, and
quality invested in AF-61 translate into clean,
natural, accurate, authoritative playback and unbelievably realistic
bass that defies every reasonable expectation. You can read more
in-depth about the specifics of AF-61's complex
features and technical details below. But what matters most is what it
all means for you: Reference-setting performance at an unprecedented
affordable cost. We want you to hear these groundbreaking musical
instruments – backed by our 100% Money-Back Satisfaction Guarantee – as soon as humanly possible. Everything about them stirs the soul and makes listening to music more fun.

ELAC's interport-coupled cavity
cabinet – an elaborate, inherently superior configuration almost never
found in speakers in this price bracket – ranks supreme among AF-61's revelatory attributes. Jointly responsible for AF-61's prodigious low-end ability, each cabinet really contains multiple enclosures in one. AF-61's
concentric midrange and tweeter get their own space in the cabinet,
completely isolated from the three pairs of woofers, which reside in
three divided chambers – all vented by dual ports. Equally
significant, AF-61's entire enclosure bypasses
external porting – eliminating any noise caused by potential
overdriving. The intricate setup also yields significantly greater
output ability, tighter, more extended low-frequency information, and
lower distortion than speakers that employ conventional external ports.
You'll immediately hear the difference.

The drivers and tweeter inside AF-61 are the realization of audiophile dreams. Every Adantemodel
uses identical concentric midrange/tweeter and low-frequency drivers,
all completely created anew by Jones and his team specifically for the
series. The three-way AF-61 employs one one-inch
soft-dome concentric tweeter, one 5.25-inch aluminum-cone midrange,
three internally mounted 6.5-inch aluminum-cone woofers, and three
eight-inch aluminum-cone passive woofers. Each active driver remains
invisible to the naked eye and works in concert with a larger,
front-firing passive partner. The piston movement of the latter
supplies taut, tuneful, powerful bass while the active driver benefits
from exceptional linearity created by the interport-coupled cavity
cabinet. AF-61's active/passive combination is equaled
in both technical and sonic magnificence by the concentric midrange
and tweeter pairing. Providing remarkable point-source precision, power
handling, articulation, and speed, AF-61's concentric mid/tweeter epitomizes aural naturalism and clarity. 

With AF-61, everything harmonizes. ELAC goes
as far to make certain the beautiful face of each cabinet – an
elegant, bonded-aluminum front baffle chosen for maximum rigidity –
boasts contours that incorporate advanced waveguides that ensure
optimal dispersion from the drivers. Striking, furniture-grade finishes
available in three colors and the presence of four metal binding posts
on every AF-61 further up the ante of a loudspeaker that will be talked about for decades to come. Order a pair risk-free today and join the conversation.

Interport-Coupled Cavity Cabinet Isolates Concentric Midrange and Tweeter from Woofer Complements

AF-61's interport-coupled cavity cabinet renders
superior low frequency performance. The engineering challenges
and complicated manufacturing requirements makes such a design a rarity
in affordable speakers, but Andrew Jones' pursuit of a new
value-to-performance benchmark demanded the no-compromise solution.
Each cabinet is actually multiple enclosures in one. The concentric
midrange/tweeter gets isolated in its own space within the cabinet, and
the woofer complement – comprising an active and passive driver –
occupies a divided chamber internally vented with dual ports. In AF-61,
three double chambers isolate each woofer pair from the other. In
addition, the entire enclosure is not externally ported, since those
designs produce noise and other distortion if the speaker is
overdriven. The coupled-cavity design also means the active driver
remains invisible. It is internally mounted in its own rear box that
vents bass energy through dual bass ports to a front box enclosing a
larger passive radiator. The piston action of the front-firing
passive driver delivers tight, tuneful, extended low-frequency
information and boasts greater output capability than a traditional
externally ported enclosure. 

Dynamic, Powerful, Fast, and Taut Bass Performance: Newly Devised Woofers Act in Concert 

Two newly devised woofers deliver extraordinary
low-frequency performance that's far superior to less-complex driver
and cabinet solutions. AF-61 touts three pairs of these woofers.
Engineered specifically to work in concert with the elaborate
interport-coupled cavity cabinet, the first woofer is a 6.5-inch active
driver with wide-band frequency response. It features an aluminum cone
and cast basket assembly with a substantial magnet and voice coil. The
aluminum cone is fast, stiff, and low in distortion artifacts. Mounted
inside the complex cabinet structure, it remains invisible to the eye
but readily apparent to the ear. A lightweight, front-firing eight-inch
passive radiator partners with the active driver. It is mounted to the
bonded-aluminum front baffle of the speaker cabinet and features a
stiff aluminum diaphragm and cast basket assembly. The low weight makes
the passive radiator faster and less prone to distortion artifacts.
Plus, it moves air more quickly, with minimal coloration. Together, the
active/passive combination handles all the power it takes to deliver
low-frequency crescendos with the dynamic realism of a live
performance. Each Adante model uses identical concentric
midrange/tweeter and low-frequency drivers.

Sublime Accuracy, Breathtaking Articulation, Exceptional Output: Concentric Driver and Soft-Dome Tweeter 

ELAC's proprietary concentric driver technology
reaches new heights via a brand-new design that delivers astounding
point-source accuracy, linearity, power handling, speed, and
articulation. The large 5.25-inch diameter midrange cone, made of pure
aluminum for maximum rigidity with lowest coloration, features
a revised profile and generous two-inch voice coil that results in
greater output level and higher sensitivity. The voice coil
also provides more room for a newly engineered soft-dome tweeter
comprised of a cutting-edge fabric material and employing a wide
surround that results in improved lower-treble output as well as lower
resonant and crossover frequencies. Additionally, the entire concentric
driver chassis is mechanically isolated from the other drivers and the
cabinet via anti-vibration mountings that eliminate the transmission
of vibration throughout the loudspeaker.

Crossover Network Fine-Tuned Specifically for Adante: Cabinet Doubles as a Low-Pass Filter

AF-61's interport-coupled cavity cabinet enhances
the linearity of the active bass transducer by reducing driver
excursions. Optimized cabinet volumes further allow for a crossover
network tuned to take advantage of such a design. An internally vented
box, with another box in front housing a passive radiator, acoustically
translates to the front box becoming a second-order acoustic low-pass
filter, eliminating the requirement for two orders of electrical
network and further reducing distortion. 

Connect AF-61 to Match Your Needs: Dual Sets of Five-Way Binding Posts Provide Options

Each AF-61 arrives equipped with a dual set of
binding posts. A supplied link allows use of a single pair of speaker
cables and only two posts, while dual posts allow the option of
bi-wiring with a single amplifier or choosing bi-amplification with the
use of two amplifiers – one for the concentric midrange/tweeter and the
other for low-frequency drivers.
