 Underwood Hifi is now a full line ELAC dealer.

The ELAC UF-5 has been called the best $1000.00 pair of speakers made by more than one publication. It uses their Andrew Jones designed concentric midrange/tweeter with a 1" soft dome tweeter and 4" Aluminum cone midrange for great imaging and augments this coaxial driver with three (3) 5.25" aluminum cone woofers for fast clean bass. We love this speakers and its bookshelf version the UB-5 at $499.00 a pair

CNet summed with:

"The Bottom Line The Elac UF5 are our favorite speakers under $1,000 combining unheard-of transparency with enough kick to tempt rock and dance fans."

Part Time Audiophile summed with:

"Fortunately for folks like me who live within the confines of a real-world budget, audio technology has both advanced and trickled down to the point that the level of quality in sound reproduction available from these ELACs would have been unthinkable just 20 years ago, particularly at $1000 price point."

"Of course, being too inexpensive has its downsides as well, as I mentioned earlier in this review. If a component isn’t expensive enough, or if it’s wrapped in vinyl instead of a rare (but sustainable, of course) African wood veneer, it tends not to be taken seriously by the audiophile community. I myself am vulnerable to such thinking, as I am sure many of you are. Make no mistake though: the ELAC UF5 should be taken seriously as a contender for anyone looking to spend upwards of $5000 on a pair of dedicated, high-end tower speakers. I’d even wager to say that if ELAC chose to clothe the speakers in a fancy automotive paint job or an exotic hardwood veneer, they could easily ask $3000 to $5000 for a pair and have no trouble at all getting them to sell."

"In the end, I fully believe that Andrew Jones/ELAC made the right choice by putting the money where it matters: into the sound."

Home Theater Review summed with:

"I've heard a huge number of $1,000-per-pair tower speakers. I did my first shootout of them for an industry magazine about 20 years ago...and the UF5 is the best I've heard to date. It's a great value, it's impeccably engineered, and it simply sounds great. Plop a couple down in your living room, hook 'em up to a decent receiver or amp, and you'll experience some of the best sound the audio biz has to offer--at a cost that an average household can easily afford."
