ELAC is one of the oldest audio manufacturers in the world. The company’s philosophy has always been to think beyond the present and focus on the future. It all started on September 1st, 1926 in Kiel, Germany, when Electroacoustic GmbH was founded. The company’s original focus has been on the research of sound transmission in air and water and development of sonar technology.
The company’s obsession with music started in 1948 with their first consumer audio product, which was a PW-1 record player. Since then ELAC has earned a fantastic reputation in the audio industry. Their main focus at the time was on pioneering the turntable technology and other electronics. This was proven to be a very successful strategy in the 1970s and 1980s as people who were into music were willing to invest in high-quality turntables.
Throughout its history ELAC has been in a leading position in the world of music electronics as they offered advanced technology, uncompromising sound quality and excellent design. ELAC speakers are a popular choice amongst consumers as they have always represented a good value for money and offered extensive ranges of products.
At present ELAC offers a wide range of speakers and audio electronics alike. The company delivers on its promise of stunning performance, exquisite craftsmanship and unequalled value, all combined with the unmistakable ELAC style. Their products are ready to enhance your home audio setup in the best way possible.
In 2016, ELAC celebrated its 90th anniversary with the introduction of the Discovery Music Server, Debut and Uni-Fi speaker series and the Miracord 90 Anniversary turntable, firmly positioning itself as a future proof audio solution.
